President Obama’s repeated assurances that Americans would be able to retain their current health care plans under the ObamaCare program were conscious, deliberate lies. NBC News, tardily performing the kind of journalistic due diligence that should have been done years ago, reports that administration officials were aware that two-thirds – or more – of those currently insured would have their plans cancelled, and most of them will face huge price increases in health coverage under the government-administered system.
Syndicated columnist Clarence Page, a tireless defender of ObamaCare, has conceded that the president has repeatedly lied, while minimizing the importance of a deception that will have immense consequences for millions of Americans. Mr. Obama, according to Page, lied about his program “repeatedly in a campaign that he won” – which means, apparently, that his deliberate dishonesty was ratified by the voters and sanctified by political victory.
This is exactly the same excuse used by George W. Bush and his defenders regarding the deliberate lies used to manipulate the public into the Iraq War. From their perspective, Bush’s re-election in 2004 was an “accountability moment” that transmuted his documented lies into settled policy.
In a democracy, the people are held accountable for the lies their rulers tell them – while those exalted liars claim to be exempt.
