Alternative Facts

A president can do great damage pushing "alternative facts." For example, the president might state as a fact that, "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan," while pushing a bill that makes thousands of plans illegal. Or he might state as a fact, "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor when every one knows if you loser your plan, you often have to change doctors." Or he might state as a fact, "your premiums will go down" when pushing a plan that covers many more people and requires extended coverage for things like birth control, knowing that all these things will cost more. not less. Or he might state as a fact," Benghazi was caused by a video," when he knew from the get go it was a terrorist attack." Or he might state as a fact, "I ended the war in Iraq," when he knew ISIS was gearing up to enlarge and spread the war. yes, alternative facts can be a problem. If the media isn't coving for you.
