"We All Knew" Obama Was Lying
Breitbart Big Government, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 11/18/2013 5:48:43 AM

On Sunday, appearing on ABC’s This Week with fill-in host Martha Raddatz, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) admitted that Democrats knew full well that Americans would be booted from their health insurance plans as an effect of Obamacare implementation. When asked whether Democrats were misled by President Obama about whether Americans would be able to keep their plans in the individual insurance market, Gillibrand answered: “He should’ve just been specific. No, we all knew.”

Comments:
Apparently ok for dems to lie to push their agenda.

It´s also kosher for Muslims to lie in order to attain their ends.

"He should have just been specific?"
What kind of word twisting is that? How about - he should not have lied?
Just wait a few months, when employers face the costs of kenyacare, and strip employee coverage...which will take place just before the November 2014 elections.

Since Obama refuses to work or listen to the right, then the question to the left is why was political power you desire tied to the enabling and perpetuating this lie?

Tut, tut. You lied when you knew the truth and did not speak the truth. You didn´t have to speak the lie to be part of the lie. By your knowing silence you are just as guilty and this is the worst kind of a betrayal of trust.

"We" here includes the shameless liars of the MSM, who of course not only also knew, but made sure the truth was covered-up. In my book that is called fraud, the kind of fraud that is indictable. Apparently, the GOP has decided, once again, to let the Dems and their corrupt megaphones get away with it.

No #12, Gillibrand is our "hot" Senator, handpicked by Schumer to replace Hillary. We didn´t have much of a choice when she was put on the ballot. I think the State GOP ran a dead coyote or something against her.

No, Kristen, Obama was absolutely specific. He said, "if you like your insurance, you can keep it. Period." The video is there for all to see. Obama was lying, and you perpetuated the lie to win elections. Anyone who says differently is still lying. Rep. Joe Wilson is owed an apology.

It will eventually come out that the Dems ALL knew what was really going down and that the selling of Obamacare was a pack of lies ... and they all helped cover it up. Why? Because they thought it would be acceptable as a loss. Before the battle, the General knows he will loss 20% of his troops. But in the end he will win and the enemy will be beaten. It´s a horrific loss, but acceptable --- as long as you win. That´s the Dems logic here.

Everyone has to take their medicine. If they don´t do it voluntarily then we´ll ram it down their throats. In the end everyone will love Obamacare and we win! So a little lie is no big deal. They forgot one vital thing while they were stuck in their echo chamber merrily high fiving each other. The relationship most people have with their doctor is often as close as the one they have with a beloved relative. Taking away one´s doctor, thus "killing" that relationship, will make many people more than just upset. I already despise these Dems. I´m just waiting for 51% of the country to join me.

I don´t know if the invisible Senatrix from NY is just trying to get the spotlight put on herself or if she just didn´t attend the briefing that said not to admit this but I am quite grateful for it. I am not that angry at Obama because his promises are like those of Willy Wonka. No one who is not in a kid´s movie could ever believe them. Yet, my heath insurance and that of my family were ruined by Obamacare and that happened because THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE TOO DAMN DUMB TO VOTE. Come on! Of course no one in the Senate believed his LIES! But anyone who DID believe his lies and voted for him should have his right to vote stripped. That person is just too ignorant to vote.

Attempting to listen to that woman talk is like fingernails on a chalk board-would rather listen to a jack hammer. She is trying just a wee little bit too hard to speak perfect English-every syllable enunciated to perfection. Would not shut up-auctioneer, tireless delivery. It´s just the sort of drive the Obama-incompetency deniers need. Too bad they are wasting their time. Reality is a remote concept to her.

Here is a novel idea...what can;t those people pay for the better plans that the Senator advocates for? Because of poor domestic economic policiy that the liberals have been espousing for the last 60 years.

Yes and you went right along with the lies. But not to worry, your health care is guaranteed. But other People are waking up from drinking the kool aid with a really bad hangover of lost health care plans, doctors and in some cases their very lives. The worst is yet to come because the expenses are going to have to be covered by someone and I think we all know it won´t be o´s supporters.

If the American History that I studied as a young person was anything correct (and I think it was) there was a time in this country that just about every adult was very interested in who was hold office, the candidates that were running and what their policies were, etc, That´s one reason that women fought for the right to vote (I´m not going there). How ever, over a period of time, politicians started out with little lies that grew bigger over time. And they did and still do claim that "it´s just politics. Everyone does it". The old comeback is "if everyone jumped off a cliff does that mean you have to do it"? What we have today is a political party (Dims) that will use just about any ruse for a vote. And when caught in an outright, make up some excuse about it. It´s really stomach turning to see the majority of men and women who have been elected to represent us, the people, lie to us like a drunk. And then turn around a try to convince them to be re-elected. It´s far past time to COMPLETELY drain swamp D.C.

