It seems Obama’s speech writers are confused, or they think we’re too stupid to recognize the difference between free choice and coercion. Then again, maybe it was just a product placement ad when Obama said the following:
Consider that just a couple of weeks ago, Apple rolled out a new mobile operating system, and within days, they found a glitch, so they fixed it. I don’t remember anybody suggesting Apple should stop selling iPhones or iPads or threatening to shut down the company if they didn’t. That’s not how we do things in America. We don’t actively root for failure. We get to work, we make things happen, we make them better, we keep going.
Well Mr President, have you considered that Apple doesn’t force people to buy iPhones? There is no fine for not buying an iPhone, and if you’re not satisfied, you can return it for a full refund. Can you do the same with Obamacare, or any other government dis-service for that matter? No, of course not. With the government, there is no recourse, but we’ll all pay for your shoddy products and services whether we like it or not.
