ANALYSIS/OPINION:

In reading the many columns and letters about the Obamacare fiasco, it strikes me that most focus on how “President Obama lied.” While that is certainly true, Mr. Obama is now a lame duck who will be out of office come Jan. 20, 2017. The focus needs to be on the congressional Democrats who lied right along with the president.

It was then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who famously told us that “we need to pass this bill in order to find out what is in it.” It was congressional Democrats who perpetuated Mr. Obama’s big lie: “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” If the public is truly furious over the ironically named “Affordable” Care Act, they need to vote out of office every Democrat who supported it, knowing all along what was going to happen. Real change will never happen until the Beltway establishment is voted out of power.
