They knew they were lying to us , but it was for our own good , because we are too stupid to make our own choices and need “Big Brother” State to guide us through this life . In the Statist’s eyes we are not competent enough to make our own decisions and run our own lives .

The Incompetence Of Our Neo-Monarchy

 

 

 

” It is a condition of my admission to this great land that I am not allowed to foment the overthrow of the United States government. Oh, I signed it airily enough, but you’d be surprised, as the years go by, how often the urge to foment starts to rise in one’s gullet. Fortunately, at least as far as constitutional government goes, the president of the United States is doing a grand job of overthrowing it all by himself.

On Thursday, he passed a new law at a press conference. George III never did that. But, having ordered America’s insurance companies to comply with Obamacare, the president announced that he is now ordering them not to comply with Obamacare. The legislative branch (as it’s still quaintly known) passed a law purporting to grandfather your existing health plan. The regulatory bureaucracy then interpreted the law so as to un-grandfather your health plan. So His Most Excellent Majesty has commanded that your health plan be de-un-grandfathered. That seems likely to work. The insurance industry had three years to prepare for the introduction of Obamacare. Now the King has given them six weeks to de-introduce Obamacare.”

” On Clinton’s 2007 campaign website, unearthed by America Rising, it is written that that under Hillary’s American Health Choices Plan, “if you have a plan you like, you keep it.” “

 

   Makes sense , she has even more bulls**ting experience that Barack . She and her husband are the undisputed masters at prevarication , equivocation and mendacity . 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obama’s Massive Fraud

 

 

 

” Barack Obama is guilty of fraud — serial fraud — that is orders of magnitude more serious than frauds the Justice Department routinely prosecutes, and that courts punish harshly. The victims will be out billions of dollars, quite apart from other anxiety and disruption that will befall them.

The president will not be prosecuted, of course, but that is immaterial. As discussed here before, the remedy for profound presidential corruption is political, not legal. It is impeachment and removal. “High crimes and misdemeanors” — the Constitution’s predicate for impeachment — need not be indictable offenses under the criminal code. “They relate chiefly,” Hamilton explained in Federalist No. 65, “to injuries done immediately to the society itself.” They involve scandalous breaches of the public trust by officials in whom solemn fiduciary duties are reposed — like a president who looks Americans in the eye and declares, repeatedly, that they can keep their health insurance plans . . . even as he studiously orchestrates the regulatory termination of those plans; even as he shifts blame to the insurance companies for his malfeasance — just as he shifted blame to a hapless video producer for his shocking dereliction of duty during the Benghazi massacre.”

” There’s a lot of missing space to be filled in the map below(Ed. Above) , but what it shows is the states where at least 2,330,000 individual health insurance policies have been discontinued or cancelled as a direct result of the implementation of Obamacare:

Here’s where you can find an interactive version of the map, which shows the number of reported Obamacare-driven health insurance policy cancellations reported as of November 2, 2013.

Here’s a short summary of the states for which that data has been reported: Alabama (87,000)Alaska (5,400)California (279,000)Florida (300,000)Kansas (20,000)Kentucky (280,000)Michigan (140,000)Minnesota (146,000)Montana (20,000)New Jersey (800,000)New York (100,000)Oregon (150,000), and Wyoming (2,600)

For the numbers we do have, we now count over 3.8 million Americans who have been notified by their insurers that they have been forced out of their health insurance plan they liked because of the “Affordable Care Act”. “

 

 

This is just a preliminary count , so hang onto your wallets , things are going to get worse . Read more .

If You Like Your Plan

 

    By now we are sure that you are aware of the administration’s sorry attempts to “qualify” Obama’s statement that you could keep it … IF … and that’s a big IF , the insurance companies continued to offer your policy . The bald-face lying that this man is allowed to perpetrate on the American public completely unchallenged , nay , facilitated by , the very media that dares lay claim to the title of “watchdog” is unfathomable to us amateur “pajama-clad , basement-dwellers” of the blogosphere .

 

Peter Wehner at Commentary says it succinctly enough …

 

” That is not, in fact, what the president said. Not by a country mile.

What Mr. Obama actually said, dozens of times, is a variation of what he said during a speech to the American Medical Association on June 15, 2009: “That means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health-care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health-care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”

But Mr. Obama is not your ordinary, run-of-the-mill fabulist. It appears as if he’s in the process of becoming an inveterate one. He was, after all, building one untruth upon another. I say that because by now it’s obvious to nearly everyone, including liberals, that the president and his aides knew that when he made his initial claim that under the Affordable Care Act you will be able to keep your health-care plan “no matter what”–that you would keep it “period”–he knew the assertion was false. Yet he repeated it over and over again. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Forbes: White House Predicted in 2010 That 93 Million Would Lose Their Health Plans Under ObamaCare

 

 

” To counter accusations that the President lied when he repeatedly told Americans they can keep their health insurance plans if they liked them, the administration has claimed that he was referring to the millions of people covered by their employers.

An article from Forbes Thursday thoroughly refutes this claiming that Obama officials back in 2010 predicted that 93 million Americans would have their plans cancelled as a result of ObamaCare including a vast amount of those with employer-sponsored plans:

If you read the Affordable Care Act when it was passed, you knew that it was dishonest for President Obama to claim that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” as he did—and continues to do—on countless occasions. And we now know that the administration knew this all along. It turns out that in an obscure report buried in a June 2010 edition of the Federal Register, administration officials predicted massive disruption of the private insurance market

“The Departments’ mid-range estimate is that 66 percent of small employer plans and 45 percent of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfather status by the end of 2013,” wrote the administration on page 34552. All in all, more than half of employer-sponsored plans will lose their “grandfather status” and get canceled. According to the Congressional Budget Office, 156 million Americans—more than half the population—was covered by employer-sponsored insurance in 2013.

 

What this means is that not only did Obama lie when he repeatedly told Americans that they can keep their plans if they like them, he also lied in Boston on Wednesday when he said he was referring to the majority of Americans covered by their employers. “
