First lady Michelle Obama on Friday joined in the battle over Obamacare, talking up her husbands health-care program after a rough rollout and taking on those behind the government shutdown.
When a small group of folks in Congress shuts down our government to try to shut down Obamacare, and we watch as our President stands strong, thats not just some political fight in Washington it is a battle about our most fundamental values and aspirations, the first lady told the audience at the Womens Leadership Forum Conference in Washington, D.C.
[I]f youre not happy about what youve seen in Congress lately, if you dont like seeing folks in state government trying to undermine Obamacare or chip away at womens rights and womens health, then I urge you lets not just sit around feeling angry or helpless or hopeless, especially not [as] women, she added. Because there is something that all of you can do right now today to make a huge difference: You can write a check. Thats what we need you to do right now. We need you to write a big old check. (Laughter.) Write the biggest check you can possibly write.
The first lady did not mention the recent problems with HealthCare.gov, which has been a growing headache for the administration since the launch of the website on Oct. 1.
Instead, Obama emphasized expanded benefits made available by the Affordable Care Act.
I think its important for us to all remember who exactly is benefitting from this new law. They are folks who come from all across the country, who come from all different backgrounds and walks of life. Theyre the spouses of our veterans - folks who are working around the clock caring for their loved ones wounded in war, yet who dont have insurance themselves.
The wookie speaks, and is still irrelevant.
I ws wondering why we haven’t heard from the Ebony Yeti for a couple of months
The wookie speaks, and is still irrelevant.
Just make damn sure your not behind it when it rips one!
She has quite the ample posterior for a 60 yard field goal KICK!!! A wookie field goal from 60 yards with a steel toe boot!!!
“I think its important for us to all remember who exactly is benefitting from this new law.”
Your college pals.
The left seems to have mastered the art of the endless election season -- whether its actually election time or not, they fundraise and campaign.
If they are working around the clock caring for wounded vets, then they have Champ VA, which is 100% coverage through the VA. If their wounded Veteran is 100% disabled.
So says the ebony bitch who is exempted from her deathcare plan.
Hey Michelle, go stuff your face with a double bacon cheeseburger you disgusting b*tch
> The wookie speaks, and is still irrelevant.
Yep tells everyone how to live their lives but doesnt’t do any of it herself because she’s the queen and enjoys telling the serfs what to do.
How surprising. A wife defends her husband.
No other First Lady in the history of this Republic has ever been as vocal on so many topics as this woman.
Hang. Them. All.
All this over a damn fag.
The First Animal speaks. Funny, I just don’t remember previous First Ladies being as brazenly partisan as this beast has been. And the begging for money... sheesh. Pathetic.
That’ll do pig.
Seen this? Via Drudge

The Captain of the Titanic stood strong.
Unlike the Captain, Obama wouldn’t go down with the ship he doomed.
He would be in the first Life Boat like the Captain of the Concordia.
If only all those poor Folks could get a $300,000 a Year no show Job like Moochelle got after Barry was Elected State Senator in Illinois.
By the way, the rats are absolutely beside themselves that the “Republican government shutdown” (remember that?) has been shuffled off to oblivion thanks to the Mengelecare rollout debacle. The rats are doing everything they can to remind people about that every chance they get, and that’s why Moochelle is beating that “shutdown” drum here.
The rats are fighting an uphill battle - - the shutdown is old news, lol!
Write a big old check?
The Class just drips out of her like pus from an infected wound.
Her title was "Diversity Coordinator" for some Chicago hospital. I wonder what connected Chicago mobster has that no-show "job" now?
Who the hell is she? I don’t know one person who voted for her. She needs to just shut the hell up. There are millions of AMERICANS who aren’t ready to give up America yet.
I don’t negotiate with terrorists or listen to their concubines.
I bet Hiilary comes in a close second that hag wont go awau either.
I think its important for us to all remember who exactly is benefitting from this new law.
So, write a check ya’ll, a big check!
Made out to me, Michele Obama...
So who made her president?
And the begging for money... sheesh. Pathetic.
That’s the nature of GRIFTERS, they’ll take
your money as long as you have any, right up
till they think it’s time to git.
She’s a real life Walker. Vile _itch.
In the end, President Obama was unwilling to delay the individual mandate or make federal employees exempt from Obamacare. If you agree with Obama that this request from the GOP was too radical, then you believe the GOP caused the shutdown. If you think the GOP’s requests were reasonable, then you blame Obama for the shutdown.
even though Obama and his media whores convinved America the GOP were the cause of the shutdown, it’s extremely ironic that a delay in implementation is exactly what we need. Perhaps the media could have uncovered the ‘glitches’ and informed an ignorant public before jumpig on the it’s ‘the GOP’s Shutdown’ bandwagon?
In any case, the Dems continue to harken back to the shutdown like it was the ‘good old days.’ I still think the average uniformed voter would be shocked to learn the shutdown was over the mess we are now living through.
Thus spake Aunt Esther.....
This grifter worst lady should only be talking from a prison cell. The fat fool should shut her pie-hole.
A Biter too! I’ve seen her tucking into cheeseburgers like they were Ritz crackers.
She has the table manners of a Biter, too.
Mooch, the nick says it all. Plus, she needs a reality check.
I’d love to see her limited to bologna and cheese sandwiches.
Well Moochelle, women WILL be writing a big old check, but it won't be to Barackruptcy Obummer .... because "Healthy young women will see their premiums rise by an average of almost 200 percent under Obamacare, with increases occurring in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, according to a new study." ObamaCare Doubles Premiums for Young Women
“...it is a battle about our most fundamental values and aspirations...”
Which would be insuring that all Americans are put on the government plantation.
FU Fugly b!tch!
Wow, how low America has fallen.
All this over a damn flag.....
Gosh! Someone needs to photoshop barry and moochelle as homeless bums begging for money.
When we watch as a small group of folks in Congress stands strong, and our President shuts down our government to keep Obamacare 100% intact and on-schedule, thats not just some political fight in Washington it is a battle about our most fundamental values and aspirations,
85% of people signing up are new MEDICAID enrollees! funded by taxpayers and the HIGHER premiums for the FEW working folks who are stuck with paying for it.
Why the hell are we paying for ANYTHING else for a bunch of lazy asses?!
I just found out today that welfare recipients can use their welfare card at the nail salon! I saw it happen! I about lost it....
