Health care law built on lies

April 8, 2013 

I read in the paper that Obamacare premiums are projected to rise an average of more 30 percent and in California, a rise of 60 percent is expected. This will drive more business out of state and put more people on a part-time status.

Four years ago, President Obama said that the average premium would drop by $2,500 per family. What can you expect from an administration that says "we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it"?

I have not talked to one conservative who believes that the government could run any program cheaper than private enterprise. John Kerry, our secretary of state, said that in the United States, we have many rights, including the right to be stupid. I think one of the best examples of that is believing anything that the Obama administration says. How embarrassing it must be to be liberal; they definitely believe in the tooth fairy.
