There seems to be no shame in the Obama administration. Not even Mother's Day is sacred anymore. Barack Obama and his campaign has hijacked Mother's Day in order to capitalize politically.
On Sunday, the White House released touting the benefits for moms of the federal health care overhaul. They urged the cards to be sent around to "show appreciation for the mom in your life." What they really meant was "send these cards around to instigate fear in your mother's heart that she might not be cared for in the future should Barack Obama not be re-elected to a second term."
The card, which was posted on the White House website, was titled "Happy Mother's Day From the Affordable Care Act."
The card introduction is:
"Being a mom isn't a pre-existing condition"
The silhouette of the mother, on the card, is seen with a bubble reading in contradiction to the introduction, "It's a joy!"
The card goes on to tout, "Prior to the passage of the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies could deny coverage for women with pre-existing conditions like breast cancer or pregnancy, and women would be charged higher premiums simply because of their gender."
Well of course women are charged more. They face several things that men don't including pregnancy and breast cancer, just like the card states. Those things are "risks" for the insurance company and so to cover their risks they charge a higher premium.
The same could be said for smokers. They incur a higher risk and therefore pay a higher premium, but I'll bet Barack Obama and Company don't mind those higher premiums. There isn't a special "Happy Smoker's Day" card in the works that I'm aware of .
The card continues with Starting in 2014, it will be illegal to deny coverage to anyone with a pre-existing condition, or charge women more than men for health insurance."
Finally the card ends claiming numbers of people who gained something by the advancement of Obamacare.
The question I have for any sane person reading this is, "Who would be so stupid as to send something like this to their Mother on Mother's Day?" Seriously, is there anyone so cold-hearted, so political and so Barack Hussein Obama infatuated that they would sink to the level of politicizing Mother's Day and thus whittling their own mother down to nothing more than a vote to be obtained come November? If you are one of these people not only do I feel sorry for you, but I feel sorry for your mother.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
