O'Reilly Busted For Health Insurance Premium Lies

Billy claims the Obama health care plan is to blame for the health insurance premium increases, for weeks he has been blaming it all on Obama. When that is a lie, and what's really happening is the insurance companies are just using that as an excuse to raise premiums.
Funny how O'Reilly just happened to never mention any of that, yeah right. He don't care if it's true or not, as long as he can use it to smear Obama and the health care plan he opposed, that is all he cares about.
And now the facts:
Insurance Companies Warned Not to Blame Hikes on Health Law
9-12-10 -- An investigation into the health insurers who are falsely hiking their costs will shortly be taking place. Those found to be making these false claims will be available for public view and not able to participate in the health insurance exchanges in 2014.
This is the warning that was given to health insurers by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a very strongly worded letter in response to the recent increase several companies are proposing.
She stated that there would be a zero-tolerance for those who blamed their increases on the new health care law. Representative Pete Stark, D-Calif., chairman of the House Ways and Means subcommittee on health, is also critical of the insurance industry.
Stark stated the following on Wednesday, "Insurers are using the consumer protections in health reform as a cover for their own greed."
Basically O'Reilly is a liar, for blaming the premium increases on the Obama health care plan, a plan that does not even take place until 2014 btw. And it's just more evidence that O'Reilly is a right-wing spin doctor who will use anything he can to smear President Obama. Once again he was caught using right-wing talking points to smear the President.
