Obama flew in to Boston today to deliver another “ShamWow”-style
infomercial for Obamacare, and it went about as well as his entourage’s
snarled traffic debacle in Beantown.
As millions of Americans
are being kicked off their desired insurance plans and seeing their
premiums skyrocket, the President had a lot of 'splaining to do today.
For starters we anticipated a Presidential apology for lying to
Americans repeatedly when he promised things like, “If you like your
current health care plan, you can keep it.” Make no mistake, he knew he
was lying when he said that. And make no further mistake, after five
years of false Obama claims, no one should actually expect contrition on
this administration’s part.
Bloomberg reports that in June of
2010, the administration knew millions would be kicked off existing
healthcare plans due to Obamacare; but President Obama continued to
knowingly deceive the American people with repeated claims that if we
liked our current plan we could keep it.
So, finally busted,
did the President apologize? Was remorse and sympathy shown for
Americans who now can’t afford health insurance thanks to Obamacare?
Nope. He instead informed us that Americans who receive cancellation
notices have been on “substandard” plans supplied by “bad apple”
insurers. That’s right. Obama didn’t lie to you when he said, “if you
like your plan, you can keep it.” Why? Because, you sillies, you DIDN’T
REALLY like the plan you chose for yourselves! No arguing. Barack Obama
knows best and he’ll tell you whether you actually liked your insurance
plan or not. If you’re an elderly bachelor, your old plan was clearly
“substandard” because it didn’t offer maternity care. What’s that you
say? You don’t need maternity care? Well, according to the President
today, he says you do, and any insurance plan that doesn’t offer it is a
“junk” plan provided by a “bad apple” insurer.
worry, the President also promised that only “rich” people making
$250,000 or more will see their premium costs rise. This lie is so
appalling and so easily debunked that the brazenness with which he made
it is simply breathtaking. But who will hold him accountable for it?
Media, you know I love you... so let me help you save your hide with the
American public by suggesting you fact-check that.
Obamacare rollout disaster and the broken government website (which HHS
Secretary Sebelius admitted is a “debacle” in her testimony before
Congress today), the President gleefully highlighted the few people
signing up for Obamacare as indicative of his socialized medicine’s
“success.” He neglected to mention that the government is forcing
Americans to sign up for his program or pay fines that will increase
each year we fail to do so.
For sheer chutzpah, the President
closed his speech by praising America’s “rugged individualism.” Because
nothing says “rugged individualism” like heavy-handed big government
forcing individuals to buy a product they don’t want and arrogantly
telling them they didn’t really like the product they wisely chose for
themselves and could afford.
Thanks for the infomercial, Mr.
President. I don’t know anyone who wants your “ShamWow” product, but the
IRS will make sure we call that toll free number or go online to order
it right now…. well, just as soon as your impossibly broken $600 million
website is fixed and your phones lines aren’t busy.
Happy with this, America? Make your voices heard. 2014 is just around the corner.

P.S. Take a look at this article by Fox’s Eric Bolling:
As Eric asks, “If they can’t get a basic website up and running in
three years… How on God’s green Earth are they going to administer
health care to 300 million Americans? So, with billions upon billions of
health related communications clearing through the government medicine
portal annually, our very health will be hanging in the
balance…Therefore, you must conclude: The Obama administration has our
lives in their hands…Ask yourself… Do you trust President Obama, Valerie
Jarrett, Kathleen Sebelius and Jay Carney with your life? I certainly
