Holding Democrats Accountable For Obama’s State Of The Union Promises

As Obama prepares to deliver the 2014 State Of The Union address, it’s worth remembering that House and Senate Democrats are accountable for his words.Indeed, it’s worth remembering that it wasn’t too long ago in a previous State of the Union, that Obamaissued the same broken promise of “if you like your plan you can keep it” – PolitiFact’s Lie Of The Year. Also from the same podium, we heard that the health law would reduce premiums and costs for Americans. Following these speeches, House and Senate Democrats went back to their constituents and repeated Obama’s promises verbatim. Now that the health law’s harmful impacts are harder to deny and Democrats are reluctant to even appear with Obama at campaign events, the 2014 State Of The Union will be a reason to keep a watchful eye not only on Obama’s words but also how they are carried forth by his fellow Democrats.
