Tone-deaf Jay Carney prefaces Obamacare tweet with ‘FACT’

We’re certain that White House Press Secretary Jay Carney is happy for the chance to dip his toes into the relatively safe waters of Obamacare, but now we’re wondering if the Affordable Care Act covers tone-deafness. It was only two days ago that Carney kept questioning “if” reports of the IRS targeting conservatives were true — despite the IRS itself having admitted it. And just last week TV viewers and the press watched Carney turn red while repeating a long-debunked lie about Benghazi that received four Pinocchios from the Washington Post.

So is today the best day for Carney to start spouting “FACT”?

Here’s a good question to kick off Carney’s next press briefing.

  • NRPax

    Never mind that you can still get coverage with a pre-existing condition. Inconvenient facts like that get in the way of the health plan that you’re forced to pay for!

    • Roto

      And that pre-existing condition clauses don’t start until 2014.

      • NRPax

        We really need to stop with these facts. They’ll make Carney cry.

  • Jeremy

    Jay Carney lies so often he wouldn’t even know what a fact is.

    • ICOYAR

      The same could be said about every Liberal.

    • Billie Slash

      Does protecting a lame duck president make him an assquack??

      • Jeremy

        yeah that works.

      • Jeremy

        yeah that works.

    • lainer51

      depends on what your definition of “fact” is..
      thanks Bubba.

  • independentjones

    FACT: Jay Carney is a liar, a clown and an @ss.

    • stuckinIL4now

      He’s an @ss wipe too.

      • Meech204

        And a Dill Weed

    • lainer51

      hence a lying assclown…….

  • BlahBlah

    Is your stupid considered a pre-existing condition under ObamaCare?

    • Guest

      Yes, unless the diagnosis is “shallow gene pool.”

  • Kevin

    Right, it’s the law… So what, doesn’t make it a good one just because it squeaked by.

    • PAttyconservatopia

      Slavery used to be the law also…………..

      • NRPax

        And lucky us! It’s back again!

  • RblDiver

    FACT: Repealing Obamacare could mean up to 8 billion people could be denied coverage…because companies shouldn’t be forced to accept anyone. But does this mean they will? Scary statements mean nothing Carney.

  • BigTBoom

    “Facts” containing the word “could’ aren’t very persuasive…like this one:
    Fact…I COULD win the PowerBall Jackpot Saturday!

  • grais

    FACT : “…up to 120 million Americans…could be…”

    might mean “…perhaps one will be, maybe…”

    He didn’t actually lie, but I bet he’s hoping hysterical, illiterate dimbulbs will conclude, and repeat that “120 million Americans WILL be….”

    • Clayton Grant

      I’m sure a lot of people on here caught that. “Could” can apply to any hypothetical.

      • grais

        And ‘up to’ means the # could be zero.
        He’ll get the knuckleheads screaming what he wants, though.

    • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

      Not to mention when they were campaigning the number of people was 30 million.

  • RightFinShark

    If nothing else works, a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through.

  • detroit19

    FACT: already living the reality of increased healthcare premiums (65% so far).

  • Steve_J

    Either way it doesn’t do Smith, Woods, Stevens, or Doherty any good.

  • gekkobear

    314 million Americans.

    129 million have a severe pre-existing condition affecting their health to the point they’d be rejected under the old rules for insurance?

    41% of us may be dying, soon… assuming Jay can do math correctly. That might affect the economy… maybe that’s the jobs plan? Hope those numbers are right?

    * edit, had 120, not 129 in my initial post; corrected the math

    • Red Fred

      Superb!!

  • regmgr

    Just another example of a delusional punk speaking for a delusional administration. Even some low information voters believe he’s not always got his facts straight.

  • TocksNedlog

    Jay, you lost me at “FACT”.

  • tjp77

    And cutting the budget by 2% will cause ELEVENTY TRILLION people to lose their jobs and turn to cannibalism.

    • TexSizzle

      It wasn’t even a cut in spending, just a cut in the increase in spending. By their logic, if you’re supposed to get a raise of $100 and you only get a raise of $98, your salary was cut by $2.

  • W Randall

    I don’t trust anyone who uses the words “FACT” and “COULD BE” in the same sentence.

    • Roto

      Exactly…. only a stupid Obama voter would write that.

