At 8:25 in the video,
I got a letter — I got a note today from one of my staff — they forwarded it to me — from a woman in St. Louis who had been part of our campaign, very active, who had passed away from breast cancer. She didn’t have insurance. She couldn’t afford it, so she had put off having the kind of exams that she needed. And she had fought a tough battle for four years. All through the campaign she was fighting it, but finally she succumbed to it. And she insisted she’s going to be buried in an Obama t-shirt.
Plweeeez! I respect her decision to be buried in anything she best chose, but must Obama tell us about it? And not even bother mention her by name – Melanie Shouse?
She had delayed going to a doctor after she began to feel sick. She explained that she could only afford so-called “catastrophic” insurance — one that required her to pay $5,000 in deductibles before the insurance kicked in.
My heart goes out to her family, but to say she didn’t have health insurance is a lie. The article linked above went on to explain that Melanie Shouse used her savings to start a small business. Apparently, she chose the large deductible policy, and chose to invest in her business. But what better investment is there than in one’s own life? If we aren’t willing to invest in our own lives, why should we expect others to make that investment?
But the Obama ego is what matters. Another Black Conservative:
Speaking of lies, if you can stomach it, listen to the first couple of minutes where the audience is cheering his every sentence. Watch as he starts to boasts about his accomplishments how the audience’s applause diminishes to nothing, especially when he gets to the part about putting earmarks put online. Yes, he actually had the gall to count putting earmarks online as an accomplishment!
It goes well with those “millions of jobs saved or created”, too. After all, it’s coming out of the tower of Babble.
