Shock: Obama Also, Get This, Lying About Only "Cut Rate," "Bad Apple" Insurance Being Canceled [Ace]

The other day USAToday ran an editorial in which they blamed Obama slightly for his dishonesty on keeping your plan, but then claimed his new lie, that only "bad apple" insurance was being cancelled, was true, so who cares?

I attempted to shame them on Twitter into actually, get this, fact-checking a claim that Obama, A Serial Liar From Day One, was making.

Of course they didn't. And probably won't.

But, courtesy of Hot Air, Pro Publica has looked into it.

Their conclusion? Yes, people who had good coverage -- comprehensive coverage with no loopholes -- are having their insurance cancelled and are being re-offered basically the same insurance, but with double the rates and higher other out-of-pocket costs.

Read the article. The representative for Kaiser Permanente is relatively upfront about what's going on, though he employs vague language to express it. The relatively healthy were "winners" in the old system, and the uninsurably sick were the "losers;" the new law makes the losers the winners and the winners the losers.

Not exactly what Obama promised everyone when he declared he'd make health insurance work better for everybody, huh?

I have no idea what the press will do with this. It's not just that Obama lied 36 times, then lied about lying; it's that everything he now says is, get this, More Lies.

Can the press report this? Can the Obama-loving media really bring itself to report that their Beloved is simply lying about every single aspect of his signature program?

One could make a case, I suppose, for the Redistributive Justice of shellacking the Middle Class with greatly increased premiums (a government mandated hidden tax) in order to help the poor and sick.

But Obama did not make that case. That case would have been tricky, so he simply lied to the public about what Obamacare was.

And he continues doing so until this very day.

And the media, such as USAToday, continues to repeat and reaffirm his new lies, that only cut-rate insurance is being cancelled, and the only reason for the doubling of premiums is that "better insurance" is now in the offing.

No.

Better insurance is indeed being offered -- but to someone else entirely.

You fucked up, America. You trusted him.

BTW: I am temporarily without my usual computer so I'm using this old beater. And I only have the Open Blogger password. So I'll be using this for most of the day.
