  • President Obama: 'You can keep your plan if you like it' PolitiFact Lie of the Year

    President Obama walked away with the dubious distinction today of having uttered PolitiFact's Lie of the Yearť for 2013. And the claim that earned him this lack of honor? PolitiFact Oregon, relying on great writing and research by our national counterpart, presents it here: "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it."ť When PolitiFact examined the assertion last month, it gave Obama a Pants on Fire rating, not only for erroneously telling people that, under his Affordable Care Act, they could keep their health insurance plans if they liked them, but by then suggesting he and his...

    What is different about Obama? Rarely, when caught, do presidents simply lie about their original dissimulation. Barack Obama, in contrast, when asked about his faux red line in Syria, simply denied ever issuing it (“I didn’t set a red line”). Unlike presidents who paid high prices rather quickly for their dissimulations, Obama kept getting away with serial deception. The result was similar to a reckless bluffer at the poker table who keeps upping the ante each time he wins with a bad hand — only to lose his enormous pile of bluffed winnings when finally called out. Obama was empowered...

    Earlier this week, former President Bill Clinton advised President Obama to "honor the commitment" he made and to allow Americans to keep their health care plans, if they like them. That was a central promise Obama made when he sold Obamacare, but one that turned out not to be true when Obamacare began to be implemented last month. "So I personally believe, even if it takes a change to the law, the president should honor the commitment the federal government made to those people and let them keep what they got," Clinton in an interview released Tuesday. Now President Obama...

    Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler last week examined this claim from President Obama, among other similar ones as he campaigned in his first term for passage of his signature reform: “That means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health-care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health-care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.” – President Obama, speech to the American Medical Association, June 15, 2009 (as...

    In an exchange with Eric Cantor, Obama acknowledged a report from the CBO that suggested 8-9 million people would lose their heath insurance because of Obamacare. And this was in February of 2010: Did you notice how even then he minimized the 8-9 million who would lose their health insurance as a small part of the 300 million in this country, just as he and his acolytes are doing now?

    NBC's Chuck Todd scored a huge interview with President Obama Thursday and opened things by immediately drilling down on the president's relentlessly repeated lie that under ObamaCare you can keep your current insurance plan if you like it. The full interview is even more impressive than the clips that have been going around. Even after he elicits a "sorry" from Obama, Todd keeps after the point for almost ten minutes.

    Making up a story about your mother to score political points and push an agenda doesn't exactly seem like a good idea...but when did Barack Obama ever think bad ideas weren't good ideas? According to the New York Times, yes, the New York Times, while campaigning in 2008, then Senator Obama lied about a "dispute" he had with a health insurance company so he could pull the sympathy card with voters by saying the insurer wouldn't give her coverage because her cancer was a pre-existing condition. Turns out, the insurer did give his mother coverage and reimbursed her medical costs....

    Retired chemist Edward Schokowitz was incredulous when he received a letter from Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey early last month saying his Medicare Advantage Plan, which had no premium, would be eliminated next year.“They took all the senior citizens and threw us out of the plan. They now want to give us the same plan for $153 [per month],” he told the Daily Caller. “The President said you can’t be kicked out of your plan. He lies.”Schokowitz is one of many Medicare beneficiaries now learning that — like Americans who buy insurance on the individual market —...

    It was less than a week before Obamacare’s exchanges launched that President Obama gave a speech in Maryland about the benefits of the Affordable Care Act. Using a community college in a friendly county as a backdrop, Obama pushed back against Obamacare critics, charging them with “fear-mongering” and mocking them for “crazy” predictions about the law. In that speech, he repeated the promise that the law’s changes would not affect those who already had health insurance. Here’s the “if you like your plan, you can keep it” segment of the speech, which made specific reference to the individual market— the...

    PolitiFact ^ | November 6, 2013
    President Barack Obama’s attempt at explanation has only fanned the flames of controversy over his campaign line, "If you like your health care, you can keep it." Obama was already dealing with a troubled rollout of the healthcare.gov website when reports of health insurance cancellation notices for many Americans started arriving. Such notices have been common only for people purchasing insurance on the individual market, which accounts for about 5 percent of Americans, a small minority. But the existence of people in that situation struck many critics as contradicting his like-it, keep-it promise on its face. Obama’s speech on Nov....

    President Obama said Thursday that he is "sorry" that some Americans are losing their current health insurance plans as a result of the Affordable Care Act, despite his promise that no one would have to give up a health plan they liked. "I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me," he told NBC News in an exclusive interview at the White House. "We've got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who...

    White House press secretary Jay Carney admitted Monday that people who sign up for Obamacare over the phone and in person with paper applications will still have to have their information entered onto healthcare.gov, the website that has been plagued with technical problems since its rollout on Oct. 1. “The whole point is that CMS is processing paper applications through healthcare.gov, but it bypasses the need to create an account, and creating an account is what led to the bulk of issues for users in the initial days,” Carney said in response to questioning from ABC News’ Jonathan Karl, who...

    Rep. Trey Gowdy says President Barack Obama’s latest comments about his health care law could earn him another Nobel Prize — for fiction. “The president already has a Nobel Prize for peace, I think he’s shooting for one in fiction,” Gowdy (R-S.C) said Monday on Fox News’s “The Kelly File.” Gowdy hit the president on changing his language on whether people would be able to keep their insurance plans under Obamacare, after host Megyn Kelly made reference to remarks Obama made Monday regarding existing coverage.
