White House adviser David Axelrod is going to try to start his own viral e-mail responding to attacks on Obamacare. It will include responses to eight myths about Obamacare, and since I know all of you come to IMAO as your primary news source, I obtained those myths and the White Houses response so you can see them here:
MYTHS AND FACTS ABOUT OBAMACARE
MYTH: Obamacare will institute death panels to judge who should live and who should die.
FACT: People deciding who will live and who will die will be single Obama-appointed bureaucrats, so no panels are involved.
MYTH: Obamacare will kill your grandma.
FACT: Your grandma will die from a natural condition that Obamacare will refuse to treat.
MYTH: Obamacare will lead to rationing.
FACT: Procedures will be eliminated wholesale instead of rationed.
MYTH: Obamacare will make me wait weeks or months for necessary medical procedures.
FACT: If youre waiting that long, then obviously a qualified individual like Barney Frank or Nancy Pelosi decided the procedure wasnt necessary.
MYTH: Obamacare will be financed by cutting Medicare.
FACT: Obamacare will be financed by eliminating Medicare recipients.
MYTH: While many people will be forced onto the substandard public option, members of Congress will get a separate, much better plan.
FACT: They will be on the same plan, but on a much much higher tier than will be made available to the hoi polloi.
MYTH: Obamacare will be extremely costly and result in putting the country even further in debt.
FACT: There is no confirmation of this, as the solar-powered calculator Obama tried to use to calculate the cost only allowed numbers up to the tens of billions.
MYTH: Obamacare will finance abortions with tax dollars for folks on the public option.
FACT: Technically, we will borrow those dollars from the Chinese, no tax dollars will be involved.
I was surprised this wasn’t already posted.
I know there are at least a couple of Frank J. fans here.
The frogs have been in the pot for a long time. But now that the heat is turned up with the threat of their very lives and freedom on the line, those frogs are jumping OUT of that pot in record numbers and making their voices heard. Go America, land of the FREE and home of the BRAVE!!
