A Lie is a Lie


 Drudge linked story. A Colorado woman was a big Obamacare supporter, when it was first proposed:

She was shocked further to learn that for the same coverage she would pay 35 percent more and have a higher deductible.

“Our premium for next year is going up to over $1,000 a month for two of us and we’re two fairly healthy individuals,” Wagner said.

“This is yet the most recent issue,” said U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colorado.

DeGette sits on the committee that oversees Obamacare. She insists the Wagners are the exception, not the rule. [a lie]

“As we work through all of this I think that a year from now people overall are going to be very, very happy with the way the Affordable Care Act is working,” DeGette said...

...Nationwide at least 3.5 million people have received the cancellation notices.
It will be more like tens of millions. The law says that if copay or deductible change, or coverage changes from what it was in 2010, the policy is null and void and must be replaced with one that meets the Obama mandates.

They always knew the system couldn't handle this. Costs can't go down by adding people (who presumably can't pay, or can't pay much) and mandating more coverage for everybody.

Of course costs have to go up.

Now U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette advances the Lie 1.1 : “As we work through all of this I think that a year from now people overall are going to be very, very happy with the way the Affordable Care Act is working,”

DeGette probably knows that's a lie. The idea now is to break the system so badly that we must go to single payer. The Obamacare supporters  who are left at this point are: 1.) Cynical manipulators who are spinning whatever lies they can in order to keep this farce moving forward, towards collapse. 2.) Gullible and well meaning people, who can't believe their Obama would lie; and certainly can't believe he would continue to lie at this point.


The excuses they're pushing today aren't working. They claim that all those cancelled plans were substandard, and the replacement plans are real insurance plans. This isn't working because we knew what our old insurance was and we were happy with it. The government didn't improve anything by mandating that breast pumps be free.

Don't buy tomorrow's excuse. Whether they blame contractors, or insurance companies, or free-loading citizens, the real message is, "Please continue buying this until it's too late to turn back."
