People Are Going To Die Under Obamacare

It’s still the law of the land and it is terrible. Many are unable to buy insurance because the insurance companies are pulling out of their states. Others simply cannot afford the increased premiums. Others will die because they will not have life-saving procedures because they can’t afford the deductables.

People are going to die and it is the fault of every Democrat in the Senate and a handful of Republicans – including John McCain. They ruined the only chance we had to get rid of the monstrosity called the Affordable Care Act and commonly called Obamacare.

The law had to be repealed. It is a failure. Even former President Obama is trying to distance himself from the terrible law that carries his name:

“Obama Stays Silent on Health Care Debate. Here’s Why.”

Democrats worry if President Obama tries to publicly save his health care law, he might kill it.”

Well, he has destroyed the political career of every Democrat he has ever campaigned for – including Hillary Clinton.

As the process for repealing and replacing Obamacare incrementally advances through Congress, its namesake remains largely absent from the give-and-take of the debate.

President Barack Obama has weighed into the health care fray only occasionally—and always from a distance—even as his eponymous signature piece of domestic legislation comes under heightened threat.

It is not for lack of want. Aides and advisers say that the former president is, like all Democrats, troubled by ability of Republican leadership to keep repeal efforts alive. One official said he did not expect GOP lawmakers to get even this far. But he is wary of engaging in a highly visible way, even in this critical hour, for fear that it would backfire politically.”

He has what Mrs22 calls the ‘Sadim touch’. Sadim is Midas spelled backwards and it means everything he touches turns to sh*t.

Not At The Real Revo We’re Not

“We’re All Being Pretty Quiet About Obama’s Failures, Aren’t We?”

As we discussed at the beginning, a major theme of Obama’s presidency has been that Al Qaeda’s on the run, ISIS is the JV team, they’re totally contained, and we’re going to stay the course while fighting them. This is quite obviously wrong to everyone outside of most newsrooms. Also, Obama has claimed that we’re out of Afghanistan and Iraq. Except that we’re in no way out of Afghanistan and Iraq.”

Yeah,yeah. We have covered all that and a lot more. We spent a lot of time and pixels on the debacle that was Fast and Furious,running guns to Mexican drug cartels, refusing to allow our border protectors to protect our borders, his bowing in supplication to terrorist leaders, apologizing to the world about the evil United States, his bully tactics against conservatives, and more. Barack H. Obama was the antithesis of everything that is America and he smirked about it.

We were shocked when Americans elected him in 2008 and disappointed when he was reelected in 2012. But, being who we are, we didn’t trash and burn cars, stab people or hit them on the head with bike locks. Instead we Americans staged entirely peaceful demonstration rallies. We waved American flags and made speeches. And we cleaned up after ourselves. You see, we were trying to show our young that we could be respectful and respectable.

The leftist media Always tried to portray the Tea party members as racist, violent, old, stupid, and hateful. They were none of those. They were average mericans of all ages.

The left reacted to all that Pro-American sentiment the way they always do. They turned vile.

No, we have not been quiet about Obama’s failures. It has been the leftist, Obama supporting media that has.

Yep, That’s Exactly What They Do…

… They accuse their opponents of just what they’re doing. They lie so they say their opponents lie. They mock Republicans so they accuse Republicans of mocking them. They collude with Russians to gain an advantage over their political opponents so they accuse the GOP of colluding with Russians. It’s finally coming out. And it’s Russians who are spilling the beans.

All this effort, together with country-wide vote fraud and they spent far more money on campaigns than Republicans did – and they still lost. And they continue to lose.

Here are a couple of stories that popped up this morning. First, the ‘Trump ‘Golden Shower’ Dossier’:

“Democrats intentionally used disinformation from Russia to attack Trump, campaign aides”

Kaine, Schiff

While the mainstream news media hunts for evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, the public record shows that Democrats have willfully used Moscow disinformation to influence the presidential election against Donald Trump and attack his administration.

The disinformation came in the form of a Russian-fed dossier written by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. It contains a series of unverified criminal charges against Mr. Trump’s campaign aides, such as coordinating Moscow’s hacking of Democratic Party computers.

