A successful fraudulent inducement claim requires a claimant to establish that it “reasonably relied” upon promises of future conduct made by another party.
We all heard Obama’s claims countless times. A vote for the Democrats and support of the Affordable Care Act would not impact you negatively. If you already had insurance liked your plan you could keep it. Don’t worry you wouldn’t have to find a new doctor or change your current health insurance policy. The MSM, social media, cable news all have his claims on tape. There were NO equivocations, you could keep your plan…PERIOD! With the failed website and the possibility that as many as 15,000,000 will lose the plans they liked and their doctors as well, we all know the cynical lies repeated by Obama and his team. Team Obama lied knowing that if the truth were really told to the American people that Obamacare, now refereed to as the Unaffordable Care Act, would never pass. So, many in Congress voted for Obamacare based on the promises and representations of the Obama administration. The American people re-elected this man based on the same fake promises. Worse still, it has come to light the Obama knew as far back as 2010 what he was pitching to sell Ocare was little more than a load a horse manure.
THIS IS ACTUAL FRAUD
Findlaw defines fraud as any act, expression, omission, or concealment calculated to deceive another to his or her disadvantage.
The key words in this definition are calculated to deceive. The heart of this type of fraud is misleading the other party as to the facts upon which he/she will base his/her decision to act. Misrepresentation causes one to enter a transaction without accurately realizing the risks, duties, or obligations incurred. Sound like the promises Obama has been making since 2010 and before?
Did Obama not verbally make false representations? Did he not knowingly conceal the truth about people losing their health care plans? Clarence Page, Chicago Tribune columnist and long time supporter of the president and his policies thinks Obama’s lies were political lies and that somehow makes it OK!
