Hmm, In 2007 Hillary Clinton Made Promises Just Like Obama: “You Can Keep the Doctors You Know and Trust” … “You Keep the Isurance You Have, If You Like It”
BACK TO THE FUTURE: This is not government run healthcare … Haven’t we heard this before?
In 2007 Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton offered up her own form of healthcare reform, that resembled an awful lot like Obamacare. Hillary Clinton said in Sept. 17, 2007 in Des Moines, Iowa, “You can keep the doctors you know and trust. You keep the insurance you have. If you have private insurance you like, nothing changes — you can keep that insurance.” Wait, haven’t we heard this before. But where, it just sounds so familiar.
Oh wait, it was Barack Obama and his BS promise to the American people that if you like your doctor or healthcare plan, you can keep it, PERIOD! In 2016, do we really need another one of these lying Democrats in the White House? Hillary Clinton is nothing more than the white, female Barack Obama. For the love of God, America … WAKE UP!!!
When she was last a candidate for president in 2007, Hillary Clinton unveiled her own health care proposal, which, like Obamacare, included beefed-up benefits and a catchy pitch: “If you have a plan you like, you keep it.” Obama went on to defeat Clinton, but he adopted her tag line to help win support for his own health care plan — making the same promise, for which he recently apologized.
“You can keep the doctors you know and trust. You keep the insurance you have,” Clinton said on Sept. 17, 2007, at the Broadlawns Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa. “If you have private insurance you like, nothing changes — you can keep that insurance.”
Clinton’s campaign website echoed that claim. “If you have a plan you like, you keep it,” it read.
Hillary Clinton is an old hand at health care reform. In 1993, when her husband was president, she led a health care reform effort that ultimately crashed and burned.
Welcome to Obamaland: This is still America, isn’t it … For Democrats woman have the right to choose for an abortion, but doctors should be forced to accept Medicare and Medicaid, UNREAL!
Virginia Democrats are calling the forcing of all doctors to accept Medicare and Medicaid. Unbelievable, but this is what we get these days from a ‘Gestapo-like’ government that believes in forcing people into doing things when it comes to healthcare. Remember when “We the People” thought it was unheard of to think that the Obama regime could force Americans to buy insurance? Currently physicians have the option of accepting Medicare and/or Medicaid patients. Many physicians do not because of the low reimbursement rate, especially with Medicaid. Imagine being paid $12 for an office visit? It is actually for profitable to see a Medicaid patient for free. However, Democrats now want to force doctors to accept government healthcare. What has happened to this country? These people will not be happy until they destroy the healthcare system in this country and force a single payer system upon us.
The Weekly Standard asks, could Obamacare affect Tuesday’s Virginia gubernatorial election and sink poll leading Democrat nominee, McAuliffe?
From The Mason Conservative:
Kathleen Murphy, Democrat running for the House of Delegates against Barbara Comstock, telling a forum in Great Falls that she believes it should law to force doctors to accept Medicare and Medicaid patients. Forced by government decree, mind you. A birdie sent me this:
FYI last night at the Great Falls Grange debate, Democrat delegate candidate Kathleen Murphy said that since many doctors are not accepting medicaid and medicare patients, she advocates making it a legal requirement for those people to be accepted.
She did not recognize that the payments are inadequate to cover the doctors’ costs. She also did not recognize there is a shortage of over 45,000 physicians now and that it is forecast to be 90,000 in a few years.
Democrats appear to want to make physicians slaves of the state, but Democrats don’t admit they would just drive more doctors out of practice into retirement and other occupations. The Obamacare law and regulations are causing millions of people to lose their health insurance, drop many doctors and hospitals. The HHS internal forecast is 93 million Americans would lose their health insurance due to the Obamacare law and rules about adequacy of insurance. (more)
As discussed at Legal Insurrection, one of the consequences of Obamacare is the millions of individuals going to be enroll in Medicaid. So now there will be an even greater percentage of the healthcare pool where healthcare reimbursements do not cover costs.
The great Obamacare reform is turning into the great thrust of tens of millions of people onto Medicaid.
The problem is, fewer and fewer doctors are willing to take Medicaid patients because the reimbursements are so low.
I have met numerous doctors who tell me they either refuse Medicaid patients or restrict them because the reimbursements do not cover their costs. They also double and triple book, because so many Medicaid patients who make appointments don’t show up. As to Medicare the payments currently are bearable, but only because private insurance payments for other patients make up the shortfall.
