So how many times did he say (at least a dozen???)... "you can keep your current plan and doctor"...knowing it was an out and out lie.
Conservative commentator Marc Thiessen accused President Obama of a “bold-faced lie” Monday after Fox News confirmed the White House knew as early as 2010 that over 10 million people would lose their current doctor under ObamaCare.
Megyn Kelly reported Monday on “The Kelly File” that an IRS regulation pushed by the Department of Health and Human Services in 2010 estimated that millions would be unable to keep their health insurance plan under the Affordable Care Act.
Thiessen told Kelly he believes the Obama administration intended for people to lose their current health insurance, despite Obama’s repeated claims that “if you like your plan, you can keep it.”
“The smoking gun is there in your hand," he said, referring to Kelly’s copy of the IRS form. "Look, they knew."
He claimed the administration needs these Americans to move into the ObamaCare exchanges to subsidize the law for those who cannot afford health insurance.
However, Thiessen said the White House did not prepare for the issues with the law’s website, which are creating a situation where not only will Americans get dumped from their health insurance plan, they will be unable to buy a new one.
“What the unanticipated consequence of this they’re pushing all these millions of people out of the health care that they liked into ObamaCare, except the people can’t get into ObamaCare,” he said.

I have posted this before but in our current situation bears repeating. I find it pertinent and hypocritical beyond belief!
Don't expect to here anything about this from the MSM.
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."
~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
I guess he was in the Teaparty before there was a Teaparty.
Wonder if he was audited by the IRS?

On a tip from Ed Kilbane
Senior International Correspondent
As the video below points out, in places like Nairobi, Kenya, “shopping while non-Muslim” can get you tortured and murdered.
Last year, an obscure video somehow whipped countless Muslims around the world into a frenzy.
After the gruesome jihadist attack in Kenya, nary a peep was heard from most Muslim leaders and organizations around the world, including here in America. Reformist Muslims like Zuhdi Jasser and Tawfik Hamid who denounced the attack were the exception.
The inescapable conclusion is that, for countless Muslims and their leaders, the lives of “infidels” count for nothing compared to 14 minutes of video that nobody had even seen.

The question of the year.
We are always hearing about how Social Security is going to run out of money.
How come we never hear about Welfare running out of money?
What's interesting is the first group worked for their money . . .
the second group didn't!!
