Marie Antoinette would have blushed in shame:

Blame Texas, because the solution to your wonderful, amazing new law pricing people out of being able to afford health insurance is obviously to take what were previously self-supporting citizens and put them on the dole?
If I were the man to whom Marie up there was talking to, my response to his passing of the buck to the State of Texas would be “I don’t want to BE on the dole! I was paying my own way – I was HAPPILY paying my own way – until you came along and fucked my chances of being able to do so all to hell with your misnamed “affordable” healthcare act, and now your solution to having destroyed my ability to pay my own way and be a net contributor to our society is to put me on the dole? To strip me of my dignity and make me a parasite? THAT is your grand solution, you fucking self-worshipping neophyte!?”

Then, of all things, suggest that the man cancel his telephone service so that he might be able to afford your new, improved, insanely expensive healthcare plans? If that isn’t the “let them eat cake” moment of the 21st century, I don’t know what is. Good fucking lord, man, I am absolutely at a loss. How did this man even learn how to potty train, much less manage to elevate himself to the most powerful position in the free world?
As if it is Marie’s place, or any person in the government’s place to dictate priorities in bill payment to private citizens – to have health insurance or to be able to communicate with people (possibly a pre-requisite for the man’s job, to begin with).
This man is absolutely convinced that he has life figured out for everyone else; that no one's life deviates from his narrow views of what life should be one iota. No wonder socialism always fails - you get men like this in charge, who have these myopic, one size fits all views about life, and can't for the life of him figure out why anyone would want to live a life different from the one he proscribes.
