The lying needs to stop

By now it has been widely reported that President Obama’s pledge of keeping your insurance policy turned out to be not true — millions of plans have already been canceled nationwide.

Also not true are the personal savings that were promised as families are seeing the cost of their new plans skyrocket.

How the president will recover from this debacle is yet to be seen, but it’s far from over. There is growing evidence that these problems were known in advance, which would make it more a matter of deception than just incompetence.

There are also more shoes to drop as the Affordable Care Act continues to unfold after Jan. 1.

The president offered an apology for misleading the American people on his promises regarding the new health care law, but it appears he is digging himself even deeper.

On Monday of this week the president told supporters on a conference call that 100 million Americans had successfully enrolled in the new insurance plans.

You would think having misled the American people about the ACA and offering his apology, he would measure everything he said about the ACA going forward with extreme caution.

However, his numbers for new enrollees were only about 99.9 million off.

Is this deliberate deception or more bumbling incompetence? Either would be very bad at this stage, but both combined would be intolerable.

This will continue to painfully dribble out until we get some honesty and leadership.
