Top Three Obamacare lies told by Obama

Sunday, May 25th, 2014

“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period.”

“If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”

“We will lower your premiums by $2,500 per family, per year.”

All three of those statements have been proven to be lies.

All three of those statements, at the time they were made, were identified as not being what the actual Obamacare law would allow, by people who actually read the bill.

Those people were called “racists” by people who didn’t read the bill.

I’m not expecting any apologies to the people wrongly attacked for having actually read the so called “Affordable Care Act.”

I am expecting the people who attacked them with slanderous lies to apologize for the man who lied to them and to continue their baseless, partisan attacks on any one who dares to speak the truth.

ObamaSpeak vs Websters Dictionary

Monday, September 21st, 2009

Kudos for George Stephanopoulos for asking a question that our Dear Leader clearly hadn’t vetted.  The White House will try and punish him for it, but as a former White House communications director himself, Stephanopoulos figures it’s probably worth the hit.

Let’s go to the video.

Stephanopoulos challenges our Dear Leader on his proposed tax on those who won’t sign up for government mandated health care, and our Harvard Law School educated President replies with ‘who are you going to believe? Me or that lying Webster’s Dictionary?’

Here is the money quote:

Stephanopoulos: “Under this mandate, the government is forcing people to spend money, fining you if you don’t. How is that not a tax?”

Obama: ” No, but — but, George, you — you can’t just make up that language and decide that that’s called a tax increase.”

Stephanopoulos: “I don’t think I’m making it up. Merriam-Webster’s dictionary: ‘Tax, a charge, usually of money, imposed by authority on persons or property for public purposes.'”

BHO can parse words in a manner that would embarrass Billy Jeff ‘It depends on what the meaning of is is” Clinton, but it won’t change the fact that his argument that the fine isn’t a tax is still fundamentally a lie.

The model for ObamaCare is the Massachusetts system, in which the state Internal Revenue Service determines if you have health care or not and adds any ‘fines’ to your state tax bill.

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

The second installment in Translating Obamaspeak.

“Cap and Trade” means “Cap and Tax” in English.

“Hope and Change” means “Dope and Fail” in English.

And remember kids, “We have always been at war with Eastasia.”

Translating Obamaspeak

Friday, April 17th, 2009

As a public service, I’m providing translations for some of our Dear Leader‘s “code words” into English.

“Overseas Contingency Operations” is Obamaspeak for the Global War on Islamofascism.

“Man-caused disasters” is Obamaspeak for Islamic Terrorism.

“Secretary of the Treasury” is Obamaspeak for Tax Cheat.

“Rightwing Extremist” is Obamaspeak for Veterans of the United States Military
