To the editor:
While campaigning for the ACA, how many times did we hear President Obama declare that if you like your doctor or health care plan, you can keep it — Period! We have since discovered that this is not true. We are told the president misspoke. It is his bill, his signature accomplishment and his legacy. How could he have misspoken so many times? I believe that President Obama lied and deliberately deceived the American people in order to pass his health care plan. If Mr. Obama didn’t know, then neither is his ignorance understood or forgiven.
While I share President Obama’s desire that all Americans have adequate health care, his ACA was passed on a lie. The American justice system demands that it be declared fraudulent and therefore be repealed.
Where is the outrage from our media and elected government officials? When there were no weapons of mass destruction found in Iraq, George W. Bush was branded a liar. Do Democrats misspeak, but Republicans lie?
If a physician, lawyer, teacher, parent or any person of authority knowlingly lies, they forfeit their position of leadership. They can no longer be trusted. They must be reprimanded, prosecuted or forced to resign. How can our military leaders pledge loyalty to their commander in chief? How can our elected Democratic party officials condone this breach of honesty, decency and law? Doing the right thing in Washington has been replaced by doing the right thing for my party and me.
The American people do not like to be lied to, especially by our own president.