Increasingly, doctors are abandoning the government payment train wreck, and going all cash or some hybrid. This all was foreseeable and was foreseen.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is widely considered the front-runner for the Democrat nomination for President in 2016 and many believe the next President of the United States. However, the same could be said to be true in 2008 when from out of no where an unqualified, novice Senator from Illinois defeated her in the primaries. A new WSJ/NBC poll shows that Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers have slipped a bit as 46% view her positively and 33% view her in a negative light. Her positive rating is down 10% from April. As Obama’s poll numbers plummet, Hillary’s appear to be sliding as well.
What difference does it make that I failed on the International stage in Benghazi and four Americans died?
Hillary Clinton’s public image has slumped in recent months, with younger voters, Democrats and independents taking a less enthusiastic view of her, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll shows.
Overall, 46% registered a positive view of the ex-secretary of state, compared to 33% who expressed a negative opinion. As recently as April, 56% saw Mrs. Clinton in a positive light.
Mrs. Clinton has not yet declared her intentions in the 2016 presidential race, but if she runs she would be the solid front-runner in the Democratic field, public polling has shown.
From The Politico, Hillary Clinton is losing ground with young voters.
The poll also highlights that Clinton is losing support among younger voters, independents and even within her own party. She dropped 15 percentage points since April among 18- to 34-year-olds who said they had a positive view of Clinton to 38 percent. Additionally, her approval rating among independents fell from 46 percent to 35 percent. Clinton’s approval among Democrats also fell by 12 points, from 88 percent in April to 76 percent in the most recent poll.
Obviously Hillary Clinton is the front-runner for 2016 as she has the greatest name recognition; however, she does face several obstacles that could be her undoing.
- Because Hillary Clinton has such name recognition and is a known commodity, very few are going to have no opinion or not know they name so she has very little upside in undecided individuals.
- Hillary Clinton is considered part of the “Washington establishment” and by the time 2016 rolls around the American people may be beyond completely fed up with Washington “insiders”.
- After 8 years of Barack Obama and an exasperated America, the voters may just be exhausted of having a Democrat in the White House.
- If Obamacare continues to be the disaster that it is and implodes as the model is pretty much unsustainable the Americans are going to be in no mood for Hillary Healthcare either.
- Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi … when the truth comes out and it will come out, it will be damning for Hillary Clinton. She is going to rue the day she made the comment, “What difference does it make … “ She is going to be savaged in the debates and going to have to answer for Benghazi and why she turned a deaf ear to warnings and requests for more security.
- Obama Fatigue and he may be so unpopular and toxic at that point that it taints her run.
- The outcome of the 2014 elections.
- If the economy continues to stink, pathetic job growth, low employment participation rate, record federal debt and record food stamp participants, America is going to want a change of parties at the top.
- Did we say Benghazi?
- Hillary Clinton will be 69 years old in 2016 and is there that young Democrat candidate that we have not even heard of yet that will steal her thunder as Obama did in 2008?
How low can he go … after having lied to America regarding Obamacare, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period!” My bet is that it will go even lower …
According to the most recent NBC/WSJ poll, Obama’s job approval rating is down 5% this month to a new low of 42%. The Gateway Pundit reports via NBC’s Chuck Todd’s tweet, Obama’s persona; approval rating upside down for first time ever with 41% viewing him in a favorable light and 45% viewing him negatively. We have said for years that Obama’s approval rating would be in the 30′s if the liberal MSM just did their job and reported the truth and the news about Barack Obama, rather than be is propaganda shills. The MSM is just starting to fairly report on Obamacare and Obama’s lies.
Imagine, just imagine what Obama’s approval ratings would be like if the MSM decided to truthfully report on Benghazi, IRS-gate, the economy, the $17 trillion debt, Food Stamp America, Fast & Furious, the NSA, Energy policy, EPA, Obamacare and Obama’s disastrous foreign policy in Egypt, Libya, Syria and the entire Middle East. This man has been a catastrophe for the United States.
President Barack Obama’s approval rating has declined to an all-time low as public frustration with Washington and pessimism about the nation’s direction continue to grow, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Just 42 percent approve of the president’s job performance, which is down five points from earlier this month. By comparison, 51 percent disapprove of his job in office — tied for his all-time high.
The NBC/WSJ pollsters argue that no single reason explains Obama’s lower poll standing. Rather, they attribute it to the accumulation of setbacks since the summer — allegations of spying by the National Security Agency, the debate over Syria’s chemical weapons, the government shutdown and now intense scrutiny over the problems associated with the health care law’s federal website and its overall implementation.
