The lies that surround new health care law

Kathryn Bonnell's recent letter ["Give the new health care plan a chance," The Reader's Voice, Nov. 9] stated that if a lie is repeated, people will start believing. She is right. Millions of Americans believed Obama after dozens of lies about keeping their health care.

He even lied to his fellow Democrats just to get it approved, and even those guys are ticked. Everyone believed except those who knew better. Finally, the liberal media is starting to catch on.

What you have is a huge joke by an even bigger joker. Unfortunately, there has been a multitude of lies and mistakes that are unaccounted for and not even cared about.

They reported that the Benghazi attack was the result of a video. Do you believe that? Or do you pay attention to the other details surrounding the attack? For example, witnesses were forced to keep silent. Or do you believe that Benghazi was a person? 

Obama didn't know anything about the NSA or the IRS scandals. Do you believe that? All you need to do is pay attention to what he says and does, or doesn't say and do, to understand him.

Bonnell's letter also stated that some insurance plans are junk and don't meet the government's guidelines. I'm so glad that Obama is looking out for me; excuse me? Are you serious? Obama's plan and Romney's plan are not the same as was stated. I'm not a fan of either plan, but do some research before believing the lies that you've been told.

I suppose that George Bush was responsible for the government shutdown as well, even though it was the Democrats who wouldn't negotiate.
