Umm, Did Democrat New York Senator Kirstin Gillibrand Just Admit “We All Knew” that Barack Obama was Misleading Americans on ObamaCare
Welcome to Obamaland where knowing lying and defrauding the American people is simply not being specific.
Check this out, New York Democrat Senator Kirstin Gillibrand just admitted on ABC’s ‘This Week’ that they all knew that Barack Obama was lying when he promised the American people, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, period.” When asked by Martha Raddatz whether she had been mislead by Barack Obama, Gillibrand’s response was … “No, we all knew.”
New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said this morning on “This Week” that President Obama should have been more specific when he made his famous promise — which he subsequently backtracked on — that Americans who liked their health care plans could keep them under his signature health care law.
When asked a second time if she felt misled by the president, Gillibrand repeated, “He should have just been specific.”
“No, we all knew.
How do you like them apples America? This Democrat Senator just admitted that they all [Democrats] knew that people could not keep their insurance if they liked it. Kirstin Gillibrand thinks that Obama’s credibility issue is the implementation of “glitchy” Healthcare.gov, not the fact that he and the rest of Democrats knowingly lied to people. What Obama and Democrats did is called FRAUD!
However, its more than that. If they knew and knowing mislead the people as Alinsky principles teach them that the ends justify the means, it would mean they also partook in a conspiracy, collusion and a cover up. Democrats are kidding themselves if they think that they and Obama do not have a credibility problem with “We the People”. Democrats are in for a hell of a time in 2014.
Comments from video:
Raddatz: Do you feel misled by Obama?
Gillibrand: He should have been more specific. Because the point is if you are being offered a terrible health care plan that the minute you get sick you are going to have to go into bankruptcy. Those plans should never be offered. [But yet millions of Americans lost perfectly good healthcare plans, even Democrat Kirsten Powers.]
Raddatz: So were you misled?
Gillibrand: No, we all knew. The whole point of the plan is to cover things people need.
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.
Even Liberal Democrat Howard Dean Asks, “I Wonder If Obama Has the ‘Legal Authority to Do This’ Regarding Obama’s Fix (VIDEO)
Folks, even Howard Dean can see this is tyranny …
Following Barack Obama’s speech where he proposed a “keep your plan” fix for Obamacare, former Vermont Governor, DNC Chair and Democrat presidential candidate Howard Dean pondered while on MSNBC whether Emperor Obama had the legal authority to even propose such a “FIX” as the law had been passed by Congress. Hmm, many Conservatives are asking the same question regarding Obama’s actions. Wow, does that make Dean a racist?
“I wonder if he has the legal authority to do this, since this was a congressional bill that set this up?”
So what is it with Barack Obama? Does he think because it is called Obamacare that he has the legal authority to change any part of the law he feels by executive fiat? Imagine if a Republican did that with abortion? When Republicans confront Obamacare, they are constantly told that it is the law of the land. Really? If it is, then how come Barack Obama thinks he can just change it himself? Maybe the real probalem with Obama is that he was too busy reading the Communist Manifesto as a youth instead of watching School House Rock and “I’m Just a Bill”.
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.
Barack Obama Compares Nelson Mandela To America’s First President George Washington, Who Knew the Father of Our Country was an America-bashing Communist?
As Barack Obama was on his $100 million vacation in South Africa, Obama compared former South African President Nelson Mandela to America’s first President George Washington. Hmm. I realize that Obama is trying to say something nice about a dying man, but to compare to George Washington, really? I guess the president just over looks that little fact that Mandela is a Communist. I do not remember George Washington being one. But then again, in Obama’s world, who knows. And then there was that little thing of Mandela bashing America. But I guess when Obama feels the need to apologize for America all the time, maybe he relates? Once again, Obama lives up to his moniker, “Divider in Chief” and a community agitator. Via ABC News, via Free Republic:
Although President Obama will not get a chance to see Nelson Mandela on his trip to South Africa, he is using his historic visit to pay tribute to the man he calls a hero to the world and will meet today with the Mandela family.
At a joint press conference with South African President Jacob Zuma this morning, President Obama spoke extensively about Mandela’s legacy.
“Our thoughts and those of Americans and people all around the world are with Nelson Mandela and his family and all of South Africans,” Obama said. “The struggle here for freedom, Madiba’s moral courage, this country’s historic transition to a free nation has been a personal inspiration to me, an inspiration to the world, and it continues to be.”
“Mandela shows what was possible when a priority is placed on human dignity, respect for law, that all people are treated equally,” Obama said.
