LA Times

"All we've been hearing the last three years is if you like your policy you can keep it.... I'm infuriated because I was lied to," one woman told this newspaper, as part of a story on how some middle-class Californians have been stunned to learn the real costs of Obamacare.

And that lie looks like the biggest lie about domestic policy ever uttered by a U.S. president.

The burning question about Barack Obama is whether he was simply "playing to win" and therefore lying on purpose, or whether his statements about Obamacare were just another example of, as Obama once put it, "I actually believe my own" spin, though he used another word.

"No matter how we reform healthcare, we will keep this promise to the American people," he told the American Medical Assn. in 2009. "If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your healthcare plan, you'll be able to keep your healthcare plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what."

No matter how you slice it, that was a lie.

That appears to be the new rationalization for Obama's bait-and-switch. "Right now all that insurance companies are saying is, 'We don't meet the requirements under Obamacare, but we're going to offer you a better deal!'" explained Juan Williams on "Fox News Sunday."

A better deal according to whom? Say I like my current car. The government says under some new policy I will be able to keep it and maybe even lower my car payments. But once the policy is imposed, I'm told my car now isn't street-legal. Worse, I will have to buy a much more expensive car or be fined by the IRS. But, hey, it'll be a much better car! Why, even though you live in Death Valley, your new car will have great snow tires and heated seats.

This is what the government is saying to millions of Americans who don't want or need certain coverage, including, for instance, older women — and men — who are being forced to pay for maternity care.

At least Darth Vader was honest about his bait-and-switch:



WHOA. This from a liberal rag. Is the bloom off the rose?

It's not like we didn't warn people about Zer0 and his band of communist criminals.

I hope the Times chokes on it.

I've having a hard time being sympathetic to these cretins. They pushed for it, they voted for it, they asked for it, they are the ones who should have to live with the consequences.

The rest of us should get the same exemptions Congress and staff are getting. As a matter of fact, since we fought against it, we voted against it, we didn't want it, we had it forced down our throats in the middle of the night - we are the only ones who should be getting an exemption from it.

That's my 2 cents.

I could not agree with you more.
