Pelosi: Mandatory Healthcare ‘Liberating,’ Think Of All The Wannabe Writers, Photographers

June 6, 2013 by  

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) wants Americans to feel better about Obamacare, but she has a strange way of explaining how the “exciting enterprise” will benefit the populace.

During a Capitol Hill Press conference on Thursday, Pelosi gave the following reasons America should “be excited” about Obamacare:

Will premiums go up?

“Well, some of the people don’t have health insurance, and they certainly will have their premiums go up,” Pelosi said.

“But for anyone that that is a challenge, there are subsidies in the exchanges,” she said.

“It’s also about what you get for the money,” Pelosi added.  “In other words, people will be getting no lifetime or annual limits on their coverage, no discrimination because of a preexisting medical condition.  It has a whole array of quality that is in the legislation.”

“But if you don’t have health insurance, and you don’t qualify for a subsidy, and you’re mandated to have health insurance, yes, you will have an increase,” she said.

But the President and Congressional Democrats promised lower premiums for Americans…

“I don’t remember saying that everybody in the country would have a lower premium, because everybody in the country doesn’t have health insurance,” Pelosi continued.  “So how could it be lower?  But the fact is, the value of what you get for the cost that you pay is a reduction in cost to you.”

So, premiums are going up and health insurance is a government mandate. What’s the good news?

“But for everybody it is going to be, again, a liberation, a freedom,” she said, adding the kicker: With Obamacare young people could pursue careers as writers or photographers.

    Wow all you photographers and writers, I guess the tax payer “gets” to pay your doctor bill. Feeling liberated yet?

    I have a few silly questions for the dingbat known as Nancy Pelosi.
    How on earth can you claim medical care costs will go down when you are adding bureaucrats to something that never had it before?

    Why are all members of Congress opting out of this so called wonderful plan?

    And why did you idiots vote for making it law before you read it?

    And finally why didn’t the Supreme court strike it down as “unconstitutional”?
