Breaking news from the stupid party:
""MR. PRESIDENT WILL YOU AND YOUR FAMILY GIVE UP YOUR CURRENT HEALTH CARE PROGRAM
AND JOIN THE NEW 'UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE PROGRAM' THAT THE REST OF US WILL BE ON ????"
THERE WAS A STONEY SILENCE AS <>OBAMA IGNORED THE QUESTION AND CHOSE NOT TO ANSWER IT !!!
IN ADDITION, A NUMBER OF SENATORS WERE ASKED THE SAME QUESTION AND THEIR RESPONSE WAS."WE WILL THINK ABOUT IT."
AND THEY DID. IT WAS ANNOUNCED TODAY ON THE NEWS THAT THE "KENNEDY HEALTH CARE BILL" WAS WRITTEN INTO THE NEW HEALTH CARE REFORM INITIATIVE ENSURING THAT THAT CONGRESS WILL BE 100% EXEMPT !
Point 1: Obamacare isn't universal health care; it applies to the working poor, giving them access to health care assistance through wage deductions, like Social Security and Unemployment Insurance. Universal health care would apply to everyone, not those on welfare or private insurance plans. Employers and workers pick their health plans; they aren't placed in one national company.
(in other words, the stupid party doesn't know what universal health care means.)
Point 2: Long, detailed instructions to the stupid party would glaze their eyes while they pretend to listen; then, like Barney, they'd go back believing their GOP propaganda.
Point 3: Congress is, of course, exempt anyways. They have their own employer sponsored health care plan, as do civil servants, Medicare, and the military. They don't need to pick from another pool of insurers, as the new pools will be the same insurance companies. The 86% millioniares in Congress will never get Medicaid.
