Of Whoppers and Obamacare.
My experience in Government taught me one thing, the bigger the pile of public money, the more vultures are circling above it. They same goes for lies. They're some pretty big whoppers spun in DC, not like the little lies from the dollar menu here locally. No offense to Burger King, but the biggest whoppers come from DC.
This whopper is from the Whitehouse, no less!
First of all, if you've got health insurance, you like your doctor, you like your plan - you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. Nobody is talking about taking that away from you.
President Barack Obama 7/16/2009 REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT AT RALLY FOR GOV. JON CORZINE
Posted above is a letter from Capital Blue Cross informing me that my health insurance plan will be terminated on December 31, 2013, courtesy of Obamacare. I paid my own health insurance plan privately for years. Apparently, that was a bad thing. I will now join the ranks of Ken Petrini and the many others that will have their coverage terminated. We are being directed to the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace for new coverage, a new plan. I can not keep my own plan! I must go to the Government.
Lying should be sanctionable.
Meanwhile, Obama touts the great interest in the Healthcare Exchange as the cause for the Exchange's failure. The website remains plagued with crashes, but I do not equate interest in the Exchange with being forcibly caused to go there.
Put another quarter in the truth jar, and I'll soon be a rich man!
