BIG LIE Smoking Gun

Nov. 12, 2013

While Obama is busy telling new lies to cover his old lies about keeping doctors and insurance plans, more than a few commentators on the right question if Obama actually knew that he was lying, leaving the door open for a kinder, gentler condemnation. However, consider this clear exchange from a 25 February 2010 conference between Obama and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. In that meeting, Cantor called Obama out on the cancellations: “One of the promises you ought to make is that people ought to be able to keep the health insurance that they have. Between 8 and 9 million people may very well lose the covers that they have because of the construct of this bill. That’s our concern. I don’t think that you can answer the question in the positive that people will be able to maintain their coverage, that people will be a will see the doctors they want in the bill that you’re proposing.” Obama responded, “The 8-9 million people that you refer to who might have to change their coverage would be folks who … would find the deal in the exchange better, would be a better deal, so yes they would change coverage because they have more choices. Let’s just be clear about that!”

Yes Obama, let’s do be clear on that: YOU LIE, PERIOD!
