Presidential lies

Regarding Barry Gribe’s Nov. 17 Issue One letter (“The Biggest Lie”), is he serious when he says that the president’s promise that if people liked their insurance plans they could keep them was “the biggest, boldest intentional lie ever uttered by an American president”? He’s got to be kidding.

He is yet another conservative who apparently has completely forgotten about George W. Bush. But I suppose that people having to get new insurance coverage is much more heinous than 4,300 Americans dying. That it “altered the future” of many Americans much more than the future of well over 100,000 dead Iraqis. Or that it likely will cost more than the $6 trillion (Brown University, 2013) cost of the Iraq War that we will be paying off for years to come.
