Another Obamacare Lie: Protecting Those With Pre-Existing Conditions

Lies, Lies, Lies.
Check this one out:

The Affordable Care Act gets curioser and curioser. President Obama promised to protect people with pre-existing conditions and help the uninsured.

Yet these vulnerable groups are getting clobbered. Congress needs to act to protect them and not wait until the entire misadventure plays out.

Here’s a plan of action:

The people most threatened by ObamaCare have pre-existing conditions, meaning health problems that make it hard to get insurance. To sell ObamaCare, the president actually lied, claiming he would protect these people.

He even lied that his mother, Anne Dunham, a cancer victim, suffered because her insurer used the pre-existing condition excuse to drop her. The truth, revealed in a 2011 biography, is she had employer-provided insurance which paid her hospital bills until the end of her life.

Since 1996, employer-provided plans have been barred from dropping or excluding anyone based on a pre-existing condition. Nor does Medicare or Medicaid.

    You almost wonder if Obama has ever been truthful with the American people.

    • DOOM161

      No. I don’t wonder. It’s pretty clear that he hasn’t.

  • Ed Shick

    This gives the Insurance companies a way to get rid of people that have costly medical problems ., Which is enough of a Problem ,, Was Obama Care Created for American People or the Insurance Company , If I was young i would not sign up for it, Obama has done nothing to help America look as great as it should be,, No one trusts him around the World !!

    It is not just people with pre-existing conditions that had no insurance who are (still) running into problems, but what about people who had insurance that can no longer see the doctor that was treating them. Having to choose, or now only being able to afford, a plan that their doctor is not a part, is just one more facet of the Death Panels in O-Care. PPACA should stand for Patient’s Persecution (under the) Anti Care Act.

    Being an old fogey, I completely fail to understand people today. I was born into a period in time where a man’s word was his bond. If an individual dared take a chance and lie to his neighbor, when found out he was doomed. One time and nobody would believe his word again. It would take a long, long time for redemption, and even then there would remain a bad mark on record. Truth was serious business. Today, this self-evident criminal administration lies multiple times as well as freely admits to lying, is believed by the liberal masses today. I’m stumped!

    This guy has royally screwed a large majority of seniors who would have never changed anything to hurt their chances at losing their coverage . Along comes this website that tells you it’s safe only to get you to buy this total lie. While they new that your policy would be canceled after they got what the wanted out of you. No apology can fix the damages this is going to do ,it’s time to start counting the bodies that will die prematurely and without medical coverage. These mutts want to be dictators. Commie muzzy move to the Deseret with your followers let the descent law abiding citizens live yes continue to live

  • DOOM161

    But how about that abortion coverage?

  • dc

    The light of the truth is beginning to shine. Under the old system insurance companies can not drop you for any reason except for not paying your premium.

    You can always tell when Obama lies, his lips are moving. One more thing, people say Obama is changing law at will, it’s called the Executive Order and Obama used it to enact the Dream Act that Congress and the Senate rejected.

    • babbott

      Executive orders were NEVER designed to “change a law at will”. They do not have the force of law, and NO ONE can change a law except Congress. When Obama does this, he is violating the Constitution of the U.S. and should have been impeached long before Obamacare because he did the same thing when he took over the auto makers and violated federal bankruptcy laws.

    I was talking to a Democrat and she admitted that Obama lied and then she said the lie was justified because it got him elected, then she started chanting Four More Years. She went on to say that after Obama, we will get 8 years of Mrs. Clinton, then we can have a Republican President. I then saw Chis Christie leading in the polls, a Republican Progressive always loses to a Progressive Democrat. I guess the lady was right. The Republicans keep nominating Progressive Republicans and keep losing but expecting a different result. Sounds crazy to me.

    • TLady62

      And that Democrat sounds even crazier. I pray she or no one in her family falls into the category of those with pre-existing conditions.

    • J J

      No lie is justified unless you are a Democrat!! But God (which ever one you believe in) will determine whether your lie is justified or not and it may be justified or not by how many people were harmed by the lie – in this case, millions. But if Democrats think that it’s ok to lie to get their way, they need to put the shoe on the other foot and see how it would feel if the tables were turned, Republicans were getting their way on everything by lying. I can hear the screams of the Democrats and the media now!!!!!

      AND God help us if there is even 4 years of Hillary!!!!!!!

  • TLady62

    I’m shocked! Not.

  • vicki

    What doesn’t Obama lie about? If he is talking, I assume he is lying.

  • Delores109

    AMERICANS,
    Anyone who has a pre-existing health condition and has had their health plans dropped should contact their representatives in the HOUSE and in the SENATE. Let them know that you want your plans reinstated. Give information on any member of your family that has a pre-existing condition.
    Another lie by Obama is that no one could avoid insuring you if you have a pre-existing condition. Obama made certain that 10 additional health, unnecessary benefits, were added by the Act to make it UNAFFORDABLE for insurance companies to cover them….or those insurance companies dropping Americans are in collusion with Obama. Whatever is going on, I guarantee will blow away the Unaffordable Care Act. Let your views be known. Obama, you’ve pushed Americans more than enough. You are nothing but a Marxist, used car salesman, trying to convince us that you are selling us a “cream puff.” The Unafforable Health Care Act is ILLEGAL. Your computer program was “designed to fail,” so that you can shove in your government-run, rationed lack of care plan that is a clone of MEDICAID WITH RATIONED HEALTH CARE. You are a criminal, Obama.

    This is what happens when you fix something that isn’t broken.

  • Sidro

    Let’s just let Obumma keep lying and sooner or later he will dig a hole
    So deep that he cannot possibly climb out,hurry Barry !!!

  • J J

    Obama and Democrats don’t care how many lies they have to tell as long as it furthers their agenda!! They don’t care how many actual people get hurt in the process!!! How many more lies have to be told before Obama is impeached????
