The Ivory Tower is the Corporate America’s mythical Olympus where executives go to pretend they are real. Much like the mythical gods of Zeus, corporate executives are out of touch with those they purport to care. This extends to our non-leaders in Washington, DC that are so far out of touch with their constituents and reality they actually think we believe their garbage.
This is the only phenomena to explain Senator Harry Reid’s insistence President Obama and the Democrats did not lie about people keeping the health insurance they like.
“What he said was true. If you want to keep the insurance you have, you can keep it. The problem is, we did not put the bill into effect that way,” he said in a recent interview.
Reid went on to say because insurance plans renew on an annual basis, nobody in America technically gets to keep their plan from year to year. Are you kidding me? He actually thinks he can sell that load of crap!
Talk radio is abuzz with the broken promise Obama made to the public regarding the ability to keep insurance plans. With the mainstream media giving him another pass, there is nothing we can do about it but I hope no one lets up on his blatant dishonesty. However, what about the next shoe that will undoubtedly drop?
If he lied about keeping our insurance plans if we like them then he probably lied about keeping our doctors. News is leaking out that Obamacare severely limits coverage networks. If so, say goodbye to your doctor. I’m sure we’ll then be told that our doctors were greedy anyway so we are lucky to have non-greedy doctors.
One final note, Reid exempted some of his staff members from Obamacare. He is the only top congressional leader from both parties to exempt some staff from Obamacare. If Obamacare is so great and he is still defending it, then why exempt his staff?
To borrow a phrase from “A Few Good Men” could it be it is “because he can’t handle the truth!”
