Christie: ‘People Weren’t Told the Truth’ About ObamaCare

Posted by on Oct 29, 2013 at 9:15 am

As we noted earlier, the longtime romance between Chris Matthews and Barack Obama is officially on the rocks. Now comes news that Chris Christie is also questioning Obama’s rapidly dwindling credibility.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said the American people were misled by the White House’s promise that they could keep their health insurance plans if they liked them Tuesday on CBS This Morning.

“The real problem is that people weren’t told the truth,” he said. “You can remember, they were told that they would be able to keep their policies if they liked them. Now, you hear hundreds of thousands of people across the country being told they couldn’t. So the White House needs to square that with what was told to the American people and told to the Congress beforehand, and it doesn’t seem to square at the moment, but we’ll wait and see.”

Why must we wait? We already know they’re full of it, so just say so.

CBS babblehead Norah O’Donnell tried to prop up the failure in the White House, but Christie didn’t take the bait.

CHRIS CHRISTIE: No, Norah, and it wouldn’t have made any difference, in fact, because you can see all the problems with this. What the federal government wanted us to do in the states was to take on this burden ourselves without telling us how much it would cost or what authority we would have to actually run our exchanges. That’s why myself and 33 other governors, both Republican and Democrat, said no to a state-run exchange. The real problem is that people weren’t told the truth. You can remember, they were told that they would be able to keep their policies if they liked them. Now, you hear hundreds of thousands of people across the country being told they couldn’t. So the White House needs to square that with what was told to the American people and told to the Congress beforehand, and it doesn’t seem to square at the moment, but we’ll wait and see.

    This is when someone needs to walk up to him and, while bitch slapping him, say “NO SHIT SHERLOCK!” And then remind him that he helped put the POS back in the White House.
