ObamaLiesHere is an interesting post from the WhiteHouse.gov website, a press release dated 9/22/13. It’s a transcript of Obama’s remarks at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Phoenix Awards Dinner.

In particular: “…You can offer your family the security of health care … for less than your cell phone bill. That’s what change looks like.” (Applause).

(If you’re a masochist and want to watch the video clip, here it is.)

For the record, the average cell phone bill was $71 a month in 2012. That Obamacare sure sounds like a sweet deal!

Fast-forward 6 months to a town hall meeting with Spanish-language media. This is the part you’ve been hearing about recently (see YouTube clip). Obama is asked how a family with $36,000 in income can afford $315 a month for the cheapest Obamacare premium. His answer: “…if you looked at their cable bill, their telephone, their cell phone bill… it may turn out that, it’s just they haven’t prioritized health care.”

One day Obamacare is cheaper than a cell phone; the next day we’re told to give up cell phones to pay a small portion of the Obamacare bill. Riiight.

This endless and utter disconnect between our president’s words and the real world destroys the ideal of government integrity. How can the people believe in a government whose leaders won’t (or can’t) stop lying to them?

    Depends on your definition of integrity.

    His, and his supporters’, definition of integrity is different. You qualify for a free Obamaphone with free minutes if you are on food stamps or MEDICAID. So can’t afford health premiums, sign up for medicaid and then free phone, and save lots of money. What a deal! Health ins., free communication, money in your pocket, you don’t have to thank me as humility may be my greatest character trait, vote Democrat. That circle is his definition of integrity. He doesn’t care if we don’t believe in government, as long as he can make his circle bigger than us.

    Speaking of the word “integrity” – it would never enter my mind to have someone else, much less the government “provide” for me: food, shelter, phone, healthcare, ad infinitum. That’s the way my parents raised me and the way I raised my children. My head wants to explode as I drive down the street and almost weekly see the “Free (Obama) Phones” tent. I’m sorry to say it, these people are stupid. You voted for a man to give you free stuff and in the end lost your freedom and mine along with yours.
    Obama, the ultimate bait and switch con man.

    “…The insurance official, who hails from a populous swing state, said his company expects to triple its rates next year on the ObamaCare exchange….”

    NRO column on new HHS proposed Ocare regulations. Describes how Ocare excepts, for the most part, indemnity health ins., but the new proposed regs. will do away with that exception, contrary to the law. This really is a crime.
