That is what is called a retweet from the official White House Twitter account in which they cite Fox News. I am not sure if that is supposed to be something the TOTUS said today or an attempt by Fox at humor, but I think most clear thinking people by now can recognize satire when they see it. I double checked to be sure that this wasn't something from the fine folks at The Onion News Network.
Still whoever said it, it is funny.
Well ain't I red faced. It appears Barry O said something like that at his sermon, er meeting with the governors today.
"If your state can create a plan that can cover as many people as affordably and comprehensively as the Affordable Care Act does, without increasing the deficit, you can implement that plan and we'll work with you to do it," Obama said.
That's a mighty big if, since not even his plan will reduce the deficit but rather increases it exponentially.
