President’s false promises about Obamacare should be termed ‘lies’


To the Editor:

“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.”

— Barack Obama, speaking on June 15, 2009.

“Now, if you have or had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law and you really liked that plan, what we said was you can keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law passed.”

— Barack Obama, Nov. 4, 2013.

Why is it so difficult for folks to call a lie a lie?

Misspoke? No.

Misrepresented? No.

Oversimplified? No.


Plain and simple, our president lies.

How can so many continue to support a person who repeatedly is dishonest? He is in the most honored position that this nation can elect a person into: president of the United States! He represents our nation and citizens before the world. Are we really proud of this man? Is this the way we wish the world to view our nation?

This is not about Democrats, Republicans, Independents or tea party members. This is about doing what is right. How can it be right to distort the truth? To be dishonest? To hide facts?

Surely, no one can continue to ignore the continuous lies that flow from the mouth of this man!

“If you tell a lie often enough, people begin to believe it.” (Unknown)
