President Out-Of-Touch: When choosing a Medicare plan, it helps to kick the tires

Sometimes you can't even win with hand-picked supporters. Here is President Out-Of-Touch Moron explaining Medicare pricing to senior citizens in Maryland on March 15:
This guy has got a great question because really what he's talking about is transparency in pricing. When you go buy a car, you know exactly what they're going to charge you.
Uh oh. The audience responds with spontaneous, derisive laughter.
Well, sometimes you don't know.
More laughter.
Well, you negotiate with them.
Nice going, Monkey Boy. Dig yourself in deeper. More laughter from the audience.
Well, they put something on the window that says price.
Another volley of laughter.

Boy, you can smell the smoke all the way over here as POTUS-brain synapses strain to find one another. Think hard, man -- what did it say on Karl's flash-cards?
His point is, is that the more you know about price, the better you can make better decisions, and I appreciate that.
It's here that Bush's finely-honed fight-or-flight instincts kick in:
Listen, you're paying me a lot of money to work, and so I think I'm going to have to head back home. But I'm honored. Got any more questions, I'll be glad to answer them.
Run away! Run away!
