Next clip: Sweet Irony. Democrats concerned about forcing some people to subsidize other people’s lifestyles.
Next clip: Obama. “Penalties are appropriate for people who try to free-ride the system and force others to pay for their health insurance…” Yes, let’s stop all subsidies, ALL subsidies, right now, and impose penalties for people who try to free-ride by not paying their own way in life. The best penalty? Tell them you’re not going to steal from me to subsidize them. By all means, Mr. President. I will wait with baited breath while you and your anti-subsidy allies in the House and Senate work strenuously to achieve that worthwhile goal, but not just in health care and when it serves your agenda. Now tell me how we are going to address the problem, which originally was sold to the American people as “millions of uninsured Americans not having access to quality health care,” by threatening them with penalties because we don’t want them free-riding on the system? Who believes this crap that you’re shoveling?
Next clip: Obama says health care requirement is not a tax. “I absolutely reject that notion.”
