So, if you make less that $40,000 a year and find the high cost of Obamacare to be overwhelming, President Obama has a message for you: cancel your stupid cable TV and you iPhone service you ingrates. Then you will be able to afford my mandated-by-law take over of our national healthcare system.

This is what Obama told a Latino audience at a townhall held this week on several Spanish language media networks.

Obama was presented with a question about a family that makes $36,000 a year and found that the cheapest Obamacare plan they could find would cost them $315 a month. This, the family felt, was too expensive and something they could not afford.

Uh, my Net 10 service is $40 a month and my cable and internet $70. That doesn’t come close to the $315/month premiums mentioned by the $36k guy in the video. And what about deductibles, oh Liar-in-Chief?

Excellent!

It’s very helpful to alienate the cable and phone companies.

Don't forget, our Dear Leader once promised ObamaCare would be "cheaper than your cell phone bill" too!

LOL! Maybe he can win "Lie of the Year" for 2014 too. If the GOP doesn't take back the Senate after THIS clip alone, they deserve to be sent into exile.

I encouraged people to watch the performance of the cable companies and their stocks over this year, because I thought people would have to cut out a lot of discretionary spending in order to afford their coerced healthcare spending. But I never guessed that the president would come out and blatantly say this.

A lot of companies supported obamacare, because they thought they could push off healthcare expenses onto the individual citizens, and they would save money. I don't think they calculated that those same people would lose their discretionary spending money, and it would come right back at them.

The tea party needs to reach out to insurance companies and companies that depend on discretionary spending.

I'm still inflating my tires to save money on gas (Obambi's advice). Nice to hear these suggestions from someone who never did have a job.

We all know how a ‘complicated subject’ is very liable to be ‘botched up’ when said in one language and translated into another.

Of course, that depends how many ‘common folk’ listen to ‘der Fuhrer’ on Spanish Language radio.

If ‘we’ are lucky he tried to give the interview in Spanish.

The guy must either be stupid, stoned or just don’t GAF, as the statements are getting more outlandish.

Guess the real question is when will these gaffes(?) be reported properly?

Even in “A Face in the Crowd” it took a while and sabotage to bring (A Griffith) the candidate down.

Like they say, this fool could be observed on the White House lawn screwing a goat and it may bring a ‘ho-hum’ from the crowd...

Jeepers, Mr. President!

‘Drop’ my cable bill, so that I can’t use my FCC-2009-compliant-digital-TV, since my local broadcasters have dropped all analog broadcasting???
Of course, in doing so, I guess I can’t watch that cable network you put on the blacklist,i.e., Fox News then, eh?

‘Drop’ my phone bill, so that I have NO phone service, since I do not, and have not, had a ‘landline’, in over 14 years? How coud I contact my power-of-attorney in an emergency? How could I alert the 911 service, since I am a disabled veteran?
Oh that’s right! You want me dead anyway, don’t you?

So, in a simple and easy way, I offer a ‘retort’:
I refuse.

Hey, it (Obamacare) may not be working optimal right now, but I am sure the Republicans will save the day, that they have a better plan. And with it, they will show up the democrats, we can show it is supposed to be done properly. And we can win more seats in Congress and maybe even take over the presidency in 2016. Yes, the republicans are much better at out-regulating than the democrats. We can do it more efficiently and less costly, just look at GWB medicare program. </s>

In the old days, there were the three networks, PBS/NPR, the major newspapers and news weeklies, all left-wing. Now we at least have us, the Blaze, Daily Caller, Hot Air, Drudge, talk radio, parts of Fox News, the assorted other conservative blogs, and etc. Is it even? Not even close. But it’s better.

Did they forget all about the $2500 savings in healthcare premiums that Barrez Obamero promised them low intelligence voters? They could have premium cable service for a year plus a flat screen TV for that amount. Pay up suckaz.

I called my cable company today, thinking of changing to UVerse. They added movie channels, faster internet and lowered the bill by $40. Wonder if the cable companies are trying to stay ahead of stuff like that.

Is it humanly possible to wrap your head around what would happen if any Republican said or did anything remotely similar what Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Reid, Johnson or S.J. Lee or most any other Democrat routinely spew?

It is truly 'Twilight Zone' or 'ranting from the insane asylums' material and the media ignores it.

I CANNOT believe that Obama said something so UNBELIEVABLY stupid to a LATINO Town Hall ...

I can hear them muttering under their breaths:

“He wants ME to give up cable with all of the Spanish language stations? He wants me to give up the Soccer Channel? He expects me to go back to Over-The-Air TV?”

And:

“He wants me to give up my cell phone - I have no landline. My kids go to inner-city schools - they need the phones for emergencies. PLUS, he wants me to tell MY 17 year old daughter that there’s no more cell phone, no more texting?”

Gee, that’s funny Mr. President. I thought you said the average family would SAVE $2,500 each year?

After lying to the American people over and over again, why should we listen to anything that you say?

So the Obamaphones he pushes in exchange for votes are the answer for those who have to cancel (so now they swell the ranks of obamaphone/voters) or it it that he thinks many of his voters (Obamaphone owner) would be unaffected by this.
I do wish someone would track down that woman who swooned when he was first elected - she was video taped raving that she wouldn’t have to pay her bills anymore. She was ecstatic -like she’d won the lottery. How does that lottery winner feel now about giving up TV and phone service? Swooning that all her dreams have come true or???

Sorry, I wasn’t suggesting that HE was misquoted or taken out of context.

I was thinking how idiotic twisted statements translate to the people he was trying to reach....

Didn’t we have a President that was trying to be ‘cute’ and say something in German and ended up saying he was a bear or ice cream cone or something?
Not sure but think it may have been JFK trying to say he was a ‘Berliner’.

Hate to say it BUT if you ever see me ‘praise’ this idiot (only if he steps down today) you can figure I started drinking again...HA...

Everyone also seems to have forgotten that when Obama first ran for president in 2008 his campaign promised that everyone in the country would get the same healtcare plan as the congress, senate, etc.

Funny, but I seem to recall ALREADY HAVING HEALTH INSURANCE when Obamacare was made law, and now my plan got cancelled because it didn’t fit into dear leader’s idea of what it should be (I’d love to give him a few syllables on where he gets the right to make that decision). And now I have to wait until November before I’m eligible for health insurance from work...assuming dear leader doesn’t find yet another way to screw things up.

It’s amazing how some of the supporters of this load of BS are still alive, considering how far their heads have to be up their behinds.
