Caption/Photoshop Contest, Plus: ObamaCare Gonna Give Yo’ Mama a Piece of Its Mind!

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 5:45 pm

Let’s start with the latter half of the title. This actual tweet, which I am not making up, appeared on the actual White House Twitter feed today:

Be proud. Be very proud.

And as if that were not sufficiently lacking in self-awareness, the very same official White House Twitter feed also featured this, a tweet which screams: PLEASE PHOTOSHOP ME!

Senator Ted Cruz said: OK. If you really want me to Photoshop you that badly, then I will Photoshop you:

I enjoyed Jay Caruso’s entry as well:

Commenters: what text would you put in the photo? And if you have Photoshopping skills, go ahead and provide your own Photoshopped version. Anything good, I will round up and put in a post.

  49. But if you get sick (and you are your family’s main or only source of income) you probably will lose income, and may qualify for Medicaid, with a greater choice of doctors!

    It’s only important not to go broke if you have assets to protect that are not protected during bankruptcy.

    Comment by Sammy Finkelman (ca4c0f) — 12/13/2013 @ 7:40 am

  50. And there’s no limited yearly enrollment period for Medicaid. You can enroll anytime!

    And if you can’t handle the forms, your hospital or an agency of your state government will probably do it for you.

  56. http://andstillipersist.com/2013/12/obamacare-and-the-cold-equations/

    I believe what we are witnessing will turn out to be the single largest and most catastrophic government policy failure in US history, as well as the most public IT failure in world history. There have been larger (in years and dollar amounts) IT failures, but they have usually always involved systems that never went into production, or if they did, that impacted a relatively limited number of people.

    The science fiction story is flawed because nobody would leave no margin for error or accident.

    GetCovered because Shabbat 156b

    This may be a mystery. This is, I think. the explanation:

    IIn shabbat 156b “Tzedekah Tatzil Memovet” (Righteousness/charity saves from death) is quoted.

    It is from Proverbs 10:2 (second half of verse)

    Both Shmuel and Rabbi Akiva lectured on this as a result of similar incidents where a dead snake was found (that could have killed people.)

    They asked the people involved what (good deed) did they do. This used to be a somewhat customary thing to do, apparently.

    In one case there were people were sharing bread, and one person didn’t have bread and the person colecting it pretended to take it from him so he could give it to eat.

    In the other case (Rabbi Akiva’s daughter) there was some kind of celebration going on, and a beggar came to the house and asked for food and his daughter gave him her portion – because everybody else was away.

    So charity preserves someone from death – even an unnatural one. That was the moral.

    The meaning here is: Buying an Obamacare policy is not insurance – it’s charity!!

    How would anyone know??

    The whole ad campaign is a shot in the dark. By people who are in denial about sticker shock.

  72. Okay, just a little health update. Got out of hospital a few hours ago. Everything went well, but instead of two stents, the Doc had to put in three. That makes a total of 5 for the past two weeks. I’m glad that I still have employer health insurance and not Ibamacare, would probably have been given a pain pill and sent home to wait for the Grim Reaper!