Some Democrats have widely circulated the discredited information. Mr. Steele was paid by the Democrat-funded opposition research firm Fusion GPS with money from a Hillary Clinton backer. Fusion GPS distributed the dossier among Democrats and journalists. The information fell into the hands of the FBI, which used it in part to investigate Mr. Trump’s campaign aides.

Mr. Steele makes clear that his unproven charges came almost exclusively from sources linked to the Kremlin and Russian President Vladimir Putin.”

One wonders if Mr. Steele did, actually, get the info from the Russians or if he made it all up.

Then there is this:

“Russian Lawyer: Obama TRIED TO SET UP Donald Trump Jr.”

Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Just when the Russian collusion story was dying, suddenly we get knowledge of the Donald Trump Jr meeting with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya.

The media declared, “He should have TOLD US!

As we’ve seen, the story holds no merit, then we get the latest revelations. No surprise that the New York Times lied about the connection of the Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya to the Kremlin. Next, Donald Trump Jr. released emails proving that his key motivation for the meeting was to discuss Russian adoptions in the US.”

First, the media wants to be informed about everything that is done by anyone connected to Donald Trump – for all time. They are not entitled to that. They have shown that they willAlways use information against him. Second, the meeting was a setup.

Second, Donald Jr. went to a meeting allegedly about adoptions and found that the meeting was a sham. He should have been suspicious because it was a blatantly false meeting. I suspect he will learn from this and act differently in the future. Regardless, now the Democrats are trying to use that sham meeting as evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians when it was Democrats who actually colluded.

Cruz Has The Right Answer

“Ted Cruz: if GOP can’t pass health care bill, then we need CLEAN REPEAL”

Republicans are looking at the prospect of failure of the GOP health care bill in the Senate, and Ted Cruz for one says if that happens, they need to seek a clean repeal.”

He is trying to leave the option open for the Congress to design a replacement, even if it takes a year or two. I say just repeal it. Ask yourself. What was wrong with American health care before the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, was enacted? There were a few problems. For instance, health insurance was more expensive in some states than in others. That could be fixed by deleting the requirement that Americans buy only in the state where they live.

Obamacare made buying health insurance much more difficult, much more expensive, and it reduced coverage by dramatically increasing deductibles. I have friends in Arizona who have seen their Obamacare insurance premiums more than double in one year.

Admittedly, Obamacare was designed to fail. Democrats believed they could hold power long enough to convert the failing act to single-payer universal health care like what exists in Britain. Unfortunately for them, but fortunately for the country, they did not hold power. American voters rejected them and their big government pipe dreams.

The right way to handle Obamacare is to repeal it. Period. Afterwards the Congress and the states can fix the few problems that existed like buying across state lines. The insurance companies can issue policies without being forced to cover pre-existing conditions or having to follow the silly, destructive rules that were written into the ACA.

Confused Leftist Warns Americans About Patriotism

Mr. Obama has taken his family on a looong vacation since he left office. They have travelled to many places and seen many things. None of the places they visited were in the United States.

“Obama warns Americans about too much patriotism — on July 4th weekend!”

The former US president said some countries had adopted “an aggressive kind of nationalism” and “increased resentment of minority groups”, in a speech in Indonesia on Saturday that could be seen as a commentary on the US as well as Indonesia.”

Surprise! Susan Rice Plays The Race Card

Also a surprise, she doesn’t take the time to explain why John Brennan, a white man, got the same treatment.

“Susan Rice suggests race, gender bias linked to ‘unmasking’ backlash”

In an interview with journalist Michael Tomasky for New York Magazine, Rice reportedly questioned the criticism she’s faced dating back to the Benghazi controversy.

“Why me? Why not Jay Carney, for example, who was then our press secretary, who stood up more?” she asked.

Tomasky noted in the piece that Carney “isn’t an African-American woman, of course” and apparently asked Rice whether that is the key factor. Rice, in response, left the door open:

“I don’t know… I do not leap to the simple explanation that it’s only about race and gender. I’m trying to keep my theories to myself until I’m ready to come out with them. It’s not because I don’t have any.”

“‘Deep State’ Leaks Secret U.S. Cyber Weapon To Undermine Trump’s Russia Options”

The first thing to be said about the latest leak about a U.S. anti-Russia Cyber Weapon through the always-compliant Washington Post is that, if it’s true, its authors from inside the U.S. government have once again egregiously violated their security oaths and endangered their country.

