Skip to comments.Obama Refuses to Pledge He'd Accept Health Care Plan Limits On *His Own* Family
Posted on 06/25/2009 6:46:24 AM PDT by quesney
Elites often propose health care solutions that limit options for the general public, secure in the knowledge that if they or their loves ones get sick, they will be able to afford the best care available, even if it's not provided by insurance.
Devinsky asked the president pointedly if he would be willing to promise that he wouldn't seek such extraordinary help for his wife or daughters if they became sick and the public plan he's proposing limited the tests or treatment they can get.
The president refused to make such a pledge, though he allowed that if "it's my family member, if it's my wife, if it's my children, if it's my grandmother, I always want them to get the very best care.

Governmet crap -- Good enough for you and yours, not for me and mine.
Don’t count on any charges of “hypocrisy” swaying any leftists away from full support of 0bama.
Leftists don’t even believe in the concept when it comes to their “elite” (of which they all consider themselves part of).
If you want to understand the mindset, think FEUDALISM. They are the nobility, the masses are the peasants. Different rules and laws for both groups.
In their viewpoint:
It is entirely DESIRABLE for them to have different rules.
And, it is entirely NECESSARY for them not to be constrained by the rules place on us. Constraining them would hinder their implementation (imposition) of their “superior vision” on the rest of us.
Its good to be King
“Its good to be King”
It sure is. Let them eat cake.
An excellent question to ask every congress critter.
Multiple times a day.
By scores of reporterettes and constituents.
If the Republicans don’t run with this they are lamer than I thought.
No offense but I had to click on the article to go read it to believe this audacity.
Public school for thee- private school for my kids
WHO IN THE HECK wants obama and his legion of bureaucrats making health care decisions for them?????
Our slogan should be....If it ain’t good enough for the President and the Congress, it ain’t good enough for us.
Now just exactly what would this thug’s “pledge” mean anyway?
The GOP is pretty lame. Too many of them believe that if one foot is cut off, they should cut off the other one to be more balanced.
I can understand a PRESIDENT sending his kids to a better, more easily secured school.
But it isn’t because he’s president that he’s demanding different rules for his family - it’s because he’s an elitist.
Exactly right. Kudos. (Whatever kudos means).
And the reason that leftists and liberals cling to their political views is because of social anxieties. they are continuallyin a state of status panic. To accept reason and/or conservative ideas means a loss of social status. That’s it.
Never be surprised. This is exactly what you get when you have the media not doing their job. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Obama is heading down that path as no one is keeping him in check.
This idiot needs to be impeached yesterday.
If we apply Obama’s health care argument to schools... if public insurance is needed to keep private insurance honest, aren’t private school vouchers needed to keep public schools honest?
Sure sounds like “Two Americas” to me.
