Obama Lies Catalogued by www.HumanEvents.com
Congressman shouts "you lie" during Obama's speech. Was he right?
Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) issued an apology after his outburst, "you lie," toward President Obama during his health care speech to Congress on Wednesday. "I let my emotions get the best of me," Wilson said in a statement. "I extend sincere apologies to the president." We commend Wilson for his quick humility. But questions remain:
Did Obama tell lies during the speech? Was Wilson right after all? And why doesn't Obama apologize just as quickly for calling conservatives liars? In their fact-checking, the press confirmed FIVE WHOPPERS told by the President himself:
OBAMA LIE #1: "No federal dollars will be used to fund abortions."
THE TRUTH: The Capps Amendment to HR 3200 has a Section 4B that reads: "Abortions for Which Public Funding Is Allowed. -- The services described in this subparagraph are abortions for which the expenditure of Federal funds appropriated for the Department of Health and Human Services is permitted." The Washington Times reported: "You can't get more explicit than that." And FactCheck.org exposed Obama's lie too: "Despite what Obama said, the House bill would allow abortions to be covered by a federal plan and by federally subsidized private plans." So President Obama lied, plain and simple.
OBAMA LIE #2: "I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits either now or in the future. Period."
THE TRUTH: The Democrat controlled Congressional Budget Office said Obamacare would add $220 billion to the deficit over 10 years, but will not succeed at shrinking the overall costs of our nation's health care. Republicans claim it's more like $600 billion increased deficit spending. (Confirmed by Associated Press, 9 Sep 09.) Either way, Obama lied.
OBAMA LIE #3:
Link to original article?
I tried to do that a month or so ago but I ran out of hard-drive space.
To Congressman Wilson...
“THE TRUTH: The Democrat controlled Congressional Budget Office said Obamacare would add $220 billion to the deficit over 10 years, but will not succeed at shrinking the overall costs of our nation’s health care. Republicans claim it’s more like $600 billion increased deficit spending. (Confirmed by Associated Press, 9 Sep 09.) Either way, Obama lied.”
Even THAT is a lie...the taxes are written to start immediately, while the program phases in after two years...the tab is much higher and as we know, the rule of thumb in DC is take the projection, multiply by ten and then try to track all of the other programs it spawns...
Where’s the link? I don’t see the article listed on humanevent’s site.
It was a blast e-mail that Human Events sent to its registered viewers requesting we fax the Blue-Dog Democrats about this.
“...I tried to do that a month or so ago but I ran out of hard-drive space....”
May I suggest purchasing several terrabyte hard drives. With three and a half years left, you’re gonna need them.
