The best thing you can say about the Obamacare legislation and recent rollout is that the president lied. He lied about “keeping your plan” and “keeping your doctor”. He lied about the cost savings. He lied to the American people to sell it.That is the best spin that can be put on what he said.
What’s worse? We now know — based on recently-surfaced memos — that all of his advisors and speech writers also knew that keeping your plan and doctor was not true. This is more heinous than just the President lying. In this event, the American President and his coterie willfully and deliberately deceived the American public in order to push forth a complex and expensive piece of controversial legislation on which Obama was to hang his legacy.
And what if Obama didn’t know? That is the most terrible scenario of all. That our President is surrounded by people who knowingly and unabashedly lied to him about an important bill. If they can lie about health care legislation to the President and to our citizens, what else have they lied about? Benghazi? The IRS? Fast and Furious? How much has the media and Congress aided and abetted the deception? How could the office of the President be reduce to a mere shell — and by Obama the Wunderkind, no less? And more incredibly, when the President did find out that he had been lied to by his most trusted advisors and speech writers he did nothing about it! Not one head rolled.
If, in fact, Obama expressly lied to the country about Obamacare,it is outrageous and reprehensible. But it is Obama’s best scenario. Because the other scenarios, and their implications for our country and for our Executive Branch, are frighteningly worse.