    Carney lives up to his own name.

  • louisiana_mom

    FACT: Keeping Obama care will mean anyone with a per-existing condition will be have their healthcare determined by a death panel…

    Memo to Water Boy Clown Car Carney:

    The word, “FACT” from a liberal’s lips equals “A LIE!”

    FACT: Using “Fact” and “Could” in the same sentence is remarkably unproductive.
    FACT: Impeaching Obama COULD solve all of the nation’s problems

    • ratizbad

      WINNER!…. America will be America,,Not Kenya or NK

    • kenai

      I’m genuinely curious, Eric. How would impeaching Obama solve anything given the current makeup of the Senate? What purpose would impeaching him serve?

  • ELC

    All Jay knows is how to TRY to cover up his bosses lies with his own. Wait till barryboy doesn’t need him anymore…all that loyalty will go right where it belongs(where the sun doesn’t shine). I will say though..that when barryboy discharges him of his press secretary duties…Ringling Brothers will be looking for him. They have the clown costume ready and waiting.

  • trixiewoobeans

    FACT: It’s so bad, he and Congress are exempt from it!

    FACT: Repealing Obamacare would mean up to 129 million Americans with pre-existing conditions could be denied coverage.

    A lot of good that “coverage” will do them when there are no doctors.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    FACT:Eight Months was NOT “A long time ago.” #RightWard Jawamax 8<{D}

  • Oschlama

    what he meant to say, “FACT: Repealing Obamacare would mean up to 129 million North Americans, who are actually Mexicans, with pre-existing conditions could be denied coverage.”

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Given his profuse lying and obfuscation, what makes Jay Carney think that he is even remotely relevant to any discussion that involves facts or the truth?

  • Bill Board

    FACT: Carney, Obama, Clinton and Holder are all useless liars.

  • porgiefirefighter

    In the world of Jay Carney, “FACT” means “LIE”

  • Axelgreaser

    STOP ASSUMING THE LIES ARE CORNEY’S! Jay ‘Corney’ is nobody. He is speaking for Obama, NOT for himself. Does anyone think Jarret, Axelrod and Obama are going to allow anyone to say anthing other that what they hired them to say? Obama is running the Obama show and all the criminality that goes along with it,ie, the HORRIFIC IRS CRIME AGAINST THE PEOPLE. If Obama is indeed ‘unaware’ of one scandalous crime after another that HE is responsible for, then he truly is a dangerous, unengaged Hollywood Star F****r and Rap Rat who has no business impersonating a ‘Commander In Chief.”

    “”Americans have a right to be angry … and I am angry!” Oh, please, girl.

    They care so much they’re taking over everything. Unfortunately, they’re grossly incompetent, drunky spendaholics with a terminal case of self-interest and they all suffer from some kind of pathological lying disease. #forward

    Oh, we’re playing the fact game? Okay…

    FACT: Obamacare costs more than Democrats promised. No wait, wrong word. Obamacare costs more than Democrats *insisted* it would.

    FACT: As it happens, despite what Obama said, odds are you won’t be able to keep your own insurance.

    FACT: Numerous businesses are downgrading employees to part-time (if not outright firing them) to get around the hefty costs.

    FACT: Premiums keep going up, contrary to what has been said since day one.

    FACT: Democrats gave themselves exemptions to this boondoggle.

    FACT: Max Baucus opted not to seek another Senate term after meeting with Kathleen Sebelius about implementation and summing up what he heard as “a train-wreck.”

    FACT: Jay Rockefeller helped write the law he now describes as “beyond comprehension” and has also ‘coincidentally’ decided not to seek another Senate term.

    FACT: Team Obama never provided any guidelines for building the exchanges, prompting a number of governors (Republican and Democrat) to take a pass on doing the hard work for them.

    FACT: Team Obama refuses to release any major details of its rollout plan, which Senate Democrats and their aides have referred to as not a good sign.

    FACT: Obamacare has been consistently unpopular since 2010, meaning Congressional Democrats surely want Carney to shut the hell up.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Two facts and the truth walked into a D.C. bar. Saw Jay Carney prepping for a press conferences and ran out screaming.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Jay Carney and Piers Morgan. Carney finally found someone spewing more lies and bullshit than him. A liars match made in heaven.
