Obama Pretty Blatantly Lies About Single Payer at New Hampshire Town Hall



Text  



“I have not said that I am a supporter of a single-payer system,” Obama tells the crowd in New Hampshire.

The Wall Street Journal’s Washington Wire, August 19, 2008: “Obama Touts Single-Payer System for Health Care”:

Barack Obama said he would consider embracing a single-payer health-care system, beloved by liberals, as his plan for broader coverage evolves over time.

“If I were designing a system from scratch, I would probably go ahead with a single-payer system,” Obama told some 1,800 people at a town-hall style meeting on the economy.
