Never lied to you. Not gonna start today.

Recently, President Obama tapped Bill Clinton to “explain” Obamacare to America. Today, Clinton gave his first pitch, reading from a prepared text as he promised America they’d love Obamacare so much that the government had to make it mandatory in order to improve everybody’s life story:

Former President Bill Clinton said Wednesday that the role of government is to “empower people to have better life stories” by working with the private sector, NGOs, and citizens, and Obamacare helps achieve that goal.

“I have believed all my life that the role of government was to work with the private sector and non-governmental groups and communities and ordinary citizens, essentially to empower people to have better life stories. And that’s what this whole issue is about,” Clinton said in a speech explaining Obamacare in Little Rock, Ark.

“The role of government is to work with the private sector and non-governmental groups and communities and ordinary citizens, essentially to empower people to have better life stories”? Now why didn’t the Founders phrase it like that?

Apparently America’s “better life story” starts by getting work hours cut.

Related Clinton story: It depends on what your definition of “vegan” is.
