Just another case of Team Obama not caring about the truth, so long as what someone says supports Obama's agenda:
A Des Moines woman who publicly thanked President Barack Obama on Tuesday for helping her obtain health insurance actually is receiving her coverage through a long-standing state program.
ked to share her story as an introduction to a Michelle Obama speech Tuesday in Windsor Heights. She talked about losing her health insurance when she lost her job as a lawyer two years ago. She bought private coverage for her two children, she said, but could not find it for herself.
"No one would insure me because of my pre-existing conditions. No one. Until President Obama stood up for me and millions of Americans like me across Iowa and across the country," she said.But it turns out that Ibson was lying because in fact, her current coverage is provided by HIP Iowa, a state program for people whose health problems make them ineligible for most commercial insurance.
As the report goes on to note, Ibson now claims that she didn't mean to imply that her current coverage was provided by the new federal health reform program ... yet this didn't stop her from purposefully misleading the crowd by "publicly thanking President Barack Obama on Tuesday for helping her obtain health insurance."
