1. "Some people purchasing new insurance policies for themselves this fall could see premiums rise because of requirements in the health-care law, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told reporters Tuesday."

3. "Massachusetts’ Democratic Rep. Barney Frank recently co-sponsored H.R. 452, joining Rep. Joe Baca and Rep. Loretta Sanchez, both of California, New York Rep. Timothy H. Bishop, Pennsylvania Rep. Chaka Fattah and 10 other Democrats. This measure, introduced by Rep. David P. Roe, Tennessee Republican, would terminate the Independent Payment Advisory Board.

4. "Businesses are starting to scramble to meet the law's requirement that they offer health insurance by the start of next year, which is also when new taxes and regulations will kick in that critics say will result in "rate shock" for young consumers. they'll also be confronted by the litany of promises Democratic lawmakers made before and after it became law. 'You could keep your doctor, and your insurance premiums won't rise.' Even women who skew Democratic lean right on this issue, with 50 percent of them in the targeted districts favoring repeal." http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2013/03/how-obamacare-could-come-back-to-bite-democrats-again-in-2014/274296/.Democrats will tell you anything to push their agenda forward. They will lie. They will cheat. In selling some of the most consequential legislation of our time, democrats have belittled those opposed to their agenda, and have made all kinds of ridiculous promises.
Remember the town hall meetings in the summer of 2010 when Americans became angry because democrats were shoving Obamacare down their throats? Not only were these loud opinions ignored, but Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi had the gall to accuse these Americans participating in democracy of being un-American.
Now that the liberals have what they want, they are realizing just how bad it is. Since early December, when they started to become aware of what conservatives have known all along, they have been scrambling to abandon Obamacare, like a rats from a sinking ship.
Have they been ignorant and foolish or have they been deceitful liars who are now being found out?
Yes. But it really doesn't matter which you believe...
...because either way shows that democrats really cannot be trusted to know and do what is in the best interests of the American people.
