Obama Knew and Lied

President Obama knew as early as 2010 that Obamacare would force 40-67% of people from the individual health insurance market out of their plans.... but not one peep of this came out of President Obama's mouth. He repeatedly made the claim that insurance would be grandfathered in and that you could keep your same doctor that you've been going to before Obamacare existed after the health care law was implemented. This was a selling point in Obama getting support for the ACA from some of the citizens. Plus he repeatedly said this during the 2012 campaign. It's not all that surprising that the Obama administration hid the truth from the American people. Top Democrat Steny Hoyer admitted that Democrats and the President knew that people would not be able to keep their current health care plans.

“We knew that there would be some policies that would not qualify and therefore people would be required to get more extensive coverage,” Hoyer said in response to a question from National Review.
Another claim for selling the ACA is it would lessen health care costs for the consumer.  Unfortunately that also isn't true. Many citizens are being required to pay an additional 20% at the very least. Here is the Aetna CEO on CNBC explaining why health insurance costs are rising dramatically.

Flashback to Obama saying....

Megyn Kelly goes off on Democrat over citizens losing health insurance coverage since President Obama promised that every person who had health insurance were going to be able to keep their plans after Obamacare was instituted.

Mr. Obama has proven himself a liar time and time again. His ultimate goal is single payer and he'll say and do anything to attain that goal. He doesn't care one bit about what Americans are experiencing because of his horrible ObamaCare bill. The ends justify the means.

Of course he lied, that's all he knows how to do, and he knows no matter what he spews, the people will eat it up.
