FLASHBACK: Wasn’t #Obamacare gonna make Healthcare costs go DOWN by 3000%??

Obamacare Snake Oil

Lost among current concerns over the White House’s foreign policy “successes” is an issue much closer to home: the Affordable Care Act and its deleterious effect on our healthcare system, our economy and our nation’s psyche.

Maybe it’s just me, but I’m not seeing the term “Obamacare” used as much as I once did. Of course, that’s likely due to journalists’ desire to shield Obamacare’s namesake from news like this, from Investors Business Daily:

“…Forty-six percent of Americans now describe health costs as ahardship,” up from 36% in 2013…” 

A “hardship”, you say? Almost HALF of the country?

Why not? #EPA says that THEIR subpoenaed emails were “lost” in a “computer crash”, too…

Government computer crash

At this point, it may be easier to compile a list of the Federal Government employees whose computers DIDN’T “crash”.

This time, it’s the EPA which is allegedly suffering from Compu Spontaneius Breakus. But to place this newest chapter into context, a quick refresher is called for:

(via National Journal) –  “…Issa issued a subpoena in November for documents and communications between the Environmental Protection Agency and the Executive Office of the President over a five-year period as part of an inquiry into whether the White House interfered with how the agency responded to congressional inquiries.

Dear #IRS Commissioner Koskinen: “Nobody Believes You”

 

Koskinen - IRS5

Have you ever wondered what the operative definition of “supercilious” was? How about “imperious“? “High-handed“, perhaps? Well, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen’s testimony today is as good an example of all of those as I could have provided previously:

“…I have a long career, that’s the first time anybody has said they don’t believe me…”

Based on the laughable claims you are currently making, Mr. Koskinen, I’d offer that such a description is likely long, long overdue:

“People with Something to Hide”: the #IRS and Lois Lerner

Hey, remember this?

Yes indeed: words spoken by none other than Barack Obama himself. Of course, that was back in 2010 when he was discussing Campaign Finance Reform, a concern which almost sounds quaint in comparison to the Scandal carousel this White House has since become.

Just the same, keep that quote in mind as you watch the following about our ol’ buddy, Lois “I-have-nothing-to-hide-so-I’m-Pleading-the-Fifth” Lerner from the IRS:

Of course: Somehow, GOP is to blame for “Wrongheaded” and “Cynical” distrust of Government…

Can you trust Obama Superman

Obviously, it’s not as if the President and the Democrat-led Senate could ever be to blame:

(via The Hill; May 13, 2013) – “…What’s blocking us right now is a sort of hyper-partisanship in Washington that I was, frankly, hoping to overcome in 2008, and in the midst of crisis rather than saying now’s the time for us to come together, decided to take another path,” Obama said. “My thinking was when we beat them in 2012 that might break the fever, and it’s not quite broken yet.”

“I genuinely believe there are Republicans out there who would like to work with us but they’re fearful of their base and they’re concerned about what Rush Limbaugh might say about them,” Obama said. “And as a consequence we get the kind of gridlock that makes people cynical about government…”

Ah-ha!! So, it was “gridlock” (which was mysteriously created by the combined efforts of the Republican base and Rush Limbaugh) which was/is responsible for Americans becoming increasingly “cynical about government”. Sure. That, like, makes total sense, …right?

Riiiiiiiight.

Okay, so it doesn’t. Which is precisely why barely a year later, the President realized that he needed to remind us all (again) what silly little ninny-heads we seem to be:

This just in: Obama lied to you. Again.

Obama lied. Again.

Seriously, who could be surprised about this anymore?

(via National Review Online) – President Obama is going back on another chief promise he made regarding Obamacare. In a recent interview, he said that people may have to change their doctors because of the health-care law.

In 2009, during debate about the Affordable Care Act, the president claimed that, along with being able to keep your current plans, “if you like the doctor you have, you can keep your doctor, too.”

But in a WebMD interview that aired on Friday, President Obama reneged on that assurance. “For the average person, many folks who don’t have health insurance initially, they’re going to have to make some choices and they might end up having to switch doctors, in part because they’re saving money,” he said.

Video of the exchange is below:

Sniveling cretin Harry Reid to #Obamacare victims: You’re Lying…

Big Lie 5658

Ever hear someone say something so blatantly false that you’re practically stunned into silence (at least temporarily)? Ever hear a lie so bold, so insanely mendacious, that you can’t honestly believe you heard it accurately?

Ever hear a statement that is so categorically untrue, yet uttered with such apparent conviction, that you literally pinch yourself …a couple of times?

To borrow a phrase from Allahpundit: “Am I awake???”  =>

FLASHBACK: the President vows that #Obamacare will be “Deficit Neutral”

How many lies did the president tell in getting Obamacare passed?

As numerous as the stars in the sky…

From ABC News back in November, 2009:

OBAMA: “And I promise you. We’re already starting to look at the fiscal year 2011 budget and the out years, and although we are in the midst of a recession, and we inherited a big structural deficit, no one’s more mindful than me of the fact that we can’t have a bill that simply blows up an additional entitlement that’s not paid for.”
