Obama: Republican Plan Means Dirty Air, Dirty Water, and Fewer People with Health Insurance

While President Obama has been on his bus/Air Force One tour that is definitely not political, Republicans have been back in Washington plotting how to force everyone to breathe polluted air and drink Ganges river-quality water filtered through used sweat socks, all while denying kids medical care. At least that was the case according to President Obama, who just happened to blurt it out today while doing no campaigning whatsoever:

“The Republican plan says that what’s been standing in the way between us and full employment are laws that keep companies from polluting as much as they want,” Obama said in a speech at the regional airport in Asheville, N.C., on Monday. “On the other hand, our plan [Obama’s plan] puts teachers, construction workers, firefighters and police officers back on the job.”

“My plan says we’re going to put teachers back in the classroom, construction workers back to work rebuilding America, rebuilding our schools, tax cuts for small businesses, tax cuts for hiring veterans, tax cuts if you give your worker a raise,” said Obama. “That’s my plan. Then you’ve got their plan, which is, let’s have dirtier air, dirtier water, less people with health insurance. So far at least, I feel better about my plan.”

In 2000, Saturday Night Live did a version of the Bush/Gore debate, and the Gore character said, “Under my plan, Etta’s prescription drugs would be covered. Under my opponent’s plan, her house would be burned to the ground.”

That was understated satire compared to what’s shaping up to be this election cycle’s reality.
