    “Because I really liked having a policy that cost $5 a year with a $250000 deductible.
    Not that I ever had to USE it. I’m never going to get ill.”

    (yeah, right.)

    As the New York Times pointed out, not one single policy was cancelled because of the ACA, they were just upgraded. Of course, one of their freelance staff writers was allowed to write a piece complaining that, though 46, she has to pay an extra $5,400 for maternity coverage, but all the official Times commentators told her she was just whining, when the ACA was really great for her.

    It is too bad that lies do not have consequences in politics. If they did, 3/4 of all politicians serving in state and national positions would be banished from politics. Truth is just one of many things from which career politicians protect themselves. Mr. Obama’s ‘lie’ is just the latest of the daily stream of falsehoods, fear mongering, and divisiveness our elected officials use to manipulate us and keep themselves in power.
    It is my understanding that the only people actually losing their doctor/healthcare plan are people whose plans are, frankly, inadequate. I’ve heard and read many stories of people who, once they found out what their plans didn’t cover, were shocked and WANTED to change.
    That said…
    There are still people who don’t want to have to pay for things they know they won’t use and for which they don’t want to share in the costs and Mr. Obama should have anticipated that and qualified his statement appropriately.
    As lies go, however…
    There have been many many more that were much worse over our history. And it is too bad that the liars are protected from their deliberate efforts to mislead the American people.
    Respectfully,

    Would have Obama been re elected if he had not flat out LIED! I don’t think so! And how about the cancer patients? Just do not speak of Obamacare you might get audited!

    .
    so? But when caught in an out right lie should not something be done? The best I can do is speak out and speak out against those who make excuses for Obamacare. You are what is wrong! oh they all do it blah blah!@ I say bully! They should not and when caught in such a blatant provable LIE then those who still support and make excuses should be held just as responsible!
    “It is my understanding that the only people actually losing their doctor/healthcare plan are people whose plans are, frankly, inadequate.”
    So now you and Obama are insurance agents and doctors and the rest of us are just morons who do not know what is best for us? Thanks but no thanks! i used to be able to find what I wanted on the free market with out mommy government looking over my shoulder and telling me to eat my peas because It was good for me! And if this was true then why are we still here 4 years later still debating it? oh because Obama LIED! He changed the rules and LIED about it to get reelected! "
    “Mr. Obama should have anticipated that and qualified his statement appropriately.”
    ..
    But he did not! if he did he would not have been re elected. it is that simple! He KNEW it was a LIE! He on purpose did not add a * or any other qualifier, to do so would have given the other side a bit of truth to use against him! The lame stream could not label un fair the other guy because they supported the LIE also!

    Interesting.

    What was your premium in $? What is it Now?
    .
    Is it the same company? What company is that?
    .
    What was your deductible? What is it now?
    .
    Thank you.

    It is amazing how some government workers have to get up early and post “the party line”… I guess they will change user names next year when the reality hits the fan.

    I think he would have been re-elected regardless. There are still enough brainwashed zero information voters and socialist losers willing to vote for him, no matter how big the lie, because they get to hear about all the wonderful things that will happen in the future if re-elected. If Obama could run for a third term, he would still win. In their extremely limited capacity brains, Obama never told any lies.

    You must be on the Obama’s Chicago Machine Plan. That’s the one where you get kickbacks under the table behind closed doors when nobody is looking because you are willing to do favors, such as grease the wheels, redirect anger, fluff the media, make new excuses, and so on. Don’t worry, you are not alone. There is an entire city full of worshipers like you.

    I have to give credit where credit is due. Obama worked really hard for that award. What an achievement. No other president has ever been able to do that.

    But your experience is trumped by the anecdotes of people who say they got better policies for less. They’re obviously truthier than you. And the Kool-Aid is still strong.
