Obamas Lies?

How did we go from 47 million uninsured Americans down to 30 million? Yet at the same time Obama claims that 14 thousand are losing their insurance every day? The Census numbers don't match his claim.

He claims that the illegals aren't going to be covered, yet the dems refused to accept TWO amendments put forth by the reps to disqualify illegals. Or is he going to do as he told Mexico and legalize them all?

  • No one is too sure what his final actions will be. But it is not adding up. And he has yet to answer the serious questions with clarity

  • it is all lies. I couldn't believe some of the bs dished out last night! Even the way he spoke was demanding and dictating. The way he looked to the right and 'scolded' them for some of the "lies" spread about this plan, was cold and showed a divide between sides. He is the POTUS, he is supposed to unite and appease both sides and come up with a mutual common ground. He is still pushing and pushing without LISTENING to what people say. He is all about making history and doesn't care what the path of his destruction leaves behind!!!

  • The numbers will never add up.
    The Bill (H.R.3200) is filled with Loop Holes, this Bill looks like Swiss cheese. So lets cross our fingers that they start filling in those holes with amendments that clearly state no illegals. Ya know, like this NO Immigrants can access this plan without verification of citizenship or a contracting license by your country of origin. Oh and if you don't know why a contracting license would apply there is no hope for you.

  • One of the biggest ways politicians lie, is by saying a truth about the direct text of the bill, but omitting the natural and practical results of the bill that aren't in the actual text.

    For example: you will not find the word "rationing" anywhere in the bill. But it's basic high school level economics that when demand exceeds supply, and you're still trying to get the product to everyone, you either have to ration, or reduce quality or amounts given.

    It's not in the bill, but there's no real-life practical way around that.

  • I think anyone who buys any of the lies he told last night is seriously delusional. There's NO WAY he can make UHC work without increased costs. If he thinks anyone bought that, HE is delusional! He said he'd "veto any and everything that comes across his desk that would result in raising costs." He'll have to reign Congress in and veto everything they propose. His plan will double the national deficit within 5 yrs and triple it in 10. Why not cut the ridiculous pork spending, like, I don't know, say STOP SPENDING $3 BILLION on spreading SAND on beaches!

  • The proposals, if they were to pass, wouldn't even go into effect until 2013! He lied about illegals not being covered. He lied about UHC not covering abortions. I also did not like his demeanor and tone of voice. He came off very arrogant. "I will reqire...I will demand...I want...blah blah blah." Hey Bozo...this ain't about YOU! It's not YOUR money we're talking about. His only interest in this passing is to stroke his EGO!

  • More of that "fuzzy math". The CBO has always said it is only about 6 million people total who are truly uninsured. The rest was a very inflated and "statistical" rendering of 50 million uninsured. Well, at least before BO started his "job stimulus package" and so many lost their jobs. Maaayyybbbee, he did that so the numbers would match his "fuzzy math" numbers. Boy, he got me with that.

  • He subtracted the illegals so he could say they were not included. Oh lord, I feel for anyone who does not see through this scum
