Benjamin Franklin said: “Tricks and treachery are the practice of fools, that don’t have brains enough to be honest.”
After everything Obama has done, he still has more tricks up his sleeve. You’d think he’d have run out by now, but that’s not the case. First, Obama lied to us when he told us we could keep our plans if we liked them, then he lied about lying to us, then he kind of apologized. Now—because none of that worked—he is issuing a new edict: a one year delay!
According to Brietbart:
“Americans who had their insurance plans cancelled, because they didn’t meet all of ObamaCare’s coverage mandates, can renew those policies for another year. Presumably, their plans would be cancelled at the end of 2014, after the midterm elections.”
When I first heard of this, I believed it to be a trick, designed to delay the Obamacare outrage until after the mid-term elections have come and gone. Presumably, in the year leading up to the elections, Americans would forget about Obama’s lie, mindlessly vote for Democrats—whose commercials were just so nice—and then get smashed by the reality of Obamacare. This way, Obama and his cronies would bag yet another victory. But there is something else going on here, I think.
From all of the speculation I’ve heard, insurance companies that have already been forced to cancel millions of plans because of Obamacare aren’t going to play nice with this new delay. I’m going on record predicting that Obama knows this, and is planning to use it to his advantage.
After Obama has issued this oh-so-compassionate delay, and the insurance companies predictably balk at his sudden reversal, Obama will once again become the hero. He will stand up to the wicked insurance companies, demanding that they give the American people back their policies. More than half the country will instantly forget that the entire mess was Obama’s fault in the first place, and will label him a savior. Shortly after, his sagging approval rating will soar back up to a standard 44%.
Obama may not have the brains to be honest, but he does have the cunning to deceive more than half the country on a regular basis.
