$175 premium for a young, healthy student? Thanks, Obamacare! | WashingtonExaminer.com: "During a congressional hearing in August, Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., asked Marilyn Tavenner of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services whether President Obama's promise that “if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan” was true.
“It is true,” Tavenner said, but added that it was true “under the assumption that your insurance is ‘true’ insurance that provides coverage.”
Tavenner claimed that insurance that was not “true” was insurance that didn’t include coverage for things like hospitalization or cancer treatment."
It is remarkable how the President lies. And he does it so well because he is actually convinced himself that he is telling the truth.
Your insurance goes up over %100 and the policy you had is now illegal, but he does not consider this breaking his promise, 'if you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan' has not been broken because the health-care plan you had was not 'true' insurance. You were lying to yourself when told yourself you had 'insurance'. I suppose we owe an apology to the President for even thinking that our insurance was 'true' insurance.
Obama never lies, he merely uses a word in a more precise or more exalted or more complete sense than the rest of humanity. This is so tedious. Its "It depends on the meaning of what 'is' is," all over again, except this time it is not about sex, it is about your money and your health.
