ObamaCare: It’s Good For You (I Mean It This Time)

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/11/05

Remember Representative Sheila Jackson Lee’s game-time in Houston on ObamaCare? No? Perhaps you never even heard about it? Or I’m being unclear? Maybe you heard about the woman who isn’t a doctor but plays one at town-hall meetings? No? It went viral and made mainstream news after Patterico scooped it (do a bit of link-surfing after you link-surf from the above link). Sheila Jackson Lee, who couldn’t put four words together without pantsing herself, had a fake doctor in the crowd give a fake story and blah blah yada yada yada during a town-hall meeting.

Not only was Roxana Mayer a fake doctor (she was a grad student at the Univ of Houston), she was also an Obama delegate. Imagine that. She lied about being a doctor and hid the fact she was an insider to make it seem like she was, well, something she was clearly not. All to push ObamaCare.

Let me ask you a question. If your goal is pure, why do you have to use down-and-out lies to achieve your goal? Do you honestly believe “the ends justifies the means”? And, if so, is your goal really all that pure? Or do you already know that too many people will kill your goal if you act in an honorable fashion? If “the truth shall set you free,” why are you afraid of the truth?

Okay, that was more than one question. Sue me.

Why did Roxana Mayer lie? Because she thought her lieing would bring her street cred. Yup. From Patterico’s link above:

UPDATE x4: Further confirmation (as if it were needed!) from the Lone Star Times:

Our own David Jennings secured a phone interview, in which Mayer admitted to impersonating a physician, saying — get this — she thought it would help her credibility. (It didn’t.)

Weird; her hero Barack Obama also thinks that lying enhances his credibility . . .

You really should read their entire post. The idea that this was all Mayer’s idea seems rather outlandish once you’ve taken it all in.

This is just one of many lies told to get ObamaCare passed. Did you hear the one about how the CBO declared it would reduce the deficit? Since CBO only looks at a ten-year static model and ObamaCare starts taxing in 2010 and doesn’t start paying until 2013 (after the Presidential Election cycle), it has ten years of taxes and only seven years of payout. Let me say that again, in a different way. 100 percent of the time studied, it collects taxes but only 70 percent of the time studied, it pays out. So, the small “savings” it achieves is wholly due to the 30 percent of the time it doesn’t pay out. It does not show even close to being deficit-neutral without the first three “free” years where taxes are collected and payout never happens.

Of course, after the 10 years the CBO looks at, all years are being payed out, and at an enormous debt-enhancing cost. And, by the by, when was the last time CBO came even close to the actual cost of a government job?

On a fiscal analysis alone, ObamaCare is “death to us all.” Obama and the Dems have lied about that and continue to lie about it. Fake doctors at town-hall meetings (where Obama said the nation is all “wee-weed-up” and Gibbs very clearly admitted that meant along the lines of “wetting the bed”) were lies abut ObamaCare in an effort to push it. The photo-op of white-coated doctors was a lie.

How many lies must there be before people realize the entire ObamaCare bovine byproduct is a sack of lies? Well, in truth, a very large number of people have decided just so. Look at Rasmussen’s polling data. But a very large number of people are either ignoring the lies or haven’t found out they were lies or are drinking the Obama/Pelosi/Reid kool-aid.

There is an answer to every ailment, and never is that answer “more government intrusion.”
