New talking point: Obamacare only required cancelation of *crappy* health policies

Last Friday liberal talk-show host Bill Maher pressed Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz about whether Obama lied when he said that under Obamacare people who liked their insurance could keep it. 

"Oh," you may think, "are some loyal members of the fanatical Left finally starting to question their Messiah's policies?

Uh, no.  Instead Maher predictably ran true to form, using the segment to set out the talking points for the next round of the Great Con:  that ALL Americans who have been notified that their health insurance will no longer be offered--i.e. that it's being cancelled--had "crappy" insurance, and that the cancelations were really a favor to the former policy-holders!

Wasserman Schultz laid out another line of defense against the charge that Obama misled Americans about being able to keep their coverage. 
It was not a lie, let’s just be very clear. So let me knock that down right away.  When the president and myself and every other Democrat that talked about that said if you like your health care you can keep it, that was referring to the overwhelming majority of Americans who had health care.

Did ya get that?  They never meant that *everyone* who liked their policy could keep it, but just that *most* could.  In other words, the current stories you're reading about ten million policies being cancelled are just a tiny, tiny percentage of all the health-insurance policies out there. So the Man of Mystery didn't lie, because Obama.

Maher helped de-fuse the charge further by saying
Let’s be honest: [!] Obamacare says, basically, if you have a really crappy plan, you can’t keep it. That’s the truth.  But some people want crap, what can I say? And because of Obamcare, they are not being able to keep it. To me, that is a lie.”
Did you get that?  The Obama regime is only requiring crappy plans to be cancelled.  So if yours was cancelled, by definition it must have been crappy.  Which they define as only covering the things you were willing to pay the insurance company to cover.

Stupid people!  We of the Obama regime insist that all policies offer birth control and maternity coverage.  After all, we're all about fairness!  So if you're a 70-year-old woman and think it's utterly ridiculous for the Democrats to force you to have such coverage, tough shit, cuz we're the ones making the decisions. 

If you don't see that you really need that coverage you must be dumb.  You prolly went to a State university in flyover country. 

Dumb hicks.  No wonder.  Hell, your team's mascot is probably a horse or some other animal, instead of something sophisticated like a color.

Of course the above story is probably from Faux News or some equally unreliable right-wing outlet.  Oh, wait:  It's from that solidly Democratic rag, Politico.

By the end of the year 52% of Americans will agree that Obama didn't mislead a single American--let alone lie--when he said if you liked your health insurance, you could keep it under Obamacare.

By the end of January no one will be able to find a single reliable news story about anyone who had their health insurance cancelled.  Any stories found will be about substandard, "crap" policies.  And 52% of Americans will believe Obama did those people a favor by alerting them to the shortcomings of their health policy.

And when the "employer mandate" finally kicks in--having been unconstitutionally postponed until after the crucial 2014 elections by Executive Order by the unvetted Man of Mystery, it won't matter that another 50 million Americans are looking at cancelled policies.

Absolutely brilliant.
