In his piece, Wolf dissects several of the broken promises and outright lies made by ObamaCare supporters, including:
ObamaCare will control costsWolf is quite blunt in his assessment:
ObamaCare would reduce the number of uninsured
ObamaCare would reduce the federal budget deficit
We did not get here because of simple distortions or exaggerations or even misrepresentations. Obamacare is the product of statements known by their makers to be untrue and meant to deceive -- lies...(Read the full text of "Bending Obamacare's Honesty Curve Downward".)
The Obamacare lies are mounting: You could keep your current insurance. You could keep your doctor. The plan would cost less than a trillion dollars. Medicare would be protected. There would be no health care rationing. No one earning less than $250,000 per year would see an increase in his taxes. Tax credits would alleviate the burdens placed on small businesses. The plan would create 4 million new jobs, 400,000 almost immediately. Americans would love Obamacare once they saw what was in it.
The crumbling of Obamacare is now so unmistakable that its supporters have become the dog that didn’t bark. It's difficult to find anyone outside the administration who is still willing to defend it publicly.
Let's make sure that ObamaCare meets its well-deserved end come 2012.
