I May Be Getting Covered
President Obama laid out a new budget for people like me who can't afford health insurance. All I have to do is cut out my cable bill. And my phone bill. And my cell phone bill. And my car payments. And my electricity bill. And my water bill. And my gas bill. My car insurance, my home insurance, my mortgage payments, and cut out that luxurious grocery bill.
Then I will be able to afford healthcare under Obamacare!
(Washington, D.C.) - The President recently participated in a health care town hall with Spanish-language media. He responded to a question received via email, from a consumer who makes $36,000 per year and cannot find insurance for a family of three for less than $315 per month. The President responded that "if you looked at their cable bill, their telephone, their cell phone bill... it may turn out that, it's just they haven't prioritized health care." He added that if a family member gets sick, the father "will wish he had paid that $300 a month."
Yeah! Healthcare here I come!
