An explosive new report from CBS has the Obama administration on its heels trying to defend itself once again. CBS has uncovered memos that prove the Obama administration has known for years that the Obamacare implementation process would be disastrous, and still did nothing to solve the problems. These memos outline clear and specific issues that could have been mended, but it seems that no one acted on the warnings.
It even seems that instead of fixing problems, the Obama administration may have simply begun covering up the glaring issues out of fear that Republicans would see them and use them for political purposes.
Major Garrett – Three years ago, a trusted Obama health care adviser warned the White House it was losing control of ObamaCare. A memo obtained by CBS said strong leadership was missing, and the law’s successful implementation was in jeopardy. The warnings were dire and specific, and ultimately ignored… David Cutler, who worked on the Obama 2008 campaign and was a valued outside health care consultant, wrote this blunt memo to top White House economic adviser Larry Summers in May 2010: ‘I do not believe the relevant members of the administration understand the President’s vision or have the capability to carry it out.’ Cutler wrote, ‘No one was in charge who had any experience in complex business start-ups.’ He also worried basic regulations, technology, and policy coordination would fail… The White House dismissed these and other warnings. It relied on appointed bureaucrats and senior White House health care advisers. Fearful of constant attacks from congressional Republicans, the White House became secretive about the law’s complexity and regulatory reach.
Many of us are becoming inured to the constant double-speak, malfeasance and lies coming out of the White House – but it’s important that we stay vigilant and keep paying attention. We cannot let any of the Obama administration’s misdeeds slip through the cracks, because we will be the ones who end up paying for them. It is vital that we keep an accounting of these transgressions for future reminder of why we fight, and as proof for the mindless middle as to why liberalism is so dangerous.
This administration has lied – over and over again. At some point the Obamacare debacle will finish its course and the media will move on to other things; it is then that this accounting will prove so important. We will remind the media about the lies the government told us about Benghazi. We’ll remind them about the lies they spoke during the IRS scandal. The lies that came out from the NSA, and the State Department (under Hillary Clinton’s direction). We’ll remind them of the lies told by the Justice Department during Fast and Furious, during Gun Walker and Grenade Walker, and during their assault on the First Amendment.
These lies are not few and far between — they are constant and proof of a pattern of misbehavior that would make a hardened crime boss blush.
The Obama administration needs to know that – We. Will. Never. Forget.
