If you like your health insurance you can keep it

Throughout the healthcare debate there has been one constant statement by the President, “if you like your health insurance you can keep it”, but that is not true. Now the question is did the president know this statment was not true as he repeated it over and over again? Some are saying the administration did know this statement was not true in every scenario. So if you knowingly repeat something that is sketchy or untrue are you a lying? Yes, you are, but was the president attempting to knowingly deceive us or was he selling the program a little too hard? I regrettably have to conclude this was a lie and that does not sit well with someone who has supported this president out the gate. The Affordable Healthcare Act is a great law in theory but the reality has not been good so far. Hopefully it will get better and heopefully we will not be over sold. Tell the truth expose the flaws. You can’t fix what you do not acknowledge and this system needs a whole lot of fixing.

    The saddest thing about your disappointment is that this president has displayed countless signs of his dishonesty that you and millions others were so emotionally invested in him that you just refused to recognize them. There is an aphorism that says “In great matters we show ourselves as we wish to be seen; in small matters we show ourselves as we are”. Here’s an example. Early during his first term the president was queried by a reporter about fulfilling his promise to his daughters to get a dog for them after the election. The president jocularly replied to the reporter “ah that was just a campaign promise”. Unfortunately, many will dismiss such a comment as just a joke. Yes, he was making a joke. Where I might differ with others is that I believed this was a glimpse into his psyche of how insincere he is about fulfilling promises.

    There is no question and there is hard printed evidence that the president knew that what he promised was impossible to occur. There is even proof that discussions occurred in the White House about whether or not the president should have been candid. He chose to deceive the American people.

    As if that was not bad enough, on November 4 after coming under fire for repeatedly lying to America he goes before a group of supporters and stated that he told us that some health insurance may be subject to cancellation. Is this the behavior of a psychopath or what?
