Obozo, the Compulsive Liar

In the end, he'll be remembered not for 'unifying the country,' but for being a compulsive liar.

...Meanwhile, Obama puts a happy face on ObamaCare by claiming it is already slowing health spending. "Thanks in part to the Affordable Care Act, health care costs are growing at the slowest rate in 50 years," he said recently. "Employer-based health care costs are growing at about one-third the rate of a decade ago."
This, too, is false. Yes, the rate of growth in national health spending has slowed in recent years. It was just 3.9% in 2009, 2010 and 2011. And employer premium growth had been on the downtrend.

But these have nothing to do with ObamaCare. The latest report from the chief actuary of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services — the official scorekeeper of health spending — says the spending growth slowdown is "unrelated to the (Affordable Care Act)."

And indeed, it gets even worse:

It also reports that ObamaCare will add to national spending over the next decade. Other reports have pinned much of the slowdown on the recession and Obama's lousy recovery that followed it. Plus, ObamaCare is now pushing premiums up.

And the website started today by being down for 11 hours.

Actually, YOU are the compulsive liar. The website was not down at all today.

The website was down overnight Friday for 11 hours from 9PM EST to 8AM EST for SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE.

And as usual, your source is an editorial that does not provide any source for it's claims or quotes. There no links to ANYthing. Even the supposed quote from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is a fragment of a sentence with no link to read the context of the very few quoted words. I even Googled the "quote" and all I got was a bunch of RWNJ hate pages that repeated the quote but linked to nothing but the echo chamber.

You are such a liar and so are your sources. If they weren't and you weren't, you would happily provide links to the sources of assertions.

Wow Anon, so when the site is down it IS NOT down????

And for the sources sources sources whining when does the left lay it out for the right? Be a grown up and go find them. Easy enough to find if you were not running your mouth and having a tantrum.

Yah, well, we let girlygirls like Anony 1 screech here.

Makes it easier for their menfolks to deal with them.

I can take it.

I looked. What I found was a right wing circle jerk, just like here. Everybody quoted everybody else but nobody linked to any actual original source.

So one could conclude that "unrelated to the (Affordable Care Act)" was referring to Ron Burgundy doing a car commercial.

As soon as the WH confirms that their loyalists will buy "scheduled maintenance" as an iron-clad excuse for failure the Obama Administration will be frequently and without warning closed for all manner of "scheduled maintenance." Much cheaper and less effort than passing out kool-aid and candy.

When the administration announces a "scheduled maintenance" one week ahead of time and that maintenance takes place as and when scheduled it is NOT a failure.

Let me fix that for ya:

Obama will be known for returning peace and tranquility to the nation, dispatching al Qaida, and providing health insurance for all Americans.

Those who view Obama through such darkly tinted rose colored glasses will be the ones who finally crash the hardest. Fools are welcoming the deception with open arms and trusting hearts and are naive beyond belief. They are so very completely invested in the deceit it amazes me. Only the one percenters will benefit from this charlatan's tenure.

Anyone over age 40 remembers learning about our American Presidents.

George Washington and the cherry tree. "I can not tell a lie."

Abe Lincoln "Honest Abe".

What will be the next lesson? Might be why Obama is pushing Commie Core...
