Fo­cus Oba­macare blame on Hill Democrats

The Washington Times Daily - - Editorial -

In read­ing the many col­umns and let­ters about the Oba­macare fi­asco, it strikes me that most fo­cus on how “Pres­i­dent Obama lied.” While that is cer­tainly true, Mr. Obama is now a lame duck who will be out of of­fice come Jan. 20, 2017. The fo­cus needs to be on the con­gres­sional Democrats who lied right along with the pres­i­dent.

It was then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who fa­mously told us that “we need to pass this bill in or­der to find out what is in it.” It was con­gres­sional Democrats who per­pet­u­ated Mr. Obama’s big lie: “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” If the pub­lic is truly fu­ri­ous over the iron­i­cally named “Af­ford­able” Care Act, they need to vote out of of­fice ev­ery Demo­crat who sup­ported it, know­ing all along what was go­ing to hap­pen. Real change will never hap­pen un­til the Belt­way es­tab­lish­ment is voted out of power. NEIL SLAT­TERY Mon­roe, N.J.
