It's been very painful to listen to the president of the United State this past week because it is now nearly universally admitted that over the past four years, Barack Obama didn't tell the truth to the American people about the Affordable Care Act.
Some say he misspoke, misled, didn't give us the truth--whatever term you want to use--it all really boils down to one dubious reality.
Period. (to use his own favorite punctuation mark.)
And lying destroys the foundation of trust upon which democratic republics are built. Without faith in our leaders and institutions, laws will not be obeyed and peace and civil society cannot exist.
I'm deeply saddened about the Administration's deception. Today, I will move in the opposite spirit and share with you the straight truth about Obamacare.
