The Selling Of ObamaCare: Exposing The Lies and Deception

Last year, ObamaCare and it's individual mandate were rolled out. As a result, (the President's lies that you could keep your doctor, and your insurance, and the average family would save $2500 a year) were clearly exposed.

In June 2010, the Obama Administration also made a quiet entry into the Federal Register, saying that it was projected that 93 million Americans would have their current insurance policies cancelled as a result of ObamaCare.  Yet, past that date, the President continued to claim you could keep your present doctor.

Then, this year, one of the architects, Ezekiel Emanuel, wrote a book titled: "Reinventing American Health Care: How the Affordable Care Act Will Improve Our Terribly Complex, Blatantly Unjust, Outrageously Expensive, Grossly Inefficient, Error Prone System".  In it, he clearly states that the ObamaCare law will cause two-thirds of the current employer-offered insurance policies to just go away.  Apparently, from his words, this was intentional.  Thus, adding to the deception that "if you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance".

But, more than anything, the words of another ObamaCare architect, Jonathan Gruber, tell of the deceit  used to get ObamaCare passed into law:
"This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure [the Congressional Budget Office] did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. OK? So it's written to do that. In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said healthy people are going to pay in — you made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money — it would not have passed. OK? Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get the thing to pass. Look, I wish ... we could make it all transparent, but I'd rather have this law than not."
Essentially, he is saying they intentionally deceived the CBO.  Further, he bragged about how they used the lack of transparency to fool the stupid American voters.

But, Gruber also said this about two years ago:
"What’s important to remember politically about this is if you're a state and you don’t set up an exchange, that means your citizens don't get their tax credits—but your citizens still pay the taxes that support this bill. So you’re essentially saying [to] your citizens you’re going to pay all the taxes to help all the other states in the country. I hope that that's a blatant enough political reality that states will get their act together and realize there are billions of dollars at stake here in setting up these exchanges. But, you know, once again the politics can get ugly around this."
The reason that these words are important is because in court case after court case, the Justice Department has argued the it was never the intent not to provide subsidies to states who didn't set up their own exchanges.  Well, Gruber clearly shows that to be a lie.  Now, the Supreme Court will hear the "subsidies" argument and one has to wonder how much of their decision will be based on Gruber's comments.

When Nancy Pelosi said "we have to pass the health care bill so that you can find out what's in it", she clearly was admitting that the truth was being hidden from the American public.  After all, it was crafted behind closed doors with the exclusion of any Republicans.  Then, the near 3,000 page document was put to a vote before anyone could read it, let alone debate it.

If a corporation had lied this much to its customers, it would have been sued out of existence.  But, the Democrats lied to the American people and only a few have been punished by losing their seats in Congress.  As of  January 2014, there will still be 44 Democrats in the Senate and 184 in the House of Representatives who will not have been punished for the deception and lies of their party and their President leading up to the passage of the Affordable Care Act.

Jonathan Gruber recently said Obamacare only passed due to the "stupidity" of the American voter and a lack of "transparency," and video footage of his remarks was deleted from the internet:
