Letter: Obama avoids problems in hopes that they will vanish

The roll-out of Obamacare has been nothing but a debacle.

Mr. Obama promised to bring in a boatload of “techies” to solve the problems he didn’t count on. He was also unaware of the Fast and Furious scandal, but promises to get to the bottom of the problem. Likewise with the IRS scandal involving Lois Lerner, who has retired with full benefits and might testify before Congress after she has already taken the Fifth — but he will “get to the bottom of it.”

And more of the same with Benghazi, where “people will be held accountable,” but no one knows where he was that night; and Hillary Clinton, who will probably run for president, says, “What does it matter at this point?”

I can’t believe he is so unaware of what is going on in his administration. I think he knows exactly what has transpired and has so far skillfully avoided being taken to task due to a love affair with the liberal media. I can’t help but think this problem with Obamacare is just another way to get us to the single-payer system like Canada and Britain, which he has advocated for from the beginning. He just ignores problems until people seem to give up and go away.

    What Thomas is trying to say is; Can you Imagine if the President had told the truth ever in his life? Well, we would be arguing about this man today; now would we? I can imagine that when Barack Obama was a boy in Hawaii, and his teacher asked him why he wasn't in class the day before, he lied. And then when his teacher told him that he was seen, with his friends, throwing rotten papayas at Haole from the overpass. He just shrugged his shoulders and said, " It wasn't me, I love Haole, but I'll be sure to look into it for you ". Wake-up! you Obama lovers. Haven't you heard the one, "fool me once... fool me twice..."? I guess not, because this man has fooled you numerous times for a multitude of years. How can that be explained? Is it that Obama supporters are too stupid to see the truth? or, is it that they believe deception employed for the advancement of the "greater good" needs no apology. All I know is that your "greater good" has a putrid stink, and blaming the dog just ain't workin' no more!

    Can you imagine if the administration came out and said there would be those who's insurance policies would not meet standards and the insurance companies would cancel you? There would be mass hysteria and Fox would have a field day as people scrambled to find out if their policy was going to be cancelled? Even though they had policies through their employers which would not be cancelled. Reputable companies would not be cancelling you but the shyster companies would and should be.

    The lies of the Obama administration are now so blatant and undeniable that even the mainstream media is starting to expose them. NBC News reported today that “millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.”

    NBC News goes on to report:

    …50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”

    …the administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.

    Yet President Obama, who had promised in 2009, “if you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan,” was still saying in 2012, “If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”

    Like everything else spouted by Obama, all these claims were of course outrageous lies.

    Lies within lies wrapped in lies and packaged in the language of “benefits”

    Obama is not merely a liar but a sociopathic liar who feels no remorse for the massive social cost of his actions. He deliberately misleads Americans into supporting a plan that was designed from the start to destroy the American economy and leave tens of millions of people medical bankrupt with no insurance whatsoever.

    This isn’t simply a debate about who wins or loses, it’s an issue that impacts the lives of tens of millions of Americans. It now appears that 16 million Americans will lose their health insurance thanks to Obamacare, and employers are slashing job hours, employment positions and more. Obamacare is devastating the U.S. economy and culture like an economic apocalypse.

    Here are just a few of the lies we’ve all been told by Obama and his criminal cohorts:

    LIE #1) “The average family insurance plan will cost $2500 less per year.”

    LIE #2) “You can keep your plan, period.” (Total lie!)

    LIE #3) “You can keep your doctor.” (Vicious lie!)

    LIE #4) “The ACA will only add $900 billion to the deficit over the next ten years.” (Mathematical lie.)

    LIE #5) “This is all about providing affordable health insurance to nearly all Americans.” (In truth, it’s all about the utter destruction of the U.S. economy, workers and employers.)

    Rate increases of 400% – 500% or more now common

    As we’re all now discovering, Obamacare isn’t “affordable” health care; it’s health care mandated at price-gouging monopoly rates.

    For example, as NBC News reports:

    George Schwab, 62, of North Carolina, said he was “perfectly happy” with his plan from Blue Cross Blue Shield, which also insured his wife for a $228 monthly premium. But this past September, he was surprised to receive a letter saying his policy was no longer available. The “comparable” plan the insurance company offered him carried a $1,208 monthly premium and a $5,500 deductible.

