For your own good!
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) pushed back hard Wednesday against those hammering ObamaCare for forcing some patients out of their current insurance plans…
“While you might like your old plan, what you’re going to get under the new plan is that [it does] not discriminate on the basis of pre-existing conditions, does not deny you a key benefit like … maternal, mental health or prescription drug coverage and cannot drop you when you are sick,” Pelosi said during a press conference in the Capitol.
“These are part of the patients’ bill of rights, which is a vast improvement over other plans.”
Which is bull$#!+. But even if it were true, Nancy, that’s not what you geniuses promised. You never said, “If you like your plan, you’re going to get a different plan,” you jittery, prevaricating harpy. If you had, if you’d ever said a single true thing about Obamacare, it never would’ve passed.
This whole mess is built on enormous lies and empty promises you knew you couldn’t keep. So hey, what’s one more? Go right ahead, Palomino. Enough suckers will believe your lies to get you through another day.
And of course, we all know whose fault this is:
Republicans have jumped at the news, accusing the Democrats of breaking their promises and citing the shift in coverage as evidence that the underlying healthcare law is unworkable.
The reason the Republicans are accusing the Democrats of breaking their promises is that the Democrats have brazenly broken their promises. Hope that helps.
“If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. Period.” That’s not an “overly broad generalization,” or an “imprecise blanket statement” that’s now being contradicted by a few million counterexamples, or any of the other euphemisms the Obama administration’s water-carriers want to use.
It was a damn lie. And President Barack Obama told it over and over and over again.
The only question at this point is whether Obama even realizes what he’s saying as he’s saying it. Is he an android? Do they just plug this crap into his GUI and set him loose?
Because the only other explanation is that he’s a pathological liar.
As a lot of us have been saying for five full years now.
