Obamacare Victims Are “Liars,” Says Top Democrat (anything to distract from Benghazi)
Yahoo! News ^ | 2/27/14 | Ed Morrissey -The Fiscal Times

Posted on 02/27/2014 9:20:49 AM PST by NormsRevenge

Remember “I feel your pain” - Bill Clinton’s plaintive response to the woes of Middle America turned into a signature line for his administration, which became a cliché in American politics?

Every politician wanted to connect to the pain of Americans, even in good economic times, and especially during and after the Great Recession. The biggest political attack against Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election related to the exposure of his remarks about the “47 percent” and how out of touch it made the wealthy Republican nominee to the plight of the struggling working classes.

That was then … this is now. Instead of feeling your pain, Harry Reid stood on the Senate floor to tell millions of Americans impacted by skyrocketing premiums, incompetent administration, and policy cancellations from the implementation of the Affordable Care Act that they don’t really feel pain at all.

Democrats find themselves hammered by an avalanche of data and personal anecdotes that demonstrate the damage done by Obamacare. Instead of addressing those – which granted, would take most of the time between now and the midterm elections – the Senate Majority Leader angrily dismissed all such information as “untrue.”

When the leader of the Senate calls his own American people liars

It is past time for a new leader of the Senate.

He should have been pilloried on the floor of the Senate by his own party members.. on C-SPIN. LIVE!

When will America wake the heck up?

Keep going, Harry!

The lapdog media might actually cover some of the crap that passes for ‘partisan’ politics these days.

If Reid was in my political party I would be too embarrassed to admit it. Without the protection of his senate seat, he might be in prison instead.

I saw a democrat pundit saying that Harry Reid was wrong to attack those people because she knows that many of the stories are true.

Then she turned around and excused the attack because the democrats are under a lot of pressure over Obamacare.

Got that? Its OK to attack innocent people if you’re under pressure for your own failures.

I remember Reid calling the TEA party terrorists. Demonizing the innocent was a prime tactic of Nazis. Fascist is as fascist does. Too bad there is no rule of law anymore.

After Clinton basically got away with perjury, why should any politician care about telling absurd, easily debunkable lies?

Lets hope that people remember this.

There should be t-shirts and posters — Caption: “You are a liar according to Harry Reid (Democrat).” With his picture below.

And isn’t Reid the former head of the Gaming Commission? I suspect he has enough skeletons in his closet to put Halloween to shame.

They just keep repeating that obamacare was supposed to lower healthcare COSTS. That was not the purpose. It was supposed to get everyone health INSURANCE. I don’t know why the republicans and talking show hosts won’t keep repeating this.

Second, the republicans need to have these REAL people come to the capitol for a press conference. Let the reporters call them liars.

Wait. I forgot. We’re talking about republicans. Never mind.

Their cover is blown.

Remember the FIRST thing ‘Obama’ did after becoming ‘president?’ He sent Pelosi to THREATEN CIA with prosecution for ‘Torturing captured islamic terrorists.’

Pelosi very publicly announced ‘CIA LIED TO ME ABOUT TORTURE; NEVER BRIEFED ME’ until various officials declared, ‘Actually, Pelosi was indeed briefed, so we don’t know why she’s accusing CIA of lying/deception.’

Then suddenly, Pelosi dropped the issue like a hot potato and wouldn’t mention it anymore.

In other words, the FIRST thing ‘Obama’ did was send a public declaration to CIA:

“Blow my cover (as illegal alien; DNA doesn’t match grandparents) and CIA might get rid of me, but PELOSI and the Demonrats will still be here to ruin your CIA career and persecute you for trumped up lying/torture until some of you CIA guys land in prison. Go ahead, I’m the historic first black president, so let’s see who wins this public fight. ME, or some CIA guy whom I demonize across major media. Make my day.”

Remember, who SIGNED OFF on the (edited) ‘Candidate certification’ to make Obama the Democrat candidate? It was PELOSI. Obama couldn’t produce ANY valid ID, so the Demonrats just said ‘No problem, we’ll edit the Democrat Party certification document so instead of saying you meet ALL REQUIREMENTS to become president, the document will read that you meet all requirements OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY (not the Constitution) to be president.’

Conclusion: Pelosi (and Boehner; McCain; Reid; plus half of Congress; plus the Hawaii officials and WH cronies who covered up this fraud for 6 years) should be prosecuted for treason, then convicted, then shot by firing squad.

(VIDEO) MI5 has documented evidence that OBAMA BORN IN MOMBASA IN 1960. CIA tested Obama DNA but couldn’t match him to claimed ‘grandparents.’

Giuliani + Clinton + McCain + CIA knew:

The democrat voters aren’t ashamed to be in the same party as Sheila Jackson-Lee. They’re proud of Reid!

And most of the democrat voters who are getting screwed for obamacare apparently like it.

Like who CARES what it was intended for; now it’s a cornucopia of such wonder that only the uncouth would dare to complain about it.

And the body politic will get away with such baloney until someone cares deeply and stubbornly about truth enough to call out these lies.

Our system is so corrupt they can all get away with anything if they don’t cause too much of a stir. And the longer it goes on, the more they can get away with.

I was watching a documentary on the Hell’s Angels last night. Even THEY have politicians in their pockets.

You said...
“Ya. A sign of desperation — lie and make false accusations. Should be interesting to see out the MSM will spin it.”

It's a huge sign of desperation. Not just from Reid but the Democratic party and the left and the media(all one in the same).

The truth is too much for them to face so their claim that what's really going on with ObamaCare isn't true is not only a sign of panic but also a psychological protection mechanism. Their minds, in order to protect themselves from the painful truth, are creating an alternative reality for them

My Medicare heart medicine went up from $50.00
to $77.00 a month, January 1st because of obamacare.

I believe that is a 50% increase.

That is $25.00 less spent in the economy.

That is a new tax of $440,162,975.00 on the middle class.

Pelosi’s DNA will match a few Mafia thugs back on the East Coast.

She and her husband have a lot of shady business deals and land deals in California.

I had/have the feeling that she backed off the waterboarding after seeing the file on she and her husband.

No one really wants to address the negative impact on our economy re what happened to you and millions of us.

Throw in higher premiums, higher deductibles and other out of pocket medical expenses. You end up with a lot of money not going into the overall economy.

A suggestion re your rx. Check with Costco and Walmart to see what their prices are. Often they are considerably cheaper.

Also do a Google check on your drug and your zip code for the prices of your drug. Often those Google searches will
include a free RX card and a special deal for your rx.

Our RX plan dropped coverage for Voltarin Gel, which I use on my post surgery foot. Instead of $50+ for this drug, I used one of the discount coupons from RX plans tha Google provided. I printed out several offers. The Walmart Pharmacist picked the best, and I only pay $15 per tube.

Take some time and find out which Pharmacy or RX plan gives you the best price for each drug. Our RX plan for my wife is the best for 3 name brand drugs, and she gets a better price for 2 drugs at Walmart. I now get two drugs at a better price at Walmart than with our plan, and as noted a good price on the Voltaren Gel with that card.

Thanks for the thoughts.

I live a very small town; I use both Wally world
and Smiths( King Soopers) both have the lowest prices.
I have had 2 discount cards ,
The $50 one has been canceled by Dear Leader.

What I have left is a discount card for $77.

Thanks again
