Glenn spent two hours today going through the lies told by the Obama administration over the past few years, and some of the biggest whoppers involved healthcare.
“Virtually everything we told you about the healthcare bill now has proven to be true,” Glenn said. “And nearly everything they told you was a lie.”
Lie 1: PRESIDENT OBAMA: For my mother to die of cancer at the age of 53 and have to spend her last months of her life in the hospital rooming arguing with insurance companies because they are saying that this may be a preexisting condition and they don’t have to pay her treatment, there’s something fundamentally wrong about that.
Truth: Glenn explained, “Well, what would be fundamentally wrong is the story itself. His mother was never challenged by her insurance company because of preexisting conditions. There was some concern over her disability claim. She was treated. And when she finally came in for treatment, it was covered by insurance. By the way, she continued to receive her $85,000 a year salary plus housing and car from her employer. But don’t mention any of that because if you do, you’re a racist. Shameless to use your mother’s illness, to lie about your mother’s circumstances to gain political advantage.”
Lie 2: PRESIDENT OBAMA: If you have insurance that you like, then you will be able to keep that insurance. If you’ve got a doctor that you like, you will be able to keep your doctor. Nobody is trying to change what works.
Truth: Even if you like your plan, you may not be able to keep it.
Lie 3: President Obama: Nobody is talking about some government takeover of healthcare.
Lie 4: President Obama: For us to say that you’ve got to take a responsibility to get health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase.