“And what Nelson Mandela also stood for is that the well-being of the country is more important than the interests of any one person,” Obama continued. “George Washington is admired because after two terms he said enough, I’m going back to being a citizen. There were no term limits, but he said I’m a citizen. I served my time. And it’s time for the next person, because that’s what democracy is about. And Mandela similarly was able to recognize that, despite how revered he was, that part of this transition process was greater than one person.”
Or as Weasel Zippers opines, “Except for the fact that Mandela is an America-bashing Communist who once said, “If there is a country in the world that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America.”
Really GOOGLE, this is truly shameful …
As over a billion Christians celebrate Easter and the resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior … GOOGLE in their infinite wisdom took the opportunity to celebrate the day to honor Cesar Chavez’s birthday. So GOOGLE does not honor Easter with a pic of Jesus or heck, how about even an Easter bunny or basket. Nope, instead they insult Christians everywhere and honor with its ‘Doodle’ search logo art to mark the birth of left-wing labor leader, Cesar Chavez. This is a new low, even for the Left.
The timing is oddly appropriate; as Dennis Prager has written, “You cannot understand the Left if you do not understand that leftism is a religion,” and one with its own sources of mythology. Back in 2006 at Tech Central Station, Lee Harris described French Marxist Georges Sorel (1847-1922), and the concept of the Sorelian Myth:
Venezuela’s Acting President Maduro Urges Barack Obama to Stop Plot by Pentagon & CIA to Kill His Pro-Democracy Opponent Henrique Capriles
Why would the “Socialist” in Chief plot to kill a pro-democratic opponent?
Nicolas Maduro, the acting Venezuela president, is urging President Barack Obama to stop the assassination plot by the Pentagon and CIA to kill Maduro’s pro-Democracy opponent, Henrique Capriles. Madura insinuated that the Pentagon and at the CIAwere behind a plan to assassinate the right-wing presidential candidate to create chaos.” Crazy huh? Doesn’t Maduro understand that Obama is a fellow socialist? Although Obama as a community agitator likes his chaos, he likes his socialism better. As Weasel Zippers states, “That’s no way to treat a fellow comrade.”
Socialism … the bonds that bind
Venezuela’s acting president urged U.S. leader Barack Obama to stop what he called a plot by the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency to kill his opposition rival and trigger a coup before an April 14 election.
Nicolas Maduro said the plan was to blame his opponent’s murder on the OPEC nation’s government and to “fill Venezuelans with hate” as they prepare to go to vote following the death of socialist leader Hugo Chavez.
Maduro first mentioned a plot against his rival, Henrique Capriles, last week, blaming it on former Bush administration officials Roger Noriega and Otto Reich. Both rejected the allegations as untrue, outrageous and defamatory.
“I call on President Obama – Roger Noriega, Otto Reich, officials at the Pentagon and at the CIA are behind a plan to assassinate the right-wing presidential candidate to create chaos,” Maduro said in a TV interview broadcast on Sunday.
Maduro, who is Chavez’s preferred successor, said the purpose of the plot was to set off a coup and that his information came from “a very good source.”
- Some hoping for a democratic vote following the death of their socialist leader
BREAKING NEWS: Venezuela President Hugo Chavez, Dead at Age 58 (Update: Sean Penn Says … “I Lost a Friend”), (Update: Carter Praises Positive Legacies)
BREAKING NEWS: Venezuela President Hugo Chavez, Dead at Age 58.
Hugo Chavez will not be down for breakfast. The socialist dictator of Venezuela has passed away from cancer. Make room Kim Jung Il, Hell has a new resident. After numerous claims that Chavez was recovering from cancer from his propaganda machine, Chavez succumbed to complication of cancer. His death leaves Venezuela bitterly divided. But isn’t that exactly what a dictator does while in power, divides the people so that they are too busy fighting each other and blaming eash other, than focusing on the real problem, the man in power. Doesn’t that sound familiar, but I digress. Chavez, a devoted enemy of the United States, was praised by his bud, former Democrat President of the United States Jimmy Carter. How misguided could one possibly be and a glimpse into what Democrat presidents believe in and call help to the people. Other Democrats like Rep. Jose E. Serrano (D-NY) released a statement praising former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez; however, neglecting the crackdowns of his political opponents. A glimpse into the Democrat party indeed. According to accounts, elections will be held in 30 days, and Vice President Nicolas Maduro will assume the presidency in the interim.
UPDATE I: As reported by the AP:
We came to know a man who expressed a vision to bring profound changes to his country to benefit especially those people who had felt neglected and marginalized,” Carter said in a statement.
