Jon Lovitz continues to fight for small business, slams Obamacare: ‘It’s how it’s being paid for’

Heh. Bingo!

Comedian and actor Jon Lovitz continues to stand up for small business owners. Post-election, he let the well-deserved snark fly at President Obama. The snark was followed by concern for all those who are being crushed by President Obama’s policies. You see, Jon understands business, unlike the liberals who constantly attack him. He understands the devastating effect Obamacare has on small businesses; he also understands that when businesses are harmed, so are the people whom that business employs. Or, used to employ; many are being forced to close their doors.

But, you know, reality is hard for some. Lovitz took to Twitter again today to try to provide some Teachable Moments ™ for those who insist upon being wilfully ignorant.

No, they don’t. They’d rather stick their heads in the race card-laden sand and screech “raaaaacist.” And threaten to boycott businesses that are forced to make cuts or contemplate hiring freezes. Because that is super helpful. Common sense is hard!

Unreal. They just don’t get it.


Lovitz ends with a question for the Obama cultists.

Huh. Fancy that.

Get ready, America. The fight must continue.

As for how it’s being paid for?

Gee. Who could have seen that coming?

Thank you, Jon, for fighting the good fight and for trying to explain things to those who refuse to use their thinkies.

        Haha this whole administration is just begging to be parodied. Too bad the media is now spineless and won’t do it.

  • conservativechick

    Obviously none of these people understand Socialized Health care. They think it’s FREE from the government? The TAX PAYERS ARE the government. It’s OUR money and the more people they add the less HEALTH CARE we all get. You can’t spend more than you take in. SEE this is how it always works. Democrats just don’t get it. When NO ONE is employed and can’t PAY IN…. who pays? Layoffs and closings on the rise now.

    • Chelsey

      You hit the nail on the head. “Wait you mean someone actually has to PAY for our free healthcare?!”

      • RightThinking1

        Yeah. I just can’t wait for all of those 20-somethings to start getting their bill for the $45/mo. ‘tax’ in 2014. The squealing will be heard everywhere.

        • MominMich

          If mom and dad would take them off their insurance we could hear the squealing now

    • EastValleyConservative

      These people do not get it. Never will. We aren’t dealing with brilliance–nor do they have the common sense to look up the population in Canada versus here. Not only is is massively smaller—it’s still an abject failure, taxes are super high, and you get NOTHING for it.

    • sandi730

      Exactly if you only have $10.00 you don’t get to spend $100.00. People are really not thinking these days!! Really tired of those standing around with their hands out!!

    • conservativechick

      This just in.. the amount of tax Obama says he will ask for is…… won’t even BELIEVE this one……1.6 TRILLION dollars in new tax revenues!! You think even ONE penny of that will go toward the deficit? NOPE. They NEED it to pay for Obamacare. That is TRILLION, with a T. That tax increase will not be reserved for only the very wealthy among us, as they LIE again! Fees and regulations will force YOU to pay, as well.

    • John

      What’s really interesting is how the layoffs are met with charges of racism. A logical person might scratch his head and wonder how anyone could make such a connection. It boils down to why they want nationalized health care in the first place. The primary reason they want it, why they’ve always wanted it, was to give free healthcare to inner-city blacks. That’s why if you’re against Obamacare you’re a “racist”–it’s because in their minds it’s always been primarily about helping inner-city blacks, so if you’re against that then you must be against them. Conversely, if you’re not one of *their* intended beneficiaries, of course you’ll pay more; it was never structured or intended to benefit anyone else except accidentally. To all those college kids who wanted to be idealistic: congratulations, you just got suckered, and your lifespan will be shorter and your lives will be poorer as a result.

      • BeautifulAmerica

        ..and ILLEGALS, who are robbing families of our rights to healthcare for our children.

  • Chris Chambers

    Even the Canadian said “It’s free, but it takes months to get an appointment.” Since when is a government supplied “service” considered “free”. Free stuff is V-E-R-Y expensive.

    • Canadian in USA

      As a Canadian now living in the US, I’ve seen the better health care here than back in Canada. When the Government controls the health care and sees how expensive it gets, taxes goes up and covered services go down…so does quality. With no recourse.

      • EastValleyConservative

        Exactly–but I am willing to bet you are called a liar all day long by the left who wants this nonsense here. I can imagine how disappointed you are at this point. I am sure it is not the reason you left, but it has to be a bonus to get away from.

    • Gord Higham

      Buddy said ‘free’ because Canada is jammed full of the same type of morons who have been convinced that governments earn their own money instead of forcibly extracting it from the citizen’s wealth.

