“Fear-mongering” about ObamaCare was true?

Posted: 4th February 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

Throughout the lengthy discussions in America about the health care plan that Obama wanted passed, much of the opposition to the plan was labeled “fear-mongering” by the Obama administration.  People were noting that the plan may force you to change doctors, to change your insurance plan even if you are happy with it, etc. and these were called lies by the administration.

Well, Glenn Beck has now pointed out, with video of Obama, that it appears this wasn’t just fear-mongering.  He showed clip after clip of Obama stating that you can keep your healthcare, keep your doctor, etc. and then he shows a clip from January 29, 2010 with Obama saying

For example, we said from the start that it was going to be important for us to be consistent in saying to people if you can have your — if you want to keep the health insurance you got, you can keep it, that you’re not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making. And I think that some of the provisions that got snuck in might have violated that pledge.

It’s funny that he suggests these things were “snuck in” – who “snuck” these provisions in?  Were they “snuck in” in the same fashion in which you tried to “sneak in” the entire plan, through closed-door, late-night meetings?
