The spectacle of a prime time address on healthcare shown on national television as a stage for Obama. He could lie as often as he wanted and knows the media will never challenge him. He knows that even if he slips and says something outrageous they will actually cover for him.
South Carolina Representative stood up and spoke truth to power "You Lie!". I think everyone knows that illegal immigrants will be given ObamaCare without being forced to pay the "individual mandate". (That means being forced to buy health insurance).
While Obama has said that we can save money by not spending wildly to treat incurable problems or giving 99 year olds hip replacements, everyone knows the government will fully cover AIDS treatment. There's no cure for it, everyone who contracts it is doomed to die. Yet that will be covered. That is political.
Everyone knows the Public Option comes with a law to ban private insurance companies from writing new individual policies after around 2013. That is some kind of "competition" when the other guys can no longer compete under the law. It is nothing like car insurance, that is another lie, no one is forced to own a car. Car insurance varies wildly by state, not mandated by the feds.
The idea of the "co-ops" is a sham from the start. An organization that is run from the top-down and its board appointed by the President is not a co-op by any stretch of the imagination. It doesn't come anywhere near meeting the definition.
The biggest lie thrown out by the left is that we can cover tens of millions more people and save money. Save money? Are we somehow going to be spending less money on far more people. How is that even possible?
The answer is called "rationing". Some people will be denied healthcare, there will be waiting lists that cause some to die waiting and some will be helped to die, whether they like it or not. This is how it always works, always, when government healthcare systems need to save money.
Joe Wilson is correct. Barack Obama and his minions in Congress and the media are liars. Full-on liars in overdrive.
