Michelle Obama on Free Health Care, Doesn't Mention New Taxes

Michelle Obama is stumping for health care and throwing the word "free" around like a frisbee.

FLOTUS says these services will be free after September 23rd, as she obviously believes it, as only a Progressive Democrat can:
“Under this new law, all new private plans will provide basic preventive services — things like childhood immunizations and checkups, mammograms, colonoscopies, cervical screenings, and treatment for high blood pressure — absolutely free of charge. No copay. No deductible. No co-insurance needed,” she wrote.
Maybe we won't pay at the Doctor's office, but some of us will pay with the health care tax the administration is planning as a vehicle to spread our wealth, whether we have it or. If you're not on the tax hit list, don't take much comfort. They will undoubtedly come for you soon, unless you're poor.

Mrs. Obama says her life will be "easier" now that her husband's health care is taking effect.

The first thing I tell people who ask about the Affordable Care Act is that, for moms like me, it makes our lives easier. It gives families control over their own care. And it gives us the comfort of knowing that our insurance will be there when we need it most — especially if we get sick. Then I tell them that it gets better, but there’s a lot to know. To help, this administration has set up HealthCare.gov, where folks can see customized information about how care will improve for their families.
Can't wait for the blowback in October, and again in January when the new taxes hit. Get the White House spin here.
