Chris Christie: The real problem with ObamaCare is that “people weren’t told the truth”

posted at 3:21 pm on October 29, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

In an almost amazingly polar opposite scenario from what’s going down with the Democratic candidate well-positioned to take red-turned-purple Virginia in the other gubernatorial race going on this year, Republican Gov. Chris Christie is poised for an epic landslide in blue New Jersey, as yet another poll confirmed this morning:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie continues to sail toward reelection, with a new poll on Tuesday a week before Election Day showing him with a 2-1 lead over his Democratic opponent.

Christie leads state Sen. Barbara Buono 64 percent to 31 percent in a Quinnipiac poll. He leads across most demographic groups, and even picks up support of 31 percent of Democrats.

His so-not-DC sense of bipartisanship has been the big schtick of his largely positive campaign, and he’s lost no opportunity to tout it with his TV appearances about New Jersey’s post-Sandy rebuilding progress. Hence, the firm-yet-reasoned criticism of ObamaCare’s broken promises on CBS this morning, after Norah O’Donnell mentioned that about 800,000 people in New Jersey are getting kicked off of their current health plans. Starting at the 2:00 mark:

What the federal government wanted us to do was to take on this burden ourselves, without telling us how much it would cost or what authority we’d actually have to run our exchanges. That’s why myself, and 33 other governors, both Republican and Democrat, said no to a state-run exchange. The real problem is that people weren’t told the truth. You can remember they were told that they would be able to keep their policies if they like them, and now you hear hundreds of thousands of people across the country being told they couldn’t. … So the White House needs to square that with what was told to the American people and told to Congress beforehand.

Ahem. Just sayin.’

Speaking on Good Morning America on the first anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, Christie said he does not have “a crystal ball” and couldn’t make promises about what will happen in the future. “I’m committed to being the best governor New Jersey can have for as long as I can possibly do it,” he said.

“I’ve been really honest with the people of New Jersey and told them exactly that,” he said. “I’ll do this job as long as aggressively as I can and my current intention is to spend four years, but we’ll see what happens.”

With all due respect, Chrisp…er…Christie, the big problem with PlaceboCare is that it is PlaceboCare. It matters not whether it was authored by Romney or Obama/Pelosi/Reid/lobbyists – socialized medicine DOES NOT WORK!

No, the real problem with Obamacare is that it shouldn’t have been passed over the objections of the majority of the American people in the first place.

although Christie is a rino he has a good chance to win New jersey and probably NY(the new york city metropolitan area loves him) and upper new york state is republican.

But -he is a rino.

Now, go ahead and change parties and get it over with.

kingsjester on October 29, 2013 at 3:29 PM

That people weren’t told the truth is a problem but not the main problem. The main problem is that Obamacare is a socialist redistributive program that will make insurance more expensive for less quality care that is harder to come by.

The part about the truth not being told is primarily that Obamacare would never have become law if the truth had been told in the first place. So for Obama and his pals, the lack of truth is a feature, not a bug.

Texas Zombie on October 29, 2013 at 3:29 PM

The real problem is that ObamaCare is socialized medicine giving a bloated government power over 20% of the economy and jurisdiction over life and death decisions resulting in an economic disaster and the impoverishment of Americans, mediocre to terrible health care for all but the wealthy and the political class, and death panels for those without the right political connections; it was written with contradictory provisions that give HHS and the President the ability to effectively rewrite the law as desired with regulations to be administered by officials who are inept and inefficient at best and corrupt at worst.

Saying the real problem is that people weren’t told the truth only begins to scratch the surface.

I live in mass. and have a romneycare policy.i have retired before 65.

My policy is not subsidized. Romneycare has worked to a degree.

but it is not perfect.

the difference between romney care and obamacare is this.

massachusettes only had 8 percent of the population without insurance.

a lot easier to close the gap with that ammt. also it was pushed on it’s ability to get insurance not control the price of healthcare.

no state had a smaller percentage of unemployed than mass.

texas has like 40 percent-just an observation. much more difficult for a romneycare plan to succeed.

gerrym51 on October 29, 2013 at 3:26 PM

Christie has zero chance of winning NY.

Your statement is sadly reminiscent of what people said about Romney, that he’d have a chance in liberal areas. Instead, he just depressed the base, we had a 6 million strong “missing white vote,” and Romney didn’t even come close to winning states like Michigan or MA, but he lost a host of states like Colorado and North Carolina. The Republican base would rebel if we had another liberal North Easterner (especially this big Obama hugger) leading the ticket, and the missing white vote in 2016 would be multiple times that of 2012. A complete wipe out.

