Skip to comments.Obama Administration just got caught in a massive lie

The LA Times has been as friendly as possible to the Obama administration, but they can't ignore this. Today they broke the story that another massive lie around Obamacare has been told to the Congress and the American people. As you know "If you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan" was ranked as the biggest lie of the year by the Washington Post. Well here comes an early contender for this year's award.
The Republicans have been accusing the Obama administration of building into Obamacare an insurance plan for the insurance companies. A bailout if the insurance companies lost money under Obamacare. Their claim was that in the law was something called the temporary risk corridor program. Under that Republicans said the administration had allowed themselves a way to take tax dollars and bailout an insurance company that lost money. But the administration and the Democrats have denied that. Apparently the administration and the Democrats had been telling the truth...and didn't like it.

Perhaps an event of a more amazing nature would be if members of this administration were caught telling the truth!
Which massive lie was that?
“We gotta pass the bill before we know what’s in it”...... bit#h.
Liars lie. There should be no shock there.
Comments at the site being added multiple times a minute! Fun to watch.
Democrats Lying??? Liars?
Democrats are SCOUNDRELS. They make pirates look honest.
Democrats are shameless liars and at some point in their scoundrel existence it will come back to bite them.
The story here is that the executive branch is writing law and spending money under the guise of regulation.
The executive branch has no authority to do this, and Congress MUST stop them.
Insurance companies wouldn’t have signed onto the Obamacare scam had they not believed bailouts were coming. Democrats now own the insurance companies, bought and paid for by millions of people who can’t afford it.
What, another one?
Too many to keep track of.
The lie is to be expected. I think the bigger scandal here is the Admin is telling insurance companies not to raise rates until the mid-terms are over and that the “risk corridor” program will cover them.
In short, spending our money on keeping Democrats in office.
I think the headline should be.....obama admin just got caught NOT telling a lie!
Wrong. They can ignore anything they want. They're the MSM.
The Republicans are expected to go nuts over this, and the Democrats will point at the scene they are making and say 'look how fanatical those people are'. I would warn Republicans against making a big deal out of this.
Who is the "I" here? Was it written by a concern troll?
