Liar in chief:
Media stooge response of Mika Brzezinski hitting herself in the face (at about 1:35):
Not because it’s a lie, not because it’s hurting citizens, but because it’s “optics”. It looks bad for the president. They don’t want things to look bad for Obama because they love him and they support leftist ideology. They’re upset because they believed the lies, they still believe the lies, and now they’re having to somehow spin the lies again to make up for the reality of them all being lies.
The piece Scarborough references with regards to a cancer patient is this Wall Street Journal article.
Everyone now is clamoring about Affordable Care Act winners and losers. I am one of the losers.
My grievance is not political; all my energies are directed to enjoying life and staying alive, and I have no time for politics. For almost seven years I have fought and survived stage-4 gallbladder cancer, with a five-year survival rate of less than 2% after diagnosis. I am a determined fighter and extremely lucky. But this luck may have just run out: My affordable, lifesaving medical insurance policy has been canceled effective Dec. 31.
What happened to the president’s promise, “You can keep your health plan”? Or to the promise that “You can keep your doctor”? Thanks to the law, I have been forced to give up a world-class health plan. The exchange would force me to give up a world-class physician.
For a cancer patient, medical coverage is a matter of life and death. Take away people’s ability to control their medical-coverage choices and they may die. I guess that’s a highly effective way to control medical costs. Perhaps that’s the point.
Chris Matthews lies when he decides to spin it by saying that a cancer patient would want Obamacare. You can read the whole article and see that the author, Edie Sundby, is losing her outstanding coverage solely because of Obamacare. Her health care plan paid out over $1.2 million to keep her alive without questioning her needs. She had a plan that fit her needs. Now, Obamacare is going to kill her.
It takes a lot of spin and lies to convince someone that their health care is being revoked for their own good… so they will die… for their own good.
