Have we ever seen a president more dishonest than Barack Obama? Have we ever seen a president who could lie so often and with such ease? After six years of Obama here are his five biggest and most outlandish lies.
1.) If you like your insurance plan, you can keep your insurance plan Number of mentions: 37 times
As Obama was pushing the tremendously unpopular legislation now known as ‘Obamacare’, at least 37 different times he promised that – If you like your insurance plan you can keep your insurance plan. Even the liberal media could not ignore it. This was lie of the year in 2013. After cancellation letters were sent to 4 million Americans, the public finally realized his breezy assurances were wrong. Above is a montage of Obama repeating this lie over and over.
2.) With Obamacare we will reduce your insurance premiums by $2,500, per family per year Number of mentions: At least 22 times
Barack Obama promised repeatedly that Obamacare would reduce your premiums by $2,500 per year. It was a lie. The exact opposite happened. Average premiums have skyrocketed, for some groups as much as 78 percent.
3.) I cannot pass amnesty through executive action… I am not a dictator Number of mentions: At least 22 times
At least 22 times Obama said he couldn’t do executive amnesty himself. Then he implemented an immunity scheme via executive fiat. “In bypassing Congress, Obama blatantly ignored the rule of law that is the foundation of our democracy and violated his presidential oath to uphold the laws of this land.”
4.) Not one dime of Obamacare will go for abortions Number of mentions: At least 12 times
1,036 Obamacare plans cover abortions.
In spite of repeated promises that Obamacare would not pay for abortions, it is now clear that Obama lied. The GAO confirmed that Obama lied about this and if fact 1,036 Obamacare plans pay for abortions. In fact, the Little Sisters of the Poor, a group of Catholic nuns who provide care for the poor, were forced to file a class action mandate to obtain a judgment so they could refrain from providing access to abortion-inducing drugs.
5.) It was not my decision to pull all the troops from Iraq Number of mentions: 2 times, maybe more
When Obama was running for reelection in 2012, he repeatedly took credit for “ending the war in Iraq.” Then in August 2014, when he sent troops back to Iraq to fight ISIS, Obama said removing U.S. troops from Iraq was not “my decision.” As a result of this reckless move, thousands of innocents have been murdered (including many beheadings), enslaved, relocated forcefully, terrorized and tortured. The horror of Obama’s Iraq blunder will be felt for generations.
These are just President Obama’s most notorious lies. Earlier this week Barack Obama accused the Pentagon of not providing him with a strategy to defeat ISIS. Another lie. Obama also claimed in the same press conference that he brought the deficit down by two-thirds since he came into office. Another lie. That was just one speech. We still have two more years of this. Two more years of nonstop lies.
