Obama Lies To CONgress

I find it amazing that our politicians can pick two examples from a country of 300 million people and use those facts to create or change policies. Are politicians just leveraging the fact that our country is completely ignorant when it comes to numbers and the economy? That is not a knock on our great citizens, but rather a put down of our failed public school system whose main purpose is to protect unionized teachers and more importantly the union leaders. Then again, one can ascribe a more sinister reason for this, perhaps politician want us to be ignorant.

The current progressive talking points are that health care reform is necessary because insurance companies are evil. To prove this Obama used two examples of insurance company malfeasance in his speech to CONgress last week.

Scott Harrington at the WSJ has fact checked Obama's claims. It appears our President misled this nation once again. Shocking!

To highlight abusive practices, Mr. Obama referred to an Illinois man who "lost his coverage in the middle of chemotherapy because his insurer found he hadn't reported gallstones that he didn't even know about." The president continued: "They delayed his treatment, and he died because of it."

Although the president has used this example previously, his conclusion is contradicted by the transcript of a June 16 hearing on industry practices before the Subcommittee of Oversight and Investigation of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. The deceased's sister testified that the insurer reinstated her brother's coverage following intervention by the Illinois Attorney General's Office. She testified that her brother received a prescribed stem-cell transplant within the desired three- to four-week "window of opportunity" from "one of the most renowned doctors in the whole world on the specific routine," that the procedure "was extremely successful," and that "it extended his life nearly three and a half years."

250 million Americans with health insurance and this is the best lie he could come up with?

How anyone can listen to this man blabber on and on is incredible. It would take him three hours to give you a five minute sales pitch. What is even more insane is how after sitting though a speech of his anyone can actually believe what he says.
