Washington, D.C.) - The President recently participated in a health care town hall with Spanish-language media. He responded to a question received via email, from a consumer who makes $36,000 per year and cannot find insurance for a family of three for less than $315 per month. The President responded that "if you looked at their cable bill, their telephone, their cell phone bill... it may turn out that, it's just they haven't prioritized health care." He added that if a family member gets sick, the father "will wish he had paid that $300 a month."
According to the National Center for Public Policy Research, the health care law is reducing choice and increasing premiums for millions of Americans. Ehealthinsurance reports that consumers are paying an average of 39% more than they did before the law was implemented. The high cost of policies is contributing to the continued weak enrollment numbers under the law, which are now showing signs of decreasing with less than 3 weeks left to enroll. When he sought the Presidency, Mr. Obama said his plan would deliver affordable care that people would be "desperate" to purchase.
Daniel Garza, Executive Director of The LIBRE Initiative released the following statement:
"If the President actually believes that a family earning less than $40,000 per year can afford nearly $4,000 in health insurance premiums, then he truly does not understand middle-income families. Americans do not need the President to tell them how to Budget their households. People are already cutting back on things like cable television and cell phones, just to compensate for an awful economy.This President promised he would deliver on affordable health care. Instead, premiums are up, out-of-pocket expenses are up, and overall cost of living is up. The President simply doesn't get it. And his condescending attitude adds insult to injury."
He wants everyone to have an Obamphone, I guess.
What will it take to eliminate free care at the hospital?
Just give up your paid telephone, claim you are a minority and get one free.
This is his Jimmah Carter, “Put on a sweater.” moment.....................
When it disappears.................
What an arrogant cacksmacker.
Cable, phone, and health insurance
Memo from the ozarks: Get lost.
You have to choose between necessities and luxuries...
unless you’re one of his people on the dole.
This is one time when I sort of agree with Caliph Baraq.
(scary moment for me)
well, he’s giving all his voters free Obammyphones.
so this statement is largely meaningless.
“Cable, phone, and health insurance”
The only POTUS who has stooped so low as to tell Americans how to spend money was when Jimma Carter told us to turn our thermostats down to 68.
“LET THEM EAT CAKE!”
(Qu’ils mangent de la brioche!)
(supposedly almost the last words of Queen Marie Antionette, although probably not an accurate attribution...it works well for Obama...it shows just how callous and UN-CARING he really is about all the “poor people” he’s been making out of the former “middle class”...)
“He added that if a family member gets sick, the father “will wish he had paid that $300 a month.” According to the National... “
And THAT is the strongest point AGAINST obozoCare, ie;FORGET A DECENT, MIDDLE CLASS EXISTENCE!
We need JOBS not government health care.....
