Obama Tells Us to Cancel Cell Phone and Cable to Pay for Obamacare
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 dang iPhone service you ingrates. THEN you will be able to afford his mandated-by-law take over of our national healthcare system.
This is what Obama told a Latino audience at a townhall held on March 6 by 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.
The President’s response was chilling. Obama said, “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.”
So, he expects people to cancel their phones and TV to be able to afford his mandated, fiat healthcare charges?
But wait, isn’t this the same President who said that healthcare would be cheaper than a cell phone bill?
I can use my own expenses as an example here. I have minimum cell service and a minimum cable TV package and both bills together barely get to the $315 a month that the healthcare above would cost. So, it is clear that Obama lied right out that his takeover of our healthcare system would produce cheaper insurance rates than a cell phone bill.
But I guess we are getting used to this President being an outright liar…
