Obama Health Care Lies
Inspired by an e-mail from Hankmeister...
The fact that President Obama can lie about this health care bill with a straight face shows just how devious, deceptive and dangerous this man really is...
--"You can keep your doctor" (unless your doctor is one of the 33-50% who threaten to leave medicine if this bill passes)
--"You can keep your insurance if you like it" (unless your health insurance company goes bankrupt or your employer dumps your plan)
--"premiums will fall by 14 to 20 percent", or "premiums will fall by 3,000 percent" [take your pick]
--"this plan will reduce the deficit by $138 billion over 10 years" (if you use 'fuzzy math')
--"taxes won't go up on ANYONE making less than $250,000" (but taxes will go up on health insurance companies, medical device makers, etc. and they will pass their costs on to you the consumer)
--"We're going to save Medicare by cutting $500 billion out of the program" (and get rid of the Medicare Advantage program that seniors like)
--"We're going to cut waste, fraud, abuse and inefficiency out of Medicare" (don't hold your breath)
--"Health care won't be rationed" (yeah, right... trust me)
--"Quality of service won't deteriorate" (while we provide coverage for 30 million more people, lose 33-50% of doctors, and government bureaucrats tell us what services we can or can't have... OK, if you say so)
--"We're not going to kill Granny" (we're just going to stand by and watch her die)
--"Doctors perform too many tests", yet... "Tort reform isn't important"
--"It's just like car insurance" (except that you don't need to buy car insurance as a condition of being a U.S. citizen)
--"Illegal aliens won't benefit from this" (except that health insurance companies won't have any capability to prove an applicant is illegal)
--"Health care costs won't go up" (are you on drugs man!)
I'm beginning to think Obama is a pathological liar.
