Broken Promises: The Series

25 08 2009

Minority Leader Boehner has a great run down on several of Obama’s broken promises on healthcare reform – ops I obameter_promiseBrokenmean health insurance reform. Here is one from the bill:

Pages 116-128; Sections 221-225 – The House Democrats’ bill establishes a new government-run health plan that, according to nonpartisan actuaries at the Lewin Group, would cause as many as 114 million Americans to lose their existing coverage. Moving these Americans from their current plan into a government-run plan violates the President’s oft-stated promise that “if you like your current coverage, you can keep it.” Both the Associated Press and ABC News have already debunked this pledge, noting that White House officials have acknowledged the President’s rhetoric shouldn’t be taken “literally.”

If we are not to take the President literally, how are we supposed to take him? Wee-weed?
