ObamaCare's Biggest Lies

Two lies, one deception and one questionable assertion from Obama’s 9/9/09 speech before Congress:

1) LIE: “There are also those who claim that our reform efforts would insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false.”

Judge Andrew Napolitano, just like Obama, taught Constitutional law.
Napolitano makes this observation as to why Joe Wilson spoke the truth:

2) LIE: “under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions”

In 1973, a far Left Supreme Court -- in utter defiance of the United States Constitution -- invented a new “right” found NOWHERE in the REAL Constitution.

That new “right” allows mothers to murder their children for no higher purpose than mere convenience.

The exact same logic used by Judge Napolitano in refuting Obama lie #1 applies equally to this second lie. The courts WILL require ObamaCare to fund abortions!

3) Deception: Notice how Obama danced around the issue of a “government takeover” without actually denying the obvious:

“Now, my health care proposal has also been attacked by some who oppose reform as a ‘government takeover’ of the entire health care system. As proof, critics point to a provision in our plan that allows the uninsured and small businesses to choose a publicly sponsored insurance option, administered by the government just like Medicaid or Medicare. (Applause.)

So let me set the record straight here. My guiding principle is, and always has been, that consumers do better when there is choice and competition…

[Blah, Blah, Blah while doing more tap dancing around the obvious]”

A government takeover of the entire health care system has been a goal of the Democrats ever since FDR, in 1944, announced his “Second Bill of Rights” (if not before).

Does anybody remember HillaryCare? To deny this goal is to insult the intelligence of all Americans (many of whom -- unfortunately -- richly deserve such insults).

Before I offer the link which more fully debunks this assertion, please note that the link includes the following:

A) A 1961 speech by Ronald Reagan warning of the strategy behind Socialist health care.

B) A video clip catching various Dems admitting their goal IS a government monopoly.

C) Text prooving that a “government takeover” is already “baked into the cake” of the House bill.

Click here for all that and more.

4) Questionable: “I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits -- either now or in the future.”

A) Pelosi’s House bill:

The CBO asserts the House bill adds over $1 TRILLION in new entitlement spending and $583 BILLION in new taxes with a net ADDITION to the debt of $239 BILLION.

Say bye, bye to Pelosi’s House bill!

B) The Baucus Senate bill:

The CBO asserts the Baucus Senate bill would:
“result in a net reduction in federal budget deficits of $49 billion over the 2010–2019 period”

i) Do we REALLY believe the government will save $409 billion through reductions in Medicare spending?

ii) Will this alleged $409 billion savings come at the expense of Medicare recipients?

iii) Will unions -- with Cadillac health insurance plans -- accept “an excise tax on health insurance companies that sell plans that cost more than $21,000 for families and more than $8,000 for individuals”.

iv) Would we be better off waiting until 2011, when Republicans take back the Congress and offer up legislation which provides:

a) Tort reform (which would kill the Dim Cash Cow).

b) Real competition among insurance companies across state lines.