Carter noted that while he did not always agree with Chavez‘s methods, he “never doubted Hugo Chávez’s commitment to improving the lives of millions of his fellow countrymen,” and said that the former Venezuelan president “will be remembered for his bold assertion of autonomy and independence for Latin American governments and for his formidable communication skills and personal connection with supporters in his country and abroad to whom he gave hope and empowerment.”
President Hugo Chavez was a former paratroop commander and self-styled “subversive” who waged continual battle for his socialist ideals. He bedeviled the United States and outsmarted his rivals time and again, while using Venezuela’s vast oil wealth to his political advantage.
Chavez led one coup attempt, defeated another and was re-elected three times. Almost the only adversary it seemed he couldn’t beat was cancer. He died Tuesday in Caracas at age 58, two years after he was first diagnosed.
Hmm, didn’t insanoid, former NBA bad boy and attention whore Dennis Rodman call the socialist dictator of North Korea Kim Jung Un a friend as well? Oh yeah, another enemy of the United States.
“Today the people of the United States lost a friend it never knew it had. And poor people around the world lost a champion,” says Penn in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “I lost a friend I was blessed to have. My thoughts are with the family of President Chavez and the people of Venezuela.”
Penn, who has been a longtime supporter of Chavez, made a surprise appearance in Bolivia in December to attend a candlelight vigil for the health of the leader. Said Penn at the vigil: “He’s one of the most important forces we’ve had on this planet, and I’ll wish him nothing but that great strength he has shown over and over again. I do it in love, and I do it in gratitude.”
Take a good look how people are treated by pro-Chavez folks who are perceived being apart of the opposition. A news media crew is attacked under the assumption they were working for the opposition media to Chavez.
UPDATE III: More on the statements from former US President Jimmy Carter because this is really important for Americans to understand about a Democrat party that has so lost its way. How is it possible that we have such prominent Democrats coddling a man who oppressed his people? These are the same people that slam Conservatives, Republicans and the Tea Party … but praise the good of a dictator. As the Gateway Pundit opines, Carter wants you to remember the positive things that Chavez did. Hmm, didn’t Hitler make the trains run on time? Think about that America. Give that one a long good thought. Especially the next time you vote.
Statement From Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter on the Death of Hugo Chavez – Carter Center
Rosalynn and I extend our condolences to the family of Hugo Chávez Frías. We met Hugo Chávez when he was campaigning for president in 1998 and The Carter Center was invited to observe elections for the first time in Venezuela. We returned often, for the 2000 elections, and then to facilitate dialogue during the political conflict of 2002-2004. We came to know a man who expressed a vision to bring profound changes to his country to benefit especially those people who had felt neglected and marginalized. Although we have not agreed with all of the methods followed by his government, we have never doubted Hugo Chávez’s commitment to improving the lives of millions of his fellow countrymen.[...]
At the same time, we recognize the divisions created in the drive towards change in Venezuela and the need for national healing. We hope that as Venezuelans mourn the passing of President Chávez and recall his positive legacies — especially the gains made for the poor and vulnerable — the political leaders will move the country forward by building a new consensus that ensures equal opportunities for all Venezuelans to participate in every aspect of national life.
He Said He Would Reach Across the Aisle … Barack Obama, the Most Polarizing President Ever During First Term as President
BARACK OBAMA, THE DIVIDER IN CHIEF … According to Gallup, Barack Obama is the most polarizing President ever during their first term in office.
In the end it was not even close. Barack Obama was the most polarizing president in the history of Gallup polling for a president during their first term in office. Obama finished his 4 years in office with a 70 point partisan average gap, the next closest was George W. Bush at 61. Barack Obama finished his fourth year as president, tied with GWB at 76. Gallup tries to explain Obama’s record polarization by saying it is just the era we live in. What they won’t tell you is that the reason for the polarization is at record levels is because Barack Obama is trying to fundamentally change the United States into a Western European socialist country. That is why so many who appose him have such a negative view of his policies. Obama once said that he would reach across the aisle and that there were no red or blue states, only the United States. What a fraud perpetrated on the American people.
Obama on Pace to Be Most Polarizing President Yet
The average party gap in ratings of President Obama during the four years of his presidency is 70 percentage points. If that average holds, it would surpass Bush’s record 61-point average polarization during his eight-year presidency by a considerable margin. Bush also finished his presidency with a significantly larger party gap in job approval ratings than the previous leader, Bill Clinton (55 points).
Hey America, how’s that “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for you?
