On last Sunday’s edition of The Teri O’Brien Show, we discussed the fact that Barack Obama deliberately lied to deceive the American people about his health care scheme because the truth would have been death to his re-election hopes. We told you about the hidden bailout for insurance companies. We told you that millions of people in California will not be able to keep their doctors because United Health is changing its network providers. (Links to these stories here).
So, “if you like your health insurance, you can keep your health insurance,” was Strike 1. Then “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,” also “ended up not being accurate.” Strike 2. Now, what many suspected right before last year’s presidential election, that is, that the Obama regime was manipulating the unemployment numbers to get below 8%, is being confirmed by the Census Bureau.
From the New York Post:
In the home stretch of the 2012 presidential campaign, from August to September, the unemployment rate fell sharply — raising eyebrows from Wall Street to Washington.
The decline — from 8.1 percent in August to 7.8 percent in September — might not have been all it seemed. The numbers, according to a reliable source, were manipulated.
And the Census Bureau, which does the unemployment survey, knew it.
Just two years before the presidential election, the Census Bureau had caught an employee fabricating data that went into the unemployment report, which is one of the most closely watched measures of the economy.
And a knowledgeable source says the deception went beyond that one employee — that it escalated at the time President Obama was seeking reelection in 2012 and continues today.
“He’s not the only one,” said the source, who asked to remain anonymous for now but is willing to talk with the Labor Department and Congress if asked.
Read the whole story. Let’s see if anyone asks the hapless, bumbling Jay Carney about this story today.
Based on this morning’s ABC News story, millions of American voters would like their 2012 votes back.