  • douchie

    Greedy businessmen thinking that their priority is to make profits, when their first duty is to fill the needs of society. We will never create utopia if individuals believe that their main responsibility is to themselves and their family. The successful owe us…

    (overheard in occupy camps and certain government offices)

    • boxerpaws

      you are correct-we will NEVER create Utopia. that was the point of More’s Utopia. Now if you really want to delve into this read Mark Levin’s Ameritopia.HIghly recommend.

      • TexSizzle

        That’s why he named it “Utopia”: utopia is Latin for no place.

    It was free. I couldn’t believe it. Someone just paid for my surgery today. and … Then someone else paid for my car. and … Then someone else gave me tickets to the Yankees.

    Kind of like the commercial starting with the job interview … and …and …and …and

  • DavidKramer

    Careful folks, Lovitz and others are going to pull out the next step they really want. Government ran health care. The only thing worse than mandated insurance is government mandated health care. Because we all know that government ran health care is free right? Funny thing, when someone can force others to provide a service or labor, it used to be called slavery, now it is called socialism.

  • Wigglesworth111

    $700 billion is being taken from Medicare providers to pay for Obamacare, but they say it won’t affect beneficiaries. It is simply impossible to take that money out and not see a reduction in services and fewer doctors.

    • RightThinking1

      Yeah, I am one of those. My Advantage plan evaporates at the end of next year. The same is true for something like 20% of Medicare recipients…, boy are they in for a surprise. Moreover, here’s something younger people may not know. Medicare is not ‘free’, Medicare recipients must pay a fee for it…, and it’s not an option. The medicare fee is deducted from your SS payment, automatically, no choice. How much is that fee? In 2011 it was ~$104, in 2012 ~$108, in 2013 ~$112. In other words, it is creeping up. Not surprisingly, SS creeps up also, just about enough so that the increases track each other in dollars, but leaving SS recipients with less spending power.
      Oh, and BTW, my co-payments (under my Advantage plan) have gone up this year…, everyone’s has. Curious, since the President *promised* that costs would go down.

      • EastValleyConservative

        Not a shock in the least. Keep in mind though, those that voted for this have absolutely NO idea what you are talking about and the usual response to something they have no clue about is either “you’re a racist”, “you’re a fear mongerer” (even though you have direct knowledge of it taking place) or “you’re just mad Obama won”. Take your pick. If you do happen to get a response that delves into actual numbers, it usually is about “but the Republican’s plan…” or something that has no actual relevance to what you just said.

      • Robin Nelson-Herlihy

        I feel for you RightThinking1 because that is happening to my parents now. And my hudband’s health plan is about to go up again. We pay $800/month, and is about to jump to $1000/month. It isn’t fair, we will pay for the lazy ones to get care that is going to be dumbed down for everyone. And the Right was not implying that Medicare and retired persons on SS are the ones taking from the tax payers. The retirees have earned these services and it’s sad that it’s being taken away to supliment Obamacare. We will probably be worse than Canada. And by the time I’m ready to retire, SS and Medicare will be no more.

  • Gord Higham

    Canadian Healthcare is a total disgrace and ‘Obamacare’ will be our system on steroids. It won’t happen overnight but a cold hard dawn will arrive when basic services that were available in mere days will have turned into months, waiting lists for surgeries will stretch for a year or be postponed indefinitely due to a lack qualified doctors or cancelled outright. Hospitals will close Emergency Wards due to under staffing, entire floors will close because nurse shortages mean they can’t keep the patients in beds, 2 and 3 year wait lists for long term nursing home beds and this is at the start of the baby BOOM generation hitting maximum healthcare usage. I could go on and on and on…………

    Fear mongering? Scare tactic? No the harsh reality of just my little city on the Prairies. It is a disaster of epic proportions and our political class is so weak kneed and cowardly they can’t face the truth and actually build a system that frees people from the bondage of ideology.

    America was once such a place, some say it could be again but until then prepare yourself and your family because something wicked this way comes, believe it.

  • KansasGirl

    Lovitz has no reason to lie…he can afford the best medicine money can buy.
    Us, not so much.

  • MarcoAurelius

    The first order of business is to take back mass media. Everyone who voted for Romney should turn off NBC completely. In order to survive they should be forced to return to journalistic objectivity. If the mass media had covered this stuff like they would have if a Republican had proposed it, Obama would not have been reelected.

    • J. Cox

      Actually..its the education system that needs to be taken 1st.When they start brainwashing at 6 y/o.,CNN doesn’t have to lie very well to keep the zombies feeding from the trough.

    • BeautifulAmerica

      Write them this every day, every one.

    • Robin Nelson-Herlihy

      Marco, I’ve done just that! No NBC in my house. And to boot, I also cancelled HBO because of Bill Maher. I won’t condone that liberal hatred. They try to turn it on Conservatives, that we don’t care and are hateful racists. When it’s them that use scare tactics and humiliate those that think differently. These libs and the media thinks they are untouchable…..I say HA, cause people are fed up and are doing some or more of what I have done.

