Obama Didn’t Lie About ObamaCare, If You Exclude All His Lies

"I did not have sex with that health plan."

“I did not have sex with that health plan.”

The hot new liberal talking point about Obama’s “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan” lie is that it’s actually true of the plans you can keep, but not of the plans you can’t keep.

When Obama repeatedly said that, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan”… he apparently meant only the “good” health care plans that he approves of, but not the bad ones.

Somehow this is interpreted to mean that Obama didn’t lie about ObamaCare, because he really told the truth about the plans you can keep and you wouldn’t want to keep the other plans anyway.

We’re getting into True Scotsman territory here where each new exception is grandfathered in while somehow pretending that the original statement is true. Obama didn’t lie about health care, because no True Scotsman counts the majority of health care plans as health care plans.

When Obama claimed that you can keep your health care plan, he only meant the health care plans that wouldn’t be affected by ObamaCare.

Bill Clinton at least only had the indecency to reinterpret the definition of sex. Barack Obama has reinterpreted the definition of healthcare  plan. What is the meaning of sex? What is the meaning of health care plan?

Obama’s sex is a health care plan that he likes, but not one that he doesn’t like, and if you accuse him of lying, he’ll shake his finger at you and swear that he did not have sex with that health care plan.

    Obamacare is a massive fraud. Obama sold America one thing and then delivered another thing not remotely anywhere near what he was promising. In other words, Obama deliberately deceived the American people about Obamacare. As a matter of fact, he wouldn’t have won a second term in office had he told the America people the truth about Obamacare, which he and the Dhimmicrats new as long as 3 years before. Thus, Obama’s second-term election victory is an out and out fraud. Therefore, Obama must be impeached for defrauding the American people or otherwise his election must be declared null and void. If America doesn’t hold Obama and the Dhimmicrats to account for their deception, it will set a very bad precedent, as politicians of all stripes will now be able to lie to us with impunity. Obama must be removed from office, as his deliberate deception must not go unpunished.

      But it’s a compromise and the Republican’s fault because it’s not single payer.

      So how is that(impeachment and removal) accomplished?

    • Gee

      Since the Senate and the House did not pass the same law and the two were never reconciled is there an actual law?

    Obama himself is a massive fraud

    Mark Hannah told Fox News that the plans you couldn’t keep or wouldn’t be allowed to keep, whether or not you liked or wanted them, were “illegal.”

    • objectivefactsmatter

      Well they are now. They weren’t when he made the promise.

        Words have no meaning to Obama or any on his staff. They’re just sounds to fill space and serve as a buffer against the reality he doesn’t like or against the truth.There’s no reason to believe anything he says or take it at face value. He talks in “code,” especially when he says he wants to “spread the wealth around a little.” By that, he meant “a lot.” It’s the English form of Islamic taqiyya, or double-speak.

  • objectivefactsmatter

    Some of you in theory can keep your health plan and your own doctors. Don’t count on it, because we’ll just have to see.

    I think that’s closer to what he said, isn’t it?

  • TheOrdinaryMan

    There’s also a “medical device” excise tax in Obamacare. I put the medical device in quotes because in IRS publication 510, this phrase is defined to include fishing tackle, bait, and tires. Yes, you read that right–tires! This excise tax is 2.3% on the value of the above. Obamacare is NOT about health care!

    Looking at the sheen of sweat on Bill Clinton’s forehead in the photo, it suggests volumes about Bill Clinton as Chief Propagandist for the Obama Administration.
