Wherever politics intrudes upon economic life, political success is readily attained by saying what people like to hear rather than what is demonstrably true. Instead of safeguarding truth and honesty, the state then tends to become a major source of insincerity and mendacity. —Hans F. Sennholz
ObamaCare Doesn’t Exist: Honest?
"There is no such thing as Obamacare. You can’t sign up for Obamacare. You sign up for an Anthem policy or an Aetna policy or a WellPoint policy. It’s private insurance,” said Senator Angus King (I-ME). King, who caucuses with the Democrats, deceitfully intended to blame the insurance companies for the government’s coercive health insurance.
In essence, the Maine Senator obfuscates, “There is no such thing as …:”
Harry Reid’s (D-NV) Senate passed ObamaCare.
Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) House passed ObamaCare.
President Obama (D-IL) signed ObamaCare into law.
The law mandates that everybody buys insurance.
The Health and Human Service bureaucracy mandates what the insurance policies must cover.
The law is enforced by the IRS.
Appalling and abhorrent, the Senator from Maine has ineptly proved what a great thinker and observer of government said many years ago:
