"The fact of the matter is, the president went out and said, I think he said what he believed to be the fact and what was substantially was the fact, because 90, whatever, 95, 96, 97 percent of Americans are in the position where they can keep the insurance they have and they're going to see no changes," Axelrod explained to MSNBC's Chris Hayes on Monday night.
Axelrod dismissed people currently losing their health plans as a "small group" of people who bought "substandard policies" in the individual market.

“Fake but accurate.”
"small group" of people = mostly self-employed and small business owners who didn't vote for ObaMao anyway. IOW, the enemy.
"substandard policies" = policies which don't offer unlimited coverage for substance abuse, mental health, abortions and all the stuff our people are likely to use.
As laughable as this is... why does anyone now believe them when they say it’s only the individual market with this problem?
What about losing doctors?
What about losing employer coverage [half will.]
And NOBODY will believe them when they answer these questions... if anyone will ask.
we need to ask for a revote
They are sliding downhill fast right past desperate on their way to insane. Funny, but also dangerous.
Still lying about the lying. He and the Obamanation might as well say : “Catch me before I lie again. I can’t help myself.”
He should be given the opportunity to use that line on a judge and jury.
“Axelrod dismissed people currently losing their health plans as a “small group” of people who bought “substandard policies” in the individual market.”
A small group of several million people, at least.
The ARROGANCE of these bast- er, jerks! I’ve never seen such a high-handed, condescending administration in my life. Clinton’s flunkies wallowed in gutter politics, but this...this is a first in American politics for me. Wow.
he said it is substantially true because “90, whatever, 95, 96, 97 percent of Americans are in the position where they can keep the insurance they have and they’re going to see no changes,”
HA! That is a big lie too. Is it subtantially true if the number proves to be 75%? or?
and what constitutes NO CHANGES? HA! An increase in premium of 50-100% is NO CHANGE? a doubled deductible is NO CHANGE? etc.
That’s what I’ve been gathering -
the ones losing their insurance are, for the most part, people that Obama wants to punish anyway.
Reminds me of Clappers (NSA)statement :
"Thats the least untruthful answer I can give you "
Judd Hirsch’s twin is just as stupid as his brother.
Can’t we just “deem it to be true”, and “move on”?
.... are telling you it's raining ....... Do you still believe them?
“Substantially True” is a political term defined as “Actually False.
David Axelrod claims Obama line on keeping your coverage was ‘substantially’ true.
open mic on David: “And by ‘substantially’ true I mean, of course, that it was a cynical, calculated baldfaced lie designed to manipulate public opinion until we (the revolutionaries) gain complete totalitarian control. Then you who opposed us will PAY for your lack of vision.”
My last tax return was “substantially true”. Think the IRS will mind?
Axelrod is embarrassing himself.
That’s all they got now...well Obama only lied to about 129 million Americans who within the year will have their plans canceled, incur higher premiums and deductibles, and potentially lose access to their current providers.
Desperately in search of a narrative for their crap sandwich.
ONLY 10 million or so will lose their coverage (so far)
Hey, you gotta break some eggs...
Axelrod dismissed people UPSET OVER OBAMACARE as a “small group” of people who BELIEVED “substandard POLITICIANS”.
Well, it might be “true” in a double-plus ungood kind of way.
It all depends on how they describe “substantially” I suppose.........
Hey, Axleshaft, the plan I am in has tripled in cost since Fubocare was passed.
FUDA, you are a liar, just like your boss.
Well, it was about as “true” as any other Democrat promise. “Truth” to a Democrat is whatever they can make the public believe and what they can get their partners in the media say.
Duh, it looks like we now know who came up with the money quote: “If you like your doctor, you can keep him.”
Maybe Axelrod also came up with the other money quote: “If you have a business, you didn’t build it.”
Obama’s arrogant LBR, (Lie-Blame-Ridicule), management style is finally obvious for all but the Leftstream Media to see.
Exactly who does he mean will get to keep their insurance?
Not that he shaved his hitleresque moustache. It makes him even more smarmy.
Reporter: David, you stated that what Obama said was substantially true. I don’t get it.
David: That’s because you don’t understand the term “substantially true”.
Reporter: I thought I did. It means that Obama’s statements were mostly true or at least weren’t outright lies. Where did I go wrong?
David: Like I said, you don’t understand what “substantially true” actually means. It certainly does not mean that the statement is true. I mean this is politics 101. Substantially True means that it serves our purpose at the time it is stated. It could be a complete lie. Truth is really not the key criteria. How much help the statement contributes to getting Obama elected was and is the only measure of what we choose to call The Truth. Third Term anyone?
If someone could just come up with an electricity-generating turbine that ran on bullshit the Obama administration could instantly solve the world’s energy problems.
The A-hole speaks!
Well no. But what difference does it make for the O-boys to lie yet again.
Bet Axelrod doesn’t have the balls to go on the Kelly File. There’s no way she’d let him get away with that crap.
If I have 5 numbers right for the lotto but not the 6th number it is a “substantially the grand prize winning ticket.” Good luck trying to cash that ticket for the grand prize.
Freedom is slavery
We have always been at war with Eurasia
You can keep your insurance plan and doctor
Axelrod forgets that unlike Big Brother, Obama does not have a Ministry of Truth to erase any memory of past events.
Adolf Axelrod is a lying scumbag. The truth, like honor, is unknown in him. He is an ass kissing sychophant of Obama.
Other than that, I hear he’s a great guy.
But the EPA would deem it illegal (polluting runoff, or just plain icky.)in some way and you would be back to square one.
Is the small group of people, 5% or 15 million folks, going to come and bite them in the butt?
After all, if 15 million people are inconsequential, then 11 million illegal aliens are even less consequential.
I laughed so hard I crapped my pants. Well, that's 'substantially' true.
“Substantially” true? Is that like a “little bit” pregnant, or a “touch” of heart surgery?
All that remains, Comrades, is to build a cinder block wall to prevent unpatriotic Americans from escaping our workers paradise.
