MILLINOCKET, Maine, November 10, 2013 – In an MSNBC interview with Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Chris Jansing asked if President Obama had misled Americans. Ms. Schultz replied, “At the end of the day, Americans were not only not mizzled by the President, the overwhelming majority of Americans are already insured.”
“Mizzled?” It’s obvious she was reading from a prepared text. Otherwise how do you screw up the word “misled” unless you rarely see it in print and have never had instruction on how to pronounce it properly? Which means Ms. Schultz did not answer ad lib, but from a script.
Mispronunciation aside, the last part of the sentence, “the overwhelming majority of Americans are already insured” has nothing to do with the rest of the sentence. It stands on its own as a statement, unless Ms. Schultz is trying to suggest that a large number of Americans have been able to get insurance under the exchanges set up by Obamacare. That would be a lie.
Next we go to the President’s “apology” for the “keep your plan” mantra he has chanted for the last few years. In an interview with Chuck Todd of NBC, the President said, “I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me.”
Here is just one of his more famous assurances: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. Period.” Not only was that a lie, but also at the end of that “period” was a lie of omission. A very big “IF” was not mentioned, that being “if your policy hasn’t changed since the Affordable Care Act became law.”
The only way the ordinary person could know that would be if they had read the several thousand pages of the ACA up until the point where the grandfather clause was negated. Obama and his close cadre of confidants may think it was just clever concealment, but in fact it was pathological deception.
