Charlie Rangel denies healthcare lies, says criticism ‘all about Obama’ [VIDEO]
The Daily Caller ^ | December 1, 2013 | Brendan Bordelon

Posted on 12/01/2013 11:14:33 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

New York Democrat Rep. Charlie Rangel denied that President Barack Obama lied when he repeatedly claimed those who liked their healthcare plans could keep them under Obamacare, claiming that the ensuing criticism is instead “all about Obama.”

Rangel appeared alongside North Carolina Republican Rep. Renee Ellmers to discuss Obamacare’s political future with Fox News’ Shannon Bream on Sunday. After checking in on a fatal subway derailment in Rangel’s New York district, Bream asked the congressman if he would be open to modifying parts of the healthcare law that need work.

“I don’t know what you mean by modification,” Rangel protested. “This should not be a Republican and Democratic issue. Everyone knew that 40 percent of the American people had no access to healthcare.”

“Instead of talking about what happened with the rollout, we should be so happy that we do have a plan that Republicans and Democrats can perfect,” he continued. “And if you have to talk politics, let the facts speak for themselves. They ran an election — it’s all about Obama. If he walked on water, they would say the president can’t swim.”(continued)

“Everyone knew that 40 percent of the American people had no access to healthcare.” —— and Rangel lies again. No one knows that. No one goes without “healthcare,” in this country. 40% of people did not lack health insurance, either. Can any Democrat tell the truth?

It takes a pathological delusional liar to cover for a pathological delusional liar.

You're obviously joking, right?

We are holding Charlie Rangel to a standard which has no relationship to his personal situation. He appears on national television but he is held to account in Harlem. It matters not a bit of what he says, whether what he says relates to the truth or has any attachment to logic, it only matters whether he appears to be setting The Man straight.

You beat me to it. Even if we throw in the illegal aliens 40% is a ridiculous claim.

I find this to be a good thing. The more Rangel speaks his Wonderlandian nonsense, the more liberals and moderates get deprogrammed.

Thanks for your insightful take. Deserves a repeat.

===================================================

HUH? COME AGAIN, CHARLIE? Rangel says “Everyone knows that 40 percent of Americans had no access to healthcare.”

No one goes without “healthcare,” in our entitlement-driven country. The 40% of the people Obama "says" he's helping, did not lack health insurance.

Can any Democrat tell the truth?

==================================================

We have proof-positive AGAIN that Dims must never, ever be let anywhere near government power---they become obsessed with power. They will say or do anything to hold onto it.

And another red flag to voters----George Will on Fox put it well: " Its OK for politicians to be clever, but they must not appear to be clever. B/c voters equate cleverness with deviousness.

COMMANDANT DNC DEBBIE GAVE THE MARCHING ORDERS: Dims are colluding and conspiring to set the stage for massive voter fraud. The name of the game is protection from (gag) media scrutiny.

2014 Dim wins (if any) will be attributed to the wonders of Obamacare.

Menendez was also tapped as Obama’s message boy. Illegal votes under multiple identities will play a big role. Menendez marched out to provide the cover story.

Remains to be seen if the electorate gets duped by the scheme. They got taken before-—remains to be seen if they get taken again.

The idiot: Everyone knew that 40 percent of the American people had no access to healthcare.”

So, you absolutely MUST destroy what the other 60% do have!

p.s. Except Congress and unions of course! They'll be the only ones with anything resembling what Americans used to regard as regular health insurance coverage. (Even that isn't quite right! Congress and unions enjoy extremely generous plans that average Americans could only dream of!)

Must be nice to have constituents so racist and so stupid that they will vote you in over and over regardless of how badly you screw them over.

If he walked on water, they would say the president can’t swim.

The only way any Democrat can walk on water is on top of the bodies of people they drown first.

In vaguely related news, racist film director Spike Lee’s new movie, a remake of the brilliant, but ultra-violent Japanese movie Oldboy, has gone stinker. Box office poison.

Apparently, Americans don’t like racists, no matter their skin color.
