Healthcare for the Holidays
These people are mentally challenged. Seriously?
This holiday season, millions of Americans have a chance to get quality, affordable health insurance—many for the first time. If you have family members who are uninsured, you can play a big part in helping them find coverage that works for them. It might not always seem like it, but your family listens to you. So have the talk.
It gets worse.
Pick A Time
Start early: Don’t wait until the last minute—be sure to start the conversation early!
Integrate the talk into family time: Take advantage of downtime after meals or between holiday activities to start your talk.
The Organizing for Obama site offers plenty of “helpful” hints for idiots to propagandize to their loved ones, and each of these wonderful ideas can be printed out (or EMAILED) for convenience.
This doesn’t sound irritating at all; from the “conversation tips” section:
Start by asking: “Have you thought about signing up for health insurance on the new marketplace?”
Offer to walk them through it: “Would you like to take some time with me to sign up right now?”
Ask them to make a plan, and commit to it: “When do you plan on signing up?”
Don’t forget to follow up: “Have you signed up yet?”
Why can’t any of these Obama-loving asshats show up at my house to have such a talk? To be honest, I can’t find a single person who’s interested in discussing anything to do with Obama, outside of the occasional facebook loonie.
Where the entire argument is usually along the lines of “you’re racist.”