Leaking national secrets has become such a cottage industry that the obvious question is, Who needs the Russians?

In the case of the latest leak, the ultimate topic is cyber tools that Obama reportedly ordered planted in Russia’s infrastructure, to enable the U.S. to escalate a cyber-war against Moscow if he or the next president deemed that necessary.”

It’s A Good Question – And The Answer Is Simple

Obama didn’t take action because he thought Hillary Clinton was going to win the Presidency. He didn’t want a cloud over her administration. If he made it known that the Russians were trying to influence the election many would wonder if they managed to get her elected.

What Is The Difference Between Socialism And Democratic Socialism?

Nothing. It’s a sophistry designed by supporters of Bernie Sanders to allow them to lie to and through the media to other Americans. It’s designed to make everyone think that Sanders and his supporters do not support the violence against others that is the hallmark of Socialism.

As we see today Socialism is a mental disorder. A man from Illinois who believed in Socialism and its natural violence traveled a thousand miles to attempt to kill people who are not Socialists. He was a great fan of Democratic Socialist Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

I blame many on the left for creating the monster who perpetrated this attack. I blame Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama. Obama especially, because he fostered the divide between Americans. He did this between whites and people of color. He did it between the left and the right. When leftists rioted, damaged property, and hurt people he sent people from his Justice Department to train the rioters. I blame those who have called for violence; people like Louis Farrakhan, leaders of the New Black Panthers, University teachers and administration who taught our young people to hate, to be angry, and to act out violently. I blame those who gave in to the childish demands of studens and further emboldened them.

I blame many, many in media who have quoted the violent, race-charged rhetoric of the far left, silenced people who thought otherwise, highlighted regular Americans who acted in self defense, calling the murderers, and refused to cover people from the left who acted violently. I blame apologists who refuse to see violence for what it is and who imagine violence where there is none.

House Intelligence Chair Says More Obama Appointees To Be Subpoenaed

“Devin Nunes on Unmasking: ‘Oh, This Is Only the Beginning’”

Devin Nunes

Asked if there are other Obama officials besides Brennan, Rice, and Power, Nunes responded, “So these individuals that we named are the ones we have particular interest in, but I can say that those are not the only ones we have interest in.”
Nunes provided the big picture as well as a suggestion of tension. “But look, we want to work with the intelligence agencies. We didn’t want to have to subpoena, but the process was moving way too slowly. So we picked these three individuals whom we have a particular interest in, and hopefully they [the agencies] are expedient. That they have till next week to give us the unmaskings that these three individuals have done. I think they know now that we are serious.”
Nunes expanded on the possibility of an “abuse of power” in the data. “The big problem here is that the people that run these programs are protecting the United States, protecting U.S. citizens from terrorist attacks, from other adversaries that we have around the globe, and we have to protect American citizens from being picked up in these types of foreign intelligence collections.”

[…]

Asked if more former Obama officials beyond these three names are suspected of excessive unmaskings, Nunes was frank: “Oh, this is only the beginning. There are many more officials that we have concerns about abusing the intelligence programs.”
The subpoenas call for the information to be delivered by Wednesday, June 7, 2017.”

That is today.

Russian President Putin Told The World That Russia Did Not Hack 2016 Election

The whole idea that Russia interfered in the election, ensuring Clinton’s defeat, was dreamed up by Clinton supporters. There is no evidence that Russians did. It’s all just talk. Even though there’s no evidence they are also trying to say that Trump colluded with the Russians. There’s no evidence of that either.

It’s an effort to say that Trump stole the Presidency from Hillary Clinton. There is no evidence of that, either.

Someone thought to ask Vladimir Putin about it. He said that Russia didn’t do it. But that’s not good enough.

On Sunday Susan Rice, a demonstrated serial liar – she’s the one who went on Sunday talk programs and blamed the attack in Benghazi, Libya on a You Tube video – went on the air and called Putin a liar. She has no evidence of that either. I would be careful about defaming Vladimir Putin.

