Why is it that liberals lie, even when their canards are easily exposed? It's their nature, and they know that the media will cover for them.
Barack Obama's most famous lie was about his health care plan, the ACA. He shamelessly repeated that if you like your doctor, you could keep him, if you liked your plan you could keep it and you would save $2,500 per year. See the attached video as proof. But the lies were blatant and harmful. Here are five easily provable falsehoods.
1) Obama Care was supposed to cover everyone. The truth, in 2017, the Obama Care exchange, enrolled only ten million people, So since its enacting, only 16.5 million Americans are enrolled. That's only 5% of the US population.
2) Repealing the ACA will leave 22 million Americans uninsured. The facts are that currently, 28.5 million Americans are uninsured NOW, under Obama Care!!!. Forbes estimates that only 5 million would be uninsured under the GOP plan.
3) Obama Care would provide at least 130,000 new jobs.. But the truth is that it has killed over 10,000 small businesses (20-99 employees) and destroyed 250,000 to 300,000 jobs in the process., costing our economy over $50 billion.
4) Repealing Obama Care, according to Bernie "Santa Claus" Sanders, means that "28,000 Americans every single year could die! That's nine times more than were killed on 9/11, every single year!", --Bernie Sanders, 7/9/17.
The facts are much different. Under Obama Care, the US death rate has surged to over 20,000 deaths annually.
5) Final big lie. Obama Care is bending the health care cost downward. Nancy "You have to pass the bill to find out what's in it" Pelosi, claimed that "Health care costs have risen at the slowest rate in 50 years." Huh? In fact, Obama Care has bent the costs precipitously upward, over 36% since it became law. in 2010. The cost of a basic family plan has skyrocketed over 49%. But that won't hurt Pelosi because she made sure that it did not apply to the Democratic Congress, which rammed it through with no time for anybody to read it, and slipped it through on Christmas Eve where it would receive no media coverage.
Whether you like Obama Care or not, the fact is that he and his party blatantly lied to you. So why believe him about scandals involving the IRS, Fast & Furious, Benghazi and numerous others? WHY?
