WATCH: Obama Team Admits Massive Obamacare Lie – Caught On Video!


Several of Obama’s speechwriters gathered with Charlie Rose this week to reminisce on their favorite speech writing moments. During the course of the conversation, Jon Lovett tells Charlie that joke speeches are his favorite, but he is most proud of the serious ones, like the ones he wrote to sell Obamacare to the American people.

That’s when fellow writer Jon Favreau interjects, “Lovett wrote the line about ‘If you like your insurance, you can keep it.'” The table explodes with laughter as Lovett says with mock indignation, “How dare you!”

It’s pretty much: Remember that time we had the President of the United States lie to the American people at least 36 times about Obamacare?! BWAHAHAHAHA Good times! Isn’t it just hilarious?

Watch the infuriating exchange below.

The bigger joke is that Lovett says of the lie, “It’s still true.”

As the Washington Examiner recounts:

An estimated 4.7 million people were told in the fall of 2013 that their health insurance plans would be cancelled for noncompliance with the recently enacted federal healthcare law, according to the Associated Press.

The Obama administration reportedly knew in 2010 that 50-75 percent of the 14 million people in the United States who buy their insurance individually would probably receive cancellation letters, NBC News reported at the time.

On Nov. 7, 2013, Obama went on television to apologize for the mass cancellations.

Later, on Dec. 12, 2013, the fact-checking website PolitiFact gave President Obama the “Lie of the Year” award for promising repeatedly that people who liked their insurance could “keep it.”

Obama’s speechwriters are the ones who got President Teleprompter elected, so we have them to thank for a lot of the lies and deceptions of the last 7+ years. Watching them laugh and joke about how they got us into the mess we’re in is infuriating! It’s yet another slap in the face from Team Obama.

“If you like your health care plan, you can keep it” was the 2013 Lie of the Year, but Obama has told many, many whoppers during his 2 terms in office. What would you say is the worst lie he’s ever told? Let us know in the comments section below!

  • It still seems to be extremely humorous to the liberal faction that they pulled off something as huge and as intrusive as Obamacare fully knowing up front that they were lying to the general public!!! Could this be one of the reasons that Americans are SO angry right now?? This "we have to pass it so you can find out what is in it" routine by itself was obnoxious but then, when we did find out what is in it, we can't do anything about it, we seem to be stuck with it!!! Even though a small amount of people have been positively impacted by Obamacare policies, far more people have been significantly and negatively impacted by Obamacare and this administration doesn't seem to care!!!!! There seems to be more lies concerning Obamacare than there are truths - that is, unfortunately, to be expected from the liberal party!!!!

  • Let's see with his usual smug expression he directly lied to George Stephanopoulos that his bill was laying a "tax" on the people - his lawyers went to the Supreme Court and contended that the reason it was a constitutional law was that congress had the right to "tax" and it was not a fine it was a "tax". Another was the above mentioned and also included "you can keep your doctor and keep your hospital preference" - all false and all noted before the election. Never-the-less, apparently Americans put no great importance on integrity from the leader of their country. The middle class has been knocked flat by the tax consequences of this law (I know absolutely from our sons' experiences) and again, those who re-elected him don't seem to care. Especially, he and Hillary absolutely lied about Benghazi when everyone who watched the news knew it was a lie and still Americans re-elected him. It is a very discouraging state of affairs to realize about one's country!

  • How does this surprise ANYONE? Oh, yea, the idiots who voted for him twice. Still buying the lies, still waiting in line for their free stuff. Think Hilary will do the same and give you all you want, on the backs of the rich, you just have to believe.
    How many times do they have to do this to before you wake up and realize they are lying, have been lying and will continue to lie to you?
