Correct me if I'm wrong, but is Cobra not a GWB administration invention? Was Cobra not designed to let one keep his/her health coverage in case of firing or lay-off? Well, isn't it true that individual Cobra coverage costs anywhere from $800 per person? Now, imagine that, you get laid-off. We assume you're not exactly swimming in money. In fact, money is rare. You want to keep your health coverage. Well,$800 per person. Great plan, that. Bravo, GWB administration for coming to the aid of the unemployed.<quoted text>
Realizing that most citizens get their health insurance from their employer, and must go on COBRA until they replace that job when and if they lose it, which happens all the time, I could not understand why it was that anyone bought that line of BS. The reality is that many bought it because the press never challenged the president on it. As a matter of fact, the press never challenges him on anything at all, which is why he was able to get re-elected. Fox would be the exception to that rule, which is why the left hates on them so much and uses their Alinsky tactics on the network and the Tea Party citizens. Unless you bow to the "master" and keep yourself on the plantation working hard for the cause, you will be ganged up on and hated out of existence. The only difference between todays modern american left and the likes of Stalin and Mao is they haven't employed the kill your enemies tactics yet, just the isolate and destroy strategy.
I found the last sentence of your post to be hyperbolic to say the least.
