Lies will be downfall of Obama, Dems

Lies will be downfall of Obama, Dems

Obama has done it again — earned the Washington Post maximum lie rating of four Pinocchios for his claim of a high level of Medicaid signups due to Obamacare. This matches his 2013 "Top Lie of the Year" ("If you like your health care plan, you can keep it") which also earned four Pinocchios.

He wasn't alone. Multitudes of Democratic legislators, including Sen. Dick Durbin, joined him in the "you can keep your plan" lie. Durbin also earned himself three Pinocchios from the Post recently for his claim on a Sunday news program that 10 million people have signed up for Obamacare.

Add to this shame the lies told by Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and others about Benghazi and lies by Obama, Lois Lerner and others about IRS targeting of conservative groups. And Eric Holder and his lies about hundreds of arms sent to Mexican cartels in the "Fast and Furious" scandal protected by Obama claiming executive privilege for him.

The Democrats have to lie to keep control. If the voters knew the truth about Obamacare, "Fast and Furious," Benghazi and the IRS, Obama never would have been re-elected. But they did lie and it worked for them, so they continue. The truth would destroy the Obama/Nancy Pelosi/Harry Reid agenda.

But the truth is coming out and American voters will respond accordingly in November. Many Democrats who voted for and lied about Obamacare are up for re-election, and many of them will pay for their deceit.
