Video shows 19 times Obama lied about reducing insurance premiums by $2500 per year

obama-liar-no-hopeThe Los Angeles Times reported that not only are thousands losing their health care plans despite Obama’s promises, but the average premium for middle-class consumers will spike by 30 percent.

A post at Breitbart.com says this is “in line with what we are seeing all over the country.”  In some cases, consumers are seeing their premiums increase by a factor of ten.

So what happened to Obama’s promises?  Did he forget what he said over and over again, or was it just a bald-faced lie

For those who forgot, here’s Obama promising — at least 19 times — to reduce the average family’s premium by as much as $2,500 per year:

Not only that, Obama promised that those who liked their insurance could keep it.  Turns out that’s a lie as well.

From Examiner:

Amy Ridenour tallied up nearly 1.5 million people in just six states and the District of Columbia who have already lost their coverage thanks to the massive law:

“That adds up to 1,492,000 cancellations. And that number is low as similar cancellation notices have gone out in Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina. We also know that Humana has cancelled policies in Maryland. Unfortunately, no numbers are available thus far in those cases,” she added.

And the situation is only going to get worse. A post at the Weekly Standard says that according to health policy expert Bob Laszewski, an estimated 16 million Americans will lose their current insurance because of Obamacare.

Not only that, but according to NBC News, the Obama administration has known this for at least three years.

So much for “hope and change.”
