The President’s material falsehoods on health reform will make the difference in 2014
To understand the depth of dishonesty put on display by the proponents of the Affordable Care Act, you need only to watch two short videos.
The first video highlights three deceptive statements, made by the President in order to get his signature legislation passed. (h/t HotAir)
#1: “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”
#2: “If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan.”
#3: “We will lower your premiums by $2,500 per family, per year.”
The second shows the first two of the three statements being repeated, over, and over, and over again.
These falsehoods — the first one in particular — were instrumental in getting the law passed.
The only way the administration was going to overcome the uphill climb of American reticence to national health reform was to assure the tax paying American that, for them, they would hardly notice a change at all.
Indeed, if anything, the administration needed to convince the American people that somehow they would be able to enjoy their current coverage at a lower cost as a result of their health reform plan.
As time has marched on, reality has shown that none of these promises turned out to be true. Moreover, each executive delay in the law has been nothing more than a delay on revealing the law’s logical conclusion for another election cycle.
David Jolly’s victory in FL-13 showed the value of continually connecting one’s opponent to Obamacare. Any Republican running in the upcoming midterms would do well to follow Jolly’s lead.
The President publicly and materially misled the American people at least 36 times about a key provision of a law that overhauled one-sixth of our national economy.
He wasn’t personally held accountable in 2012, but his party can be this November.
