Sebelius Replacement Fact-Checked ‘You Can Keep Your Plan’
Liberals all have their facts wrong.
Check it out:
At the Washington Post op-ed writer Marc A. Thiessen wants the President’s next nominee for Health and Human Services to explain how Obamacare became the “lie of the year,” and he has a good point. The nominee was previously responsible for fact checking Obama’s speeches where he repeatedly claimed that we could “keep our doctors.”
With the resignation of embattled HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, President Obama immediately nominated Sylvia Burwell as a replacement. While
Burwell has no particular experience in healthcare, she is the head of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), an agency that has intimate knowledge of Obama’s budget proposals and policy ideas.
OMB is responsible for scoring the economic impact of the President’s budget and policy proposals.
But as Thiessen point out in his April 14 piece, the OMB has another little-known duty: fact checking Obama’s speeches.
Because of this duty, the Post writer wants to know why Burwell’s office approved the countless times that Obama said “if you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan” in speeches for nearly four years.
