Obama Claims New Health Care Law Will Be 'Cheaper' For Some Than a Cell Phone Bill

News

“Well, because he understood that health care, health security is not a privilege, it’s something in a county as wealthy as ours, everybody should have access to.”

President Barack Obama in a radio interview Tuesday morning boasted that the cost of enrolling in the Affordable Care Act will, “for a lot of people,” be “cheaper” than a cell phone bill.

"We were just talking with some folks earlier about the fact that, for a lot of people, it will be cheaper than your cell phone bill," the president said during an interview on the Tom Joyner Morning Show.

He continued, explaining that it’s important everyone sign up for the new health care law:

The president was asked at one point by the show’s hosts what he thinks civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. would have said about Obamacare.

“Oh he’d like that,” the president said. “Well, because he understood that health care, health security is not a privilege, it’s something in a county as wealthy as ours, everybody should have access to.”