“Putin ‘is lying’ by denying Russian interference in US election, Susan Rice says”

Former national security adviser under President Obama, Susan Rice, said Russian President Vladimir Putin “is lying” by denying Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Rice in an exclusive interview on “This Week” Sunday was asked by ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos about Putin’s recent statement that the Russian government didn’t meddle in the U.S. election although patriotic Russians might have done so.

“Is that as close to an admission of guilt we’re going to get form President Putin?” Stephanopoulos said.

“I don’t know what we’ll hear from President Putin, George. But frankly, he’s lying,” Rice said. “

“Taxpayer Dollars Up, Non-Abortion Services Down at Planned Parenthood”

More than half a billion of our dollars went to fund abortion services at Planned Parenthood.

“Taxpayers gave nation’s largest abortion provider $554 million in 2015-2016”

Planned Parenthood continues to increase its haul of taxpayer dollars despite its chain of clinics experiencing steep declines in patients and non-abortion services while abortions remained stable.

Cancer screenings have plummeted by 50 percent over the past five years, according to Planned Parenthood’s 2015-2016 report. The 665,234 services performed at its 650 clinics represented a 50 percent drop from 1.3 million recorded in 2011-2012.”

Breaking – WSJ: “House Intelligence Panel Issues Seven Subpoenas in Russia Probe”

“Four are related to Russia investigation, three to ‘unmasking’ controversy, individuals say”

The committee has subpoenaed the National Security Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency for information about what is called “unmasking.” Republicans on the committee have been pushing for a thorough investigation of how the names of Trump campaign officials became exposed in classified intelligence reports based off intelligence community intercepts.

Those subpoenas seek information on requests made by former national security adviser Susan Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan and former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power for names to be unmasked in classified material. The three didn’t personally receive subpoenas, the people familiar with the matte said. Mr. Brennan, Ms. Rice and Ms. Power didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

Ms. Power hasn’t previously been reported as a potential witness in the probe so her inclusion in the subpoenas may mean Republicans are broadening their areas of investigation.”

Leftists Are Projecting Again

In an earlier post we illustrated how leftists try to shift blame from themselves to others. Today there is a good example of that on a national scale. Democrats under Barack Obama tried to hack the 2016 Presidential election and failed. Their candidate lost so they, naturally, blame the loss on someone, the Russians colluding with the winner, for hacking the election. It’s a perfect example of them projecting.

This is from the New York Post:

“How Team Obama tried to hack the election”

New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials.

[…]

The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans.

Thanks to Circa News, we now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated privacy protections while snooping through foreign intercepts involving US citizens — and failed to disclose the breaches, prompting the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court a month before the election to rebuke administration officials.

[…]

In short, Brennan politicized raw intelligence. In fact, he politicized the entire CIA.

[…]

Brennan isn’t just a Democrat. He’s a radical leftist who in 1980 — during the height of the Cold War — voted for a Communist Party candidate for president.

When Brennan rants about the dangers of strongman Vladimir Putin targeting our elections and subverting our democratic process, does he not catch at least a glimpse of his own reflection?

What he and the rest of the Obama gang did has inflicted more damage on the integrity of our electoral process than anything the Russians have done.”

WSJ’s Strassel Tells About The ‘Deep State’

In an article in today’s Wall Street Journal Kimberley Strassel has a column titled, ‘Anatomy of a Deep State’. In it she explains the mechanisms installed under Obama to frustrate and undermine any future President’s actions. It is being used now against Donald Trump.

“The EPA’s ‘Science Integrity Official’ is plotting to undermine Trump’s agenda.”

On May 8 a woman few Americans have heard of, working in a federal post that even fewer know exists, summoned a select group of 45 people to a June meeting in Washington. They were almost exclusively representatives of liberal activist groups. The invitation explained they were invited to develop “future plans for scientific integrity” at the Environmental Protection Agency.

Meet the deep state. That’s what conservatives call it now, though it goes by other names. The administrative state. The entrenched governing elite. Lois Lerner. The federal bureaucracy. Whatever the description, what’s pertinent to today’s Washington is that this cadre of federal employees, accountable to no one, is actively working from within to thwart Donald Trump’s agenda.

[…]

In 2013 the EPA hired Francesca Grifo, longtime activist at the far-left Union of Concerned Scientists. Ms. Grifo had long complained that EPA scientists were “under siege”—according to a report she helped write—by Republican “political appointees” and “industry lobbyists” who had “manipulated” science on everything from “mercury pollution to groundwater contamination to climate science.”

