A lot has been made about Obama’s statements about if you like your plan you can keep it and you can have your choice of doctors. Rightwingers, who have no ability to discern subtlety, have viciously attacked our President’s veracity primarily because they don’t understand reality. So, let me clarify this for you Republican knuckle draggers:
I really don’t see where Obama lied. By example, my wife’s insurance plan is very well defined and is contained and described in a multi-page document. NO ONE has asked her to relinquish that document. She is perfectly free to keep that “Plan” until the paper rots away. The only change is that in exchange for the carrier not paying any further claims under its terms, she no longer has to pay any premiums. As her premiums were a bit over $200 per month, JUST LIKE the President promised, she will now be saving $2500.00 per year on that policy.
As for choice of doctors, we here in California certainly have retained that. In Southern California there is DR. Harvey Swartz. He trained for several months at a medical school in Bangladesh and is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. In Northern California there is Dr. Martha Patel. She holds office hours 5 day per week at her parent’s Best Western. If that is not choice of doctors, I don’t know what it is. So, take your pick and quit complaining.
As for Obama, I think we all just may have misunderstood his intentions unlike, say, Michelle who seemed to fully understood his intentions in hitting on that white chick from Denmark at the recent Mandela Roast. Unlike the official Signer, EVERYBODY understood her sign language. Obama may keep lying but they are going be at an octave higher for a while.
So Republicans, quit complaining about Obama. He is not your immediate threat. Boehner, McConnell, Cantor, Ryan, McCain and Graham are your immediate threat. Besides, what, you think Obama’s a liar and they aren’t?