As for other results from the NBC/WSJ poll, from the looks of how individuals feel about Congress, incumbent and establishment politicians should be a bit nervous heading into 2014 and 2016. The people may have finally reached the tipping point and will throw the bums out.

Real Clear Politics has every poll with Obama’s job approval rating underwater and an average of 43.9% approve, 51.6% disapprove and -7.7% spread.
NBC News Reports … Obama Administration Knew Millions Would Lose Their Health Insurance & Mislead Americans (Barack Obama, The Lying King)
#YOU LIE … Guess who knew you could not keep your health insurance when he promised that you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to? What else would you expect from a “Community Agitator”?
NBC News is reporting that the Obama administration knew for years that millions of Americans would not be able to keep their insurance, even if they liked them directly contradicting the promises of Barack Obama before, during and after the passage of the not-so affordable healthcare act. Yes, you read that correctly, shockingly NBC News is breaking this story that Barack Obama knowingly lied to to “We the People”. Over and over and over, Barack Obama stated from 2009 to the 2012 Presidential election that with Obamacare you can keep your insurance if you like it, no one is going to take your insurance away. LIAR!!! As stated at PJ Media, it is bad enough that Obama completely and knowingly misrepresented the truth. However, the real tragedy was that so many Americans bought this con man’s “snake oil” hook, line and sinker. Thanks to the uniformed and easily lied to individuals, the US has to suffer through another term of what might be the most dishonest and non-transparent president, EVER!
“If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” – Barack Obama
President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.
Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC NEWS that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”
Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, “40 to 67 percent” of customers will not be able to keep their policy. And because many policies will have been changed since the key date, “the percentage of individual market policies losing grandfather status in a given year exceeds the 40 to 67 percent range.”
That means the administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.
Guess what, this deceitful administration is still lying to the American people with regards to individuals can keep their insurance at White House.gov. As Weasel Zippers opines, Obama may want to update the website. But we all know the difficulties this White House seems to have with web pages.
From Breitbart.com comes the following post on 1.5 million individuals will lose their healthcare coverage and a VIDEO of White House Press Liar Jay Carney attempting to spin and backtrack on Obama’s promise to America that if you liked your health insurance, you can keep it. Obama is in serious trouble on this and so are the Democrats in 2014. When Americans finally figure out that Obama’s promises were out-right lies, he will have an approval rating in the 20′s.
UPDATE I: Hmm, isn’t this interesting … the NBC report slamming the Obama administration that they knew Americans would lose their insurance has gone bye-bye. Looks like NBC got a call to take the story down. The story still exists in the Google search, but as the Gate Way Pundit points out, does to a dead link. Didn’t NBC get the memo after their latest SNL skit this past weekend ripping HHS Sec. and Obamacare that they were no longer to make fun of the imperial president?
UPDATE II: The story is back, I guess NBC is having some “glitchy” issues like Healthcare.gov.

During Yesterday’s House Hearings on Obamacare Website Rollout, Contractor Makes Embarassing Admission about Site … ‘It Didn’t Work’
During yesterday’s House hearings on the disastrous rollout of the Obamacare website, Healthcare.gov, Republican and Democrat lawmakers grilled four of the contractors that worked on the site. However, during the questioning, an alarming and eye opening admission was made by one of the contractors. Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA) asked Andrew M. Slavitt, an executive with Optum/Quality Software Services (QSSI), if he tried to get on the Obamacare site himself. Slavitt replied, “I logged onto to create an account, but I just never received a confirmation email. It didn’t work.”.
Yup, who actually thinks the federal government can run the US healthcare system and 1/6 of the US economy?
Rep. Tim Murphy (R-Pa.) asked Andrew M. Slavitt, an executive with Optum/Quality Software Services, Inc. (QSSI), if he tried to get on the Obamacare site himself.
Yes, I did,” Slavitt replied.
“Did it work?” Murphy asked.
“Well, I logged on to create an account, was able to do so,” Slavitt replied. “I just never received a confirmation email.”
“So it didn’t work?” Murphy pressed.
“It didn’t work,” Slavitt answered.
Colorado Transgender Group Demands Free Mammograms under Obamacare Eventhough Federal Guidance Says Only Women Who are “Genetically Female” are Eligible
So much for the rules …
A Colorado transgender group is demanding free mammograms under the new Obamacare law claiming discrimination, even though current federal guidelines state that only women who are “genetically female” are eligible for subsidized mammograms. even though the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force updated guidelines to say that woman in their 40′s should not get routine mammograms for early detection of breast cancer, watch Barack Obama claim that it is unfair that transgender and that their civil rights are being violated. Because its all about the free stuff.
