Chairman Zero Concedes that he Lied

Last summer, PBO and his sycophants repeated over and over again the line that their health care take over would not put the government between people and their doctors. Yesterday, as he met with Republicans and took questions, he conceded that the actual bills gave lie to that promise.

We said from the start that it was going to be important for us to be consistent in saying to people if you can have your -- if you want to keep the health insurance you got, you can keep it, that you're not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making. And I think that some of the provisions that got snuck in might have violated that pledge.

Now, he tells us. It only took a year of Republicans and Tea Party Patriots sticking to our guns that wrought that concession out of him; if it had been up to him, a bill containing those very provisions would have been signed into law last August.

Obama and his gang rode into Washington with the idea the Chicago style politics coupled with his Messianic charisma and gigantic majorities in Congress meant they could roll right over the Republicans. However, it turns out some ideas are so powerful that even a weakened minority that embraces them can overcome the steamroller will and superior numbers of the majority. Freedom is such an idea.
