Biden promotes free colonoscopies to seniors in Florida

In Florida this afternoon, Vice President Joe Biden reminded them that thanks to President Obama, they could now get colonoscopies without a co-pay.

During his speech, Biden reminded the audience that some of their Republican friends would distort Obama’s record on Medicare.

“Everyone knows, everyone in this room knows that President Obama has increased the benefits available to people on Medicare by the action he took,” Biden said. “You are now able to go get a wellness exam, and guys, if you conclude you need a colonoscopy because of the feeling you had or you need a breast health examination, you don’t have to pay a co-pay for that.”

Free?

No, someone paid for it.

This is theft. Also known as redistribution.

People on Medicare couldn’t get wellness exams before Obama was elected? Really?

Under Part B of Medicare today, you can get all the preventive services--colonoscopy, breast exam, diabetes screening, etc., without copay.

This is Obama’s entire campaign. You want free health exams.. go right ahead. You want to be a citizen of the United States..go right ahead. You want cell phones and Obama money..no problem, go right ahead. This is the problem. We are paying for ALL of this. Heck, we might as well be paying for his campaign. This has got to stop. OBAMA HAS SPENT ALMOST 7 TRILLION DOLLARS!!! VOTE THIS FOOL OUT BEFORE WE BECOME THE U.S.S.A
