Obama Told 18 Lies to Sell Obamacare in 2009 Alone

I believe it’s fair to say that Trump is unique in his disregard for the truth… However, I also think that there’s a way to make this case without covering up so many of the clear falsehoods Obama told…

Though I’ve had separate criticisms of those sites, I figured some people wouldn’t want to go on my judgment alone, so I’m including them.

I’m sure some people will question whether all of these qualify, but it would be tough to argue that none of the ones listed here qualify as blatantly false.

And keep in mind that this analysis only looks at claims about healthcare and only in 2009. The New York Times analysis purports to look at every false claim over the full eight years of his presidency…
