LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Lie-based ‘laws’ aren’t legal
Question of the Day
Dr. Milton R. Wolf cited six of the “lies” President Obama used to pass Obamacare through Congress in 2009 and how they have hurt people (“The president’s other Obamacare lies,” Commentary, Dec. 9).
The list of lies is worth repeating, starting with “If you like your plan, you can keep it,” which Mr. Obama said in June 2010. “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period.” That was Mr. Obama the same month. The previous year, he had said, “I will not sign a [health care] plan that adds one dime to our deficits.” Also in 2009, he said, “I will never forget my own mother, as she fought cancer in her final months, having to worry about whether her insurance would refuse to pay for her treatment.” The year before that, he said: “I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital-gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”
Democrats are fond of saying that Obamacare is “the law of the land” and is “here to stay,” but it’s an unjust law, because it was passed only by lying to the people. An unjust law is no law at all, and Obamacare should be repealed.
