Barney Frank on Obamacare rollout: ‘They just lied to people’


Former Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank questioned President Obama’s honesty regarding the rollout of Obamacare in a recent interview. He told The Huffington Post on Friday that he was shocked at the mishandling of the new health care law.

“The rollout was so bad, and I was appalled—I don’t understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis,” the former Democratic congressman told the website.

“But frankly, he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn’t true. And you shouldn’t lie to people. And they just lied to people,” he added.

Mr. Frank told The Huffington Post that Mr. Obama should have better explained the situation to the American people, and laid out the possibilities of losing their existing plans.

    WE, also question Frank, who LIED to the American people, along with Chris Dodd, when they BOTH assured America, that “Freddie/Fannie Mae were SOUND(Frank headed the finance comittee there) – 3 mos. BEFORE Obama got elected, but THEN, to get that $781 BILLION STIMULUS–they claimed it was all about mortgages(F&F) and we HAD to HAVE THAT MONEY, OR AMERICA WOULD COLLAPSE……Frank, You LIED, and Obama just needed that stimulus to “Pay Back His Donors” who got him in office, and set them up in MANY scam businesses(like Solyndra in Ca.) that went ‘Belly-UP in ONE YEAR
    and STILL gave bonuses to their people.” PAY TO PLAY, eh Frank?
    The ‘stimulus will be shovel Ready’…remember Obama saying that about New Jobs- he’s STILL trying to get MORE money for those “shovel ready jobs he LIED ABOUT.”
    Frank, YOU, cannot “Unring a bell”…..You LIED to America-as Obama Continues to do, as he takes our Republic DOWN -DELIBERATELY AS HE IS A FRAUD AND LIAR…..LIKE YOU.

    I guess an aging queen has to seek the spotlight, just to feel alive. He is a sad puppy, who’s time came and went all while he was busy trying to figure out his next moves to cover up his wrong doings. He was in it for himself. worked DC for his own enrichment and is trying to polish the turd that is his legacy.

  • SAMKD1 says:

    I am not a Barney Frank fan in any way, but he is right on this particular subject. Obamacare is a disaster to the USA, and those who support it are doomed to be found lacking in every way….

    old queen just wants attention… Barney thanks for ruining the country…

  • edgineer says:

    Barney is angwy. He doesn’t get to sodomize 17 year old Senate pages anymore.

  • James in Texas says:

    Liars, All! The Socialists, both sides, intended this to be the fore-runner of single-payer Health care. And they will continue to Lie as long as “we” allow them to look us straight in the face and lie to us, Period! And, as an Conservative, I include the Republicans in this group. If your children lied to your face, wouldn’t you do something about it? Do you not think that your employer would fire you for lying?

      I intend to do something about it in Nov. I plan to vote for tea party candidates when I can.

  • PIERRE77L says:

    Now Barney wants to be honest and talks to Huffington post another liar. We don’t need his info. He’s an obvious pathological self-denial Communist Subhuman Queer Mongrel. What the Phuck are you, PONDSCUM !

    1. hpinnc says:

      Wasn’t he Chris Dodd, & another congressman, can’t think of his name, was it Schumer? Anyways they told Congress the Housing Act ]name?] was OK, it was sound, but it turned out to be a disaster. I’m glad he is coming around a little on the Obama-care Act. It’s about time. He is a typical liberal/marxist/socialist democrat, the ones who have been screwing up the country for the last 4 or 5 decades with their freebie programs in order to buy votes.

      1. PIERRE77L says:

        I believe it was Chris Dodd who was involved also on ATM bank fees and other financial technicalities, if I’m not mistaken. They’re both Subhuman Pinko Commie F@gs !

        1. hpinnc says:

          I was going to look it up but forgot. I think there was 3 of them, Barney, Chris Dodd & Chuck Schumer. You are correct. If you remember every time congress or the pres. Bush tried to do anything, they assured them every thing was OK, nothing to worry about. I never had any respect for either of them.

          1. PIERRE77L says:

            Thanks buddy. We must warn our friends and families about them. It is time to get rid of all evil DEMONRATS!

  • edgineer says:

    Nice of Barney to tell us something we already knew.

    1. ItsJo says:

      We the People, KNEW he lied to us, along with Chris Dodd, when they said Freddie/Fannie Mae were SOLID(3 mos.Before the Obama coronation) then once he was in- said “We have to have the Stimulus of $781 billion(mortagages, F&F-etc) to Keep America Sound, or the WhOLE country is going to Collapse.” They claimed, it would be the beginning of ‘Shovel Ready Jobs”…..STILL WAITING…..Crickets!!!!
      LIARS…ALL.

      1. edgineer says:

        The Democratic Party and the establishment Republicans are screwing the American people blind. And they still do not realize it.

  • elton123 says:

    What an idiot Frank is!! Speaking out now instead of when that bill was “rolled out”. O must have threatened him to keep his mouth shut before

  • Stephen Lee says:

    Barney Frank made a career of lying. He thinks he is sexually normal–he is not! He thinks we should understand and accept him–we will not! He thinks he was a good Congressman–he was not! Barney Frank should just quickly disappear.
