Skip to comments.Rose, Obama Speechwriters Laugh About the President’s ‘You Can Keep Your Plan’ Lie
Posted on 05/10/2016 12:12:40 PM PDT by Nachum
Charlie Rose and three of Barack Obamas former speechwriters had a good laugh Monday night while joking about the presidents infamous, oft-repeated false promise that under Obamacare, if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.
Obama said dozens of times in the run-up to the Affordable Care Acts signing and enactment that no Americans who liked the insurance plan they had would lose it under the Affordable Care Act. In reality, millions of policies were canceled because of the laws regulations, and Obama was forced to apologize to the American people. The infamous remark was named 2013s Lie of the Year by PolitiFact.
NewsBusters reported Jon Lovett, Jon Favreau and David Litt all came on Charlie Roses eponymous PBS program to gush over Obamas writing abilities and the art of speechwriting in general. Rose asked if they had significant impact on Obamas more serious speeches.
The joke speech is the most fun part of this, but the things Im the most proud of were the most serious speeches, I think, Lovett said. Health care. Economic speeches.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Charlie Rose is such a pathetic Obama suck-up.
I remember his whining: “You called Hillary Clinton a liar, sir.”
A clip of this plus the guy talking about the lies surrounding the Iran deal out this past week are great for Trump’s campaign. Needs to be tweeted out and tied to Clinton. ‘This is how Washington has been screwing you, America’. They’ll lie and then laugh about it.
Nothing funny about those cancellations—at least not to my daughter who was in her final year’s battle with cancer!!—expecially when they came at the Thanksgiving/Christmas Season....
I had a very conservative friend, may she rest in peace, who wouldn’t miss a Charlie Rose show. Couldn’t pay me to watch one.
How are people who believed Obama not offended?
Let’s see if they can summon the same level of mirth when they are on their knees with hands tied behind their backs...awaiting their final dispatch.
Not over yet and remember - he who laughs last, laughs best.
I’m sure these scum kept their doctors and plans. They only screwed over the ‘little’ people.
[The joke speech is the most fun part of this, but the things Im the most proud of were the most serious speeches, I think, Lovett said. Health care. Economic speeches.]
Of course they’re proud of their lies on all of it. That’s how they got idiots to support them. Hello America, this is your 10,000th wake-up call.
It’s not funny to those who it affected.
America is led by LIARS. DemoCRAP lies. They LIE about everything and Congress does NOTHING about it.
I literally want to choke people like this. Lies and then laughing about it.
re: “In reality, millions of policies were canceled because of the laws regulations, and Obama was forced to apologize to the American people.”
Really? I don’t recall Obama ever apologizing for anything except to our enemies for America’s existence.
....and Charlie and friends seem valueless....what disgrace they bring to people with values.
“Its not funny to those who it affected.”
You are right, it’s definitely not funny to those who were so terrible affected by Obama’s lies about keeping your health plan; however, to many of those individuals I would ask one question, “who did you vote for in 2008 and 2012?”
Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who deal faithfully are His delight.
