Obamacare Lies Coming Home To Roost

Anyone remember President Obama say in 2009, when he was pushing for the passage of his Affordable Health Care Act, that he would NOT sign a bill that would raise health care costs, premiums, and/or the national debt?  It was the same time he claimed to have “pulled this economy back from the brink.”

And here’s what you need to know.  First, I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits — either now or in the future.  (Applause.)  I will not sign it if it adds one dime to the deficit, now or in the future, period.  And to prove that I’m serious, there will be a provision in this plan that requires us to come forward with more spending cuts if the savings we promised don’t materialize. {emphasis added}

The pitch was that Obamacare was going to cost $940 billion over ten years.  The CBO this week revised the number to $1.4 trillion over nine years.  And when they factor a full ten years of spending in Obamacare, then the total cost will be over $2 trillion.

All of which means that you could expect President Obama to call for the repeal of Obamacare himself. That is, if he is not a lying Marxist.
