It might become the most famous punctuation mark in history: Obama's promise of "if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. Period." Usually the period designates the finality of a thought. Unfortunately the thought preceding it was a lie and that period should look more like an asterisks.
This president just doesn't get it. The American people are sick of being lied to. We deserve better than this. Yet now the president is outrageously trying to change history. He's now claiming that his promise (which he publicly made at least 29 times) really was that you could keep your plan "if it hasn't changed since the law is passed." We've got the tapes. In the digital age of the internet and YouTube and television, it's not very difficult to point out that he is simply lying. If that's what he meant to say, then he didn't say it. He misled us. He lied to us.
Meanwhile, the hits just keep on coming. It's amazing the amount of stories that continue to pour in about the effect Obamacare is having on Americans around the country. Here are more of the latest from just the last day.
