Remember President Obama’s “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it. Period.” whopper?
That lie is what won Obama Politifact’s ‘Lie Of The Year Award’ in 2013.
Remember when Obama promised healthcare premiums would drop an average of $2,500 a year for a family? Good times!
Obama and his allies told the American people that already expensive doctors, hospitals, and prescriptions would somehow become less expensive by adding a layer of federal government bureaucracy to it.
No, really, Obama and his surrogates all told this to the American people with a straight face.
Now we’ve got the husband of one presidential candidate saying this about ObamaCare:
“So you’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care, and then the people who are out there bustin’ it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half; it’s the craziest thing in the world.”
Meanwhile, the other presidential candidate (who ran as a Republican but has been a New York liberal Democrat most of his life) is on record of advocating for universal government-paid healthcare (now he’s talking about repealing and replacing ObamaCare, but doesn’t say with what).
Do yourself a favor and read/listen to Speaker Paul Ryan’s ‘Better Way’ play for health care reform at http://abetterway.speaker.gov/
Here’s Speaker Ryan talking about the ‘Better Way’ for health care:
Unless you’re happy with skyrocketing premiums, higher deductibles, and less choice in your doctor, hospital, or pharmacy, that is.
Up to you.
