If You Like Your Lies, You Can Keep Your Lies

What is it about healthcare that makes Democrats tell lie after lie after lie.  When Obamacare was up for a vote, we got the triple lies of Obama:
1.  If you like your policy, you can keep your policy.  (I and about six million other people were forced to give up their policies, despite Obama's lie.)
2.  If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.  (Again, millions of people were forced into new policies in which their doctors were no longer available.)
3.  Each family will save $2500 per year in premiums.  (Instead, the average premium has gone up by $3000 per year.  On top of that, the average deductible has gone up by another $3500, making the cost for the average family some $6500 more per year.)

Now, the GOP in the Senate has a bill before it and we are getting more lies from Democrats and their allies in the media.

1.  The Dems and the media say the GOP bill slashes Medicaid and people on Medicaid now will lose coverage.  The truth, however, is that the GOP Senate bill raises Medicaid spending by over $100 billion; there are no cuts.  Further, any person currently on Medicaid is guaranteed to keep eligibility into the future under the bill.

2.  The Dems and the media like to say that people will die if the bill passes.  This too is a lie.  No one who wants it, will be left without insurance. 

It's really ridiculous that these lies get stated and no one pushes back against them.
