Obama: "I Am Sorry" Americans Will Lose Their Existing Health Plan Because Of Obamacare

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Remember all those YouTube clips (the same medium used to nearly justify World War III) that caught the president lying again and again with promises and assurances everyone would be able to keep their existing insurance plan under Obamacare even though he knew full they wouldn't, until a week ago, thanks to what is left of the non-brownnosing media, as much was revealed to the general public? Well, it's time to come clean, and once again via clip. Moments ago, in an interview with NBC, the charming and very photogenic president said he was "sorry."

"I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me," Obama told NBC News in an exclusive interview at the White House. "We've got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this."

Surely a good start to make sure "they know they are heard" is for nobody to lose their job over this fiasco, even those who claim full responsibility for the "debacle."

As for apologies, perhaps it would be more prudent to wait until 2014 when the true costs of this latest welfare Ponzi scheme are revealed for all to see and experience: then it will be a daily tirade of non-stop apologies. So let's just chalk today down to a general rehearsal.

There, there, Obama. All is forgiven. Just please tell Mr. Chairwoman to keep pushing that Nasdaq to its old time highs. Because who knows - without the daily distraction from the economic collapse this country finds itself in, an apology just may no longer be sufficient...

The kind of bullshit faux apology only a politician could make with a straight face.

Fuck you Barry, and fuck the rest of the Blue/Red brigade with you!

What Barry didn't say >>>>>>>

a)   I knew this was going to happen and decided to fuck the sheeple in the ass anyway.

b)   I've always known why absolutely none of the Red Team voted for my communist manifesto but since Soros bought me a Peace Prize and the media too I could give a fuck about the sheeple.

c)   Yeah, I knew all about it and I'm still President. So fuck off!

d)   It's Bush's fault. Let's talk about immigration reform, or as Hillary likes to call it, The next great fleecing of America.

e)  Why do you think we call them sheeple?

I just walked out my front door and down the street to get my mail...
And yelled at the top of my lungs:

 

"You can keep your health plan if you like it"

About 5 times...

I await the sheriff's presence....

Shall we now move on to the other promise that "The average US family will save about $2500 pa in pemiums". I recommend that the Repugs just let ACA be because it will implode all by itself with a net  result of FEWER Americans insured, MUCH higher costs for all which will be unaffordable to many and more enrolled in Medicare/Medicaid. Guess who will pay for the latter?

Look. It's not too late to put this fiasco on hold for another year, sort out the problems and then have another go at it.

This douche-bag makes Slick Willie seem like Honest Abe and Jimmy Carter seem like George Washington.  Mike Dukakis looked more at home in that tank than this asswipe looks in a leadership position.

I want for a moderate breeze to come along and send this awkward quisling ( http://www.thefreedictionary.com/quisling ) drifting clumsily off to some far away place, say, the Sargasso Sea, or Namibia perhaps, where he can do no more damage and be heard from no further.

Gee, kids..

Let us not be distracted whilst our goats and other barnyard creatures are being abused by our respected perverts in DC.

After all, it is the right of our military officers to be joined in deviant unions and to lock us all down in during feigned terrorist events.

We have earned this distinction.. cherish it – or else.

They've already used "sorta of a God"...but now he says he's sorry, so that a god is out...some sorta demigod from Chicago apparently.

Maybe they can circle back around to the perfect crease in his pant leg, making his male sychophants legs tingle as women pass out in the aisle from all his hard pivots.

Just went to that shitrag Huffington Post to read the reactions of all those libtards and came away CONVINCED that all those pol sites have been taken over by the public employees union.  Public employees spending work hours posting comments on libtard sites?  Par for the course for our gov't, I suppose.

Paul Krugman is proposing that the government provide full time, full benefit jobs to those of working age that don't already have such government jobs, which would not only reduce unemployment, but resolve this ObamaCare fiasco, since tens of millions more than the present 23 million government workers would then have Mercedes health care plams & gold plated benefits & pensions, too.

The best part is that it can be financed by using platinum trillion dollar coins, minted & deposited monthly.

Krugman doesn't get paid the big bucks, have his own op/ed on the NYT, a professorship at Princeton and win prizes for nothing, don't ya' know.
