Obama Lies About Mother To Promote Obamacare

Both Barack and Michelle Obama along with vice president Joe Biden shared stories about Obama’s mother’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 Obama’s biographers and Obama himself.

“Barack had to sit at the end of his mom’s hospital bed and watch her fight cancer and insurance companies at the same time,” Biden said.

Mrs. Obama also said during her speech on Tuesday that “watching your mother die of something that could have been prevented — that’s a tough thing to deal with.”

Obama himself said, “When my mother got cancer she wasn’t a wealthy woman and it pretty much drained all her resources.”

The problem is that Mr. Obama seems to have difficulty with his past (as if we all didn’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.

“The biggest mistake I made was not being at my mother’s bedside when she died,” he said then. ”She was in Hawaii in a hospital, and we didn’t know how fast it was going to take, and I didn’t get there in time.”

David Maraniss reported back in 2008 that Obama did not visit his mother:

“He 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.”

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 Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham suffered and died because she didn’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, Dunham’s biographer, “Ann’s compensation for her job in Jakarta had included health insurance, which covered most of the costs of her medical treatment.”

“Once 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.”

This wasn’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, ““She (Dunham) wasn’t thinking about coming to terms with her own mortality. She had been diagnosed just as she was transitioning between jobs. And she wasn’t sure whether insurance was going to cover the medical expenses because they might consider this a pre-existing condition.”

“I remember just being heartbroken,” Obama continued. “Seeing her struggle through the paperwork and the medical bills and the insurance forms. So I have seen what it’s like when somebody you love is suffering because of a broken health care system. And it’s wrong. It’s not who we are as a people.”

During a presidential debate with John McCain, Obama said, “For 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 they’re saying that this may be a pre-existing condition and they don’t have to pay her treatment, there’s something fundamentally wrong about that.”

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 “hoping” that things were different, but the stubborn facts he wants to “change” keep resurfacing to expose him as a fraud.

  • That generation had it much better than anyone else ever will. Ron paul said he did not know what the next bubble would be. It appears to be healthcare not only do you pay too much to get so little. Soon you will be told to take tests and be guinea pigs for pharmacuticals.
    The gov wants everyone to get a hepatitious c exam. If you come up positive your health insurance gies up and there are 2 new drugs you can be a guinea pig for.
    Vultures who,milk money any way they can for no care, excessive security, and bogus education.
    Wow what kind of scam can I start considering these took no kind of creativity whatsoever. Maybe foot scans to detect fungus and corns before they form. Only $50,000.

    Maybe she had it easy with insurance but most of us don’t. We need real healthcare for all -not just the rich. It needs to be affordable with no middlemen (insurance companies). Insurance companies killed my mother and I would love to see everyone of then go flat broke -like we did when my mother died of cancer after two years of cancer when I was ten. I remember her crying and my dad screaming as they repossessed our car because we needed it to get her to her treatments but we couldn’t afford payments anymore. Everything my dad earned was being sucked up by the damnable doctors and he had to fight to keep his job because the insurance wanted to drop him and my mom -too costly. Am I bitter? YES! I hate insurance companies and ANYTHING that helps THEM and not us – AND that includes the new healthcare laws. They don’t help us. Just the bloodsucker Insurance industry.

    OBAMA! is a bald face liar, always has been and will always be one. All you have to do is listen to his words and the lies become self-evident. Back in 1972, another liar, Tricky Dick Nixon, committed crimes and lied about it, but at least he was impeached for his efforts at being a criminal. As I think of all the crimes OBAMA! has committed against the American people, I can only cry, knowing that our system of government is so messed up that someone like OBAMA! can get away it. I can only hope at this point, that when OBAMA! makes it to the pearly gates of Heaven, that he is judged for his crimes and lies and is cast directly to Hell to spend the rest of eternity with the scum of humanity.

    • Sherry

      I am also tired of his lies and deceit, and I know he will eventually be judged, but I would never wish for him to burn in hell. Let’s just hope he doesn’t get re-elected. Let clear minds prevail on election day. We all MUST vote!

  • I am for affordable healthcare. Everyone should be on medicare or pay a small portion of income.
    Obamacare is not affordable and is rationed. I cannot afford insurance. Had insurance in 2001. None since.
    I paid into ss almost 40 yrs.
    This administration thinks I should pay top dollar for the youth and noncitizens who paid zip into the system.

  • Dan

    Obama probably had something to do with his mother getting cancer, probably was feeding her poison. He is evil through and through, and he will do anything for his own cause.

  • someone

    How do you know what happened? Did you listen in to private phone calls that she places in her bed at the hospital….? You are speculating to support your hatred toward the president that is it. You don’t have any proof to back your claim nor does anyone you listed. Did you or the people you listed speak with her health care provide4r for her job and ask them if they did. NO so stop spreading lies. OMG you people just hat Obama so will make up anything.

    Am not for any Mit or Obama but Have common sense and logical thinking. OMG

    • J0

      “Have common sense and logical thinking.”

      I agree. I don’t like Obama or Romney but this article offers ZERO proof, just some quotes from someone named Janny Scott who may or may no exist. There’s no link (proof/evidence) to anything regarding info on Barack’s mother’s health insurance situation. This article comes off as nothing but ad hominem, and using sophistic reasoning at that. If anyone’s coming off as deceptive it’s the person who wrote this godawful piece of crap.

  • someone

    Oh and Mit isn’t evil. Yeah because only the people who look like you aren’t evil in the white house lolololololo

    We will see what you say when Mit ships your job to another country and obama would have kept it here.

      While its true that all mankind must battle the evil within, there are those of us who know that if you start down the path of telling lies (one of the many evil paths to follow) that before you know it, most everything coming out of your mouth is a lie. When the truth tellers catch you in a lie, all respect is lost. So is OBAMA! a liar or not. Given that he gave interviews to a reporter and openly claimed that he was unable to visit his mother on her death bed, so then when he makes political speeches claiming he was at her bedside, he reaffirms my previous statement, he is a BALD FACE LIAR, willing to tell anyone whatever they want to hear, so that he can push his agenda, which to me appears to be the destruction of this once great nation. Oh not to worry, he has a lot of company in the “I must tell lies to get what I want” department, just look at most if not all of the former presidents of the past 100 years, how many of them are liars?

      So come November, just remember a vote for either OBAMA! or Rommey, is a vote to keep us enslaved and further the destruction of our country.

  • Dan

    Obama hated his mother because she was white, and being white made him Mulatto rather than full Negro. So having her fed poison to cause the cancer makes perfect sense, and also that is why he did not assist her as he hated her so much he could not have any sympathy for her, even when she was sick and dying.
