Michelle Obama Talks Insurance Reform

First Lady Michelle Obama speaks in the White House’s East Room on Friday (November 13).

Focusing on issues that older women face in health insurance, Michelle assured older women that a health care overhaul won’t keep them from Medicare benefits and that the change in health care will bring costs down.

“My husband believes that Medicare is a sacred part of America’s social safety net and it’s a safety net that he will protect — he will protect — with health insurance reform,” she said.

Three women, invited by the White House, spoke about personal incidents they’d had with paying for medical coverage and dealing with health insurance problems before the First Lady spoke.

    I guess you must be very jealous that you are not a Princeton graduate who now lives in the White House of the greatest country in the world and is married to a man that loves you completely…..
    Makes sense.

    This is it, this is the last time I am visiting this blog. It has become too political for me. It’s a shame since I have been a fan in the past.

    Love her! She’s so much smarter than her husband. She needs to start making all the decisions just like Hillary did for Bill.

    josephine Says:

    Hey #7, aren’t you overreacting a bit too much to what #5 said? #5′s only talking about belts. MO may be all that you said she is (tho some may not even agree with that), but she possesses no fashion sense whatsoever when it comes to her penchant for wearing belts cinched tightly right under her bustline . And no-one can deny that picture 10 looks particularly dreadful.

    Kim Says:

    Yuck, can’t stand her and know many other people who can’t as well. She’s a mean person and looks it. We all know how she feels about America.

    monkeydo Says:

    hate the belt thing with most of her outfits. Fire her personal asst.

    I believe she overdid the eyebrow lift.

    Annabelle Says:

    Her, Obama , Pelosi and the rest of the #$%^& need to shut up. Unless they give us same insurance covarage as they have, we are screwed. Anybody who thinks this health plan is good idea, you watch. You’ll be crying soon.

    Mary Ring Says:

    I think it is essential that we have affordable health care. Too many people cannot afford it.

    happy girl Says:

    I wish she’d hang up those gawd-awful belts… *sigh* and she had better hair-days. That is absolutely no outfit to promote health care reform to medival US.
