the mishandling of the new health care law.
The rollout was so bad, and I was appalledI dont understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis, the former Democratic congressman told the website.
But frankly, he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasnt true. And you shouldnt lie to people. And they just lied to people, he added.
Mr. Frank told The Huffington Post that Mr. Obama should have better explained the situation to the American people, and laid out the possibilities of losing their existing plans.
He should have said, Look, in some cases the health care plans that youve got are really inadequate, and in your own interests, were going to change them. But thats not what he said, Mr. Frank said.

A liar can spot another one easily. As can gays.
How does this guy keep from getting hit by lightning?
Oh, gee Bawney! You mean your party isn’t a bunch of liars? Who’d a thunk?
That would have gone over like gang-busters.
All the dems (and pubs) knew exactly what the deal was. Now the dems are trying to distance themselves from it, and the pubs are too spineless to forcefully make it stick to them.
LOL. on both points.
It's not "how" it was rolled out, but that it was rolled out at all that is the real crime here.
To coin a phrase, it takes one to know one.
Barney Frank on the real estate crisis,”We just lied to people.”
Barney,you and your cabal of leftists lie about every issue.
I have to wonder what’s going on in the background that would cause Barney to make such a statement.
“He should have said, Look, in some cases the health care plans that youve got are really inadequate, and in your own interests, were going to change them.”
Scratch a liberal, uncover a fascist.
The boy's concern has nothing to do with lying ... it's the result of his political calculation about what incompetence is doing to his beloved Democrat-Socialist Party.
I was just thinking the same thing...
government ...telling what is still basically a freedom loving people...”in your own interests?”
Wow...boom would go that balloon...LOL
His colon cleaner was scrapped from his health coverage? He sounds like just another bitter pillow biter.
Are pigs flying out of old Barney’s ass, I know there’s probably alot of stuff in there.
He should have said, Look, in some cases the health care plans that youve got are really inadequate, and in your own interests, were going to change them. But thats not what he said, Mr. Frank said.”
Spoken like a true Marxist.
“They” and not “we”? Right.
Barney was in the House.
He could have read the bill.
So, why is he surprised?
And that would have been a Democrat/Commie lie as well.
Explain how forcing a single man to pay for maternity coverage is in his own interest, Barney...
The old knob polisher was too busy doing”other things.”
