Rush Limbaugh Talks About Lies of Obamacare
Here's another Rush Limbaugh blog, and he has a lot to say about the broken promises concerning Obamacare.
Today the president is on the road pushing Obamacare while his secretary is grilled about the website in a hearing. Rush points out that the problem is not the website, it's the Obqamacare/Affordable Care Act law it's self, plus the fact that president Obama lied and knew he was lying when he said, "If you like your plan you can keep your plan, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor."
And now the president is saying he didn't say that. Watch the video and you'll hear and see him say it several times. This is what the president is saying now, "Now, if you have or had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law, and you really like that plan, what we said was, "You could keep it if it hasn't changed since the law's passed." So we wrote into the Affordable Care Act, you're grandfathered in on that plan. But if the insurance company changes it, then what we're saying is they've got to change it to a higher standard."
Here are Rush Limbaugh's comments on all of this:
It's just not true, folks. He never, ever said it. Now, this tells me something, by the way. He knows what the law says on this now. The law does say that your plan is grandfathered, but if it changes an iota, if it changes by a nickel, if it changes in the slightest way, it's gone, and you lose your grandfathered status. What he's not telling anybody here is that Obamacare mandates the insurance companies to change these policies by mandating that they cover more, that they charge more. It was never going to be possible for you to keep your plan are the bottom line, and that's what he doesn't know that he's admitting here.
Don't forget the news of last week and two weeks ago. The White House knew, remember, Lisa Myers, NBC News, uncovered this. They knew that Obama was going to go out to lie. They put it on the teleprompter, they knew, and they made a calculated decision that it was better to lie about it to get the thing passed and then deal with the aftermath, which is what they're doing now. They also knew, and it was in the Federal Register, 93 million Americans were going to lose their policies. Ninety-three million Americans could not keep their insurance.
Ninety-three million Americans could not keep their doctor. They knew this. This was in the media last week and the week before. It was known that Obama was telling a falsehood, and it was a calculated plan to do just that. They thought that his goodwill that he had built up with his fans would sustain him through this and that he'd be able to handle the aftermath in typical Obama fashion: deny it, and then claim he didn't know it, and that he's looking out for you -- i.e., the Limbaugh Theorem. But the media is having a tough time. I guess there's even a limit for them.
Here's the problem with this. These are lies. They are calculated purposeful lies. And this is really, really bad. This may be -- and I'm not exaggerating and I'm not trying to do anything for effect here. This may be the biggest presidential lie in our lifetimes. I don't know about things that happened when I wasn't alive, previous presidents, so I'm not gonna say that it's the biggest lie ever, but it certainly probably is the biggest presidential lie in my lifetime, and he knows it.
