‘Obama continued to blast House Republicans, charging that their “top agenda” was depriving millions of Americans of health-care coverage. On Friday, the House passed a plan that would avert a government shutdown and keep the government operating through mid-December but would also strip funding for the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.
“It is not going to happen,” Obama said of the defunding measure. “We have come too far. We’ve overcome far darker threats than those.”’
Every word of that quote is a lie – including the a’s, the “and’s”, the “but’s” and the “the’s”…and the “uh’s” – the Post didn’t print them but you know they were there.
Accusing the Republicans of demagoguery – that’s just comical coming from the biggest demagogue of the modern era. Even the CBO notes that while healthcare costs are still going up:
- Current worker’s hours are being cut to 29 hours a week
- Companies are reducing full time staff to reduce their cost exposure
- Companies are delaying hiring decisions on new employees
- Companies like Home Depot and UPS are dumping employees into taxpayer funded “exchanges”
- The Obamacare infrastructure and software can’t even calculate the correct rates or subsidies
…and with all this, there will still be over 31 million people without coverage – through 2023.
Proposed regulations recently issued by the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of the Treasury expanded the number of people who will be exempt from paying a penalty for being uninsured relative to our previous expectations. CBO and JCT now expect that, as a result of those regulations, between 500,000 and 1 million fewer people will obtain health insurance coverage each year. In our current projections for 2023, the ACA reduces the number of people without health insurance by 25 million, leaving 31 million uninsured (compared with 30 million in our February estimate). Also as a result of those regulations, penalties collected from individuals for being uninsured are now projected to be $7 billion less over the 2014–2023 period than previously estimated.
That alone proves that this man is a shameless liar and the members of the Congressional Black Caucus are just fine with supporting a liar. That part is not racism, they supported Clinton and he was/is a liar as well.
This president is a failure, a liar, a racist demagogue and Obamcare is a cluster f*ck of epic proportions. Obama has one thing in common with his signature legislative “success” – everything he says is fiction and everything Obamacare promises is as well.
