Hold Them Accountable

"If you like your doctor, you’re going to be able to keep your doctor. If you like your plan, keep your plan."

"[S]mall business owners and people who are being priced out of the insurance market will have the same kind of choice of private health insurance that members of Congress give to themselves."

"This proposal is paid for...[T]his legislation...brings down the cost of health care for families and businesses and the federal government...[It's]one of the biggest deficit-reduction plans in history."

--Barak Obama, March 19, 2010 speech to students at George Mason University.

1. If you like your doctor you can keep him.

2. If you like your plan, you can keep it.

3. This plan will reduce the deficit.

4. Health care costs will decrease.

5. Access to quality health care will increase.

6. The government is not taking over health care.

These are Obama's and Pelosi's promises.

Keep track of them. Each one is false.

We must work to hold accountable every single person who has made these claims and used them to to tarnish the shining star of American liberty.

Time and experience will prove them false. I can only hope that people will quickly learn from this horrible mistake and begin to reject the destructive collectivist premise which motivates such a perverse use of government power--that man does not own his own life and can be forced by others into servitude.

Only when enough people understand the evil behind the claims of compassion will we be able to reverse the march toward ever greater statism.

Hold them all accountable.

Every last one of them.
