Obama: Premiums Will Go Down 3,000%

From Mr. Obama’s latest last speech about ‘healthcare reform’ via CNN and YouTube:

Obama: Premiums Will Decrease 3000% So You Should Get A Raise When H’care Is Passed

Let’s say an employer pays $4,000 in health care premiums for an employee.

If his premium goes down 100% he will save $4,000 dollars. If it goes down 3,000% that is a savings of $4,000 x 30 which = $120,000.

Which means that an employer will make a $120,000 profit on each employee’s healthcare insurance once Obama-care is passed.

You can buy a lot of unicorns with $120,000.

    Sure! If you count all 57 states.

    • Mithrandir says:

      This just in, Bernie Madoff, has just pulled all his cash out of the Obama care investment scheme…..

  2. NoNeoCommies says:

    Obamath! Soon to be taught in schools across the fruited plain.

  3. proreason says:

    Stalin didn’t bother with details like prices and costs either.

    The Moron’s interested in bigger things.

    • Mithrandir says:

      This must be Obama’s plan to pay off the national debt, and bail out everything. Pass health care, save 3000%, collect the savings, pay off our bills.

      Problem solved- you slow-witted Republican bigots!

  4. mr_bill says:

    Why not a million gazillion percent?

  5. BannedbytheTaliban says:

    I actually heard one of the ditto-heads I work with use that as a talking point as to why we need this bill. And he has a PhD.

    • JohnMG says:

      …..” And he has a PhD……”

      And that would mean………..

      h-igher &

      Or maybe……


  6. MinnesotaRush says:

    Was that when the guy fainted (from disbelief)???

    A triple gazillion jobs saved or created and now .. costs going down 3000% .. sign this o-blah-blah dude up for king!

    Geeesh! Some village in Kenya is really missing their idiot!!!

  7. U NO HOO says:

    3000%, Obama was talking metric system.

  8. Media_man says:

    Now we know why Obama refused to release his academic transcripts. Bush got C’s, Obama probably failed lunch. (from the Hitler parody “Hitler Finds out Scott Brown wins MA).

  9. BigOil says:

    I counted two yawns near the left ear of the boy genius.

    Barry is even beginning to sedate the Obamabots with his healthcare gibberish.

  10. Mithrandir says:

    There is just nothing this guy can say that anyone can believe anymore. Every statement and comment that comes out of his mouth is cause for an argument.

    “We have debated this issue for more than a year.”
    ~Yeah, so? If everything is so agreeable then what took so long? You have control of Congress, it’s your own fault it has taken a year–not Republican’s.

    “Every proposal has been put on the table, every argument has been made…”
    ~And you ignored most of them, and did whatever you wanted, it doesn’t mean the end result was thorough and clean.

    “It’s just politics gettin’ in the way of gettin’ it done….”
    ~You have control of Congress dumb-dumb! And your people haven’t gotten it done, that’s what’s getting in the way.

    Ugh, Limbaugh’s right, this guy is always the most inexperienced person in the room. I am not even a lawyer, and I could give a better speech selling health care, and I don’t even want it!

  11. Marthajenn says:

    A reduction “by” is not the same as a reduction “of.” A reduction “by” means you divide (by), ie if an employer pays $10,000, a 3000% reduction is $10,000/ 3000% = $333. A reduction “of” would be $10,000 multiplied by 3000% giving you the crazy numbers, and that wouldn’t be a reduction! It would have been simpler if he had said employers may be paying up to 3% “of” their current cost. But then what sounds more profound, 3 or 3000? After-all it is politics.

    • JohnMG says:


      Ten divided BY five is two. Five multiplied BY two is ten.

      To find out what 1/2 of ten is you multiply ten BY one-half. The answer is, one-half OF ten is five.

      What the hell are you talking about?

      Nevertheless, the moron shows once again how clueless he is. If you look closely enough you’ll find a plug-in port for a flash drive. Without it or a Tele-Promp-Ter he’s a mental eunuch.

    • mr_bill says:

      Marthajenn, 333 over 10,000 is 3.33333 percent. Reducing a $10,000 healthcare premium by 3% (not 3000%) reduces its cost by $333.33, your ‘example’ is incorrect.

      Think about it like this, a 100% decrease in cost results in a cost of zero. Any decrease greater than 100% results in negative cost. Don’t let the numbers confuse you, its simple logic.

      JohnMG, “mental eunuch” hahahahaha, thats great! I love it, best laugh I’ve had all day. Thank you for that.

    • proreason says:

      Allow me to simplify this problem.

      Obama’s an idiot.

    • jobeth says:

      Pro…One of the things I like about you the most is your ability to cut right to the chase and explain the unexplainable in a most concise fashion!

      Perfect answer!!!! :-D