As Scientific Integrity Official, Ms. Grifo would have the awesome power to root out all these meddlesome science deniers.

[…]

And get this: “Her job is not a political appointment,” the Science article continues, “so it comes with civil service protections.” Here was a bureaucrat with the authority to define science and shut down those who disagreed, and she could not be easily fired, even under a new administration.

[…]

There’s also that “scientific integrity” event planned for June. Of the 45 invitations, only one went to an organization ostensibly representing industry, the American Chemistry Council. A couple of academics got one. The rest? Earthjustice. Public Citizen. The Natural Resources Defense Council. Center for Progressive Reform. Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility. Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. Environmental Defense Fund. Three invites alone for the Union of Concerned Scientists. Anyone want to guess how the meeting will go?”

John Brennan Is Talking To Congress But Is He Telling The Truth?

This morning there are a lot of reports about the Brennan testimony. For instance:
“John Brennan Completely Contradicts FBI Director James Comey on Congressional Notification…”

The story goes like this:

Today former CIA Director John Brennan testified to congress on the Russian counter-intelligence operation which began in July 2016. Today, John Brennan completely contradicted the March 20th, 2017, testimony of former FBI Director James Comey.

[…]

On March 20th FBI Director James Comey -together with NSA head Admiral Mike Rogers- testified to congress specifically about this notification…

[…]

“Again, in consultation with the White House, I PERSONALLY briefed the full details of our understanding of Russian attempts to interfere in the election to congressional leadership; specifically: Senators Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, Dianne Feinstein and Richard Burr; and to representatives Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Devin Nunes and Adam Schiff between 11th August and 6th September [2016], I provided the same briefing to each of the gang of eight members.”

Then there is this. It was not collusion between Trump and Putin that got Russia involved in the election:

“John Brennan: Hostility between Putin, Clintons drove Russia’s actions”

We don’t know if Brennan is telling the truth but the Democrats seem to believe him.

“Key Democratic Officials Now Warning Base Not to Expect Evidence of Trump/Russia Collusion”

But on Wednesday night, Morell appeared at an intelligence community forum to “cast doubt” on “allegations that members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.” “On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke, but there is no fire at all,” he said, adding, “There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark. And there’s a lot of people looking for it.”

Obama’s former CIA chief also cast serious doubt on the credibility of the infamous, explosive “dossier” originally published by BuzzFeed, saying that its author, Christopher Steele, paid intermediaries to talk to the sources for it. The dossier, he said, “doesn’t take you anywhere, I don’t think.”

And That Is How You Drain The Swamp

“Clapper: Trump is Assaulting American Institutions”

The complicit media is hauling out the same Obama people who repeatedly told us lies during the eight years of BHO. They are supporting their allegations of impropriety because they are all on the same team – the team that wants to take out President Trump.

This interview could be called a ‘Tapper Clapper caper’. It is easy to see that Tapper is trying to help Clapper form his comments.

Mr. Trump was elected by Americans to change the trajectory of the country. That requires a lot of things. One of those things is to eliminate the cancerous members of the government who have been there for a long time and are going to object to being kicked out. Clapper is one of those but he was in a high position under Obama and he misses the control.

In this clip he says that Trump is assaulting American Institutions – as though that were a bad thing. Of course it is to him.

Clapper is the one who told us that US intelligence does not collect surveil average Americans:

That was a lie and he had to ‘Clarify’.

Solar Panel Company Files For Bankruptcy Despite Getting Lots Of Your Money

Another Obama pipe dream fails. The government just can not make winners out of losing proposition. This time they only wasted two hundred million.

“Largest US Solar Panel Maker Files For Bankruptcy After Receiving $206 Million In Subsidies”

The ongoing price erosion and the development of the business” has left the company “over-indebted and thus obliged to file for insolvency proceedings,” SolarWorld, which is also the largest U.S. solar panel maker, said in a statement.

The filing comes after SolarWorld was forced to lay off employees earlier this year. The company employs around 3,000 people, including 800 in Hillsboro, Oregon, and was one of the few German-based solar companies to survive a recent market downturn.

