White House touts ‘Fox News addict’ who loves ObamaCare (Bat Guano Alert)
The Hill ^ | 3-28-14 | Jonathan Easley

Posted on 03/28/2014 10:52:34 PM PDT by kingattax

The White House on Friday touted the story of a “staunch Republican” who says he’s getting the best coverage he’s ever had under ObamaCare.

“I am a staunch Republican, a self-proclaimed Fox News addict, and I didn't vote for the President,” Mark Beard, a retired psychologist from North Carolina, wrote in a letter posted on the White House website. “And I'm here to tell you that ObamaCare works. I'm living proof.”

Beard said he was paying $428 a month for chemotherapy treatment and was upset when he got a notice from his insurer saying his plan would be canceled. But he said the plan he obtained through HealthCare.gov is now only costing him $62 a month. “It's the best health care I have ever had,” he said.

“I may not be a supporter of the President. But now, I get mad when I see ObamaCare dragged through the mud on television,” he continued. “And even though I regularly tune in to conservative pundits, I'd like to tell them they're getting it wrong. ObamaCare works.”

Yay. He got somebody else to pay for his healthcare. Good for him.

Let’s have fun and make up fake names and testimonials to Obamacare.

So if you were playing the Moby and plumping Obamacare, what would you say?

Here’s FenelonSpike’s opening bid:

I’m Mark Christian, PhD and I live in Gainesville, FL.
I wouldn’t miss going to church every Sunday and I sing in the praise band . I am a strong proponent of the second amendment, don’t support abortion and didn’t vote for President Obama either time. I wouldn;t miss NASCAR or FOX news. But I want you to know that I checked out the Affordable Care Act and it is both affordable and caring. Sign up Now!!!

MWR bids:

I’m Beth Abrams of Salt Lake City, UT, and I have an MBA from Brigham Young University. You could say I’m a Republican, if by “Republican” you mean “founder of the local Rush Limbaugh Dittohead Fanclub,” or maybe, “the lady who DVRs every episode of The O’Reilly Factor,” or even, “the one with an airbrushed Bald Eagle on the side of her Ford F-150 and a ‘Reagan/Bush ‘84’ bumper sticker.” If that’s what you mean by “Republican,” then yeah, I guess I’m kind of a Republican.
And I’m here to tell you that Obamacare WORKS.

Matticus bids:

Hi, I’m Bill Prescott. On my way to Hobby Lobby, I stopped by a Chic-Fil-A to get a #1 with extra pickles. I usually eat while I read the latest from The Blaze, but decided to give the ACA website a shot. I’ll be durned if the thing wasn’t the most easy-to-navigate website I’ve encountered in quite some time. And the prices? Well, let me just tell you that I was very pleased. ACA rocks!

Lincolntf bids game:

Just got back from the gun range, ready to start homeschooling all nine kids. My sister-wives were busy beating the Devil out of a haunted set of curtains, so I picked up the mail. I couldn’t believe my eyes! Our insurance rates have gone from $4,000 a month, without the Gout Plan, to just 14 bucks, with full Gout Coverage!

“Tex Texas” doubles:

As a severely conservative Republican, I really hate Obama. Not because he’s a sh*tty president, but because he’s black.

So anyway, a couple months ago I was leaving the monthly Klan rally and saw a gay wedding going on across the street. Naturally, I went over and curb stomped those queermos one after the other until all of a sudden, I broke my foot.

Three months later, my foot is all healed up and I didn’t pay jack shit. Thanks, Obamacare!

Hollowpoint redoubles:

I’m Cliff Redmond, and am a lifelong Republican Christian Conservative. I did not vote for Obama because he was secretly born another country. I forget which, the one with all the colored people. Quebec I think.
An injury I sustained while taking part in a lynching after a big meth binge has left me with a pre-existing condition that prevents me from getting traditional medical care. At times the pain in my back is so severe I can’t even make love to my sister. At least not in the “normal” way like God intended.

While trying to distract me from beating my sister-wife for nagging me about the moonshine still, my nephew-son showed my all the Obamacare options available to me. I shot the computer for being the work of the Devil, but a local navigator was able to take my information over the phone and get me enrolled.

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, I can now afford things I never thought possible. It’s enabled me to buy Copenhagen instead of that cheap Grizzly stuff, and even a shirt with sleeves on it.

Thanks, Obama!

I wonder if this guy, if he even exists, is what Rush would refer to as a seminar caller type person. "Rush, I am a registered Republican, but......"

We have seen this before.

So if people actually pay for the insurance but don’t get subsidized they don’t get the treatment. Whereas this man who only pays $62.00 is getting cancer treatment I don’t get it.

One of those “I missed shooting the biggest grizzly I have ever seen because a Bigfoot scared it away” stories. Sad part is there are too many people who believe it.

“It's the best health care I have ever had,” .

Fraud. It is not health care, it is insurance. The propaganda is thick with this one.

I know a butt load of "lifetime republicans" and not ONE of them would say what this alleged mystery person said.

He "hates it" when the ACA is dragged through the mud?

I think not.

IF this person exists, and was a "republican" he wouldn't be stupid enough to have every single democrat talking point down.

I really don't care if he watches Fox.

Real "republicans" don't preface their remarks with supposedly conservative credentials that can't be checked out or proven.

And so he claims to only pay $62 per month?

Really?

Name the phantom insurance company you obtained such a policy from, and show me the cancelled checks from premiums paid.

THEN show me a "doctor" or hospital that accepts your Obamacare insurance.

IF this phony can provide real evidence that he actually has his health care paid for, I'll shut my yap.

Until then, the guy is a lying sack of crap.

And I mean no disrespect to sacks of crap.

Actually I can’t seem to find a single reference on the internet to a Mark Beard psychologist. There are a few MD’s and a Dentist, but no psychologists. There is also a guy who does a lot of homosexual art by that name.

How come when I google this guy's name he doesn't come up?

I'd think he'd light up like a Christmas tree.

Late 50s, psychologist, retired.

Kind of narrows it down, but no I can't find him.

Maybe another FReeper can find this guy.

Obama never gets dragged through the mud on television. Never.

If he is beyond retirement age, then he would be on Medicare instead. If he has not yet reached retirement age, then he is sitting back not working making very little income, and he’s getting a big subsidy that the rest of us are paying for.

I’ve just been watching a DVD of the 2009-2011 alien-invasion series, “V”, and the methods of the aliens almost exactly correspond to the tactics of liberals, especially those of the Obama administration: infiltrate religion, education, and science, seduce the young with “coolness,” flattery, and sex, demonize or co-opt potential critics, promise healing miracles, control the media, and be utterly ruthless in demoralizing and isolating critics.

"I JUST LOVE INVESTIGATIVE FREEPERS!! Good job!!!"

Somebody's got to do it, and the MSM refuses. I outed a "lifelong Republican" who wrote a letter-to-the-editor in 2008 criticizing Palin; it turned out she was a long-time feminist Democratic activist with a lot of footprints on the Internet. A blatant liar.

"a self-proclaimed Fox News addict"

This alone is a huge red flag. Fox News looms much larger in the psyche of libs than conservatives, most of whom appreciate Fox's conservative slant but hardly take it as an oracle. Conservatives criticize Fox all the time, and I have never heard a real conservative describe him/herself as a Fox "addict." My BS detector is flashing, beeping, and smoking.
