NYT: Obama ‘Misspoke’ About Keeping Your Plans

From the Daily Caller:

NYTimes: Obama ‘misspoke’ when he claimed Americans could keep their health insurance

By Jeff Poor | November 3, 2013

In its Sunday paper, The New York Times editorial board defended President Barack Obama from criticisms that he had intentionally misled the public when he had claimed if an individual likes their health insurance plan, they could keep their health insurance plan.

The paper’s board also attacked congressional Republicans for stoking fear and confusion, writing that Obama “clearly misspoke” when he repeatedly claimed Americans could keep their health insurance plans as he fought to pass the law and defend it during the 2012 election.

How do you ‘misspeak’ a hundred times? The editors of Pravda during the bad old days of the Soviet Union would stand in awe and admiration at such lickspittle loyalty to The Party.

But, lest we forget, this is the same New York Times that called the National Inquirer liars for reporting John Edwards’ love child, while they were claiming on their front page that John McCain was having an affair with an intern.

“Mr. Obama clearly misspoke when he said that,” the editorial read.

Just like he "misspoke" when he said Benghazi was the result of a YouTube video.

“By law, insurers cannot continue to sell policies that don’t provide the minimum benefits and consumer protections required as of next year. So they’ve sent cancellation notices to hundreds of thousands of people who hold these substandard policies."

And Obama and the New York Times declare any plan to be substandard that doesn’t provide free birth control pills, free ‘breast pumps,’ and free vision and dental care for ‘children’ up to the age of 26.

"(At issue here are not the 149 million people covered by employer plans, but the 10 million to 12 million people who buy policies directly on the individual market.)”

This is a flat out lie, as even the Obama administration admitted back in 2010. At least half of all employer insurance plans will also lose their ‘grandfather’ status. And very soon all of them will lose their status and have to change. Except for the unions’ plans.

But the New York Times doesn’t mind lying to its readers, if it will help Obama and the Democrats.

Later in the editorial, the Times described Obama’s contradicted claims as an overblown controversy.

“This overblown controversy has also obscured the crux of what health care reform is trying to do, which is to guarantee that everyone can buy insurance without being turned away or charged exorbitant rates for pre-existing conditions and that everyone can receive benefits that really protect them against financial or medical disaster, not illusory benefits that prove inadequate when a crisis strikes,” the editorial said.

But according to The Times, it’s no big deal if the largest entitlement since Social Security was rammed down our throats based on outright lies. It doesn’t matter that this was the biggest ‘bait and switch’ in American history.

Of course, all that really matters to the editors of the New York Times is advancing the gay agenda. And if Obama-Care helps gays, then nothing else matters. They have their priorities.

    “This overblown controversy has also obscured the crux of what health care reform is trying to do, which is to guarantee that everyone can buy insurance without being turned away or charged exorbitant rates for pre-existing conditions and that everyone can receive benefits that really protect them against financial or medical disaster, not illusory benefits that prove inadequate when a crisis strikes,” the editorial said. That isn’t what all of this is about at all! This is centralized planning; it’s about acquisition of power. Oligarchs will have most of the power and we will have none of the power.

    The President doesn’t misspeak, he lies.
