See What Liberal Democrat Barney Frank Says About Obama Admin on Obamacare: “They Just Lied to People”
JUST HOW BAD IS OBAMACARE … EVEN UBER-LIBERAL DEMOCRAT BARNEY FRANK CALLS IT NOTHING BUT A PACK OF LIES … AND CALLED OBAMA A LIAR.
You know that Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation is a disaster when even libs like former Rep. Barney Frank come out against the Obama administration and say, “they just lied to people.” Think about what Barney Frank just said. A liberal Democrat just admitted that Barack Obama knowingly lied to the American people. Does anyone really wonder why Obama has no more credibility? Frank stated in his HUFO interview that Obama should have better explained the situation to the American people, and laid out the possibilities of losing their existing plans. Sorry, trying to hold back the laughter. Had Obama done such a thing, he knew that the ACA would be more unpopular than it already was and he would lose reelection. That is why he lied.
President Barack Obama made a major political mistake by lying about the details of his health care plan, according to former House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.).
“The rollout was so bad, and I was appalled — I don’t understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis,” Frank told HuffPost during a July interview. “But frankly, he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn’t true. And you shouldn’t lie to people. And they just lied to people.”
Obama has taken significant flak in conservative circles for claiming that his health care overhaul would allow all existing health care plans to continue, when, in fact, new consumer protection standards would require some people to sign up for more comprehensive insurance. The law provides government subsidies to help people of modest means pay for the more robust plans. Frank is a strong supporter of the law, and he has repeatedly defended Obama and his legislative agenda.
“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor PERIOD!
If you like your health care plan you will be able to keep your healthcare plan PERIOD!
No one will take it away, no matter what!”
This is the reason why Obamacare is as unpopular as ever and will become even more unpopular in the future. Everyone has not figured out they that they have been lied to.
Let the Games Begin … SEC Charges Former FANNIE MAE & FREDDIE MAC Execs with Securities Fraud
And so it begins … A bit delayed, but better late than never.
The SEC, Securities & Exchange Commission,has charged six former executives of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac with securities fraud. Get ready for the Enron of the 2010′s. Those who committed fraud and deception upon the people of the United States may finally be held accountable. However, as stated at Michelle Malkin.com, there seem to be some missing from the list … where is former Fannie Mae head and Clinton/Obama pal Franklin Raines?
The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged six former top executives of the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) with securities fraud, alleging they knew and approved of misleading statements claiming the companies had minimal holdings of higher-risk mortgage loans, including subprime loans. [...]
Three former Fannie Mae executives — former Chief Executive Officer Daniel H. Mudd, former Chief Risk Officer Enrico Dallavecchia, and former Executive Vice President of Fannie Mae’s Single Family Mortgage business, Thomas A. Lund — were named in the SEC’s complaint filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
The SEC also charged three former Freddie Mac executives — former Chairman of the Board and CEO Richard F. Syron, former Executive Vice President and Chief Business Officer Patricia L. Cook, and former Executive Vice President for the Single Family Guarantee business Donald J. Bisenius — in a separate complaint filed in the same court.

Massachusetts Democrat US Rep Barney Franks Won’t Seek Reelection in 2012
That’s all folks …
Massachusetts Democrat Barney Franks will not be running for reelection in 2012. Franks blamed redistricting for his decision; however, he had a tougher than expected reelection bid in 2010. However, it probably has more to do with the fact that most of America is on to him and his “fingerprints” that were all over the 2008 financial crisis.
Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) announced Monday that he will not seek reelection in 2012, ending a three-decade career in the House.
Frank, 71, is the top Democrat on the Financial Services Committee and the architect, with former Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), of the sweeping Wall Street regulatory reform law enacted in 2010.
He announced his decision at an afternoon press conference in his hometown of Newton, Mass., where he said redistricting played a major role in his retirement.
“I was planning to run again, and then congressional redistricting came,” Frank said.
Reelection? Heck, as the Gateway Pundit reminds us, earlier this year Newt Gingrich had suggested that Barney Franks should have been jailed. The post could be subtitled, the rats are fleeing the sinking ship … Frank 17th House Democrat to announce retirement.

Barney Frank Says Death Tax Not Punishment Because Heirs Didn’t do Anything to Deserve It … But Government Does
Double taxation death taxes are AOK for Barney Franks.
US Rep. Barry Franks (D-MA) says that high estate taxes are perfectly ok because the heirs did nothing to earn it and that its a pure gift to someone who hasn’t done it on their own and did not work hard. They were just lucky enough to be related to some one who gave them the money.
But in the eyes of Liberal Democrats, its just fine for the government to take someone’s money where the government did nothing to earn it or work for it . In fact, the government has already taxed the assets at least once. These liberals would rip the gold fillings from your teeth if possible.