“Climate change is real.. It’s time to defer to the experts.” -Chris Christie [said over a year after Climategate, after virtually all the other Republicans realized that these "experts" were politically (leftist) motivated and were caught red handed trying to dupe the public]

The real problem is that ObamaCare is socialized medicine giving a bloated government power over 20% of the economy, access to personal medical information about all citizens, and jurisdiction over life and death decisions resulting in an economic disaster and the impoverishment of Americans, mediocre to terrible health care for all but the wealthy and the political class, and death panels for those without the right political connections; it was written with contradictory provisions that give HHS and the President the ability to effectively rewrite the law as desired with regulations to administered without safeguards against fraud and identity theft by officials, some of whom are unqualified, poorly trained, and lack criminal background checks, who are inept and inefficient at best and corrupt at worst.

That’s the problem with just about everything in Washington and most of the media are complicit. How many media outlets have told their viewers that these so called immigration reform bills double legal immigration? Polls might show a majority want legalization, but they also want less immigration, not more.

AnotherJoe is dead right. Yes, Christie has a better chance of winning NY or NY than Cruz. But he won’t. Give those people a choice between a RINO who talks like a Democrat and the real thing, and they’ll always choose the real thing.

Saying Christie has a chance to win NY or NY is like saying John McCain is the New York Times’s favorite Republican. It’s meaningless. They may praise him and praise him, but the moment a Democrat runs against him….

Poll: 42% of Americans Identify With The “Extremist” Tea Party Politically, 42% With Obama…

Considering all the names they called the Tea Party (extremists, anarchists, hostage takers, racists etc.), I wonder what Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats have to say about this?

Via Rasmussen:

Voters are evenly divided when asked whether they agree more politically with President Obama or with the average member of the Tea Party. But an enormous partisan gap colors virtually all opinions of the Tea Party.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 42% of Likely U.S. Voters think the president’s views are closest to their own when it comes to the major issues facing the country. But just as many (42%) say their views come closest to those of the average Tea Party member instead. Sixteen percent (16%) are not sure.

I learned what this is in high school English: passive voice. It’s mealy-mouthed and doesn’t address the point.

It also fails to name the primary offender. From a politician’s viewpoint, this was an easy layup; slam someone without slamming anyone. To everyone else, especially journalists, it sounds like he’s trying to avoid directly saying what everybody is thinking, and some outlets (CBS) are saying out loud.

I love Ted Cruz, but honestly, I’d take Christie in a heartbeat over any Democrat. At least he’s not an America hating Marxist and a pathological liar who expects the media to cover for his lies. He has a big ego, but he expects to be judged by what he says, and not by what he does.

If the insider of all D.C. insiders named McAuliffe wins the gubernatorial race in my Commonwealth, I’m gonna start claiming to be from Tennessee. Terry McAuliffe is really a shady character in my book who has way too many ties with way too many “corrupticians” and has no business being in the state period, much less attempting to run it (into the ground, most likely.) By the way, this transplanted twerp is from Syracuse, NY.

Please, no.

You are right, f.l.a.g., Shrillary would love to see McAuliffe in VA to give her a little boost. After all, Terry was Billary’s money man back in the bad old days.

And, the really sad thing is that this race is not a “lesser of two evils” kind of race – it is a choice between a great evil who would completely destroy the state, and Cuccinelli who would be a great governor. One would think that the choice would be clear – and yet, the great evil continues to lead. Very disturbing.

The real problem with Obamacare is that it is a gross violation of individual rights, of patients and doctors. It is medicine at the point of a gun. The government forces medical providers to do as the government dictates and for the price they dictate, explicitly prohibiting the use his/her best judgement for the benefit of the patient for a fee that he/she and his patients agree on. Obamacare is a coercion on all individuals forced by unelected bureaucrats in government. It is literally the end of our medical freedom. This is NOT just about lies or web page problems. The GOP does not even know how to fight this battle. They haven’t yet understood the actual meaning of Obamacare.

Who helped give him bear-hug-love when he needed it the most cream puff?

Would have been good if Chris Christie told us how dishonest Obama was on November 1st 2012. Now is a bit too late. Clown.

In case you didn’t know, New Jersey ranked 33rd in unemployment when Christie took office. Now it ranks 43rd.

Christie is not good with timing of the truth. And not good at job creation either.
