President Obama really does rely on his base being total and complete morons who don’t know how to use the calculators on their Obamaphones.

Obama has been going around telling people that the “free contraceptive” coverage under Obamacare plans could be worth the price of the premium.

In a word: Bull:

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation Obamacare “subsidy calclulator,” a 27-year old woman, who is single, has no children, does not smoke, and earns $32,000 per year will pay an average annual premium of $2,657 in 2014 to buy a health-care plan in an Obamacare exchange. That works out to $221.42 a month–many times the cost of a month’s supply of birth control pills.

If the same woman had an annual income of only $29,500, she would still need to pay an average of $2,432 in annual Obamacare premiums–or $202.66 per month.

Birth control can be purchased for as little as $10 a month. So Obama’s claim that if a woman is on birth control the Obamacare plan “pays for itself” is only true if the women’s current form of birth control is paying a friend $55 a week to tell the guy “not tonight, f*#@head!”

    As in all things that the statists do, prices DO inflate with continued tampering with market forces. Want evidence? Start with education and health care. Look for contraceptives to increase in price after Obama's announcement as insurers must provide them free to the insured.

    This is from the guy who said we could solve our problems with high gas prices by keeping our tires properly inflated.

    There's ONE way to close the "reversion to the mean" gap!

    Good point CB. Many have noted from the inception of the G.I Bill ( post WWII ) and particularly post VN that the cost of a college education SOARED as more and more took advantage of these programs.

    So like SS, only the first wave of recipients truly benefitted, the rest get handed an over priced BOS.

    After 5+ years, thousands of broken promises and countless scandals ( wouldn't you think the LSM would take Him to TASK on some of this creative license? )

    Recently I'd seen a clip of Teh Wun claiming "When you structure health care premiums in a way that are cheaper than than people's *cell phone bill" people are going to sign up for it".

    Define "cell phone bill" Mista' pResident. You should have seen some of my daughter's? It can mean anything from a pre-paid $10 a mo. plan like grandma gets in case she forgets where she parked the car and PANICS up to $500 PLUS a mo. In watching Bertha Coombs GUSH about it NBR ( I'm less confident than EVER )

    And I'm not all that sure ( under cross-examination from Tyler Matheson ) her impromptu claim "You can choose to take the tax deduction UPFRONT or claim it at the end of the YEAR" statement will wash w/ your accountant?

    Ahem, a family of 4 making $50k a year paying $500 a mo. for coverage sounds as likely as their being able to cover monthly golf membership dues. And if the claim is accurate, the coverage has huge deductibles and will run around $2,500 per annum. Their exchanges are ready to ROLL in about 14 States…

    "President Obama really does rely on his base being total and complete morons who don’t know how to use the calculators on their Obamaphones. "

    Good one, Doug….I'm so using that :-)

    The BS is getting really deep…he can count on the gullible morons…but the funniest thing is barry believes his BS, too…he just reads whatever is in front of him, he's clueless. Did you notice Cruz spoke for 21 hours, no prompter, just afew notes….no ummmms, ahhhhs…..what a contrast.

    Just like you do not hear from the LSM that Lois Lerner (through her attorneys) are trying to negotiate an immunity deal in exchange for her testimony. Issa has said that he hasn't offered a deal, but is willing to entertain negotiations. In otherwords, she better be willing to dish real dirt with evidence if she wants a get out of jail free card.
