I'd like to think this is a joke but I think it is another example of how stupid liberals are and how stupid people are who listen to them. :taz:

Feinstein: Hey, you could have kept your plan … until we enacted ObamaCare


posted at 8:01 am on November 4, 2013 by Ed Morrissey



Sen. Dianne Feinstein appeared on CBS’ Face the Nation yesterday in part to face the music.  Bob Schieffer led off this portion of her appearance by noting that the Obama administration has failed to deliver on many promises of ObamaCare, not the least of which was “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” Feinstein tries to explain that the promise was true … up until the bill passed.

No, seriously (via Eliana Johnson at The Corner):




SCHIEFFER: The president said in the beginning that one thing was that if you liked the health care program you had, you could keep it. We now know there was debate within the administration before he said that as to whether that was actually a promise that could be kept. Should the president not have made that statement?

FEINSTEIN: Well, as I understand it, you can keep it up to the time — and I hope this is correct, but this is what I’ve been told — up to the time the bill was enacted, and after that, it’s a different story.  That part of it, if true, was never made clear.

So let’s get this straight.  The promise made by Barack Obama from 2007 forward all the way through the 2012 election, made dozens if not hundreds of times in those five years, meant that you could keep the plan you liked only if we never enacted the reform he proposed? I’ve heard some pretty fanciful spin on the “keep your plan” promise, but that really does take the cake.  “Never made clear,” indeed.

Here’s another question for Senator Feinstein. You voted for this bill and helped push it through Congress with zero Republican votes.  Why is it only now that we find out that you had no idea how this bill, drafted in the Senate by senior Democratic leadership, would impact Americans who liked the insurance they already had? Why did it take Senator Feinstein, a senior member of Democratic leadership on Capitol Hill herself, more than three and a half years to figure this out — and not even to a certainty, if one is to believe this spin cycle yesterday on CBS News?

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

  • Congrats Donald Trump! 45th POTUS!
The answer to the question Feinstein was asked is simple and that is Democrats have an agenda and they don't care whom it punishes. Resistance. Is. Futile.
Some #NeverTrumpers are like the pockets of Japanese who didn't know the war was over

Commiecrats are Machiavellian - where the agenda justifies the means.  They really don't care what is in the bills they pass and as long is it attains the agenda they have set, and they don't care how it affects the people of America.  Nothing else can explain the stupidity of the things they have been pushing - like men being able to dress in drag at work.  THAT is worthy of consideration in the congress of the United States?  No!  There is an agenda behind (and the agenda isn't pro-American) everything they produce. 888bravo
