(NationalSentinel) We fully understand the political tactic of repeating a lie so often that it becomes the truth, but that only works when the people you’re trying to convinceÂ don’t already know the truth. When they do and youÂ still try to convince people of the lie, that’s just plain crazy.
In a stunning display of willful ignorance, House Minority Leader, Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), during a recent town hall on CNN, made the laughable statement that the healthcare debacle known as â€œObamacareâ€ has â€œsucceeded in every way,â€ leaving millions of people who seeÂ the Affordable Care Act (ACA)Â as a nightmare for their pocketbooks scratching their heads and asking, â€œWhat, exactly, has been a success, Ms. Pelosi?â€Â
The Obamacare rollout was, as mostÂ Natural NewsÂ readers probably know, nothing short of a complete and utter disaster. But even worse have been its residual effects on premiums and healthcare costs as a whole; what was supposed to be â€œaffordableâ€ care, it turns out, has actually become more expensive. And then there is the â€œif you like your doctor, you can keep your doctorâ€ fairy tale nonsense promised byÂ the former president.
Pelosi has admitted that yes,Â some health care costs are rising and that is thanks primarily to Big Pharma (cough, cough). But evenÂ that is only half-true. Health care premiums and out-of-pocket expenses have literally soared into high orbit, thanks to the law’s massive regulatory regime. These costs will continue to rise and become unaffordable for even more families if the Republicans who control Congress don’t get busy making good on their promise (and the president’s promise) to repeal this turkey.
Meanwhile, it appears that Pelosi is stuck like a broken record parroting the phrase, “Obamacare is great! Obamacare is great!” when the vast majority of the country, which has been ravaged by the law, knows better. It’s one of the reasons why Republicans and Donald J. Trump won.
Maybe the Attending Physician of the United States CongressÂ can recommend a good psychiatrist for Pelosi.
