Obama on soaring health insurance premiums: ‘I had nothing to do with that’

Image result for obama is liarSure, it’s classic Obama deflection. He could probably smear dog crap on the bottom of your shoe and somehow make the case that it was all because of Republicans. He is that brazen. But it’s also a classic case of something Obama shares with many other liberals - the utter failure to understand that when the government messes around with private markets, the uninvited intervention affects all aspects of the private market. Because markets work like that.

Speaking in Florida, Obama insists that rising health insurance rates have nothing whatsoever to do with ObamaCare, and argues that most people get their health insurance from employer plans that are not ObamaCare plans. Thus, how can it possibly be his fault?

President Barack Obama offers multiple excuses for why health insurance premiums continue to skyrocket, including blaming Republicans and insurance companies for the problems.

  He complains that too many reporters spend more time discussing premium increases than explaining why he isn’t responsible for them.

  “No, I had nothing to do with that,” Obama said, calling it “complicated” despite the “hysteria” that was growing.

  . . .

  The president argued that most people got their health care from their jobs, insisting that Obamacare didn’t even affect their premiums or health policy changes.

  “These are decisions made by your employers, it’s not because of Obamacare,” he said.

This is very much like when Democrats want to raise tax rates and insist it will have no effect whatsoever on economic growth, or job creation. Why, those are separate expenses! That wasn’t because of what we did!

The great deceiver is at it again, the true face of the greatest Liar is Satan himself the more Obama opens his mouth, the more he sounds like lucifer. If Hellary wins she said she's would appoint Obama to the Surpreme Court or to the Head of the UN. The UN is my bet. He can do much greater damage there for Americans. Stop Hellary and Satan Obama, get out and vote numbers are going to count that's for sure. We can't let Satan and his bride win the election. Vote Trump!!!

Nothing has ever been his fault.  What a man....said no one, ever.

This POS is so full of lies! He should be arrested and executed for treason!

Obama only knows what he reads in the New York Times newspaper they said it wasn't his fault it was G W Bushes fault if Bush had never been born & become POTUS OBAMAcare would be doing great. LOL

Sounds as if Obama wants to take away Union negotiated with employers Health Insurance Plans & put them on OBAMAcareless plans.

Every brochure from employee covered Health Insurance is identical to the ones offered on the exchanges with hi deductibles and copays. Who the he!! does he think he is talking to. His stupid base. His HC plans are mandatory.

Everything coming out of this jackass is a lie

What came 1st Employee & Employer negotiated health care plans, Union Employee & Employer health care plans or mandated Obama Democrat & UnJustice Roberts OBAMAcareless mandated plan for thee but not for ME? I know it was the chicken that came 1st that laid the mandated commie democrat egg for us but not for you.

Again, Obama proves that he has no honor, no personal integrity, is a liar, and is a narcissist. Narcissism is a form if abnormal thought process where the affected person believes that only he/she is all intelligent, all knowing about everything, and takes the blame for nothing that fails. Blame is always because someone else caused a failure.

He had everything to do with it, he and every politician who backed him.

Obama lies.

First, Obama said the average American family would see insurance premiums GO DOWN on average $5200.00 per family, under his plan... The opposite occurred. In addition, every opponent of the Affordable Care Act stated the insurance would be unaffordable and that rates would sky rocket... They did and it is unaffordable. 

Obama is not so stupid that he is unable to recall... how his opponents stated that Obama Care would end up being unaffordable, leaving more people uninsured than already are.  Under the Affordable Care Act many working American's have lost their insurance.  They are being fined for failing to pay for insurance they cannot afford.  In addition, millions of Americans with coverage can not use their insurance; as the deductibles are too high. The deductibles range  upwards of 5000 dollars and more.  Hence, tens of millions are effectively without insurance or unable to use their insurance, even though they pay huge premiums...

Obama ought to be in prison based on this program alone... he fraudulently misrepresented the program and like a common CONMAN criminally defrauded Americans out of their Insurance premiums.

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
