Does the Obama Administration have a problem with the truth?
After 18 months in office we can look at some facts and have to wonder about how truthful this administration is.
Obama swore he wouldn't raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 per year. Now in response to legal cases being brought by the states regarding healthcare, this administration is claiming the requirement to buy healthcare is a TAX. This despite the fact that during the debate on healthcare, the Administration swore this requirement was NOT A TAX. This is a double lie. It wasn't a tax but now it is and no one earning less than $250,000 would see ANY KIND of tax increase.
The Obama administration will soon employ tax-payer funds to pay for abortions in Pennsylvania. According to CNS, the “Health and Human Services Department is giving Pennsylvania $160 million to set up a new high-risk insurance pool that will cover any abortion that is legal in the state.”
This is despite the fact that Obama said it wouldn't do this and that he issued an executive order to that effect. It turns out that an executive order cannot countermand a law. Now either Obama is a constitutional scholar and knew this, or he is a very bad constitutional scholar.
The War on Man made disasters (previously the War on Terror)
Obama had actually pleasantly surprised conservatives but has disappointed liberals. If you are a liberal this is where you see Obama's lying. You can watch John Stewart here and how he characterizes this.
We have been treated to a constantly changing numbers on the number of jobs created or saved. Biden is touting 3 million while on the website he is responsible for it say less than 700,000. And 90% of these were supposed to be in the private sector when Obama was trying to pass the stimulus.
Obama and the Democrats in general were budget hawks when they were running for office. After getting in office rather than cutting the Bush deficit they have tripled it. Of course they have a mature explanation for this. Bush started it.
