We all know that Obama's word has a very short expiration date. To help us keep track of just how short, Jim Geraghty at National review Online has compiled 33 already expired promises.
Here's a sample:
HEALTH CARE MANDATES
STATEMENT: "We've got a philosophical difference, which we've debated repeatedly, and that is that Senator Clinton believes the only way to achieve universal health care is to force everybody to purchase it. And my belief is, the reason that people don't have it is not because they don't want it but because they can't afford it." Barack Obama,speaking at a Democratic presidential debate, February 21, 2008.
EXPIRATION DATE: On March 23, 2010, Obama signed the individual mandate into law.