    Natural News reported on a case where one couple was being told they would have to pay 539% more for health care coverage, thanks to Obamacare. Their rates were going up from $212 per month to $1,356.60 per month.

    For Obama to call these health care plans “affordable” is an outrageous lie, and it’s going to financially devastate millions of families across America who simply cannot afford these outlandish rate increases. Yes, even those who voted for Obamacare and optimistically supported Obamacare are going to be hit with higher rates, too.

    Americans outraged at depth of multi-layered betrayal, lies, deceit by Obama and the Democrats

    Here are just a few of the user comments on the revelation that Obama and the Democrats KNEW all this would happen but lied about it anyway:

    What a low life piece of garbage steny hoyer is. The dems LIED to ALL Americans and don’t give a damn that they did. If this doesn’t outrage the people who bought into obamacare then this country is finished. Socialism has won. What a sad day for this once great country, America, land of the used to be free.

    They knew and still they went along with the lie. The republicans tried and tried to warn everybody and were demonized for it by the media and the rest of the libs. I bet this still doesn’t wake the drones up from their stupor.

    I guess people aren’t laughing at Ted Cruz anymore.

    Did they also know that their agenda would be toxic to the business community, and that in the first year of the socialist’s second term, 90 million people would be unemployed? Did they know more people would require food stamps and disability payments? Did they know that millions of young people would be without jobs or hope? How much did they know? And WHY do they hate America?

    Even back in 2009 when they were hiding behind locked doors, keeping the Republicans from finding out this stuff they had already decided to screw the population. You must be an idiot to support Democrats when they do stuff like that. Now the Republicans are demonized for trying to protect the citizens from this sleazy, mean spirited BS.

    So on how many other occasions such as COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM are you also lying. At this point we will assume 100% of the time.

    They KNEW and they LIED. It’s time to light up the Congressional switchboard.

    To a liberal a lie is completely truthful as long as it suckers you.

    “…I think the message was accurate.” – Thank you Steny, I’m sure it was our fault, we must have listened wrong.

    Liars. And it’s none of their damned business what coverage is appropriate for anyone. Who made Obama a health care expert? As a 59 year old woman that is not having more children, I don’t need maternity coverage. With this regime, who knows what will happen tho? King Obama for sure. He needs to go, along with all of them.

    I have no insurance, before obamacare I was responsible for 100% of my health care costs. After obamacare I’m still responsible for 100% of my health care costs, but I have to pay the government a fine out of the money I was going to pay for my health care with. Is this a great plan or what?

    The degree of betrayal found in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is finally coming to the surface… and it’s intense. As a top Democrat admitted today, the Democrats knew all along that Obamacare would cause millions to lose health care coverage. Yet they continued to promote it with premeditated lies such as, “You can keep your current health plan if you like it” and “your health insurance costs will be lower than a phone bill.”

    “We knew that there would be some policies that would not qualify and therefore people would [lose their existing coverage],” said House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer in a NationalReview.com article.

    National Review goes on to report this astonishing exchange:

    Asked by another reporter how repeated statements by Obama to the contrary weren’t “misleading,” Hoyer said “I don’t think the message was wrong. I think the message was accurate. It was not precise enough…[it] should have been caveated with — ‘assuming you have a policy that in fact does do what the bill is designed to do.’”

    In other words, lying to the public is not “wrong.” It’s accurate but not precise!

    This is how Democrats think, of course: lie to the public to gain their contrived support, and then when things go wrong, shove a gun in everyone’s face to force them to comply with their Big Government mandates. That’s the entire plan of Obamacare and most socialists: obedience at gunpoint. Mao would have been proud to call Obamacare his own.

    The lies of the Obama administration are now so blatant and undeniable that even the mainstream media is starting to expose them. NBC News reported today that “millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.”

    Sonia,
    Obama knows all that happened in every event.
    The only thing Obama might be worried about is his popularity.
    Few people could accept that Obama has a boss and he is following orders.
    Obama would dare try to change things to remain as president one more term, if he could get away with it. Why would he let a little bit of Constitution with term limits get in his way, if he could also circumvent a little matter of not having been born in one of the states of the union?
