Why Obama's Lies Isn't Over, and Will Get Bigger

A Column by the Editor
web posted November 18, 2013

COLUMN By now even some liberals and Obama voters are waking up to Obama's "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan," lie as millions of people began getting notices their insurance was going to be cancelled because of ObamaCare. Another lie Obama consistently told the American people is that ObamaCare was going to, "lower the cost of insurance for a family of four by $2,500." Insurance premiums are going through the roof and the worst of ObamaCare hasn't even started yet.

Most people get their news in sound-bites from the major networks, who are doing their dead level best to keep from calling Obama a liar in reporting he lied. They ignore the other lie, lower costs, and fail to mention that Obama, using unconstitutional powers, has put the worst off until he is out of office when the house of cards comes crashing down.

Big businesses required to meet conditions under the law were given a pass during the rollout, then small businesses, leaving just those who buy their insurance on the private market, not through their employer's plans. But those "waivers" are only short lived and will kick in causing 93,000,000 workers to loose their insurance due to ObamaCare. A fact Obama knew in 2010, but kept on lying.

This is why Obama, trying to save the political necks of his fellow Democrats who demanded, as Nancy Pelosi did, "We have to pass the bill to find out what's in it," and then voted to pass it without reading it and without a single Republican voting for the law. Now that Americans who didn't bother to heed Republican's continuous warnings of how bad the law was, are now being hit hard in the dearest thing to all of us, our healthcare.

The US Census Department just released data that shows there are more people getting government handouts than there are who are full-time year-round workers. There were 108,592,000 people in the United States in the fourth quarter of 2011 who were recipients of one or more means-tested government benefit programs, the Census Bureau said in data released this week. Meanwhile, according to the Census Bureau, there were 101,716,000 people who worked full-time year round in 2011. That included both private-sector and government workers.
The "poor" will get heavy government subsidies to offset their high premiums. And who gets to pay for that? Those who are working, not allowed a subsidy, and will be paying for everyone else's insurance through a plan that offers less than what they have now at nearly double, and sometimes triple, the cost.

And the number on the dole have more than doubled since Obama took office, blowing a bigger hole in the budget.

Which brings us to another lie by Obama, "I will cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term." He more than doubled it and increases it more than a trillion dollars a year. Just wait till the cost of ObamaCare kicks in. The US economy will nearly, if not completely, collapse. All by design by Obama and the Democrats.

As I stated prior, I believe they need to implement all of ObamaCare just as the law reads - now. If they do, I doubt there will be more than a handful of Democrats elected in 2014. That's why the media is hiding the bigger parts of Obama's lies and his so-called "fix" only lasts a year, you will then loose coverage right after the elections.
