Lies and more lies

November 19, 2013

When one tells a falsehood, it can sometimes be overlooked or forgiven, but when one tells the same falsehood over and over to deliberately deceive others, then that person is an out and out lier....

Excellent letter Galen. Let's hope Americans are able to see how they were deceived and not be so narrow minded and blindly support these congressional leaders that chose to put party politics ahead of integrity. Americans had a right to know the truth about this legislation. Americans got about as much transparency as they did hope and change.

Here is something for the lying liberals to ponder:

If the ACA stands unchanged, President Obama's lie will end up costing taxpayers far, far more than the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan combined.

Even the President's most recent decision to allow healthcare insurance companies to issue new lower cost policies that don't meet the minimum coverage requirements of ACA for a year were done without meeting with the various state insurance regulators and insurance companies to determine if his solution was even viable for the citizens. He throws out an option as the 'solution' without even consulting with the appropriate groups that it impacts to know if it is even practical and will work.

He doesn't even care if it will work; he purely wants to use it as a smoke screen to be able to say 'I share your pain; I did something about'. Mr President, it is a year late and a trillion short.

Remember - we had to pass it to find out what's in it, said Mrs. Pelosi 4 years ago. I read a comment online the other day that said that sentence was actually a good description of a stool sample.

I do not believe the President lied. I think that this is what he intended, no mistake about it. I don't think he can understand why everybody is angry. Make no mistake, he knew, this is what he wants. Our country is in trouble with this kind of thinking from the President.

How could any Democrat with a lick of common sense dispute this letter? How can they continue to justify Obama's actions? Great letter Galen.

There are really only three scenarios that can explain the deception played on the American people. Either the President and Congressional Democrats blatantly lied in order to gain support for this legislation, or they all were so inept that none of them understood the legislation they passed and the effects it would have. But personally I think they rammed it through without knowing what the impact would be and then once they actually looked at and understood what they passed, they attempted to cover it up with deception. And you have to admit, this is not the first time this tactic has been used with this administration.

Cap, I'll take door number 2. Inept

After all they did elect a community organizer and junior senator thinking he was our savior. Yes inept is the scenario I'll stick with.

Where are Sham and Chucky this morning here to defend their beloved leader? Or did they understand that he lied not once, but more than 30 times to the people to try to get them to buy into his ACA disaster. Probably not, I'm sure there is some simple explanation of why we misunderstood what the leader was trying to say. Now the sticker shock, failed web site and low sign-up rate is proving to be the failure that we predicted years ago. The best part is that NBC reported that O actually knew in 2010, as well as the Dems that people would not be allowed to keep their insurance and it was going to cost way more than anticipated, but they hid behind their campaigner in chief. Now we are left to deal with this disaster and it is hitting our wallet. Pathetic

"I think they rammed it through without knowing what the impact would be"-Cap

That's not what Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D) NY said. She went on the news shows on Sunday and insisted that "everyone knew". Her defense of the lies was basically that it was the only way the people would accept Communism. Those weren't the words she used but the concept was certainly there. They knew and they lied because they knew. I'm sure there are some exceptions who are too stupid to understand everything and just vote the way Reid and Pelosi tell them, but for most it was intentional. Either way we don't need a bunch of liars and idiots trying to run our lives. Everyone who voted for this monstrosity needs to go.

"Lies and more lies"

He was probably brought up being told to be the best at what you are good at, he's doing it. Remember, he said he was going to fundamentally change the USA, no lie there. I also wonder how Pelosi can even be in office, she is truly scary, just listen to her.

If Shaman appears he will no doubt use deflection and resort to bringing up Bush, the Iraq war and the tea party. Neither him nor Chuck would dare admit any wrong doing by this administration. They are followers to the end.

Remember leaning, the witch is from San Francisco and most of em are wackos, just like the 70 some percent that voted for a socialist communist to be mayor of New York City.

Every one of these democrats knew exactly what they were creating, thats why they made sure they don't have to be subjected to it!

I think Chuck and Sham-Wow might know now that their emperor has no clothes. And I bet that they will be far less active on this site going forward. Hopefully, they have finally seen that they have been making fools of themselves defending this president and this Democrat party. And again, hopefully they have finally understood that what the Right has been saying about this president all along was far truer than what the president himself has been telling us. If they continue to shill for this president, I myself will feel sorry for them.

No problem lying when the end justifies the means. The end being complete government control. The appearance of "accidental" failure and ineptness is part of the plan. "Failure" of the ACA will justify government sponsored healthcare. Which, has been their plan from the beginning. They are neither inept or stupid.

I wrote to Sen. Casey about all this and have yet to hear from him. Maybe since I didn't vote for him he will not respond. I know he represents ALL the people in PA, doesn't he; or maybe just Harrisburg, Philly, Pittsburgh, and Erie.

No republican ever tells a lie.

Amazing how much a steady diet of lies that the rights lives on. The right wing is headed for a big fall.

This was never supposed to work. It's just another "plank" in the party's demolition of the United States. When I hear about impeachment all I hear is the country will not approve of it. WHAT ABOUT THE LAW!!! Justice is not a popularity contest; well, at least it wasn't at one time.
