Deception, Lies & Really Bad News for Obamacare

Things continue to get worse for supporters of Obamacare. First, a key architect of the law revealed on camera how deceptive he and the Administration were in crafting the law so it would pass without transparency — “call it the stupidity of the American voter,” he said.

Now, another piece of the law is under continuing fire since the Supreme Court decided it would hear¬†King v. Burwell¬†after an appeal. This is just one of many issues with the law, which has, in fact, already been changed 42 times since it’s passage.

If a law has to be so completely hacked to death over such a short period of time, doesn’t that mean it wasn’t ready to go in the first place? That’s putting it nicely.

King v. Burwell regards whether or not the Obama Administration will provide tax credits to individuals who purchase insurances through the federal Obamacare exchanges – and not just to those using state-based exchanges.

The Supreme Court taking up the case alone makes the Administration look bad — but the confusing language inside the law only serves to confirm that deception via confusion was part of the plan all along.

The Obamacare architect in the video above said the law was “written in a tortured way” on purpose and that such tactics were “really critical in getting the thing to pass.”

Clearly, the tortured language has been torturing the American people since then, and that continues in this latest court case.

Part of getting people to buy into Obamacare was promising them their healthcare would be less expensive or that they’d receive tax breaks. If the Supreme Court now decides, via King v. Burwell, that individuals cannot receive subsidies through the federal exchange, then all the people in those states will be out of luck once again.

It will be yet another promise broken, another misleading part of a law that’s been everything but what many Americans though it would be.

When something is so bad it has to be written “in a tortured way” to deceive people — and revised 42 times in three years — it’s time to admit it shouldn’t have been passed in the first place.

Since Obamacare was passed, there have been plenty of conservative alternatives to consider but both Democrats and the media have ignored them. It’s time to put forward legislation that actually prioritizes Americans and puts the patient first.