News that an uninsured transgender woman in Colorado was denied a free mammogram has prompted two advocacy groups to petition the federal government for equality in screening.
“That is irrational discrimination, plain and simple,” said Harper Jean Tobin, director of policy for the National Center for Transgender Equality.
“Breast-cancer screenings save lives and should be available to all women, period,” added Shane Snowdon, director of the Human Rights Campaign’s health and aging program.
President Obama’s 2010 Affordable Care Act prohibits discrimination “on the basis of sex, including on the basis of gender identity or sex stereotyping,” they wrote Friday in a letter to Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Current federal guidance says that only women who are “genetically female” are eligible for subsidized mammograms.
Former Obama White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs Says Obamacare Rollout “Excruciatingly Embarrassing”
OUCH, THIS ONE IS GOING TO LEAVE A MARK …
Former Obama White House Press Secretary and top aid Robert Gibbs calls Obamacare roll-out “Excruciatingly Embarrassing!!!” Gibbs stated on MSNBC’s Now that “This was bungled badly. This is not a server problem [where] just too many people came to the website. This is a website architecture problem.” Gibbs also went on to say that individuals need to be fired. How bad is it when an individual like Gibbs is coming out and stating the obvious as Barack Obama and current WH press secretary Carney, just call it glitchy?
From The Blaze:
“This is excruciatingly embarrassing for the White House and for the Department of Health and Human Services,” Gibbs said on MSNBC Monday. “This was bungled badly. This is not a server problem [where] just too many people came to the website. This is a website architecture problem.”
Repeating the “excruciatingly embarrassing” charge, Gibbs said it’s “not fatal because there are still many weeks and days to go before the enrollment period closes at the end of March.”
He said buying health care through the exchanges is different from a one-time music purchase on iTunes, but that “if they don’t get these glitches figured out fast, people aren’t going to come back” to compare costs and make their final decisions.
“I hope they’re working day and night to get this done and when they get it fixed I hope they fire some people that were in charge,” Gibbs said. “We knew there were going to be some glitches, right? But these are glitches that go, quite frankly, beyond the pale of what should be expected.”
OBAMACARE … EPIC FAIL!!!
Welcome to the train wreck of Obamacare that everyone knew it was. From Bloomberg News, Obamacare health exchanges are an unmitigated disaster. Not only did these clowns have three years to develop the exchanges, but how does ‘The One’ use web traffic as an excuse when he claimed there were 30 million uninsureds? But it gets worse if possible. Not only can’t individuals access the healthcare exchange web pages, as JWF opines “you may not even be covered even if you manage to sign up.” What a colossal clusterf*ck. But what else would you expect from Obama’s signature piece of legislation?
Insurers are getting faulty and incomplete data from the new U.S.-run health exchange, which may mean some Americans won’t be covered even after they sign up for an insurance plan.
While it’s not clear how widespread the problem is, the reports from industry consultants are the first hint that the technical troubles faced by consumers trying to enroll in health plans under the Affordable Care Act may also be hitting the insurers. The companies are receiving electronic files that can’t open or have so much missing information on new enrollees they’re unusable, the consultants said.
Some insurers have been forced to fix entries by hand, said Bob Laszewski, an insurance-industry consultant based in Arlington, Virginia.
“If we don’t see substantial improvement by the end of this week, then I would throw up the yellow flag,” said Dan Schuyler, a consultant advising states and insurers on the exchanges. “If we don’t see it in the next two to three weeks, it’s time for red flags. The concern is some people could get to Jan. 1, and not have coverage.”
Since the exchanges opened on Oct. 1, consumers have struggled to access the online marketplaces, which have been overwhelmed by millions of visitors.
SNL Rips Obamacare, “Winners and Losers” … Healthcare.gov: “How could you not be ready? That’s like 1-800-Flowers getting caught off-guard by Valentines Day.”
What makes this skit on Obamacare so funny … the fact that it is the truth!!!
Even SNL could not overlook the colossal failures of the Obamacare website this week in ‘Winners & Loser.’ Skip to the 1:00 mark unless you want to hear the usual dribble of the liberal media attacking the GOP and demonizing the Tea Party. One of the Losers for the week was Obamacare and the Healthcare.gov web site for its numerous technical issues and failures. And just think, for years SNL said that they had no material on Obama to make jokes. Go figure.
“You can’t campaign on the fact that millions don’t have healthcare and then be surprised that millions don’t have healthcare. How could you not be ready? That’s like 1-800-Flowers getting caught off-guard by Valentines Day.”
