After the 'Lie of the Year' more spin

Marc Caputo:
President Obama lied. Millions of health-insurance policies will die. 
And he, his administration and Democrats are paying dearly for it.

On Thursday, Obama was awarded PolitiFact’s “Lie of the Year” for repeatedly saying “if you like your insurance plan, you can keep it” under the Affordable Care Act.

The administration refuses to fully fess up to the lie.

Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius refused to do it Friday during a Miami trip touting Obamacare. And Obama has tried to rewrite history.

“What we said was, you can keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law passed,” Obama said Nov. 4.

PolitiFact rated that statement Pants-on-Fire false.

So the president lied. Then he told a whopper about his lie. What’s to say the other assurances about the Affordable Care Act are true?

The day after Obama won the Lie of the Year, Sebelius hosted her made-for-TV chat with Obamacare recipients and advocates at the downtown Miami-Dade Main Library.

Ducking two questions about the lie, Sebelius talked up the act’s improved sign-up website and the success stories of prospective enrollees who are getting good coverage for little money.

“I hope you all will become part of the effort to spread the word,’’ she said.

But this administration’s word isn’t so trustworthy.

First came the troubles with the sign-up site for individual-market plans. Launched Oct. 1, it barely worked. But Obama and Sebelius initially suggested it wasn’t such a big deal.

Nothin’ to see here, folks.

Then came millions of individual-plan cancellation notices — about 300,000 from Florida Blue alone. The administration tried to blame insurers, which could be true in some cases but, now we know, certainly not all.

By November, 51 percent of Florida voters said the president isn’t trustworthy and honest, compared to 44 percent who say he is, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.
There is more.

The administration appears to be made up of people like the President who are uncomfortable with the truth.  The lie was blatant and meant to keep people from voting against the mess called Obamacare.


  1. I made a parody video to illustrate the lies used to cram down Obamacare.
