Anyone who suspected that Pajama Boy was an ironic move intended to stir discussion can rest assured that they’re wrong. Michelle Obama wants us all to be Pajama Boy.

MICHELLE OBAMA: “This is the beauty of it. People have choices. They can go on to the website; they can talk to a navigator; they can learn for themselves what the law means and what it doesn’t mean. And that’s really, really what we want people to do, is educate yourselves. Get that education. Make the choice that’s best for your family, because the options are there. So we are, again, very grateful to you all. And we urge everyone out there who has a story to share it. And we urge people to reach out. And if they’ve signed up their child, then sign up their friends. If you’ve got grandkids, make it a Christmas treat around the table to talk about a little health care. (Laughter.) Ring in the New Year with new coverage.”

None of what she said is actually true. Under Obamacare choices have been reduced, and we’re mandated to buy insurance or face the IRS. You can’t really just go on the website and get coverage. Healthcare.gov is still dysfunctional and isn’t processing payments to insurers. Talking to Obamacare navigators is an exercise in putting your personal information at great risk. The navigator groups are a collection of leftwing activists — think pimp-helping ACORN — that don’t vet employees to make sure there are no criminals in their ranks. The First Lady has therefore just committed what would be considered consumer fraud if she were CEO of a private company.

Thank goodness she’s only half the presidency…

Mrs. Obama may have her holidays confused. Obamacare isn’t a treat, it’s a vast, galactic-scale trick.

Not only will I NOT discuss O'Care during Christmas dinner I will personally kick ass on anyone that brings it up. I hate an upset stomach.

I'm pretty sure Obamacare will come up at Christmas - I doubt the language will be PG13, good thing we still have a kiddie table. The hubby has 6 siblings, on average each family is paying $15K to $20K more next year for less insurance than they had this year. 2 brother in laws will be paying out of pocket for maintenance drugs to the tune of $1800 a month each. Since all of the siblings are business owners, and a couple of them are partners in various ventures - you can do the math on money that won't be spent to hire new employees or purchase goods and services this year.

"Make it a Christmas treat" goes up with "Let them eat cake."

"Make the choice that’s best for your family . . . "
That's not possible since your husband has made the choice for us.

"If you’ve got grandkids, make it a Christmas treat around the table to talk about a little health care."
Yeah, Michelle, that's what kids want to talk about at Christmas - something they don't need & won't even consider for another 20 or 30 years! Is this woman delusional? Does she really think kids want to sit around & talk about healthcare instead of that new bike or that new Red Ryder BB gun? (Yeah, I know the latter is politically incorrect - it's meant to be).

Mrs. Obama is correct about one thing: "a little health care", b/c that's all we're going to get when Obama gets through with us!

She thinks you can warm the kids up with a plate of raw carrots.

What is wrong with these people? The crud doesn't work, is not affordable and no one wants it. We will not be pushing it on our relatives or friends.

Sorry, but a big lump of coal is NOT a Christmas treat.

Oh. Wait. They've bankrupted the coal industry so we don't even get that.
