This is beginning to sound like a broken record, I know, but, “We told you so.”
For nearly five years we conservatives and libertarians have told you that Barack Obama was lying when he said that “if you like your current healthcare insurance plan, you can keep it.”
He also said, “If you like your doctor, you can keep him/her.”
How many times has he said this over the past five years? Too many to count. And each time he said it, we countered with the cold, hard facts. It is impossible to do what Obamacare is intended to do without throwing millions of citizens off of their current health insurance plans, no matter how much they like them and wish to keep them.
It is also impossible to do what Obamacare is intended to do without forcing many to give up their current doctors.
We told this to the nation each and every time Obama lied about Obamacare. But he said we were the ones who were lying. Democrats in Congress tarred and feathered us with all sorts of vile epithets, claiming we were so mean we would push granny down the stairs in her wheelchair and physically reach our hands into little children’s mouths to prevent them from swallowing a single morsel of food.
But today, the White House was forced to admit what everybody now knows. The president lied persistently about Obamacare. Congressional Democrats from Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer, to Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer lied incessantly about Obamacare.
In short, many if not most Americans will lose their current healthcare plans and their doctors. In the two weeks since the rollout of the fiasco “Affordable Care Act” fully 1.5 million Americans have already lost their insurance plans as companies inform them that they are no longer covered and will be dropped from insurance rolls. And a top health insurance analyst believes that upwards of 16 million Americans will eventually be dropped from healthcare insurance rolls.
This is according to the official blog of the National Center for Public Policy Research.
Quickly the White House and top Democrats on the Hill went into damage control mode. David Axelrod stated that “most” Americans will be able to keep their current plans and doctors.
How many are “most?” 51 percent?
