Ten Democrats who repeatedly lied about Obamacare.

Genesis cover

On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.

The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit.

The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.

"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs." --San Antonio Express-News

It wasn’t just Obama: Ten Democrats who repeatedly lied about Obamacare.

Each one made the same false claim that no one would lose their doctor or health plan because of Obamacare.


We are now in the third week of my annual July fund-raiser for Behind the Black. My deep thanks to everyone who has so far donated or subscribed. The response this year has been wonderful.

We are not done yet. This monthly fund-raiser is now half over, and I am hoping the second half will result in as many donations as the first half did. If it does, I will remain free to continue my writing as I see fit, unblemished by the efforts of others to squelch my perspective in this increasingly intolerant world.

This year's fund-raising drive is also significant in that it celebrates the 10th anniversary of this website's founding. It is hard to believe, but I have been doing this for a full decade, during which I have written more than 22,000 posts, of which more than 1,000 were essays and almost 2,600 were evening pauses.

Therefore, I hope you will please consider donating to Behind the Black, by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below. Your support will allow me to continue covering science and culture as I have for the past twenty years, independent and free from any outside influence.

    ” “if you like your insurance, you can keep it.” Without this assurance, it is unlikely ObamaCare would have passed. ”

    I find this statement to also be fallacious. Obamacare passed because it was going to be passed not because of any BS assurance that the president had given. A paradigm changing law was passed which effects all Americans, passed by only one party holding a momentary imbalance of power and majority, through every slight of hand and under the counter pay off that the congress and the senate could come up with.

    And now that the law is passed and it appears to be faltering and the president has “admitted” that he may have mislead the public about some of the details he will now make adjustments (above and beyond what is proscribed by the law). Now that you are stuck with it the president and HIS administration as he is so insistent in saying, are free to make law and get this thing really going in the direction it needs to go.

    I think Colin Powell’s pottery barn rule applies here, you broke it, you own it.

    Based upon the dates (before passage) that some of these quotes are from, it would suggest that this was an important point to some of those who voted in favor of it.
