Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic.

ObamaCare is so unpopular, that Democrats in Congress who voted for it are lying about what it actually says. Take for instance Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL). She told a town hall meeting recently that ObamaCare does not require Americans to purchase a health insurance.

As Michael F. Cannon opines at Cato’s @Liberty blog, ‘Rep. Wasserman Schultz’s announcement came as a surprise to those of us familiar with the bill, which added to Subtitle D of the Internal Revenue Code a new Chapter 48, whose first section (Section 5000A) is titled, “REQUIREMENT TO MAINTAIN MINIMUM ESSENTIAL COVERAGE” (see p. 126; all-caps in original). Subparagraph (b)(3) even provides for “PAYMENT OF PENALTY” if you don’t comply with the “REQUIREMENT”.’

With all due respect, but does she actually think that she can get away with lying about this bill? Americans know what’s in it; that’s why it’s so unpopular. Nice try Rep. Wasserman Schultz, better luck next time.
