The macabre manner with which the Democrats are pitching Obamacare by figuratively lugging around dead people has been like watching “Weekend at Bernie’s” every day for a year. Every available corpse is shamelessly being dug up and thrown in front of America as “evidence” that we need a government takeover of health care.
To listen to Obama, Pelosi and Reid, you’d think that fully insured people never die, but now Obama is using his dead mother to pitch his health care takeover.
Obama’s full time job has gone from being president, to an undertaker:
In an email message to supporters, President Barack Obama used his dying motherâ€™s experience with insurance companies as an example of why lawmakers should pass the health care reform plan in Congress.
â€œShe died of cancer, and in the last six months of her life, I saw her on the phone in her hospital room arguing with insurance companies instead of focusing on getting well and spending time with her family,â€ Obama wrote in the email.
Yeah, the government should take over, because nobody has ever spent time arguing with the government about endless bureaucracy, rising costs and denied claims (government is the biggest denier of health claims, not private insurers).
Surprisingly, Obama didn’t say his mother was buried in an Obama t-shirt. I’m sure somebody’s working on that as we speak.
If Obama would like to have a debate about how many people have died because of a lack of health insurance vs. how many people have died due to over-grown, out-of-control governments wielding unchecked power, I’m game.
