Obama magically insures sixteen million people
..and for my next trick
For years, the "number" of people in America who don't have health insurance has been a moving target. "Moving" in the sense that liberals keep jacking up the number in order to condition the public to believe that there's a "crisis" and the we simply must do something, ANYTHING, now...regardless of what liberties we give away in the process.
Well, either Obama accidentally ingested some low grade truth serum or perhaps his teleprompter sabotaged him, but during his big health care speech to Congress he stated that there are thirty million uninsured in America...as opposed to the more recent favorite number, forty-six million.
And oops moment?
Who knows? But what we do know is as recently as several weeks ago, the number was forty-six million. Today it's thirty million. And Obamacare's not even law yet!
Just imagine how many more Americans we can get insured if we don't pass this bill.
Actually, some are suggesting that it's a conscious attempt by Obama to take the issue of insuring illegal immigrants off the table...as in, if the number's smaller, people are less likely to think he's including them in any future coverage.
Which explains why they've been so prickly about responding to the "Obamacare covers illegal aliens" charge...which probably also means they've got some polling that tells them that's killing the bill with moderate and conservative Democrats.
Their problem is that nobody really believes that it won't cover illegals. They know how government works (or doesn't work) and metastasizes.
If Obamacare passes, illegals will get a free ride. Bank on it.
