Obamacare: Lies and Broken Promises

One should not use the words "lie" or "liar" indiscriminately. At some level all politicians lie. We all have told lies.

President Obama has taken lying about his so-called "affordable care" law to a new level. Millions of people are not getting to keep their insurance coverage because it doesn't measure up to a standard established in Washington. Millions more are seeing steep increases in deductables and premiums. US News & World Report says the nation's top hospitals may not accept Obamacare policies. Most of the top hospitals, reports US News, will accept insurance from just one or two companies operating under Obamacare.

This is all about wrecking the insurance industry and creating a single-payer system run by government. The president has repeatedly promised otherwise and even today is still making promises various news reports say he knew were lies when he first made them early in his administration. We can fix this in the next two elections if voters don't get blinded by the media promoting Hillary Clinton for president and Democrats for Congress.
