It’s not like President Barack Obama hasn’t already been lying about health care “reform.”
We’ve been lied to about rationing and the so-called “death panels.” They’re already in operation in other countries with socialized medicine, and even in areas of the United States like Oregon and Massachusetts. And the groundwork is already laid in HR 3200. Furthermore, when the Senate caught wind of the firestorm this created, they yanked similar provisions out of the Senate version.
We’ve been lied to about taxpayer-funded abortion in government health care. Yet there is the Capps Amendment specifically authorizing it, and Democrat Rep. Zoe Lofgren admitted it. FactCheck also looked into this and found the president and his minions to be lying about it.
We’ve been lied to about the morality of government health care, with President Obama hijacking Christianity to somehow whitewash theft and irresponsibility. The Bible most assuredly does NOT condone socialism, government theft, or schemes that undermine responsibility.
We’ve been lied to about the cost of this socialist monstrosity. Obama and Company claim it won’t cost anything, yet the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says it’ll cost $1 trillion+, and other research finds a cost of $4 trillion or more.
And to top it off, President Obama and Company have lied about those who are exposing all this garbage in the plan, calling them liars for having exposed their schemes.
So, after having been lied to repeatedly in so many ways, it should probably come as no surprise that President Obama would walk onto the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives and lie to congress’ face and to the face of the American people.
No, no surprise…but still disappointing, nevertheless.
Apparently I wasn’t the only one disappointed and disgusted to see the President of the United States brazenly lie on the floor of the House to the American people.
In this video below, it sounds like several people in the audience got a belly-full of the snowjob and made their indigestion known. Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) even got so fed up at being lied to by the President of the United States on the floor of the House, he yelled “You lie!” when Obama made the claim that illegal aliens wouldn’t get coverage.
It’s sad to see this lack of decorum in the U.S. House.
But it’s sadder still to see the President of the United States so determined to trash the United States Constitution by pushing a program that is unconstitutional, illegal, fails everywhere it’s tried, and that we couldn’t even afford even if none of these other issues were a factor.
It was disrespectful…but it was even more disrespectful for an American president to defend such an un-American proposal and lie about it to congress and the people.
It’s sad to see that rude behavior in the U.S. House…but it’s sadder still to witness the President of the United States trash his opponents for telling the truth about his scheme, and lie to the U.S. Congress and the American people.
I don’t think Obama gets it. I don’t think he gets it at all. We know he thinks the American people are “silly” and “ridiculous.” He apparently thinks we’re back in the days when the Dinosaur Media reigned, and they could be counted on to echo the liberal, socialist message with no opposition in the public square. Obama must think he’s back in the “glory days” when the American people were mostly asleep and liberals could trash our country with impunity, when the American people were willing to docilely accept being lied to by their leaders.
Those days are over. And if he doesn’t realize it yet, the American people will make sure he gets the message loud and clear in 2010 when he loses his liberal support in congress.
