Harry Reid Claims Those Who Say Obamacare Costs Them More Are Liars

From the floor of the Senate, Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid has stated that all those thousands of Americans that have reported that Obamacare is driving up their costs, not reducing them, and that Obamacare is a “horror story” are simply lying. Yes, Harry Reid just called thousands of Americans liars.

During remarks he made on the floor of the Senate on February 26, Reid talked about those many Americans who are reporting how Obamacare has hurt them. He said, “there’s plenty of horror stories being told,” about Obamacare. “All of them are untrue, but they’re being told all over America.”

But the stories are undeniable. Obamacre is hurting Americans from coast to coast. Are you telling us, Senator Reid, that all these thousands of Americans are liars?

Here are just a few stories of the thousands being reported in the media.

Gainesville medial assistant Casey Heaps, for instance, told the media in Alabama, “I don’t know what this world’s coming to. It’s scary. … oh no, I didn’t get to get my insurance plan I had. I had the one I liked, the one that worked for me, the one I could afford, but no I didn’t get to keep it, it went up!”

Beth Kramer in California was happy to get insurance under Obamacare but then found that no doctors in her area would take her new plan, so having Obamacare is worse than useless to her because it is costing her money while she still can’t get service. “I’m out of medication. I’m sitting here with an infection that I’m out of antibiotics [for] and symptoms are coming back and I have no idea when I can go to a doctor or where,” she said.

Another woman in California found that Obamacare increased her costs tremendously. The 57 year old stay-at-home mom had her insurance cancelled on Dec. 31. But her new plan is 59.6% higher premiums and her deductible is $2,000 higher. Further, she has a higher co-pay. Her costs will be at least $2,466.24 more than last year.

An Illinois family of 4 were also negatively impacted. Both parents and a 23 yr. old were canceled. “We’re scrambling to replace coverage by Jan. 1st at a 80% increase in premiums. Washington, you’re killing us out here,” the family said.

A woman in Missouri complained that there is just “no way” she can afford that higher costs forced upon her by Obamacare. Naturally, thanks to Obamacare she lost her coverage this year. Now her premium will be somewhere around $450 a month with a $6,300 deductible up to $500+ a month for the best plan. She struggles to pay $187 a month right now with a $5000 deductible. “There is no way, no way I can afford this,” she said.

A North Carolina businessman said that healthcare is tripling for his employees going from $311 to $963 a month. Business owner Tony Hyatt said, “I really am concerned that the way things are going that the quality of healthcare will go down.”

There are thousands of these stories all across the nation.

Are all these Americans liars, Mr. Reid?

    I still can’t believe that other Dem Senators aren’t embarrassed to be in the same chamber with Reid, let alone have him as the Senate President.
    The fact Reid is lying with a straight face isn’t surprising. His leader, Barack
    Obama does it all of the time without repercussions.

      Can’t stand the sight of any of the commie Regime. Ugly lying bastards!

      • Hank_M

        ” Ugly lying [commie] bastards”
        Agreed, but they have their bad points too.

    • Constitution First

      Dirty Harry has read “Rules for Radicals” cover-to-cover and swears by every word.
      What amasses me is he talks like a 98-year-old with dementia trying to remember what day it is, yet Nevada still thinks he represents them?

  • Vagabond661

    And yet my father-in-law believes him and Obama. In fact he says if it was fully implimentated, it would be going great.

    He waves off that Obama has had 24 or so changes to the law. My father-in-law said Obama had to because of the interference of the Republicans, not because the law sucks.

    The kool-aid is strong with this one.

    • jim_m

      I note that you father in law conforms to rule one of leftist failure: The plan worked, it just wasn’t implemented in a sufficiently left wing way.

      Reid knows that no matter what they say the media will back them up a la Candy Crowley, without ever bothering to check a single thing, He also understands that 99% of his supporters will believe anything he says anyway because they are eager to hear that government will give them everything they have ever dreamed of.

      • warnertoddhuston

        Why, it CAN’T be bad, it just wasn’t tried right… or something.

        • Walter_Cronanty

          Just didn’t fund it with a sufficient amount of your money.

      • stan25

        The total left wing way is that they want ObamaCare implemented is a single payer plan. The taxpayer be damned.

        • jim_m

          They would have done so but they could not convince all the dems to commit political suicide all at once.

          • stan25

            That is true.

      • http://www.traveLightgame.com/ ljcarolyne

        That Candy Crowley, good name for her, she could die of a sugar overdose any second now & Obama wouldn’t care.

  • GarandFan

    You can trust Harry Reid. He revealed information, relayed by an “anonymous” tipster, that Mitt Romney hadn’t paid his income taxes.

  • jim_m

    It’s only a matter of time before the dems introduce legislation to make promulgating “lies” about their policies illegal.

  • LiberalNightmare

    If we cant trust Harry Reid, who can we trust?

    • stan25

      Certainly not a DemocRAT and all of the RINOs

    • Walter_Cronanty

      A mainstream journalist?

  • truthisliberty

    Barry lied too get this toxic trash passed. Harry Reid is simply badgering people and doing Barry’s dirty work. This is Barry’s thinking! Those who he’s hurting, in his wicked mind are liars. This is how lawless tyrants operate, they justify their harm by blaming the victim’s. Barry is an abuser!

    Sympathy from the devils minion. Bring them to the floor of the Senate and close the place down if they will not be heard.

    Mean as hell A$$hole, go to Hell, and no doubt you will, soon. You aren’t looking so good, Reid toilet mouth. You look old as the hills, you could go any second now. Ever thought of that?
