11/16/13 – Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) Delivers Weekly GOP Address … “President Obama’s so-called apology, was as phony as his fraudulent marketing of Obamacare” … “You didn’t inadvertently misspeak”
Senator Ron Johnson from Wisconsen delivered the Republican Weekly Address for November 16, 2013 and completely eviscerated President Barack Obama’s credibility as Johnson hammered Obama for his calculated lies, his fraud perpetrated on the American people and his signature piece of legislation, Obamacare.
At this point for the millions who have lost their insurance and for the millions more who are about to, it is obvious that President Obama intentionally mislead and lied to the American people in order to sell Obamacare and get it passed by a partisan Democrat vote. Now all the things that Americans were warned about are coming true. Then for political cover Obama offers a fix that simply just breaks more promises and pledges to “We the People”. Do you not think that this is just the tip of the iceberg? Just how many ten’s of millions will lose their insurance when the employer mandate kicks in next year? If you think there is chaos now with the private insureds losing insurance, guess what is going to happen when the overwhelming majority of individuals and their families lose their employer plans and are forced onto Obamacare.
Text of address from Real Clear Politics:
SEN. RON JOHNSON (R-WI): “President Obama said he wants to fundamentally transform America. So far, his attempt to transform our health care system has not been pretty – with Obamacare, he did far more than just fumble the ball.
“Contrary to his repeated promise, that ‘if you like your health care plan, you can keep it,’ millions of Americans are not only losing their insurance coverage, they are losing access to the doctors and treatments that have kept them alive.
“President Obama’s so-called apology, was as phony as his fraudulent marketing of Obamacare. He seemed to be saying he was sorry Americans actually believed him, but took no responsibility for their plight. It was like telling someone you’re sorry their dog died, but refusing to acknowledge you ran over the dog.
“Sorry Mr. President, it didn’t work. Millions of Americans are coming to realize that those are your tire tracks on their cancelled policies. It is also obvious that you didn’t inadvertently misspeak when you promised Americans they can keep their doctors and health plans – and do it all at a lower cost.
“Those assurances weren’t slight exaggerations or innocent shadings of the truth. They were statements that were fully vetted, coldly calculated, and carefully crafted to deceptively sell your health care plan to a trusting public. It was a political fraud echoed relentlessly by House and Senate Democrats who should be held accountable for the disastrous consequences of their grand deception.
“Consumer fraud this massive in the private sector could – and should – bear serious legal ramifications. For President Obama, however, it helped secure enough votes to pass Obamacare, and win reelection.
“Now America must face the truth, and Congress must work to limit the damage that Obamacare will inflict on our health care system and people’s lives. The systemic failure of the healthcare.gov website and cancelled policies are only the tip of this destructive iceberg. (full text HERE)
