Young People's Objections to Obamacare Called Selfish
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 6 Dec 2013 | John Semmens

Posted on 12/07/2013 7:08:43 AM PST by John Semmens

Polls indicating that Obamacare may be costing Democrats the youth vote sparked outrage from several sources. Representative Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (Fla), Chair of the Democratic National Committee, characterized concerns over the price as “selfish and misguided.”

“Those reacting negatively to insurance plans that double or triple their out-of-pocket costs for medical care are placing their own welfare ahead of society's,” she declared. “Maybe they think they're strong and healthy and don't need medication or therapy, but what about those who do?”

The Congresswoman urged young people to “not try to substitute their thinking for that of the government's experts. These experts have thoroughly reviewed the issue and determined that the collective well-being of the whole will be better served if the healthy young subsidize the sicker old.”

Over at the Department of Health and Human Services, Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to tackle what she called “youth obstinacy on this issue” by naming a video titled “Forget About the Price Tag” the grand prize winner in her agency's contest to encourage young people to sign up for Obamacare.

“Now is not the time for young people to be shopping for a better value for what they pay,” Sebelius advised. “Now is the time for them to willingly shoulder the burdens that government has assigned to them. You know, the so-called 'Greatest Generation' didn't question the role assigned to them by FDR. They accepted their task to defeat the Nazis, many of them at the cost of their own lives. We're not asking nearly as much. All we want is these young people's money. Why can't they simply do as we ask?”

These kids are immeasurably selfish. With the rate of inflation they will have to pay less than half of the debts we are incurring back. They will of course be overcharged by obmacare which will go into the general fund to be spent for the greater need of the people though the pork procedures. It is not like the gobernment took their money and lied like missing $13.4T gone out of Social Security.

The bottoming out of Great Leader’s poll numbers is indicative of his support. They talk the talk but don’t wish to put words to actions. My guess is that beyond a certain level (bumper-sticker / sloganeering), they don’t even understand what Great Leader wants for this nation. They can’t because they’re intellectually crippled by the educational system that produced them. What they understand is that when progressivism and redistribution comes out of their pockets, it sucks and is no longer fun. Suddenly, those evil conservatives may have a point. Yet, his former supporters still don’t understand what that point is.

I'm such a sucker for satire that I ate three Irish children after reading "A Modest Proposal" by Swift.

Then it is up to us "evil conservatives" to teach them what that point is. And we better get busy and start teaching them the truth of what makes America great because it's not enough to watch the growth in the number of "former supporters" and cheer from the sidelines. If we do nothing but that we will be seeing the RINO's swoop in and teach them only compromise repackaged to look like true Conservativism.

Funny, too close to the truth.

I wonder if the administration reads this stuff to develop their next round of talking points.

But isn’t that the standard marxist line? If you refuse to embrace whatever harebrained scheme Stalin comes up with today, you’re an “enemy of the state” or an “enemy of the great collective.”

“Remember the price tag” should become the new “Remember the Alamo.”

A) Young People are selfish.
B) Young People don’t want to spend money on useless junk. They want to spend it on Video Games, Booze, parties etc...
C) Young People are fickle—Obama is Old Hat now—why support him?
D) Some young people see this like the draft of long ago—a manditory “Tax”.
E) Problem—young people are not the unselfish New Communist Man—who will give all to bring about Utopia—and the worker’s Paradise.

WHERE DID THE OBAMACARE WEBSITE DOUGH GO?????

Hannity recently had two PROFESSIONAL web site developers on his TV show. He asked them both how much they might have charged to construct a secure web site that functioned as necessary from the git go: Their TOP figure was around $10 million!!

That's much more than one well respected US IT firm offered to do the project for: THEY'D HAVE DONE IT FOR FREE!!

Compare those to the estimated $1 BILLION this SOB has shuttled to his cronies for this turkey and I think even the most devoted obozo worshiper can grasp the magnitude of the CORRUPTION in this on-going CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE!!! (Well that's almost certainly an overstatement...)

WHERE THE HELL IS CONGRESS IN ALL OF THIS?

ANSWER: On their computers checking their numbered Swiss accounts to be certain the proper amount was deposited!!!!

IF THIS DOESN'T P.I.S.S. Y.O.U. O.F.F. you aren't paying attention and you're certainly too stupid to vote.

We need an angry electoral tsunami to sweep the parasites on the Potomac OUT of Malfunction Junction in the next cycles and replace them with men and women who have READ and UNDERSTAND the CONSTITUTION!! Anything short of that and we're TOAST!!

How delightfully ironic and fitting that the very skulls-full-of mush critical thinking impaired morons who aided and abetted getting this usurper-n-thief and his ongoing criminal enterprise into the Spite House are now having their stupid little asses handed to them by his worshipfulness!

Hey, dorks...PAYBACK'S A BITCH!!!!!

And what scares hell out of me is that most of these fools will probably line up behind Killery in 2016 BECAUSE SHE ISN'T OBOZO!

NO, KIDDIES, SHE'LL BE WORSE. FAR WORSE!!

For all that "edumacation”, these “chillren” are terminally slow learners.

We have to take things away from people for the common good.

People need to understand they have been spoiled by freedom and that needs to come to an end.
