BIG LIE Smoking Gun

Obama acknowledges cancelations in 2010.

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!
