The Obama Administration's Disingenous Deceptions Shred Whatever Credibility They Had Left

Con artists are using confusion over Obamacare to sign people up for what they call "fake" health insurance.  The scammers lure victims with false promises and say stuff like, "If you want your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan...Leno

Leno actually made a good point with his joke. Obamacare is increasingly looking like a scam (I've referred to it as a "hoax" myself). As one starts to list all of the scandals and lies of this administration, it's become increasingly clear to more Americans that whatever credibility this administration had (some would argue, they had none), it's now in shreds.

As most American know by now, we've been subject to lies, falsehoods, cover ups and stonewalling with regard to the Fast and Furious, Benghazi, GSA, IRS, NSA and countless other scandals for several years now. All of these and more are now being better defined and revealed by the most recent revelations regarding Obamacare. But who would have thought that President Obama would actually double-down on his Obamacare lies. Well, he did.

Yesterday, Pres. Obama actually said the following: "If you have or had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law and you really liked that plan, what we said was you can keep it if it hasn't changed since the law passed."

So what did Pres. Obama actually say on multiple occasions prior to yesterday? He said, "If you like your insurance plan, you can keep it. No one will be able to take it away, no matter what. He also said, "If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan, period." He didn't put an asterisk at the end of that statement, a statement he made on at least two dozen occasions in the past three years. Those two statements were clearly explicit, unambiguous and undeniable.

But, again, Pres. Obama didn't end there as he wanted us to believe yesterday. In the past, he's also made the following statements:
  • "Nobody is changing what you got if you're happy with it."
  • "I will not impose a single burden on small business."
  • "Guarantees coverage of every American." Even the Congressional Budget Office predicted at least 30 million Americans will not be covered in the next 10 years.
If Nixon were still alive today, he would say with confidence: "I am not a crook---by today's standards." Or perhaps, the Obama administration can be summed up best by a recent political cartoonist (Ramirez): "America, be confident in the knowledge that your president knows nothing about anything his administration his doing."
