should the president be impeached for lying to the american people about the health care?

Report as

Yes. Plus the corrupt way he handled awarding the contract to the Canadian firm to develop the website. It was a no bid contract. After all they donated a million to his campaign and Michelle was classmate of the Executive at the company, and she and the Executive were in some radical black alliance organization. Read all this tonight on various websites.

No offense intended, asking this - are you sure what you're saying is accurate? Being politics it would not be surprising. And it would explain why so little is being said about the contractor in-depth. I'm wondering, are they being penalized for every day the site is down? Hopefully some kind of financial reimbursement clause was written into the contract if the site had problems, or was not ready on time, yes? That's standard stuff.

Benthere: I'm just reading news websites but have been waiting for at least Fox to mention it on air. I just can't believe the GAO didn't step in early to make sure the firm was vetted, unless they were told to shut up or be forced to resign. My career was in govt and I know cronyism was the norm in awarding contracts for at least IT- related projects. That's why my company was left with sub-standard systems over and over.

Gotcha, thanks. You might be right. More & more a "thug" atmosphere seems to be developing around the implementation, repair & defense of this health care program & law. Not sure if it's panic or commited resolution but either way it's disturbing.

If America impeached Obama we'd get Biden and if you ask me, Biden is 10 times worse. So even if Obama deserved to be impeached I think allot of republicans would rather see him stay in office.

I see your point - but I don't know. Obama is a power stricken, conniving and deceptive progressive with an agenda of transforming the US into a government controlled socialist state. Whereas Biden couldn't find his was out of a closet with a flashlight - definitely the lesser of the two evils - no?
Report as
As much as I hate what Obama has done in this country the last few years, he has done ok outside the country in my book. He practically runs the League of Nations and he's kept peace. With Biden, I feel like we'd have a huge target over our country and we have way too many enemies for that.

Are you kidding? Politicians lie all the time, and Obama has been closer to the truth about this ACA than any of those who oppose it.
After all, George W. Bush was not impeached for lying his way into the war with Iraq, and wasting billions of dollars and thousands of soldiers' lives.

paul1951 - Firstly, the question is about Obama. Not Bush. And what are you saying? - that since politicians all the time, Obama's lies are acceptable? Oh, brother!
Report as
Has Obama not wasted trillions more then bush ? Has Obama not threatened to attack more nations then bush ? The difference is America was attacked under bush so he had to do something and that cost a bit of money, Obama is spending money where he doesn't have to if you ask me. And where are you getting this figure of "thousands of soldiers died" I was under the impression that not nearly this many soldiers died but maybe I'm wrong.

Actually there is, if it can be proven he knew it was a lie that you could keep you health insurance or the cost would go up. Which it is now known that sense 2010 as written in the federal register the Obama administration knew it was going to cost more and millions would lose their plan.
Report as
The idea was you can keep your health insurance if after 2010 it met minimum standards. Prior to that would be grandfathered in. The fact that insurance companies are canceling low premium, high deductible, bare bones policies isn't Obama
Report as
He said period. And he knew in 2010 this would happen and he continued to tell people they could keep it if they liked their healthcare . Also the Premium would be 2500. dollars cheaper.And that's a lie too.

ROMNEY CLAIMS OBAMACARE WILL INCREASE HEALTHCARE PREMIUMS $2,500

Report as
No boo Im never wrong I just listened to Obama say it in ten different speeches.

Please post link cause all I found was Romney saying it would raise that exact amount
Report as
Boo just go to YouTube and listen to every speach Obama gave on healthcare. Its listed about 100 times.
Report as
Boo, I agree, lying to Americans (demonstrably true) isn't sufficient grounds for impeachment. But your spin over what Obama said is an attempt to rewrite history when contemporaneous video is posted everywhere. His lie was calculated: his senior advisers including Ezekiel Emanuel (brother of Rahm) told him in 2010 that the promise was false, and warned him it would come back to haunt him, but the political advisers (Valerie Jarrett et alia) said it would not pass without repeated assurances. So, a calculated political lie was born. In all the news and the subject of Wallace's reportage on Fox News Sunday today.
Report as
And the spin fox puts on it is way out there. The majority of Americans are not affected. Of the approximately 5% of self insuring, about 1/2 will see better coverage for less, the other half will take a hit.
The accurate statement should have been: "If you're one of the 95 percent of insured Americans with health coverage through your job or the government, then your plan won't change. If you're purchasing a plan in the individual market, and that plan remains unchanged, you'll also be able to keep it. But if you're non-group plan changes for the worse, it won't be offered once the new law kicks in."
I also love the spin where the group that has rampaged against it now suddenly demands it works better.
Report as
Look who is spinning! You want to pretend he didn't make multiple statements that he KNEW at the time were false. That's a lie, my dear. But let's not get bound up in that; let's use the Adminstration's own numbers. Individual insurance: 10 million will be dropped. 93 million in group insurance will have their insurance dropped or changed due to Obamacare, so the total people affected isn't 5% it's 62-65% of the insured population (165 million policies in force in America).

According to factcheck, that's wrong

Yes. He lied about the Bhengai scandal (I don't know how to spell), spent more money than any president to terrorist origination and Muslims, forcing people to have healthcare when it can't be affordable to a citizen, and he doesn't want this country to be alive anymore because of his 'laws' are destroying work forces, military budgets, and making the ecomony worse by taking money out of a paycheck for someone who works at McDonald's or any where -- thanks to Obamacare. Obamageddon and Odumber. But it is better to have him in office than Biden. Biden would do worse than obama.

There are so many errors in this, it's hard to know where to start.

He gave weapons to drug cartels, gave money to muslims to kill OUR troops, he destroyed insurance and work programs, lied about everything, and told the republicans to vote for Obamacare so they could read it when it was impossible for them to read it with him in the room because he wants to destroy this country. But Biden is a complete idiot that knows nothing. So it would be better to have Obama in office than Biden.

Here is proof that he needs to be impeached.

Obamacare not only is unconstitutional but illegally bypasses Congress, infringes on states’ rights and marking an unprecedented and unauthorized expansion of IRS power.

Sidestepping Congress, Obama already has granted largely unreported de facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens using illicit interagency directives and executive orders.

The Obama administration recklessly endangered the public by releasing from prison criminal illegal aliens at a rate far beyond what is publicly known.

The president’s personal role in the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attack, with new evidence regarding what was transpiring at the U.S. mission prior to the assault – arguably impeachable activities in and of themselves.

Illicit edicts on gun control in addition to the deadly “Fast and Furious” gun-running operation intended, the book shows, to collect fraudulent gun data.
From “fusion centers” to data mining to drones to alarming Department of Homeland Security power grabs, how U.S. citizens are fast arriving at the stage of living under a virtual surveillance regime.

New evidence of rank corruption, cronyism and impeachable offenses related to Obama’s first-term “green” funding adventures.

The illegality of leading a U.S.-NATO military campaign without congressional approval.

Obama has weakened America both domestically and abroad by emboldening enemies, tacitly supporting a Muslim Brotherhood revolution, spurning allies and minimizing the threat of Islamic fundamentalism.

It's not a "high crime and misdemeanor," and the Senate would never convict him. It's what politicians do, and the solution is to punish his party in the next election, as a way to tell them they can't get away with lying about something so important to the American people.
