Obama Repeatedly Lied About His Mother’s Health Care
From September, 2007 through the passage of Obamacare, Obama repeatedly told various versions of the following story about the health insurance problems his mother had during her last illness:
“I remember in the last month of her life, she wasn’t thinking about how to get well, she wasn’t thinking about coming to terms with her own mortality, she was thinking about whether or not insurance was going to cover the medical bills and whether our family would be bankrupt as a consequence,”
Turns out it’s a lie. Obama’s mother had all but the deductible portion of her medical bills paid by her health insurance, which also paid her airfare from Jakarta to Hawaii where she was treated. She was denied disability coverage for her living expenses because her disability was established before the disability policy became effective. That’s a completely different story. You can’t wait until you are disabled to take out disability insurance. It’s all recounted in an admiring biography of Ann Dunham and in a column by Byron York.
Obamacare rests on a foundation of lies, this being only one. Another reason, if any were needed, to repeal it.
