"My Job Is To Tell the Truth"

Despite President Obama's repeated and categorical promises that Americans could keep health plans that they liked, many will have to switch.  This development has raised questions about his candor.

In a debate on January 15, 2008, Senator Barack Obama said:
So my job is to tell the truth, to be straight with the American people about how I intend to end climate change, what I’m going to do with respect to providing health care for every American, how we’re going to provide tax relief to hard-working Americans who are really feeling the pinch, and to present my vision for where the country needs to go.

If I’m doing that effectively, then I place my trust in the American people that they will sort out the lies from the truth, and they will make a good decision.
