Obama Still Lying About Motherís Health Insurance Problem
Commentary ^ | March 19, 2012 | Jonathan S. Tobin

But as Scott discovered during the course of writing her biography of Anne Dunham, A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother, it turned out that her correspondence showed that “the 1995 dispute concerned a Cigna disability insurance policy and that her actual health insurer had apparently reimbursed most of her medical expenses without argument.”

0bama’s mother did not have a problem with her insurance paying for her medical treatment.

Her dispute was over disability insurance.

Does 0bamacare cover disability insurance? No.

Conclusion: 0bama is a liar. I’m surprised he doesn’t claim that his mother would probably be alive today if it wasn’t for those evil Republicans.
