Title: Obama in Boston: Live thread
Post by: Cincinnatus on October 30, 2013, 04:06:09 PM
Right now he's being shouted at about something by some group. Something about climate change though he's there to shill ObamaCare.

He's comparing RomneyCare to ObamaCare and how the former started out slowly but is now just dandy.

RomneyCare was the model for ObamaCare according to him. He has yet to address the website fiasco or his promise people could keep their health plan. Instead he's telling us how great ObamaCare is.

Yeah, yeah, Bambi, and what about the website and the promise?

"The deal is good and the prices are lower" Exact quote. Kick the tires.

Now the website. He's not happy with how it's operating and he takes "full responsibility". Uh huh.

Not to worry. he's confident it will all work and cost overall will be lowered. Which is contrary to many news reports but wth?

He's pleased OR has covered 10% of its uninsured already. The crowd salivates not recognizing or caring this means Medicaid.

Once again everyone has to "contribute" which means the wealthiest Americans get to underwrite his compassion.

From each according to his ability, to each according to need.

Fyi 40 cents of every tax dollar in MA goes to Romneycare and they've had three tax increases to keep up with it.. and remember they get a huge chunk of money from the feds to cover about half the cost of Romneycare.  Now they're talking about single payer.

Ok, then, if you are losing your current health plan, it's a good thing because you may not have realized you are underinsured and he's going to fix that. What a guy!
Title: Re: Obama in Boston: Live thread
Post by: Cincinnatus on October 30, 2013, 04:23:20 PM
The fact you were underinsured was because of the evil, greedy insurance companies. But ObamaCare rectifies your stupidity and short sightedness.

Oh, the promise? Uh, huuum. Can he get back to you on that?
Title: Re: Obama in Boston: Live thread
Post by: Cincinnatus on October 30, 2013, 04:24:16 PM
His plans will be better for you (and you should really be grateful, wretch)

They are signing up the takers, when what they need to keep this Ponzi scheme alive are the makers.

ObamaCare is not about insurance (risk transfer), and it never was intended to be. It's about wealth transfer.  And if this little Kenyan Kommie SOB shows up at the World Series... he is going to hear it... even from a Boston crowd, who are not nearly as liberal as you might think.

The old system was broke and he's going to fix it. Because he cares.
Title: Re: Obama in Boston: Live thread
Post by: Cincinnatus on October 30, 2013, 04:28:58 PM
Again he returns to comparisons with RomneyCare and how it had problems at first but is now the most wonderful thing that has happened in MA since the Pilgrims landed. Maybe even greater.

Title: Re: Obama in Boston: Live thread
Post by: Cincinnatus on October 30, 2013, 04:31:24 PM
He's going to close (Yea!) on a note of pathos which is his way of saying if you oppose ObamaCare you are a heartless bastard.

"We are going to see this through" (repeated 3x) Crowd cheers. Great speech as no one fainted, he failed to seriously address the website fiasco and The Promise.

Goodbye, Mr President.

I was wondering what those people were yelling and, of course, it had to be some Lefties.

For goodness sake you don't have to apologize, Mystery. I was just kinda surprised there weren't many comments beyond my own and wondered if anyone else was enduring (whoops) watching it.

Thanks for doing this Cincy.  I have uncontrollable projectile vomiting when I hear him speak.  I appreciate you taking it in the gut for the rest of us.

Still no one has fainted.

The heckling was today's staged activity.  Sometimes Obama is painted as the hero; other times as the victim.
