Obama Lies Because He Knows What is Best for You
We now know that when President Obama said “if you like your health insurance you can keep it” he knew that was a false statement. Stories about the wave of individual health insurance cancellation notices blanketing the country are permeating the internet (the cause of the ObamaCare website “issues”?). Sadly, President Obama believes he can lie to the American public if it helps him impose his liberal socialist healthcare policy on the American people. Watch Jay Carney say that lies emanating from President Obama’s lips are merely the result of a pre-existing condition.
When the president said if you like your insurance plan you can keep it, what he meant was you can keep it if he likes it.
Not only was it deliberate ObamaCare policy to make sure plans millions of Americans like would no longer be available, forcing them to buy more coverage than they want or need. [T]he White House—as Mr. Obama was promising Americans they could keep their current plans—was estimating at least seven million people would not be allowed to keep their current plans.
But the truth is, he wants you to pay for coverage you’ll never use… so the money can be spent on somebody else.
The Affordable Care Act was never going to make care more affordable, except for those receiving a big subsidy at the expense of taxpayers or other insurance buyers.
ObamaCare probably won’t succeed in covering even a majority of the uninsured. It will succeed, though, in forcing millions of Americans to buy more expensive insurance than they need or want, because that’s the insurance Mr. Obama likes and will let them keep.

So, there you have it. President Obama knows what is best for us. He can lie to us because we are a bunch of idiots who cannot be trusted to make rational choices without Obama’s “assistance.” Is the vertigo caused by White House spin covered under ObamaCare? – Grizzly Joe