SolarWorld is only the latest bankrupt solar company to blame the Chinese. U.S.-based Suniva Inc. filed for bankruptcy in April, also citing stiff competition from Chinese solar panel makers.”

That’s How Losers Talk

After losing the White House to Republicans as well as both houses of Congress and many more state offices it is fair to say that Americans have rejected the politics of division presented by the Democrats. That party was led to these losses by President Barack Obama. Today he has no authority left and his actions as President are being systematically dismantled – including his signature health plan, the Affordable Care Act, normally called ‘Obamacare’.

How did he accomplish this disaffection? Why did American voters turn against him and his Democrats? We were sick and tired of being lied to by people who were, time after time, shown to be lying. We were also tired of hearing how evil our country and ourselves were.

Because Obama has lost so much authority in American politics all he can do is stand up and yell rants at us that he reads off the ‘prompter’. As a result his rants aren’t hardly being covered by the formerly sycophantic news media. They can see what his unimportance. It affects them just as it does us.

“Obama Says It Takes ‘Political Courage’ To Leave Obamacare In Place.”

True political courage lies in telling people what they may not want to hear, but must learn. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), for example, performed an act of political courage when he ran for the presidency in Iowa by telling Iowans that he would not support subsidies for the ethanol boondoggle; it was an act of political cowardice that led Donald Trump to embrace such subsidies, then rip Cruz as someone heartless. Courage is about saying the unpopular but true thing. Upholding Obamacare — shouting from the rooftops about a “right” to healthcare while premiums skyrocket, insurers drop out, and you continue shouting to soak the rich – is political cowardice.”

Ted Cruz Demands To Know Why Huma Abedin Was Not Prosecuted

He points out that she Did Break the law and cites two instances.

Sen. Ted Cruz called out FBI Director James Comey for the director’s decision that Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin would walk because there was no intent on their part to break the law by their mishandling of classified information.

During Comey’s May 3 appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Cruz said:

You described the reason why the case was closed against Ms. Abedin as that you could not determine she was aware her conduct was unlawful. … Any first year law student learns in criminal law ignorance of the law is no excuse, and that mens rea does not require knowledge that conduct is unlawful.”

Cruz continued: “The governing statutes – 18 USC 793f and 18 USC 798a – have no requirement of a knowledge of unlawful [intent]…under the terms of that statute, the fact pattern you described in this hearing [of Abedin’s behavior] seems to fit that statute directly. In that, if I understood you correctly, you said Ms. Abedin forwarded hundreds or thousands of classified emails to her husband on a non-government, non-classified computer.”

“How does that conduct not directly violate that statute?” Cruz asked.”

Why Is CNN Admitting That Democrats Lied To Pass Obamacare?

This is a complete reversal for both Tapper and Blitzer but mostly for CNN. They went out of their way in the past to protect Obama and the rest of the Democrats. Now they are pointing out – on air – that they lied to us many times. Remember, too, it was Obama who told us repeatedly that you could keep your doctor and you could keep your coverage.

Why the reversal?

One thing is interesting to note. The new GOP plan is not in effect yet. The Senate has not ratified it and it lacks a Presidential signature. Obamacare is still the law of the land. But Obamacare has failed. Is it possible that the CNN crew are trying to take advantage of this current situation to pass single-payer?

Whatever it is there is a reason for this reversal.

CNN Highlights How Democrats Lied to Americans to Sell Obamacare

Jake Tapper points out that Democrats said people could keep their doctors. He also pointed to skyrocketing health insurance premiums as a broken promise by Democrats.

[…]

“The way that [Obamacare] was sold to the American people was in many ways mendacious,” Tapper told Israel.

Tapper then proceeded to point out all the lies that Democrats told the American people.

“They were told if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor, if you like you plan you can keep your plan. That’s not true.”

Tapper then mentioned to Israel that a majority of health insurance providers have already pulled out of the Obamacare exchanges, meaning that Americans have fewer options now than before the law.

“Do you think the Democrats in the way they sold this bill to the public really undermined their own credibility on the issue of health care?” Tapper asked Israel.”

Second, Democrats claim to be upset that Russia may have interfered in the US Presidential election but they have no problem with Obama interfering in France’s.
