Obama: Yeah, I Kinda Lied About Health Care

Time Magazine is stunned!

There’s been a remarkable amount of coverage of President Obama’s appearance at the House Republican retreat today, but I haven’t seen anyone focus on the President’s rather stunning admission about the Democrats’ health care legislation (Video):

And what is Time Magazine stunned about? This is what Obama remarked

The last thing I will say, though — let me say this about health care and the health care debate, because I think it also bears on a whole lot of other issues. If you look at the package that we’ve presented — and there’s some stray cats and dogs that got in there that we were eliminating, we were in the process of eliminating. For example, we said from the start that it was going to be important for us to be consistent in saying to people if you can have your — if you want to keep the health insurance you got, you can keep it, that you’re not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making. And I think that some of the provisions that got snuck in might have violated that pledge. [emphasis added]

Isn’t the media wonderful? The folks who have been against this legislative abomination of a health system bill have been saying that the bill would damage your ability to keep your insurance and doctor since this started around 8 months ago. In terms of insurance, forcing individuals and companies to switch to federal government approved plans was rather part of the point of the House and Senate bills, in a move towards full government run health care. Not necessarily single payer, but, a step in that direction. But, Time Magazine is stunned that Obama and the Dems would violate the pledge, ie, lie.

Meanwhile, Obama lied some more during the lecture at the GOP retreat (wasn’t he supposed to be listening?) about his CSPAN pledge.
