Skip to comments.First lady: Signing up for Obamacare should be New Year's resolution (ROTFLMAO -- Again)

First lady Michelle Obama encouraged young people to sign up for Obamacare, telling them that enrolling in the health law's new insurance exchanges should be a New Year's resolution.
This act provides a safety net for millions and millions of Americans but we have to take the next step to go check it out, sign up and make sure that we're covered, said Mrs. Obama in an interview for the The Joe Madison Show on Sirius XM Radio. That should be our New Year's resolutions to ourselves.
The first ladys interview was one of three radio spots as the administration looks to boost enrollment in Obamacare ahead of a Dec. 23 deadline for consumers to receive insurance at the start of 2014.
The administration is scrambling to sign up consumers in insurance exchanges after the glitch-ridden launch of the healthcare.gov website in October led to lower than expected sign-ups and undercut public support for Obama's signature domestic achievement.
On Wednesday, the first lady and President Obama met with mothers in the White House and touted the role they play in making health care decisions for their families. The administration is courting mothers to encourage them to sign up their spouses and children, and touting the health law as the only way to cover all family members.
Theres something about moms, said the president at the event. No. 1, theyve got credibility generally; No. 2, women often times are the ones who are making the health care decisions of the family; No. 3, moms can tell young people who think theyre invincible that theyre not and prod them to at least get information.
In the interview, the first lady said that signing up for Obamacare would give families peace of mind and stressed the need to be covered in the event of an unexpected illness.
Find out how to get yourself covered so you dont have an unexpected incident that bankrupts you, puts you in debt for the rest of your life. Thats the major cause of bankruptcy in this country today: it's health care bills, said Mrs. Obama.
People do think theyre invincible and then they are hit by an unexpected medical emergency and they are paying hundreds of thousands of dollars. Theyve got bill collectors chasing them down right now, she added.
Because of Obamacare no one has to go through that, said the first lady. Its that peace of mind that the [Affordable Care Act] provides and every American and, particularly in our community, we deserve that kind of protection.
These people have to get on the same page.
Wait. Dumb metaphor. Assumes they can read.
Leftists are masters at marketing and strategizing.
Plus they keep repeating that Obamacare will work wonders, people will start believing it.
Man. Who writes their material? These folks are hilarious. This is all satire right? I mean they’re not really serious are they? LOL!
And who keeps their New Years Resolutions?????
How do I spend the cold days of December?
Out in the cold and mud of December, making money to pay for my own damned stuff while dragging a a cartful of lazy-assed liberals sitting around in their Onesies
By sharing, we mean...you working suckers have lost your insurance and now have to share...We had to force you to do it...but damn it...giving your hard earned money to some lazy sob that doesn't have insurance and already lives off the system...Well, its the right thing to do in the name of sharing.
P.S. This is the BS they're trying to feed us.
“I mean theyre not really serious are they? LOL!”
I’m guessing you mean the part about the “New Years Resolution” and the “Dec. 23rd deadline”?
“OH,and you will eat your peas.”
You have to be effing kidding me! How about resolving to elect people that believe in freedom, repeal about the last hundred major intrusions on same (DEFINITELY including OsamaScare), and turn the homes of the perps into public shithouses? Not THAT’s a resolution!
America’s mom speaks,
OK Barrack may lie to us all the time, but not Michelle.
Obama’s bringing in the big guns now.
LOL! No, I mean all of it.
I think they have lost whatever they were looking for.
Obama is a clown and the freshman kids of 2007 have decided so.
lol - my favourite.
So we are, again, very grateful to you all. And we urge everyone out there who has a story to share it. And we urge people to reach out. And if theyve signed up their child, then sign up their friends. If youve got grandkids, make it a Christmas treat around the table to talk about a little health care. (Laughter.) Ring in the New Year with new coverage. (Laughter.)
That should be our New Year's resolutions to ourselves.
What does that even mean? "Resolutions to ourselves"? I realize they are Americans but they talk like foreigners...no; aliens from outer space who haven't quite mastered the subtleties of American idiom.
Does that mean she and her family will be enrolling also? Me thinks not!
Are those bubbles coming out of his butt?
Th First D-Bag needs to lead the way and sign up too.
The Obamas know that getting the young and stupid to sign up for ObammyCare is the only hope for their communist scheme to work. Their ObamaCare scam is going to need money. Lots and lots of money.
Has she signed up yet?
They keep digging the hole. Keep it up. They’re looking dumber and dumber every day. Not that that will make any difference to the obamabutt lickers.
Talk about obamacare while the New Year Day Twilight Zone marathon is running.
Ha! I laugh in your face moose-hell. Have you seen the rates in obamacare? Of course not, you're exempt. Have you seen the deductibles and tiny localized networks? Of course not. The quickest way to bankruptcy is to dump all your money into your obamacare "coverage" only to find out you are still exposed to thousands of dollars of bills each year on top of the thousands you pay in premiums. No thank you.
My new years resolution: never, ever sign up for obamacare.
These arrogant mutts actually think people can afford that crap. They’ve completely screwed up our healthcare system with their fascist lunacy, and now they are trying to con people into loving them for it.
Whoops, I meant levees, sorry.
Mo-bo needs to make a new year’s resolution to kma...
Has Moo - chelle signed up? No? I didn’t think so.
Will she lead by example?
Where’s the MSM?
Not if they have to pay for it they won’t, that is the little snag that Obamacare will never get over.
Somebody give Mooch a banana; maybe she’ll shut up and go away.
I think anyone who voted for Obama should automatically be enrolled in Obamacare. Somebody’s got to pay for this mess. Maybe they’ll think twice about voting next election.
Val Jarrett told Mitch to go out and take one for the team since her husband isn’t up to the task. Mitch wants to know if she can wait until her 17 day Hawaii vacation is over or does she need to go to Northern Idaho right away? Obammy’s been %itch-slapped again and he’s too stupid to realize it.
I have an idea for a New Year's resolution, but I'm afraid that the NSA will be reading this.

This is a government program, not a corporate initiative, meaning that it doesn't operate on the principles of corporate accounting.
The Communist's pet project will receive funding as long as he wants it to receive funding.
My New Years resolution is to support anyone who desires to send Ms Obama and her,uh,hubby packing and out of the White House.
And if they like their Mao ornaments, they can keep them and pack them up too. Period.
Appropriate advice - 92% of New Year’s resolutions fail, so ObamaCare should fit right in.
