Obama's Health Care Bill Lies


The list of promises President Obama made about health care reform, but left out of the final bill is extensive. At least, President Obama is an equal opportunity liar. He lied to Republicans and Democrats.

(03-19) 19:51 PDT WASHINGTON (AP) --

It was a bold response to skyrocketing health insurance premiums. President Barack Obama would give federal authorities the power to block unreasonable rate hikes.

Here are the two great lies these charlatans employ:

Lie #1: "This plan is deficit neutral" intones the Professor in Chief. Yeah, because it collects 10 years of taxes to pay for only 6-8 year of coverage.

Lie #2: Put a huge reduction in medicare reimbursements in the bill and get the CBO to score it. Then, pass a separate bill to cancel the cuts in the first bill.  From CNN:

Ryan correctly stated that the bill projects that Medicare will lower reimbursements to doctors by $371 billion over the next 10 years, yet Congress would cancel those cuts in a separate bill, all part of an attempt to mask the true size of future deficits through "gimmicks and smoke and mirrors."

Obama steered the discussion away from Ryan's numbers, and the White House hasn't challenged his analysis. (CNN-Money)

Bernie Madoff went to jail for less than this. His only crime was that he was unelected...
