In a recent interview with Larry King, former Vice President Dick Cheney stated that by Obama claiming ‘If you like your plan, you can keep it” was a blatant lie that the president was responsible for repeating several times.
Cheney also noted that he believes this will drastically hurt the democrats in the upcoming election years of 2014 for congress and 2016 for a Presidential run. Cheney declared that with the Presidents recent approval ratings “dropping dramatically” and all the negative stigma surrounding the Affordable Care Act, that the GOP would be back on top in 2014 due to “the current performance of the administration.” Cheney concluded.
“If we look at the mess that has been created out of Obamacare by the president having said, ‘You can keep your policy if you like it,’ guaranteed period, that turns out that was a lie, and he repeated it over and over and over again…So I think when we go into 2016, I think our prospects are going to be pretty good.”
It is important to note that during the interview, Dick Cheney failed to mention lies he perpetrated which were directly responsible for thousands of deaths, including at least 4,488 Americans who have died in Iraq. Cheney is trying to unjustly demonize a President that is committed to providing healthcare to millions of Americans in order to save lives.
The fact is, Cheney lied and people died. Republicans can scream about the healthcare website until the day they die, but Cheney will always have the blood of hundreds of thousands of people on his hands.
