Skip to comments.Obama's 17 Minute, 14 Second Answer on Higher Taxes and Health Care
Posted on 04/02/2010 1:22:13 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
QUESTION: Thank you, Mr. President. We're honored to have you here today. I'm Joyce Ravis (ph) from Lake Wiley, South Carolina. I work at Celgard. We have wonderful CEOs that take care of us and have really helped the company grow.
My question is, though, in the economy times that we have now, is it a wise decision to add more taxes to us with the health care, because it -- we are over-taxed as it is?
OBAMA: Well, let's talk about this, you know, because this is an area where there's been just a whole lot of misinformation. And I'm going to have to work hard over the next several months to clean up a lot of the misapprehensions that people have.
Here's the bottom line. Number one is that we are the only -- we have been, up until last week, the only advanced country that allows 15 million of its citizens to not have any health insurance. ...
So if you're concerned about the deficit, what you're really concerned about is the cost of Medicare, Medicaid and all the other programs that are already in place...
Most of the budget is Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid, defense spending and interest on the national debt. That -- that accounts for about 70 percent of the budget. And so all this other stuff that sometimes we argue about, that's not the big stuff. We're going to have to tackle the big stuff if we're going to get our budget under control.
Boy, that was a long answer. I'm sorry, but I hope everybody -- but I hope I answered her question.

The man is a sack of s...er Obama.
A lying, sleazy, ill-educated, and completely dishonest sack of Obama.
Man, this guy loves to hear himself talk. Pretty soon, he may be the only one.
And he thinks we are all idiots and don’t notice that he did NOT answer the simple question.
17 Minutes, 14 Seconds of malicious lies on Higher Taxes and Health Care
“Well, let’s talk about this, you know, because this is an area where there’s been just a whole lot of misinformation...”
Everytine Obummer lies he starts it with this statement.AWB
Yeah...it's called liberty, Barry. Americans have fought and died for it for two centuries.
"Most of the budget is Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid, defense spending and interest on the national debt"
Those first three things shouldn't even exist, Barry. Wind those programs out of existence and the Federal budget will look a LOT better.
Its a long-winded bill.
Requiring everyone to have insurance would take about two pages. The other 2398 pages are about control of an industry they don’t know the first thing about, except that they know they want to control it.
Arrogant, pompous, narcissistic, sociopath.
The devil is in that little detail right there. See, if you are NOT ALLOWED (because Zero Care has passed), who is the one with the AUTHORITY to dictate this? That's right folks, it isn't you.
And, if you can control healthcare, you control it all.
Wait a minute, the number is 15 million now? What happened to all the others?
She should have pulled a Bret Baier.
Too much with this guy. You need one of those linguistic forensics guys after everytime he opens his mouth.
Did he really say “misapprehensions”?
Amazing arrogance. Pride comes before a fall.
I think we are only going to see 15 million get picked up since the Muslims are exempt.
I don’t think he answered the question! He rambled on and on about the healthcare plan, but I believe the question of taxing the over-taxed was not answered. Frankly, I’m not so sure he knew what the question was by the time he got done (not) answering it.
This is a tactic guys. Obama has been educated in the art of propaganda in the same way he took on that hypnotic cadence during the election, and also said things like “You will get in that voting booth and a light will come over you and you will vote for Barack Obama” (note he did not say “me”, but “Barack Obama” because this was a hypnotic instruction and “me” wouldn’t be an option on the ballot).
So this 20 minute answer style is designed to confuse and bore the person for their mind to wander, but naturally you will be so enamored with the APPEARANCE of his ‘knowledge’ that you will concede he must be right because no one would talk so much about a subject unless they were certain... and so he ‘wins’ the argument without saying a damn thing.
My father was fascinated by hypnosis, subliminal messaging and such throughout his life. He picked up on Obama’s style of speeches and the little things he said that someone not familiar with that concept would not pick up.
The object of all things is government control and siphoning money to the Fed gov....
Oh yeah, the Muslims. Who could forget them? LOL He’s such a liar that I’m starting to picture Jon Lovitz everytime he opens his mouth. “Yeah, that’s the ticket...”
I dont hink he ansewred he question about being over taxed did he?
All of that to say we will tax you more?
15 million without insurance. I thought it was 30 million. Did the magic negro get 15,000,000 people insured by the signing of the law?
!7 minutes and he didn't say anything.
So why add big things like health care. I suppose the best way to get health care under control is to not have any. Take two aspirin and don't call me in the morning is cost effective.
I am really getting tired of seeing this guy in front of cheering sycophants. There is no way this is a representative audience. Why does FOX (I know there is no hope for the rest of the slimes) not do a check on these people and how they got in.
'Misapprehensions' to the Kenyan are female taxpayers.
The list, ping
i can not put into writing how i really feel...and what i wish for!
I can. I really really hate these socialist who are now controlling this once proud Republic. And, I wish for their political demise - the sooner the better.
.....And the Right to Free (Conservative) Speech
.....And the Right to Bear Arms
.....And Free Commerce
.....And Property Rights
Obama isn't settling for JUST Healthcare, He's going for it ALL.
What would he do, then?
LOL, with a mirror in front of him!
Having read the response, I believe the above to be an unerringly accurate statement.
