There Are Costs to Living

The First Lady has now been enlisted in the never-ending campaign saga. She's hit the trail for health care and true to form she is playing up the victimhood aspects. Yes, my friends, the national healthcare system is abusive of women!

Act To Help Women Fight the System

Read that piece again slowly. It makes one want to scream that agonized Hindenburg disaster line, "ohhhh, the humanity."

Take this tidbit:

Michelle Obama said women are being “crushed by the current structure of our health care” because they often are responsible for taking care of family illnesses, arranging checkups and monitoring follow-up care.

Yes, they must arrange checkups and monitor follow-up and take care of their families. Who else would do it for you? You want a checkup, pick up the phone and make an appointment. The doctor tells you take two tablets every six hours. Who should monitor that you are doing it if not yourself? Your children need medical attention. They are your children! Take responsibility!

Women also are more disproportionately affected by the lack of insurance options because they are more likely to work part-time or at small businesses that don’t provide coverage.

Dissect that with me. They work part-time or at businesses that don't provide that because their husband is working full time and his benefits cover the family? They are married aren't they? There is a male partner in the household isn't there? Wouldn't that help?

Oh, they are single mothers. How did that happen? Isn't that a biological impossibility? They have to take care of their children, so they can't get a full-time job. They are on welfare and welfare only sends money it doesn't offer healthcare benefits...yet.

My impression is that Michelle is woefully out-of-touch. She also is spoiled rotten and unconcerned apparently about any inconvenience she might cause the proles around her:

Michelle Goes A Block for Fresh Veggies

Pick up some $20 a pound kale and cost the taxpayers a few hundred thousand while bunging up Washington traffic for an hour or two. Gotta love it!
