Senior Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett Tweeted: “FACT: nothing in #Obamacare forces people out of their health plans. No change is required unless insurance companies change existing plans.”
For years, ever since the idea of Obamacare was widely announced, Obama has said that “if you like your insurance, you can keep it.” That little statement was a staple of his propaganda program to put people at ease. Many fewer people would have supported Obamacare if they knew that they would be kicked off their own insurance plans, and be forced to pay drastically higher prices for new plans.
Obama needed something to placate the masses. Unfortunately, all it took was a simple verbal promise. Despite all of our knowledge that politicians—especially Democrats—lie, many Americans still bought into Obama’s solemn promise. I suppose it helped that the media drooled over Obama’s promise like he was God promising the Israelites the land of Milk and Honey. Oh, how compassionate and amazing he is. How intelligent and thoughtful.
Now that it has been revealed that Obama knew all along that between 40% and 67% of Americans would lose their insurance plans, the administration is spinning faster than a dradle on Hanukah. I’ve seen it all over the news cycle: Dem strategists blaming the insurance companies, Americans, and everyone else besides the man responsible. On the Kelly File, Democrat strategist Mark Hannah said it wasn’t Obama’s fault, but that of the insurance companies. He claimed that it has been well understood that Obama’s only promise was that Americans could keep their insurance so long as their insurance company never changed even a modicum of their policies. If, after 2010, insurance companies made even the slightest alteration to insurance plans, they would not be grandfathered in. I guess Obama’s promise came with an invisible caveat. Gosh, I wish I was smart enough to understand Obama’s complexities.
This is yet another example in a long list of Democrats lying. Unfortunately, semantics generally win the battle. So long as Democrats use the right words, the masses will bow down in awe of their verbal mastery. It’s just a con.
How many revelations will it take to make people realize that Obama is a fraud? Can Valerie Jarrett just say this and get away with it? I guess so. I suppose that it is just our fault that we didn’t read in between the lines, that we didn’t understand “if you like your plan, you can keep it” to mean “if you like your plan, and there has not been a single change to it—even down to the minutia of the policy—you can keep it…for now. That is until fully government-run healthcare becomes the new law of the land.”
It’s so simple, how could we not have seen it?
