    If every syllable the president has uttered regarding health care was found to be untrue, it would still not even approach the losses from Bush/Cheney's lies on Iraq. As long as terms like "liar in chief" are being tossed around, then atop the pinnacle of mendacity are Bush and Nixon. We can give Reagan a pass on Iran Contra because he probably forgot what was and wasn't true.

    The real question is not how many people signed up but how may people have PAID! Signing up is different than paying. Millions will receive subsidies but who will pay for it? Watch for premiums, deductions and co-pays to explode for those few who do pay! It will happen just a sure as night follows day!

    Will BO go down as our generation's FDR and one of the greatest Presidents ever?

    Another lie among many. Coming from the Liar-in-Chief, what do you expect? Isn't pathological lying a mental illness? Ah, yes, from DSM-V, "pseudologia fantastica." The typical characteristics are:

    "The stories told are usually dazzling or fanstastical, but never breach the realm of reality.

    The fabricative tendency is chronic; it is not provoked by the immediate situation or social pressure as much as it is an innate trait of the personality. There is some element of dyscontrol present.

    A definitely internal, not an external, motive for the behavior can be discerned clinically: e.g., long-lasting extortion...

    The stories told tend toward presenting the liar favorably."

    Yeah, this sounds like him.

    People/enrollees private health information leaked due to website incompetence.

    False and inaccurate information provided to enrollees.

    Getting dumped off your insurance you were promised you could keep.

    Losing your Doctor you were promised you could keep.

    Sky rocketing premiums.

    Financial penalties/higher premiums for insurance because you are married.

    Obamacare "Navigators" caught telling people to input fraudulent health information into the website so they can get artificially lower rates.

    Merry Christmas everyone.

    There are a just few of the presents your President has for you this year.

    How does the President and HHS get to change a law without going through Congress?
