Obama Lied

Obama lied to all of us about the Affordable Care Act, (better known as Obama Care) that was forced onto the American public, from a Democratic-controlled House of Representatives, a Democrat controlled Senate and by a Democrat president in the White House. The Affordable Care Act legislation was written behind closed and locked doors by the Senate Democrats and House of Representatives Democrats and the bill was passed by Democrats. So much for being out in the open about it. I think the word Obama uses is being transparency. Now we have all heard Obama from the very start of Obama Care telling us if we liked our doctors we could keep them, if we liked our insurance we could keep it. (He Lied and he knew it when he said it) Well what did he mean? He now says that isn’t what he meant. That in my opinion is called back peddling or better yet lying. Sorry, you can only keep your insurance if, nothing has changed with it, including cost increases, and it has to have certain things covered. You need mental health, maternity and substance abuse, etc. Well here is the thing about that; At nearly 68 years of age I do not need maternity or substance abuse coverage, but I and a lot of other Americans still have to purchase it. When you come right down to it, no one gets to keep their insurance. Obama has lied from the very beginning of it. It was covered up by Nancy Pelosi’s great revelation to the American people; “You have to pass it to see what is in it. That is the dumbest statement ever! And now because it was passed before we knew what was in it the federal government is now requiring the American people to buy coverage that a person does not need or want. The fault (better yet disaster) or problems with Obama Care are at the feet of the Democrats and no one else because most of them passed a bill that they never read and now most of them are back peddling also. They did not care because it did not pertain to them. Americans would have better laws if the House, Senate and White House did not have the power to exempt themselves from them. If your representative or senator voted for an exemption from Obama Care for themselves and their families, they need to be voted out of office. They are not above the law. They should be held to the law (same standards), like all the other American citizens in this country that they are supposed to be representing.
