Democrat Barney Frank Says President Obama ‘Lied to People’ about Obamacare
During: an: interview: with Huffington Post, the former House Financial Services Committee chairman Barney Frank (D-MA) expressed his disappointment with the Obamacare rollout and even went so far as to accuse the president of lying.
“The rollout was so bad, and I was appalled–I don’t understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis,” Frank said. “But frankly, he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn’t true. And you shouldn’t lie to people. And they just lied to people.“
One liar calling out another liar. Precious. He continued,
“[Obama] should have said, ‘Look, in some cases the health care plans that you’ve got are really inadequate, and in your own interests, we’re going to change them.’ But that’s not what he said,”
What Barney Frank is essentially saying here is that he doesn’t take issue with Obamacare. He still supports the law. He just would have liked to see the president explain to the American people that he was: acting in their best interest. After all, the Democrats do believe they know what’s best for every individual: which is why they involve themselves in almost every aspect of our lives. Isn’t that an interesting concept? “In your own interests,” we’re going to (fill in the blank). Maybe it’s seize your savings account but guarantee that you have a retirement? Or, “In your own interests,” we’re going to… determine what you can eat and drink, but don’t worry, you will have the exact amount that you need.
