A healthcare plan so good, you have to be a friend of the President to avoid it.

Want a waiver from ObummerKare? Join a union! Or run a gourmet restaurant or boutique hotel in Nancy Pelosi’s Congressional district. Come to think of it, you can just get elected to Congress yourself and, friend or foe of the Messiah, you too will be exempt.

So the plan is to be used to punish the Great One’s enemies?

  1. I am praying for Obama’s G-D healthcare plan to be revoked. Up until recently, we paid for our own health insurance — $12K after-tax dollars per year for what was considered a top-of-the-line plan.

    And that’s BEFORE all the deductibles, co-pays, lab fees and whatnot that weren’t covered by our plan. What an effing ripoff. We barely went to the doctor, despite having coverage. Meanwhile, our premiums were paying for the great unwashed who seem to live, very comfortably, at hospitals and ERs.

    Complete smear job, as this story from The Hill (not a liberal publication) demonstrated back six months ago. You must be having a slow news day to peddle this zombie lie. The nonpartisan GAO put to rest the rumors of cronyism, but the Tea Party nutjobs — immune to evidence — won’t give it up. More here…

    If Obamacare is so fabulous, why is anyone in the nation getting a waiver?

    chris: is dollar bill an actual reader or do you make up his stuff to ridicule the liberals?

  5. Most likely wandering around an Occupy camp looking for someone sober enough to listen to him.

    so who here is on tap to buy and read the new book “the obamas” by jodi kantor of the nyt? the pre-reviews say there’s some good juicy nasty stuff in there about mouchelle, ma belle. a politico article quotes the book “portraying her struggle with decisions as basic as whether to stay in Chicago with her girls after her husband moved into the White House.”

    gee, your husband gets elected to the highest most prestigious job in the world and michelle thinks about staying in chicago? i think that speaks volumes about the disdain she has for the office and her ego. it is the ultimate privilege to live in the white house, the ultimate. shame on this woman for feigning that she enjoys it there. i hope she does go back to chicago, with her husband and children (although i am very intrigued with the commenter who surmised the O’s go to CT and he runs for Lieberman’s seat. I think that’s very likely.)

    Go Giants.

    @anon,
    There was an excerpt in the NYT a few days ago which I thought was a fair piece. No nasty shots, no fawning, and some actual high profile aides were quoted. Roberts Gibbs was one of them, it was interesting reading, then I flipped to the Times’ comments and I had to wonder if I’d read the same article as the majority of the commenters. 😆

    One of most interesting things I learned is that living in the White House is the first time since the very early days of their marriage that they’ve lived together under the same roof full time.

    I looked at the Amazon top 100 list and it was sitting about mid-pack on the list so it should sell fairly well, at least in the early days. I noted that American Sniper and Unbroken (a really terrific book) were selling better.

    Erik Wemple of the WaPo and Cassie Murdoch of Jezebel have already trotted out criticisms of the book so perhaps the “professional left” aren’t nearly as fawning as the useful idiiots of the left have been.

    Ms. Kantor’s 2009 interview with the Obamas: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/01/magazine/01Obama-t.html?pagewanted=all

    Will I buy the book? I’m not sure but from her two pieces in the Times and a few other articles I’ve read of hers she comes across as a reporter without an agenda which is refreshing these days.

  8. I don’t know if it made it into the final bill, but there was a proposal in there to punish the evil rich and promote social justice by taxing uber expensive, gold plated health care plans. Then they found out that that’s what most unions had. Maybe that’s why all the unions want waivers.
