Liar! Pinocchio! Deceiver!
With all the charges flying against President Obama in the on-going effort to stop ObamaCare it’s time for a reality check.
Having failed to kill the Affordable Care Act in Congress by shutting down the government the opposition is currently taking delight in charging the
president with lying to the public when he said anyone who likes their current healthcare plan will be able to keep it under the new law.
Just to add some balance to the hate parade against Obama and the ACA. From Fox News no less.
The President did promise something that was not realistic and as such is a lie. I do believe he did not intend to lie but circumstances (insurance
company positioning) and law (a base line for insurance policies) conspired to make him a liar.
That said, it's a personal attack on the President and has no bearing whatsoever on the value of the Affordable Care Act.
It's just more noise. It's a distraction.
The question, whether ACA, is good for 'most' US residents has been decided in the Legislation and the Courts as provided in the Constitution,
Article I, Section I.
All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of
Those opposed, clearly, do not respect the Document nor do they comprehend how a republic works.
It's unrealistic to judge a new Law by it's implementation ( I'm horrified at the digital rollout - the only benefit being drawing attention to
overly complex legislation and other points). Valid complaint - very valid. Means the program it's self is bad - No.
Judging a program, a national program, by specific peoples experiences, is also not a valid measure of a programs worth and benefit to the Nation.
I hear horror stories about every system (private - when have you heard someone praise a telecom co? or public - Medicare has many holes) but that
doesn't speak to the value of the service.
