Only when his lips are moving

Reason asks the question: Can Obama open his mouth without lying about health care?

To sum up: The president said he “didn’t campaign on the public option,” but it turns out he did. He said that there wasn’t any “gap” between his campaign promises and the final result, but it turns out there were several, as detectable by the most cursory Google search. He said “every single criteria for reform I put forward is in this bill,” but it turns out they’re not.

This kind of brazen bullshit may play with Ezra Klein, but I can’t imagine most other Americans enjoy being lied to every day.
