Obama Creates Another Massive Lie, That Obamacare Was Meant for ALL, Not Just the Uninsured to Cover Up His Other Massive Lie, That Insured Americans Would Get to Keep Their Health Care Plan
Far worse than anything Bush ever said, one of the biggest lies uttered by a President in my lifetime...Obama Lies AGAIN and claims that the Affordable Care Act was not just for the uninsured, but also for the "under-insured"

Today in Massachusetts, President Obama held a rally in support of his unconstitutional health care law when he addressed a crowd over the massive trainwreck that is his signature legislation, the Affordable Care Act.
On the heels of millions of Americans losing their health care plans faster than you can count Obama's lies, the president mustered the nerve to not only give a speech in public, but to come up with an even bigger lie than the one he's been feeding to Americans for the past four years, that the new health care law was not only created for the uninsured, but for the insured who have "substandard" health care plans.
“One of the things health reform was designed to do was to help not only the uninsured but also the under-insured".
This is 100% complete, bona fide and certified BULLSHIT. On numerous occasions, as RTO has already reported, Obama made it crystal clear that if all 250 million insured Americans liked their doctors and their health care plans, they could keep them and they would not have to do anything.
"And there are a number of Americans, fewer than 5% of Americans who've got cut rate plans that don't offer real financial protection in the event of a serious illness or an accident. Remember, before the Affordable Care Act these bad apple insurers had free reign, every single year to limit the care that you received, or used minor pre-existing conditions to jack up your premiums or bill you into bankruptcy. So a lot of people thought they were buying coverage and it turned out not to be so good".
So fucking what?? These are people who liked their health care plans. They wanted to keep them. You said they could, Mr. Obama, on countless occasions. It matters not that you think their plan was "cut rate". It matters not that you think their plans didn't offer "real financial protection". It matters not that you think these insurers are "bad apples". None of this matters, because you told all 250 million insured Americans they can keep their fucking health care plans! You are a fucking liar, Mr. Obama, and now you're resorting to an even bigger lie to cover up for telling everyone they could keep their plans!
The lies continue...
"Before the Affordable Care Act, the worst of these plans routinely dropped thousands of Americans every single year".
So fucking what...you said people could keep their plans.
"..and on average, premiums for folks who stayed in their plans for more than a year shot up about 15% a year."
So what? You said people could keep their plans. And by the way, one of the major complaints from the ones in whom their insurance policies are being canceled is that these new premiums under Obamacare are skyrocketing too----way higher than 15%!
“If you had one of these substandard plans before the Affordable Care Act became law, and you really liked that plan, you are able to keep it, that’s what I said when I was running for office. That was part of the promise we made. But ever since the law was passed, if insurers decided to downgrade or cancel these substandard plans, what we said, under the law, is you gotta replace them with quality comprehensive coverage...because, that, too, was a central premise of the Affordable Care Act from the very beginning.”
You are a fucking liar. That is not what you said, Mr. Obama. You never said "If you have a 'substandard' plan before the bill became law, they could keep their plans", you clearly stated on many occasions that under the law [if/when passed] the American people will be able to keep their plans! The president is clearly playing word games here. Nothing in the president's speech before or after the ACA became law even remotely suggested to anyone that things would change for the insured after the bill became law.
"Ever since the law was passed?" "Ever since?" Nothing was supposed to change when the bill became law. That was the entire point of Obama promising people nothing would change with anyone's health care plans. Does he really expect anyone that uses more than 1% of their brain to believe that he was only referring to the time frame between before the ACA became law and the day it did?
"If insurers decided to downgrade or cancel these substandard plans"????? What the fuck does this mean? The reason the insurance companies are canceling policies is because they do not meet the new ACA provisions!! Is Obama fucking high?
First of all, Obama making the promise that people could keep their doctors and health care plans would only have meaning unless he was referring to AFTER the bill became law. If the bill never became law, no one would have had to worry about losing it. They would have just continued with their same doctors and health plans, business as usual. Secondly, Obama kept repeating that insurers would have their same health care plans and doctors after the bill was passed. So, it's a bald-faced lie that things would "change" after the bill became law.
Here is Obama saying Americans will keep their plans after Obamacare became law:
June 28, 2012 [The Affordable Care Act became law on March 23, 2010]:
"If you're one of the more than 250 million Americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. This law will only make it more secure and more affordable."
watch the clip
That clip was two years and three months after the bill became law. Did he tell the insured that things will change if their plan was "substandard"? Did it sound like he was telling the insured their time ran out twenty-seven months prior? Was he "running for office" in that clip, or had he already been elected to his second term and was six months into it?
Obama told Americans nothing in the Affordable Care Act required them to change what they had. He lied then, and he's lying now. You're a sack of shit, Mr. Obama. And it has nothing to do with you being black [or half black]. It has to do with you lying to cover up previous lies.
These are Obama's exact words on September 9, 2009:
"If you are among the hundreds of millions of Americans who already have health insurance through your job, or Medicare, or Medicaid, or the VA, nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage or the doctor you have. Let me repeat this: Nothing in our plan requires you to change what you have."
Let me repeat your words, Mr. Obama: "NOTHING IN OUR PLAN REQUIRES YOU TO CHANGE WHAT YOU HAVE".
I will repeat it again:
"NOTHING IN OUR PLAN REQUIRES YOU TO CHANGE WHAT YOU HAVE".
That doesn't tell me that I can only keep my health care plan and doctor if or when the bill becomes law. It tells me that even after it is made law, I will still keep my health care plan and doctor.
Another lie: Obama didn't just say it when he was "running for office". Every single time he told the 250,000 million insured American people they could keep their doctors and health care plans, he was already president. And he said it many times after the bill became law in 2010!
“So, if you’re getting one of these letters, just shop around on the new marketplace, that’s what it’s for.”
Ahhh, yes, you mean the letters that none of the already insured should have never received, because you told them you health care bill included no requirement for them to change anything in their plans?
Mr. Obama, you should be removed from office and your law repealed for these massive, blatant lies to the American people. And before the White House door hits you in the ass on the way out, grab Kathleen Sebelius and take her with you.
