The Lying King

Remember that scene in Scarface where Sosa says to Tony Montana:

I like you, Tony. There is no lying in you.

Unfortunately, I do not feel the same about the rest of your organization.

Sosa would have never uttered those words to Obama. Because Sosa would have seen Obama as a liar.

Lets look at Obama's lies about Health Care.

The link below is the Teleprompter Man on the 2008 campaign trail. Watch him tell the assembled sheep how horrible John McCain's health care plan is because of the way its funded. Watch him mesmerize the Kool Aid drinkers by hammering away saying how horrible it would be to fund health care reform by cutting Medicare and taxing existing health care plans.

But look at the Senate bill that Obama supports, sports fans. How is it paid for? By cuts in Medicare & taxes on existing health plans!

The next lie Obama told the people is the following:

So let me begin by saying this: I know that there are millions of Americans who are content with their health care coverage - they like their plan and they value their relationship with their doctor. And that means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.

Here's the skinny on Obama's promise: above: he has broken it. Millions of Americans won't be able to keep their existing health plans. Here's why: (1) under the Senate bill, restrictions in Health Care Flexible Spending Accounts will cause people to pay thousands of dollars more in taxes which, if they cannot afford, will force them to choose another plan; and (2) certain so-called "Cadillac Plans" will be taxed at a 40% rate which will force employers to offer less expense plans with less benefits.

Another lie: that illegal aliens will not be covered. The President does not believe that anyone is an illegal alien. He calls them "soon to be registered Democrats". If you ask the man about borders, he thinks you are talking about a book store. If the man is on the record for granting amnesty to illegal aliens, how can you believe him when he says illegal aliens won't be covered?

Change we can believe in, huh?
