Default Obama: Hey, just quit your bitching and pony up! Cancel your cellphone and cable!

Obama appeared in a town hall for Spanish-language media on March 6th to discuss ObamaCare and promote enrollments, and got challenged by a viewer on the economics of it for low-income Americans who are now forced to buy comprehensive health insurance. On a $36,000 annual income, the requirement to buy the broad policy rather than something a little more economical — say, hospitalization coverage combined with an HSA, a strategy which is now all but illegal — makes it impossible to comply. Pshaw, Obama replied. Why, all those low-income folks need to do is stop spending money on luxuries like cable television and cell phones!

No, really:

Well? Why are poor people wasting their money on such luxuries? Priorities people, priorities!

While a cell phone might be considered a minimum prerequisite for anyone who's employed these days, he's quite correct about cable - what, you're life will not be worth living unless you can couch potato it in front of Game of Thrones, Dancing with the Stars and Oprah?

Just like when he was right in 2008 talking about single parent black households and how black men need to step up and take responsibility, and faith based private initiatives would be a answer instead of big government - he quickly stopped making that noise when Jesse Jackson was caught hot mic, saying he wanted to "cut his nuts off" for saying it.


Obama strayed off the big government, entitlement, keep 'em on welfare and food stamps and keep them dependent on the G for just that split second....


He might be correct in his assertion that medical insurance should be a higher budget priority than cellphones and cable - but who the fuck IS HE to tell people what they should be spending THEIR money on? Especially since he can't balance the nation's checkbook he's in charge of.

Can't have a dedicated member of the victim coalition start thinking on their own. They might think they want actually want cable as opposed to health insurance. Afterall, doesn't the hospital treat them for free when they need it to anyway?
