Governor Palin slams Obamaís Obamacare lies
Conservatives 4 Palin ^ | October 31, 2013 | Doug Brady

Posted on 10/31/2013 9:11:09 AM PDT by Bratch

The Governor pulls no punches in her latest piece:

President Obama flew in to Boston today to deliver another “ShamWow”-style infomercial for Obamacare, and it went about as well as his entourage’s snarled traffic debacle in Beantown.

As millions of Americans are being kicked off their desired insurance plans and seeing their premiums skyrocket, the President had a lot of ‘splaining to do today. For starters we anticipated a Presidential apology for lying to Americans repeatedly when he promised things like, “If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.” Make no mistake, he knew he was lying when he said that. And make no further mistake, after five years of false Obama claims, no one should actually expect contrition on this administration’s part.

Bloomberg reports that in June of 2010, the administration knew millions would be kicked off existing healthcare plans due to Obamacare; but President Obama continued to knowingly deceive the American people with repeated claims that if we liked our current plan we could keep it.

So, finally busted, did the President apologize? Was remorse and sympathy shown for Americans who now can’t afford health insurance thanks to Obamacare? Nope. He instead informed us that Americans who receive cancellation notices have been on “substandard” plans supplied by “bad apple” insurers. That’s right. Obama didn’t lie to you when he said, “if you like your plan, you can keep it.” Why? Because, you sillies, you DIDN’T REALLY like the plan you chose for yourselves! No arguing. Barack Obama knows best and he’ll tell you whether you actually liked your insurance plan or not. If you’re an elderly bachelor, your old plan was clearly “substandard” because it didn’t offer maternity care. What’s that you say? You don’t need maternity care? Well, according to the President today, he says you do, and any insurance plan that doesn’t offer it is a “junk” plan provided by a “bad apple” insurer.

But don’t worry, the President also promised that only “rich” people making $250,000 or more will see their premium costs rise. This lie is so appalling and so easily debunked that the brazenness with which he made it is simply breathtaking. But who will hold him accountable for it? Media, you know I love you… so let me help you save your hide with the American public by suggesting you fact-check that.

Despite the Obamacare rollout disaster and the broken government website (which HHS Secretary Sebelius admitted is a “debacle” in her testimony before Congress today), the President gleefully highlighted the few people signing up for Obamacare as indicative of his socialized medicine’s “success.” He neglected to mention that the government is forcing Americans to sign up for his program or pay fines that will increase each year we fail to do so.

For sheer chutzpah, the President closed his speech by praising America’s “rugged individualism.” Because nothing says “rugged individualism” like heavy-handed big government forcing individuals to buy a product they don’t want and arrogantly telling them they didn’t really like the product they wisely chose for themselves and could afford.

Thanks for the infomercial, Mr. President. I don’t know anyone who wants your “ShamWow” product, but the IRS will make sure we call that toll free number or go online to order it right now…. well, just as soon as your impossibly broken $600 million website is fixed and your phones lines aren’t busy.

Happy with this, America? Make your voices heard. 2014 is just around the corner.

- Sarah Palin

P.S. Take a look at this article by Fox’s Eric Bolling:

http://nation.foxnews.com/2013/10/30/eric-bolling-why-healthcaregov-website-failure-mattersbig-time

As Eric asks, “If they can’t get a basic website up and running in three years… How on God’s green Earth are they going to administer health care to 300 million Americans? So, with billions upon billions of health related communications clearing through the government medicine portal annually, our very health will be hanging in the balance…Therefore, you must conclude: The Obama administration has our lives in their hands…Ask yourself… Do you trust President Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Kathleen Sebelius and Jay Carney with your life? I certainly do not!”

After days of listening to right of center pundits dancing around the elephant in the room, it's refreshing to finally hear someone call the President's words exactly what they were...LIES.

It's a shame most Republican officials are too timid to tell the truth.

I belive the GOP won’t say much of anything because the lame stream media will make that the center of the news and not obamacare.

It’s fustrating but they really can’t speak out too much because of the democrat controlled news outlets.

Amen, brother....and if ANYONE should be coming out with a strong statement that the Usurper LIED, it should be RNC national chairman, Reebus Preebus, the GOP's Invisible Man.

Where IS he, attending a gala in NY?

We have scandal after scandal, mass destruction of our country and the only people that are in power to counter it are the RNC/GOP.

With the exception of a handful of brave patriots THEY COWER LIKE MICE! They say nothing at all because the GOP has been taken over by liberals. Just like the democrat party has been completely taken over by communists and socialists.

My question is, how do we infiltrate the GOP with patriots? I’m not educated on how the top level organization of the RNC works. How can we get good people on the committee to allow us to elect new RNC leadership and take back ownership?

And then leave.

If everyone did this, the GOP would be brought to heel in one cycle.

There is more than one reason why Congress and the president made certain Obamcare does not apply to them and their benefactors and cronies.

Wait until the truth about the Death Squads can no longer be denied.

Obama and his minions are huge supporters of a single payer system..its what he wanted from the beginning..Canada didnt straight straight away with single payer, they started with a program just like this and worked their way into single payer..that is Obama’s plan, blame the insurance companies, then the sheep will say “By George he’s right, its those darn insurance companies, its their fault my premiums skyrocketed” and thus you have a single payer system..what Obama believes is what ALL Communists believe, their ideology tells them that people are too stupid to think for themselves, that only THEY can make the right decisions for us..today its our health care, tomorrow its what car we drive, what food we eat, and it will never end..that is the Communist manifesto

It’s fustrating but they really can’t speak out too much because of the democrat controlled news outlets.

All the more frustrating because judging by the reader/consumer comments at MSM news sites that allow comments, about two thirds hold the democrat controlled news outlets in contempt for being so blatantly biased.

If Republicans spoke out, they'd cheer -- although the news outlets would never acknowledge it.
