This short clip from Obama’s health care rah-rah in Ohio today demonstrates the utter desperation the White House is feeling. They have now resorted to hoping that everyone in the country has undergone a tragically botched lobotomy since the last poll on Obamacare was taken (botched lobotomies will be covered under Obamacare, by the way, and are also required in order to support this bill).
There are a couple of guffaws (“politicians agree that Obamacare is great but politics is keeping them from getting it done”?), but the biggest whopper is when Obama claims that, under his plan, employer health premiums will drop up to 3,000 percent (if this doesn’t sell, he’ll switch to a “gazillion bajillion percent”), which will then of course lead to you getting a raise.
Let’s see — if your employer is paying, say, $15,000 toward your health care premiums, and your employer’s premium drops 3,000 percent, the insurance company will have to reimburse your employer to the tune of about $450,000 (hopefully your boss shares just a little of that windfall with you).
Wow — if the government taking over 1/6 of the US economy could get us a raise like that, just imagine how much we’ll be making after Obama, Pelosi and Reid have taken over everything!
Obama has morphed into Tommy Flanagan in just a few short months.
