THEN WHO WAS OBAMAPHONE?
11/11/2012 2:38:02 PM
He didn't name them after himself, cretin. The press and media named them as they have to keep things simple for idiots like you. Still, I guess if you'd named them they would be ObummerPhone or MbongoCare. Losers.

Rabbit of Caerbannog
But he never named...his critics were the ones...oh god my brain...

Actualy "Obama Care" is the rethuglican name for O'Bama's attempt to protect the poorest americans from preventable sickness and death.
O'Bama didnt name it after himself, his enemys did.
Also; no team of doctors will ever choose your healthcare for you. ALL healthcare will remain the same... but poor people will finaly be able to get checked for early stage cancer, and be able to recieve treatment while it is still treatable.
Seriously, your current for-profit healthcare system is a disgrace, so O'Bama has decided to make it better.

Better a board or team of doctors than a board or team of insurance adjusters, no?
Oh, and the phone program was started under Reagan. So I guess they should be called ReaganPhones, but you can't besmirch the name of your demigod.

Nope. Unfortunately, the health care law leaves us with exactly the same health care we've always had, in which teams of non-medical, private insurance company employees decide your health care. It just makes things slightly better by stopping those employees from dumping you when you get sick, and mandating that they spend 80-85 percent of premium dollars on actual health care.
SAY THANK YOU.

Second is the ObamaCare, i'm getting tired of him naming everything after himself
First go tell Michelle Bachmann about your disapproval, second just call it what you really want to: "that damned nigger care".
Oh, and in a couple of years when your spouse has cancer and she's/he's getting medical treatment due to the Affordable Care Act which you otherwise wouldn't be able to pay for, you'll be kissing that "damned nigger's" ass out of gratitutde.

wonder what this idiot's "novel" is about...
11/11/2012 4:26:51 PM
He is also called President Obama. How presumptuous of him.
11/11/2012 5:00:08 PM
I am tirelessly working hard with my elected Democratic Representatives and Senators to have a likeness of Obama carved on Mt. Rushmore. I'm sure you will love that.
11/11/2012 5:08:08 PM
Um... just because the government offers assistance, doesn't mean you have to take it.
And it's not Obama naming everything after himself, it's the media and usually conservatives.
11/11/2012 5:09:42 PM
Ah, Obamaphones, best referred to as "Reaganphones" by the man who the program was started under.
11/11/2012 5:23:11 PM
An Obamaphone is someone who talks like Barak Obama.
11/11/2012 5:30:05 PM
Didn't the Republicans come up with those names as a derisive sort of thing?
11/11/2012 6:16:58 PM
11/11/2012 6:21:33 PM
I'm betting that you're not going to like the new name for our country.
11/11/2012 6:22:14 PM
"...with the ObamaCare there is a board or team of doctors rather that will choose your healthcare for you."
What? That's not even close to true. Like a board of doctors is more cost effective than just letting you see your GP.
Where the fuck do you people get your ideas from? Oh, that's right, you watch Fox News.

Phone assistance was added by the Telecommunication Act of 1996, so actually they are Clinton phones, he signed the bill into law. The government also pays assistance towards the installation of landline phones and gives a discount on the monthly bills for them too.
Basic cell phone service offered in bulk by companies like Tracfone actually became much cheaper than landline service in many areas. So what started as a "Lifeline" program discount quickly became free phones as the prices continued to drop. Tracfone started SafeLink which is entirely free because the governments measly $10.00 per month pays for the whole thing. You don't get data, but you can text and you get 250 minutes per month along with the phone itself of course. If you want to add minutes you can buy tracfone minute cards.
Virgin Mobile/Sprint and Nexus now also offer free phones and service thru the governments "Lifeline" program. Many people are eligible for this and do not even know it, approx. 50 million in the United States should qualify according to the census numbers. Just thought people might want to know. :)
P.S. They also have a program that allows you to get home internet service for $10.00 per month if you qualify.
P.P.S. These programs are not paid for by federal tax money, just look at your phone bill and find the Universal Service Charge or USC line on the bill, now at least you know what that is for, right? ;)

As others have said, he's not naming these things after himself - generally it's the conservatives who are doing it derisively. Additionally, no one is forcing you to get a phone, and your taxes aren't even paying for it.

Wait till Obama starts adding his names to the states: Obamannesota, Obamachigan, Obamaginia, Obamahoma, North and South Obamalina, etc.
11/11/2012 7:49:18 PM
Or your could just call both programs by their right names:
"Lifeline" and the "Affordable Care Act" respectively.
And that isn't what Lifeline and ACA do, of course.

He never named anything after himself, the press just named them that so cretins like you would know who to hate for irrational reasons. Oh, and that last bit is just a resurrection of Palin's "death panels" lie.
