You didn’t read it. I know you didn’t. Almost no one did.
The main reason you didn’t read it, and the main reason that almost no one did?
“If you like your current health plan, you can keep your current health plan.” – Barack Obama
That’s what did it. Your thinking goes “OK, this is going to help some people who need it, but it won’t affect my health care, with which I’m generally pleased. So yes, I’m in favor.”
Obamacare would have never passed without the above unambiguous and ceaselessly repeated assertion, which, alas, has turned out to be one of the most egregious, sustained, and remorseless lies a president has ever told.
Now that we know it’s a lie, and now that we’ve seen Obama’s scornful reaction to the outrage, I need you to walk with me a bit. We’ve got to get this turned back. This law has already done significant damage. We need to stop it from doing any more.
The first thing you can do is tell your representatives in Congress that you expect them to support efforts to extend existing 2013 policies to 2014. That will buy a little bit of time for more extensive repair.
The second thing you can do is never trust Barack Obama again. He regards you and me with contempt and derision. You support his way, or you’re deranged, evil, or both. Never forget it.
