Musings: If O-Care were not good, would not be mandatory
From Ace of Spades:
There’s an email floating ’round that the commenters at AOSHQ are mocking:
I am a staunch Republican, a self-proclaimed Fox News addict, and I didn’t vote for the President. And I’m here to tell you that Obamacare works. I’m living proof.
I’m a chemotherapy patient, and was previously paying $428 a month for my health coverage. I was not thrilled when it was cancelled.
Then I submitted an application at HealthCare.gov. I looked at my options. And I signed up for a plan for $62 a month.
It’s the best health care I have ever had.
Ace comments that he has no idea if this is a real conservative or not, but he has his doubts. He believes it’s a progressive trying to sound like a conservative . . . so the liberal writes what he thinks a conservative would say to establish his bonafides:
. . . he’d build his Krazy Konservative Kredentials on the most superficial, most vacuous grounds possible, insulting conservatives even as he claimed to be one.
He’d go to the progressive stereotype of a conservative and pick out one of the ten bigoted slurs that his mind associates with conservatives. You know, “God-Humpers,” gun-f*ckers, that kind of thing.
But that’s too obvious, isn’t it? He wouldn’t claim, “Hey, I believe in all that fantasy nonsense about Jesus and Easter Bunnies or whatever, so believe me when I say ObamaCare is just wonderful.”
No, what he’d say is “I’m a Fox News addict.” He would make his Krazy Konservative Kredentials on the basis of a trivial consumer choice.
What the hell kind of politically-animated person bases his philosophy on what TV channel he watches?
Ace opens it up.
So if you were playing the Moby and plumping Obamacare, what would you say?
- Lincolntf: Just got back from the gun range, ready to start homeschooling all nine kids. My sister-wives were busy beating the Devil out of a haunted set of curtains, so I picked up the mail. I couldn’t believe my eyes! Our insurance rates have gone from $4,000 a month, without the Gout Plan, to just 14 bucks, with full Gout Coverage!
- FenelonSpike: I’m Mark Christian, PhD and I live in Gainesville, FL. I wouldn’t miss going to church every Sunday and I sing in the praise band . I am a strong proponent of the second amendment, don’t support abortion and didn’t vote for President Obama either time. I wouldn;t miss NASCAR or FOX news. But I want you to know that I checked out the Affordable Care Act and it is both affordable and caring. Sign up Now!!!
- Tex Texas: As a severely conservative Republican, I really hate Obama. Not because he’s a shitty president, but because he’s black.So anyway, a couple months ago I was leaving the monthly Klan rally and saw a gay wedding going on across the street. Naturally, I went over and curb stomped those queermos one after the other until all of a sudden, I broke my foot.Three months later, my foot is all healed up and I didn’t pay jack shit. Thanks, Obamacare!
