Your Doctor? Not His Fault?
The "Lie of the Year" for 2013 was "if you like your insurance policy then you can keep your insurance policy." That was a total fabrication used to help shove Obamacare down the throats of an unwilling American public.
Today's magic number of insurance policy cancellations due to Obamacare sits at 6,286,257 policies, not people but policies. The Onbama administration has some cooked up numbers being released today that 5 million people have signed up for Obamacare as of today. The problem is that no one, including the HHS Secretary, is able to tell of us of that number how many people have PAID for that coverage. It remains a mystery which in my mind makes it another lie to the American public.
This past weekend the whine House trotted out their straw man named Dan Pfeiffer to throw some buffalo manure around on Meet The Press with David Gregory. Now keep in mind this is the same man who actually said, "The law is irrelevant" when trying to defend some administration policies.
So out trots Pfeiffer to play the blame game about "losing your doctor." I suppose Harry Reid will follow next telling us how all of those who have lost their doctor are liars?
Then And Now As Caught On Tape
Like any other of Obama's failures and lies the fault never lies with "The One." According to Pfeiffer if you lose your doctor, no matter what Obama promised, it is the fault of the insurance companies. That despite the fact that Obama has been taped over and over again claiming that it wasn't going to happen. PERIOD.
Obama's quote one more time:
“No matter how we reform healthcare, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period.”
He then had his Congressional parrots parading around their states repeating his Obamacare lies. Now they are ducking for cover as more administration foils parade out to deny the undeniable.
Blaming the insurers is the biggest bunch of hogwash I have heard regarding this whole fiasco. No matter what Pfeiffer contends I contend that "it is irrelevant" because Obama himself made such a broad, sweeping promise to the American public about all of it, most of it not true. That is what is relevant and the insurance companies have been trying to comply with the law as written and promulgated by the Department of Health and Human Services. That agency has been exhibiting the height of federal government incompetence since it was passed.
A Little Snippet Of Double Talk From Pfeiffer
This whole thing is a moving target and laws should not be a moving target despite what Dan Pfeiffer says. This is a country, supposedly until Obama came along, of laws. The very shifting and lifting of the law's provisions are major disruptions in insurance networks, doctors and plans. Everyone must know that but Pfeiffer? So lets just pretend that Obamacare has nothing to do with the turmoil that it has created. Really?
The individual mandate losses are but the tip of the iceberg and by this administration's own estimate upwards of 90 million American's prior policies will be cancelled when all is said and done. Said and done needs to never happen and this whole mess needs to be undone. What the White House is doing is an insult to thinking Americans. I don't have telling more lies as the fix to their incompetence and over reach.
So back to what Pfeiffer said about the individual mandate and reality. The reality is that immediately preceding his appearance, or shortly before, the rules got changed again which directly affect the individual mandate. Surprised? Don't be because this is an election year and the Obama administration thinks you are as dumb as a box of rocks in Omaha. it turns out that all one has to do to keep from being insured and having to pay a penalty (TAX) one just has to claim a "hardship waiver" and, VIOLA, it will be done. So easy even a 5th grader can do it.
What Dan Pfeiffer proudly, and too loudly, claimed would never happen had already effectively become a part of the law with the stroke of his bosses pen.
The whole house of cards is about to collapse and it will be whose fault? Everyone, and anyone, else's but this administration and the Democratic Congress that rammed this down our throats. The whole premise was to get young, healthy people to front the money to provide free or affordable insurance to those in need of it. But they put the cart in front of the horse as the federal government is prone to do, I find it amazing that this administration, and the Democratic party apparatus, reformed our whole nation's health care system to insure how many people at this point? And how many of those people were previously insured and lost there insurance to be fed into the Obamacare exchanges? How many of those people have actually started paying their premiums?
Someone needs to get their stinkin' thinkin' in order and it isn't those who know very well that this was a bad idea from the start and needs to be repealed. So let watch one more video of Pfeiffer beating his chops and lying out his yazoo before we close this segment out.
Political Ploys Will Nor Solve The Problem They Created
More total rubbish. All Obama's policies are anti-job creation and more regulation and control. That isn't on the right side of anything. I suggest that Obama keep this barking nut job out from in front of the cameras. It might be best for Obama to do likewise.
Obviously David Gregory must have been unaware of the "hardship waiver" provision for any old thing one wants to claim it for. either that or Gregory didn't want to have to watch Pfeiffer wipe some serious egg of his face in front of the Meet The Press viewers. I would have slam dunked him for lying right there on live television. that is the presses job - get to the truth of the matter.
Even more laughable is his claim that Barack Hussein Obama is going to be an asset in the 2014 elections. Doing what? Placing blame and telling more lies? I doubt any Democrat seeking reelection wants Obama anywhere near them, their district or their state. They, in fact, are asking him to stay away. Gee! I wonder why Dan Pfeiffer?
QUOTE OF THE DAY: On the seventh day God rested; Obama rested the other six.
