Obama: You Were Right About My Plan

The Democrats came within a whisker of passing the health care takeover plan and would have succeeded if Scott Brown had not won the Senate seat in Massachusetts. The backroom deals that certainly involved Obama were all wrapped up and the Democrats, who figured they would win in Massachusetts, were ready to pass the plan one way or another. The Brown win stopped that for now.

For nearly a year we have been saying that the plan will not allow people to keep their health care if they like it and that there were other things in there that Obama promised would not be. When he spoke to Republicans in Baltimore he admitted that what he promised was not in that bill actually was:

If you look at the package that we’ve presented — and there’s some stray cats and dogs that got in there that we were eliminating, we were in the process of eliminating. For example, we said from the start that it was going to be important for us to be consistent in saying to people if you can have your — if you want to keep the health insurance you got, you can keep it, that you’re not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making. And I think that some of the provisions that got snuck in might have violated that pledge.” [emphasis mine] Ace of Spades

Obama was ready to sign the bill as soon as it hit his desk and Democrats were working against the clock to get it to him before his State of the Union Address so he could do just that. There is no way that Obama would have vetoed the bill. In other words, he would have signed it with the provisions that were “snuck” in there.

There is also no doubt that Obama knew that this was in the bill. He is now admitting what we knew all along.

They have been dishonest and worked hard to ram this down our throats. We have the people of Massachusetts to thank for derailing this process, at least for now.

The Democrats are dishonest and they knew exactly what they were doing. They want to control our lives and they will lie, cheat, and steal to do so.

The big question is, if this item that violated a pledge was “snuck” in there how many other items that violated promises were “snuck” in there?

For nearly a year we were told that we were exaggerating the details or misleading people. It is now evident that Obama and the Democrats were the ones being dishonest.

They need to scrap this entire bill, work on the economy and come back to health care when people are back to work.

And when they come back they need common sense solutions that address the small portion of the population that is uninsured, make it more affordable for the rest of us (with free market solutions) and keep government out of our lives.

    I guess the part about “we were in the process of eliminating” slipped your mind in all your phony outrage?

    “For nearly a year we were told that we were exaggerating the details or misleading people.”

    Find me the stuff about death panels and euthanasia. Find me public opinion that is opposed to a public option. Find me the stuff about taxpayer funded abortions. When you find any of that then you can claim we were wrong to say you exaggerated or mislead the nation on health care reform…

      That would depend on if you actually are fool enough to believe anything he says- he has a remarkable record of saying one thing and then doing the exact opposite- in Texas, we call that LYING- I don’t know what you call it in Biden’s state, perhaps a “slip of the tongue?” A “Bidenism?”
      It is LYING- plain and simple, and I would say it to his face- I can respect the office, all while detesting with all my heart his hypocrisy- at least my eyes are clear enough to see it- what about yours?

    • Big Dog says:

      Those items were pointed out on a number of occasions. You said they meant something different.

        The right wing has done nothing but lie the entire year the Democrats have worked on a bill. It was nice seeing Obama call out Republicans for their lies on health care and other things last week.
