Thanks for accepting.

My position is that Obama lied when, on June 15th, 2009, he said:

If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health-care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health-care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”1

Already, at least 1,519,000 people have been informed that they will lose their insurance,2 proving my case.

It means that I extend my arguments from a previous round to this round, since you haven't tried to refute them yet.

You can still play devil's advocate if you want to breathe back just a tiny of life into this thing that used to be a debate.

That's just it though, is you would be debating whether or not indirect, unintentional, by proxy lying, is actually lying. You can't really forward any evidence to that, as it's just a matter of opinion as to whether or not it counts as lying if it was direct and intended, or not.

And the purpose of this debate is to sway the voters towards our opinion on the issue :)

Now this is a debate!

That being said, I know what one of your points will be, and I honestly think it's a matter of opinion of whether or not he lied about it. It wouldn't be a very substantial debate.

I'm renaming this debate to focus specifically on the issue of keeping your insurance.

I mean, I can think of a couple things he lied about (keeping your insurance is not one of them), so I'm not in a rush to accept. I just thought you might have more luck if your resolution was specific.

Several important things which is why I call him a "huge liar."

Just waiting for acceptance. I don't see how it's too easy. I would think that Obama's supporters would enjoy the opportunity to disprove the claim that their president is a huge liar.
