The Truth Will Out

FoIB Bob D passed along a little nugget (via The American Spectator). During a recent news conference, Mr Obama responded to the suggestion that his signature legislative "victory" wasn't getting enough credit from the left. It's a very telling statement

"(I)n order to get stuff done, we’re going to compromise. This is why FDR, when he started Social Security, it only affected widows and orphans. You did not qualify. And yet now it is something that really helps a lot of people. When Medicare was started, it was a small program. It grew."

"It grew."


Let's dispense with the false analogy between Social Security/Medicare and ObamaCare©, and focus on what this startling admission signifies: a public repudiation of his own stated promises. That is, as ObamaCare© grows, it becomes more expensive, and more restrictive. It's also an admission that the plan is designed to fail in one of its most imprtant goals: to rein in the cost of health care.

Thanks, Mr President, for clearing that up for us.
