White House adviser David Axelrod is going to try to start his own viral e-mail responding to attacks on Obamacare. It will include responses to eight “myths” about Obamacare, and since I know all of you come to IMAO as your primary news source, I obtained those myths and the White House’s response so you can see them here:
MYTHS AND FACTS ABOUT OBAMACARE
MYTH: Obamacare will institute “death panels” to judge who should live and who should die.
FACT: People deciding who will live and who will die will be single Obama-appointed bureaucrats, so no panels are involved.
MYTH: Obamacare will force you from your current employer provided insurance.
FACT: With Obama leading the economy, you were probably going to lose your job and insurance anyway.
MYTH: Obamacare will kill your grandma.
FACT: Your grandma will die from a natural condition that Obamacare will refuse to treat.
MYTH: Obamacare will lead to rationing.
FACT: Procedures will be eliminated wholesale instead of rationed.
MYTH: Obamacare will make me wait weeks or months for necessary medical procedures.
FACT: If you’re waiting that long, then obviously a qualified individual like Barney Frank or Nancy Pelosi decided the procedure wasn’t necessary.
MYTH: Obamacare will be financed by cutting Medicare.
FACT: Obamacare will be financed by eliminating Medicare recipients.
MYTH: While many people will be forced onto the substandard public option, members of Congress will get a separate, much better plan.
FACT: They will be on the same plan, but on a much much higher tier than will be made available to the hoi polloi.
MYTH: Obamacare will be extremely costly and result in putting the country even further in debt.
FACT: There is no confirmation of this, as the solar-powered calculator Obama tried to use to calculate the cost only allowed numbers up to the tens of billions.
