In the spring of 2013 HHS Director Kathleen Sebelius told Congress that the Obamacare website was on track and would be ready for its debut in October. Now it seems like that testimony may not have been entirely accurate, and some are wondering if the White House was intentionally misleading Congress and the nation about the problems with the healthcare website. Documents have just been uncovered that show the Obama administration was warned about all of the problems with the Healthcare website back in March.
A report which surfaced in the Washington Post as a result of the work done by congressional investigators shows officials with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and Department of Health and Human Services, including Sec. Kathleen Sebelius, were informed of the scale of the problems plaguing the website’s construction as early as April.
Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman, Fred Upton (R-MI), was incensed that Secretary Sebelius’ testimony did not seem grounded in reality. “But we now know that the secretary’s testimony did not match what was happening behind the scenes,” Upton said.
The slow drip of revelations about Obamacare has been nearly constant this fall. It seems that each day we learn of a new lie, a new twisting of words, or a new smudge of the facts. Sadly this isn’t the only “lie, half-truth, miscommunication” we are learning about today.
Another major revelation broke last night when the Justice Department informed us that the President did indeed know that he was lying to us when he told us, “if you like your healthcare, you can keep it,” because they had told him his promise would not be sustainable.
Even under the grandfathering provision, it is projected that … a majority of group health plans will have lost their grandfather status by the end of 2013.
The “Grandfather Clause” has always been a sham. Always.
Do yourselves a favor and make sure to watch the entire video so that you can educate yourself and beat back your Democrat friends who tell you this is all about “racism.” Then forward this article and video to them so they can do the same.
The President and his people are liars. They’ve been lying for the last five years about everything – Benghazi, the IRS, the NSA, Fast and Furious — and now Obamacare. They will continue to lie to us about everything as long as we let them get away with it. Why is it ok for the President to lie to us and for all of his minions to lie to Congress for him? Where are the calls for honesty, truth and integrity? Where are the articles of Impeachment?
Someone in the GOP has to stand up and demand accountability from the Executive Branch. Remember, this is the same President who has used the power of his office through Executive Orders to legislate more than any other President before him – EVER. If he is willing to lie to us this blatantly, he obviously has no fear for the consequences, which means we cannot allow him the ability to exercise his power unilaterally. Congress must step in and they must, at the very least, tie his hands.
We must impeach the President and if he still will not bend to the will of the people – he must be removed from office for his many lies, scandals and crimes.
