    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUd-slJc-GY]YouTube - Obama: Premiums Will Decrease 3000% So You Should Get A Raise When H'care Is Passed[/ame]


    Ok so he says my employer's preimium would drop by 3000%.

    So I pay 42/week and my employer pays 42/week.

    42x30.00 (aka 3000%) that means my employers premium is going to go from $42/week to -$1260/week. That means obama is claiming that my employer is going to be paid to provide me with insurance. At his 3000% number that means my employer gets $65,000/year to give me coverage.

    Ok obama...keep spinning the lies to convince us you and this health care bill aren't full of crap.

    Sorry but when you lie to my face you make me very angry.

    Obama doesn't give a hoot what his own CBO says about this bill. He is determined to get this abortion of a health care bill passed--regardless of the consequences. He will not trash this bill & start over in a bi-partisan manner--in the open in front of the American public & without the deals he made behind closed doors.

    WHY? Because every thing else he has done--like the stimulus bill has failed miserably.

    At this point he could care less if this is a ROTTEN bill--he going to ram it down our throats anyway.

    A despicable lie told by a sitting President--telling the sheeple that they will get a raise if their employers can reduce medical premiums by 3000%--:lol::lol:

    What a DESPERATE attempt to rally support for Obamacare.

    It's enough to make one nauseated. Do DEMOCRATS--specifically Obama believe that Americans are that stupid. He must--because they voted for him--:lol::lol:

    Here is Democrat Dick Durbin--just last week--stating health care premiums will rise under Obamacare.

    YouTube - Democrat Dick Durbin Admits premiums will go up if health care bill is passed.flv

    it was CORRECTED IMMEDIATELY by the obama camp, saying it was meant to be 3000 DOLLARS not percent....surprised u did not see the correction?

    you really believe it was a lie saying 3000% instead of a mistake PP?

    And that's better how? It won't decrease premiums by $3,000 either. Either way you look at it, it was a lie.

    See if you can find the "fib" in these exchanges:

    BAIER: Deem and passed, Senate reconciliation and we don't know exactly what's in the fix bill. Do you still think —

    OBAMA: No, we will — by the time the vote has taken place, not only I will know what's in it, you'll know what's in it because it's going to be posted and everybody's going to be able to able to evaluate it on the merits.
    ....
    BAIER: Mr. President, you couldn't tell me what the special deals are that are in or not today.

    OBAMA: I just told you what was in and what was not in.

    BAIER: Is Connecticut in?

    OBAMA: Connecticut — what are you specifically referring to?

    BAIER: The $100 million for the hospital? Is Montana in for the asbestos program? Is — you know, listen, there are people — this is real money, people are worried about this stuff.

    OBAMA: And as I said before, this — the final provisions are going to be posted for many days before this thing passes

    That exchange between Baier and Obama was on Wednesday evening. If the bill awaits CBO evaluation before a vote and He wants a vote on Saturday (Sunday?) can many days be in between eval. and passage?
