Obama arrives in Dallas to make the case for Obamacare
Dallas Morning News ^ | November 6, 2013 | By Todd J. Gillman

Posted on 11/06/2013 4:13:32 PM PST by Oldeconomybuyer

As telegraphed, the president used the appearance to ramp up pressure on Gov. Rick Perry to expand Medicaid.

“There’s no state that actually needs this more than Texas,” Obama said. “…Here in just the Dallas area, 133,000 people who don’t currently have health insurance would immediate get health insurance without even having to go through the website” if Texas would just expand Medicaid.

He noted that neighboring states have done that because “this is a no-brainer.” Arkansas, alone, he said, cut the number of uninsured by 14 percent in the first month by expanding Medicaid.

“Across this state you’ve got a million people, because this is a big state, a million people – citizens – who don’t have health insurance that could get health insurance right away….

This looks like a pretty motivated group… I’m going to be right there with you the entire way” until everyone in Texas has affordable healthcare.

Why do they need Obamacare if they can just sign up for Medicaid?

Because it is a closed door affair for the community organizers that permeate Dallas.

“Arkansas, alone, he said, cut the number of uninsured by 14 percent in the first month by expanding Medicaid.”

Yes, because we know Medicaid doesn’t cost anyone anything and those enrolling are so deserving of our tax money......Spit!

And because our idiot governor listened to you because you pressured him. Hopefully, Mark Pryor will pay the price by losing his Senate seat because of it too!

“There’s no state that actually needs this more than Texas,” Obama said

RIGHT!

Because Texas NEEDS cancelled policies, tripled rates, higher deductibles, lowered standards of care, and a website that doesn't even work!

DESPERATELY!

Somehow, with people losing their insurance coverage through cancellations to be replaced by hideously expensive plans with even higher out-of-pocket costs and deductibles, Barry's not going to be very popular in the Lone Star State.

How many in Texas will lose their insurance? It seems their talking points are “people who never had insurance CAN get insurance”. They don’t say who pays for it.

Last night on Hannity they were talking about obama’s lies. Some dingbat actually said “Bush lied when he said Iraq had nukes.”

Too early?

I wouldn't put it past the regime to plot a stunt that would simultaneously

1. Wipe Obamacare criticism off the news forever
2. Cause plummeting poll numbers to suddenly soar into the stratosphere
3. Send Trayvon-nation into full assault mode
4. Upstage the 50th anniversary of wailing and gnashing of teeth
5. Supplant Camelot worship

Wasn't Obamacare pushed as a memorial to the Swimmer? How much more so in honor of its namesake? Especially if any life-saving treatment is falsely presented as being available only because of Obamacare.

To paraphrase Wednesday Addams:

"The gods of my tribe have spoken. They said, 'Do not trust the Demoncrats, especially Barak Obama.'"

“Dallas is good in November. Hope they brought the convertible.”

It was cloudy and icky this morning. The sun came out this afternoon but it was very cold for this time of year. Only about 55. I just hope somebody fumigated after he left.
