Tyler, Texas (KETK) — In the masthead of the New York Times it says "All the news fit to print."
Well, that may have been the mission years ago, but these days, for the 300 people who read the New York Times, the masthead should read
"All the help we can give."
No matter what you want to call them; lies, whoppers, stretches, everyone who can see or hear knows the president said countless times while trying to sell "Obamacare" to the public, "You can keep your doctor and insurance plans."
Just to be cute, he added the word, "period."
Now, millions are finding out this is not the truth and the New York Times says the president was misunderstood.
Here are their words for it, an "Incorrect Promise."
Well, that incorrect promise now has some democrats hair on fire. Barack Obama will never have to face the voters again. But, for those democrats who do, they are banging a gong.
Dianne Feinstein was just re-elected to the Senate in California and she's not up for another five years.
But, even she has partnered with Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu. who is trying to find a way to give insurance plans back to those who just lost them.
A republican congressman, no one here has ever heard from, is also trying to propose legislation to bring back the old policies, but, they are gone.
State insurance regulatory committees would have to re-write laws and procedures. This is turning into a 12-alarm fire and all of D.C. knows it.
Those who are up for election, including Hillary Clinton, right now, are distancing themselves away from this debacle like they would a skunk at a picnic.
This is going to be one for the history books and just wait until next year when employers start dumping employees.
This is a political nuclear mess.
That's my point of view, what's' yours?
