Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice, shame on me.
That is a very old saying, a very wise one…
…and, it turns out, a very current one as well.
From David Rutz’s article for freebeacon.com:
Former Vice President Joe Biden repeated one of his old boss’s most infamous pledges on Monday, saying under his proposal, “if you like your health care plan … you can keep it.”
The 2020 Democratic frontrunner released a health care plan Monday that would seek to build upon the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, which included subsidies to lower prices on the exchanges and also allowing for a “public option” his campaign called similar to Medicare.
“I give people the option. If you like your health care plan, your employer-based plan, you can keep it,” Biden told an audience at an AARP-sponsored forum. “If in fact you have private insurance, you can keep it.”
Does that promise seem familiar?
I hope so, because it certainly should. It is the same promise, in virtually the same words, the Obama/Biden administration sold us about ObamaCare.
And, as we all now know, that promise was an outright lie. ObamaCare provided no provision for anyone to keep his/her insurance.
But now, we have Joe Biden, Vice President under Barack Obama, reselling the same story.
Do you believe him?
If so, why? How many times must this lie be told before reality sets in?
Do you also believe that, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor? And that you’ll save $2,500 a year?
I hope, for your sake, the answer is no. But, if it isn’t, be assured that Joe Biden sends his heartfelt thanks. And a free pass to the Washington DC Unicorn Preserve.