Way before obamacare I was wondering how many senior democrats it took to shoehorn an unknown, non-citizen, doubtful college graduate, communist muslim into the White House, knowing he was flawed, unqualified and illegally running for POTUS. I also believe he took his second oath of office on the koran, which allowed him to lie. My guess is most.

Scientists believe that over the last two billion years or so, there have been as many as seventeen times that Earth has experienced an Ice Age. They suspect an Ice Age when they see shifts in geological formations that are so severe that the only explanation appears to be glaciers forming and moving large quantities of land from one part of the continent to another part. Each Ice Age is estimated to have lasted for at least 100,000 years, with some lasting millions of years. Each was eventually followed by a period of gradual warming, resulting in the glaciers melting and

One of the hallmarks of the Obama administration is that it is among the most corrupt administrations in living memory. The degree of corruption and thuggery to which many administration members have stooped would make even Boss Tweed of Tammany Hall fame blush. But what’s truly remarkable about the Obama administration is that its corruption is so unabashed. Among the most corrupt functionaries of the Obama regime is Attorney General Eric Holder, who appears to be Obama’s alter ego and enforcer. From day one he let America know that he held most of its citizens in contempt by proclaiming that the American

The back-and-forth drama on the House Oversight Committee has gotten heated over the past few months.

Issa fired off a personal letter at Cummings, claiming that he and his attorneys were frustrating the fact-finding mission of the Oversight Committee. Following revelations that Cummings’ staff was working with the IRS to get information on True the Vote, the same group Cummings tried to shame into silence through the race card, further evidence indeed suggests that Cummings was shaking down and

A bombshell revelation has brought the IRS scandal to a new level. Judicial Watch has released internal IRS communications revealing that former Tax Exempt Organizations director Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice (DOJ) regarding whether it was possible to criminally prosecute tax-exempt groups she believed had “lied” about their political activity. Judicial Watch obtained the documents by successfully filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the IRS in October 2013, following the agency’s stonewall of four FOIA requests dating back to the previous May.

During the debates surrounding the adoption of the Constitution by the several states, one commentator observed that "the government should be so small that it doesn´t matter who wins." Well, the government is no longer small, and this year, in Virginia´s Seventh Congressional District, it matters very much who wins. Republicans are not the only people in this country who are dismayed at the collapse of conviction and principle in the party’s national establishment.

The ultimate party litmus test: given a veto-proof legislature, will Republicans finally start to reduce the scope and size of government? It looks like the answer is no. In 2013, North Carolina was just one of 25 states where Republican governors were given historic opportunity to govern alongside Republican-controlled legislatures. Despite conservative voters’ best hopes, any sensible mandate to restore individual and economic freedom flew out the window when the FY 2013-14 budget was approved, reauthorizing the formerly Democratic state’s blueprint budget with a tragic 2.0-percent increase in general fund appropriations.

The danger is this: In the USA’s upcoming 2014 elections, Republican elites assume that everyone all now agrees that conservatives ‘must’ support non-conservative candidates to win more elections. The GOP is operating on the belief that everyone is on board, simply because insiders have officially decreed it to be so. However, the grassroots in the USA remains unconvinced. Worse, the Republican establishment has no plan for truly healing the actual wounds. Elites want to avoid change more fervently than they do want to win elections. Elites violated trust by advancing liberal policies in the U.S. Congress, but they won’t apologize or

Trey Gowdy is a busy guy, and an up-and-coming senator says he should be on the Supreme Court. ? Over the past year or so, Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican congressman, has drawn substantial national attention, winning adulation from Tea Party activists who like his tough questioning in committee hearings. His growing prominence and indisputably Southern demeanor have made him one of the standouts from the 2010 House class. He’s in good company. Gowdy entered the House in the 2010 Tea Party wave along with three other freshman South Carolina Republicans: Tim Scott, Jeff Duncan, and Mick Mulvaney. The four were nicknamed

Russia´s Putin has invaded his neighbor’s sovereign territory. He must and will face serious repercussions for doing so, and the international community must make the price severe. Unless we are willing to go to war for Ukraine—and I believe that would be unwise—Russia without question has the military might and geographic advantage to control the Crimea and the Russian dominated areas of Ukraine. But at what cost? Russia´s stock market is dropping precipitously and their economy is quite dependent on exports that depend on a stable Ukraine.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
