“Your mission, Jonathan, should you decide to accept it, is to write a health care bill that redistributes wealth, exploits stupid American voters and grossly deceives the American people. As usual, should you or any member of your Obamacare Force be caught telling the truth, President Obama will disavow any knowledge of your existence. This tape will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Jonathan.”
BRISBANE, Australia — President Obama dismissed renewed criticism of his signature health care law Sunday and disputed an assertion from a former architect of the policy who claimed the administration had deceived lawmakers.
Jonathan Gruber, an economist, suggested last year that the administration’s signature health-care legislation passed in part because of the “stupidity of the American voter” and a “lack of transparency” over its funding mechanisms.
“I just heard about this,” Obama said at a new conference, after wrapping up two days of meetings with world leaders here at the G-20 Summit. “The fact that some adviser who never worked on our staff expressed his opinion that I completely disagree with — it is no reflection on the actual process that was run.”
“I just heard about this.” Obama’s pattern of denial remains intact.
He never knows squat.
OK, let’s parse this a little. Obama said Gruber “never worked on our staff.” That’s accurate but misleading. Gruber was a consultant. He is the architect of Obamacare and was paid $400,000 for it.
Obama tries the squirrel gambit:
“We had a year-long debate,” Obama said. “Go look back at your stories. One thing we can’t say is that we didn’t have a lengthy debate over health care in the United States. Every press outlet here should go back and pull up every clip and every story. It’s fair to say there is not a provision in the health care law that was not extensively debated and was not fully transparent.”
Yet we know that’s entirely false.
Obama then launches the whopper:
When the president was asked whether he had intentionally misled the public in order to get the law passed, he replied: “No. I did not.”
All you can do is LOL
“That means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health-care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health-care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”
You’ll save $2500 per year
It’s entirely honest to say that Obama lied about everything. He is a liar, has always been a liar, and always be a liar. This uproar is not going away. It’s only beginning. I am hopeful that it will be the spark need to set the repeal haystack ablaze.
