Obama Lies About Mother To Promote Obamacare

Both Barack and Michelle Obama along with vice president Joe Biden shared stories about Obamaâ€™s motherâ€™s battle with cancer, from which she died in 1995. However, the versions they tell are vastly different from previous versions, including those of two of Obamaâ€™s biographers and Obama himself.
â€śBarack had to sit at the end of his momâ€™s hospital bed and watch her fight cancer and insurance companies at the same time,â€ť Biden said.
Mrs. Obama also said during her speech on Tuesday that â€śwatching your mother die of something that could have been prevented â€” thatâ€™s a tough thing to deal with.â€ť
Obama himself said, â€śWhen my mother got cancer she wasnâ€™t a wealthy woman and it pretty much drained all her resources.â€ť
The problem is that Mr. Obama seems to have difficulty with his past (as if we all didnâ€™t know that). In 2004 he told the Chicago Sun-times that he was not even present when his mother was facing her final days.
â€śThe biggest mistake I made was not being at my motherâ€™s bedside when she died,â€ť he said then. â€ťShe was in Hawaii in a hospital, and we didnâ€™t know how fast it was going to take, and I didnâ€™t get there in time.â€ť
David Maraniss reported back in 2008 that Obama did not visit his mother:
â€śHe was into his Chicago phase, reshaping himself for his political future, but now was drawn back to Hawaii to say goodbye to his mother. Too late, as it turned out. She died on Nov. 7, 1995, before he could get there.â€ť
The problem is not just that the Obamas and Biden lied, but that they lied to push the agenda of Obamacare, because they were saying that Obamaâ€™s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham suffered and died because she didnâ€™t have health insurance.
But that is far from the truth. Because of her job at Development Alternatives Inc. of Bethesda, Maryland, Ms. Dunham had health insurance, which covered her uterine and ovarian cancer.
According to Janny Scott, Dunhamâ€™s biographer, â€śAnnâ€™s compensation for her job in Jakarta had included health insurance, which covered most of the costs of her medical treatment.â€ť
â€śOnce she was back in Hawaii, the hospital billed her insurance company directly, leaving Ann to pay only the deductible and any uncovered expenses, which she said, came to several hundred dollars a month.â€ť
This wasnâ€™t the first time that Obama has pulled on the heartstrings and the legs of people with this fabricated story to promote Obamacare.
In 2007, he told a Santa Barbara, California audience, â€śâ€śShe (Dunham) wasnâ€™t thinking about coming to terms with her own mortality. She had been diagnosed just as she was transitioning between jobs. And she wasnâ€™t sure whether insurance was going to cover the medical expenses because they might consider this a pre-existing condition.â€ť
â€śI remember just being heartbroken,â€ť Obama continued. â€śSeeing her struggle through the paperwork and the medical bills and the insurance forms. So I have seen what itâ€™s like when somebody you love is suffering because of a broken health care system. And itâ€™s wrong. Itâ€™s not who we are as a people.â€ť
During a presidential debate with John McCain, Obama said, â€śFor my mother to die of cancer at the age of 53 and have to spend the last months of her life in the hospital room arguing with insurance companies because theyâ€™re saying that this may be a pre-existing condition and they donâ€™t have to pay her treatment, thereâ€™s something fundamentally wrong about that.â€ť
While Obama was trying to appeal to those in our society who struggle with health care without insurance or even with insurance they face high deductibles, he did so dishonestly. There is nothing in the historical record that puts him either at the bedside of his mother (as though he cared) or that she was without insurance and living in abject poverty. She was not. She was fully insured, paid a deductible and was far from living in poverty. This is just another case of Obama â€śhopingâ€ť that things were different, but the stubborn facts he wants to â€śchangeâ€ť keep resurfacing to expose him as a fraud.
