Obama in September: You Are "Crazy" if You Think People Will Lose Insurance, Pay More With ObamaCare

Less than two months ago, in late September, President Barack Obama openly mocked Republicans who predicted that the rollout of the Affordable Care Act would be disastrous. He explained to a group of supporters at Prince George's Community College:
"The Republican party has just spun itself up around this issue. And the fact is the Republicans' biggest fear at this point is not that Affordable Care Act will fail. What they're worried about is it's going to succeed! ...All this would be funny if it wasn't so crazy."

Of course, it has turned out that Republicans and critics of the President's health care law, who said millions of Americans would lose their insurance and see rate increases, were correct. Yet the President felt so confidence about ObamaCare and's success that he quipped:
But you don't have to take my word for it. If you talked to somebody who said, "Well, I don't know, I was watching Fox News and they said this is horrible."

And you -- and you can say, "You know what, don't take my word for it. Go on the website. See for yourself what the prices are. See for yourself what the choices are. Then make up your own mind." Just make -- that's all I'm asking. Make up your own mind.

Ironically, in the opening days of the Affordable Care Act's implementation, thousands of people could not go on the very website that the President is here touting.

And no where in his speech did the President mention that millions of Americans would lose their insurance because of repeated lies that he told. Of course, when Republicans called Mr. Obama on that, he said they were crazy then too.
