The messiah-in-chief claims that Obamacare could save U.S. trillions.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will aim on Monday to build support for a sweeping overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system by highlighting a drive for greater efficiency he predicts could save trillions of dollars.
Blah, blah, blah. Of course, to position ourselves to save these trillions, The One will need to "invest" a few gazillions. Sure there will be upfront costs in providing health care to the 48 million unisured healthy Americans and some 20 million illegal aliens., but we can save gobs in "streamlining paperwork". Think of it as "creating health" in the same way he has been "creating wealth".
OBAMA: When you spread the health around, it’s good for everybody.
JOE THE PLUMBER: What if I have "plumbing problems", if you know what I mean. Say the ol' "garbage disposal" is backing up, or the pipes are leaking. How is your plan gonna help me?
OBAMA: My attitude is that if health is good for folks from the bottom up, it’s gonna be good for everybody. Besides Joe, I thought the media had already given you a colonoscopy?
JOE THE PLUMBER: I was talking about my friend, Rush Limbaugh.
OBAMA: Oh, him. Well part of our savings in health care is elimination of coverage for conservatives. We'd just let his kidneys fail. Did I mention that I've named Wanda Sykes as the new Obamacare czar?
