Two Years Later—The ObamaCare Lies Continue
IBD Editorials ^ | April 5, 2012

The Obama Record: Little noticed in the president's remarks attacking the Supreme Court last week were two whoppers he told about ObamaCare. Then again, since that reform was built on untruths, why should he stop now?

At that press event, Obama told any justice thinking of overturning ObamaCare's central tenet that "in the absence of an individual mandate, you cannot have a mechanism to ensure that people with pre-existing conditions can actually get health care."

But this is false.

In fact, Obama himself argued precisely the opposite during the 2008 campaign, saying a mandate wasn't needed to achieve universal coverage. "The reason people don't have health insurance isn't because they don't want it," he said then. "It's because they can't afford it."

Plus, ObamaCare itself proves a mandate isn't needed to cover those with pre-existing conditions. The law set up federal "high risk" pools that offer insurance to those denied it by private companies. Yet instead of making this a permanent solution, Obama kills these pools off in 2014 in favor of the mandate.

Obama also claimed at that press conference that the law "was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress."

Also false.

“...health insurance isn't because they don't want it,” he said then. “It's because they can't afford it.”

For what that SOB has added to the debt, he could have funded Ins. for all of the uninsured. But he isn't interested in the po’ fo’k w/o insurance. His only goal is the socialization of the US.

He has misunderstood the people of the US and the world in general. Now, he is slowly going insane with the truth gnawing at his innards like a vulture on road kill.

That is/will be his legacy.- “The president that died from vulture bites.”

No one could deserve it more.
