And it doesn’t matter how many times he repeats the lie that his Obamacare will not add to the deficit, it will unless he breaks another promise not to raise taxes on the middle class. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has already pointed out it will. And the scary thing is that so many are still on board with this plan that promises rationed care, government control, the death of the private insurance companies, taxpayer funded abortions, a new Health Care Czar with as yet to be determined powers over our very lives, and new direct government access to our bank accounts. Even 40% supporting such a plan is too much and it means we’ve got to work much harder to convince the last holdouts.

President Obama has attempted to alleviate veterans’ concerns about the negative impact of national healthcare reform legislation.
In a speech earlier this month before the Veterans of Foreign Wars national convention, President Obama said, “Since there’s been so much misinformation out there about health insurance reform, let me say this. One thing that reform won’t change is veterans’ health care. No one is going to take away your benefits. That’s the truth.” Although his statement may be true, it is at best misleading.
Neither I nor the veterans’ service organizations have asserted that the proposed healthcare reform legislation would eliminate or directly change health care provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
However, there are a number of reasons for veterans to be deeply concerned, despite the assurances by President Obama and House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman.
