Saturday, April 16, 2011 on Obama Speech: He Lied and Lied A Lot

Not that anyone would need a third-party to check on the President's clearly laughable speech this past Wednesday, but it's nice to see that someone other than conservatives is monitoring President Obama.  Enter, which analyzed the President's speech.  Their conclusion:
"President Barack Obama misrepresented the House Republicans’ budget plan... and exaggerated its impact on U.S. residents during an April 13 speech on deficit reduction."
That's their opening sentence.  Probably not what the President wanted to hear, especially when he is trying to fool his audience.  But wait, there's more.
What about Obama's claim that Paul Ryan's bill would "leave seniors at the mercy of the insurance industry?"  Well, according to FactCheck:
That’s an exaggeration. Nothing would change for those 55 and older. Those younger would get federal subsidies to buy private insurance from a Medicare exchange set up by the government.
What about the President's claim that Mr. Ryan's bill either specifically aims to lower benefits for "disabled children" or will intentionally lower funding for "autistic children?"  Again, according to FactCheck:
That, too, is an exaggeration. The GOP says states would have "freedom and flexibility to tailor a Medicaid program that fits the needs of their unique populations." It doesn’t bar states from covering those children.
What about Mr. Obama's claim that he is saving the United States $1,000,000,000,000 with his health care bill over the next decade?  According to FactCheck:
He repeated a deceptive talking point that the new health care law will reduce the deficit by $1 trillion. That’s the Democrats’ own estimate over a 20-year period. The Congressional Budget Office pegged the deficit savings at $210 billion over 10 years and warned that estimates beyond a decade are "more and more uncertain." 
What about Obama's claim that taxes for the "rich" are the lowest in "50 years?"  Well:
But the most recent nonpartisan congressional analysis showed that the average federal tax rate for high-income taxpayers was lower in 1986.
I think you get the idea.  The President lied his mouth off this past Wednesday.  So, have you seen this report on the Main Stream Media?
