The short version of this story: Obama says “are you going to believe me or your lying eyes?”

President Obama said Tuesday that Americans were wrong to doubt his signature healthcare reform law, saying concerns over rising costs or worsening health outcomes were not supported by the evidence.

In an interview with Telemundo on Tuesday, the president was asked if “everybody [was] wrong” after polling data indicated that a majority of Americans oppose the law and believe it will raise their healthcare costs.

“Yes,” the president said with a chuckle. “They are.”

On Monday, Obama said there is “no serious evidence” that Obamacare is holding back the economy. Other than the fact that every day there are more examples of hiring freezes, layoffs and slashed hours as well as panicked union leaders personally begging him for exemptions from the law?
