Obama’s answer was rather loquacious
An answer given by President Obama on health care on Friday was rather loquacious.
A woman named Doris asked the President toward the end of a question-and-answer session whether was it wise to add more taxes to us with the health care package.
For which she added that,"We are overtaxed as it is."
To which Obama said, "Well, let's talk about that, because this is an area where there's been just a whole lot of misinformation, and I'm going to have to work hard over the next several months to clean up a lot of the misapprehensions that people have."
He spoke for about 17 minutes and 10 seconds and managed to say about 2,500 words long that included pay-as-you-go rules passed by Congress, commentary on the deficit, COBRA coverage, Congressional Budget Office reports on Medicare waste, the Recovery Act and Federal Medical Assistance Percentages and more to it.
Audience could be seen yawning when he reached halfway through.
It could not be figured out if Obama’s words could manage to change minds but people in the back of the room started to wander off.
Obama was seen accepting for going too long but he said, "I hope I answered your question."
