$1.6 trillion by 2029

Last night Obama said that his health care plan will not add to the national debt. A report was released today by the Congressional Ways and Means Committee that the health plan Obama is pushing will add $1.6 trillion to the deficit by 2029. How can he knowingly stand in front of his teleprompter and read his prepared answers to the prearranged questions and lie to us with a straight face?

  • Obama has admitted he has no clue what is in the revised bill so he is lying if he says he knows things will be paid for. If they are it will be on the backs of the middle class. Junk food taxes, cigarette taxes, soda taxes, alcohol taxes and new taxes for buying a TV will happen. That is a tax on the middle and lower income earners. Cigarette tax is a tax on the low income since they smoke more than any other group. Throw in the extra we will each pay if Cap and Trade makes it through the Senate and we all will be giving up half our income to taxes and utilities. Obama is in this for the power he does not care about any of us. He did not care enough about his own mother to use his clought as an attorney to help her why would he help any of us.

    He's no different than a network news anchor. You know, the ones who smile, with a twinkle in their eye while they tell you about the atrocities in the world?! They just read the teleprompter, they don't internalize or comprehend.

  • One of 2 things. He does it all the time and he's used to it or he really doesn't know the facts and is an idiot.