  • Tiffany Ross

    My insurance went up so I can pay for other people to have insurance? We barely get by and we have a child who has required heart surgeries and will require more. How is this in any way right? I don’t get why liberals think it’s ok. We were responsible in having insurance and trying to pay the bills, then the cost went up and we’ve fallen so far behind in being able to pay the medical bills. And people wonder why I, with a child who has a serious condition, have hated Obamacare from the start. It only benefits people who have nothing while trying to drag those of us who work hard down to their level. :( All I have to do is have another kid and boom! qualify for EVERYTHING. But that would be irresponsible at the moment.

    • Linda Voris

      Same thing here Tiffany, my employer dropped healthcare coverage, I had to pick up my own, $420.00 per month with co pays and $1,000.00 deductible. It’s like a mortgage, seems like I am working to pay for healthcare. It really sucks, my take home pay has shrunk so much, I am considering quitting and signing up for the freebies as well, however, I was raised to be responsible and I will continue working and paying for everyone else, after all “It’s only fair” in the words of our President. Hubby had radiation last year (He’s on Medicare) and I am still paying for that and will be paying $200.00 per month for 3 more years. I am 59 and can’t even think about retirement, I have no pension, worked since I am 16 and can’t even depend on Social Security (that I have paid into all of my life). But then again “Everyone should have a fair shot”…He can go suck a** as far as I am concerned, he does not deserve respect for what he is doing to the middle class. Just dragging us all down trying to make us dependent on the government. BTW, the entitlement group, receive up to $60,000.00 annually in government assistance per family….Now that is really fair, and well over the annual salary I earn. Food stamps alone up to $800.00 per month. I could go on and on…..but…..oh well I am a conservative Democrat, who did not vote for this guy, not because of his race, but because he is dragging MY COUNTRY DOWN INTO THE GUTTER. God Bless America and the few patriots that still inhabit it.

    In Canada healthcare is a state issue, not a federal one. What we will get will be far worse than what the Canadians have. Their healthcare isn’t really free anyway, they pay for it with payroll taxes. The biggest difference is that they have a far lower percentage of freeloaders and only 1/10th the population of America.

  • dunst43

    I live in Canada. Health care procedures are rationed. We have no other choice than to go to the US when we are denied care here, and now even that option is disappearing. You were the last, best hope on Earth. Now it’s almost over.

  • Bob Khan

    Wow, a Democrat that isn’t stupid, I’m impressed!

  • Jimni27

    My husband almost took a very well paying job in Canada years ago but got a last minute one in the states. He was told by MANY employees already working there that universal healthcare sucked and if they had to see a doctor, they went across the border to the states because it was downright impossible to see a doc when you needed one. It’s funny but when I saw Crowders video on Obamacare, it was exactly how they described it.

  • BeeKaaay

    Jon Lovitz is a really funny guy.

    REALLY. He is in the real world here.

  • plus_tips

    Canada only has 1/8th of the US population and even then there’s so much waiting time for medical care, which is how it’s in Socialist Countries. Anybody who still denies Obummer is not a Socialist needs to be punched in their Mouth. I believe Obamao when he said he’s bad in math, because only someone who’s that bad in math would think there would be enough Doctors to care for 315 million people.

    • DavidKramer

      Here is something to think about, in the past 10 years the US has absorbed in immigrants, both illegal and legal, the entire Canadian population.

  • Mickey James

    The left’s message about health insurance is so people don’t go bankrupt after a major illness, I have never heard of an illegal alien filing for bankruptcy after racking up huge medical bills.

  • plus_tips

    BTW, illegal aliens will be exempt from purchasing Oblamer Care! Therefore the whole reason for rolling out Obummer Scare is for nefarious reasons. Don’t be shocked if euthanasia, sterilization, 1 child policy is in Commie Care, after all no one has completely read it yet.

  • GTJessop

    When my life is on the line, I don’t want “free” life saving care… After all, you get what you pay for.

  • Lidsamy

    We had a conference call yesterday, my company is able to hold the line in premiums, after having risen 21% since BHO signed this, co-pays up 41%, going way up across the board in 2013 and the other big shoe has yet to drop

  • o0Nighthawk0o

    I tweeted earlier about my wife’s health insurance at her work. Her re enrollment came up and for insurance with a $1500 deductable for the family per year, 70/30 coverage and copays will cost each employee over $1000 a month. This is almost double what it was 2 years ago. The reason being is because of Obamacare. Private insurance is going to be priced so high that people won’t be able to afford it.
    Thankfully I have much better insurance through my job and much cheaper but I don’t expect that to last. Our re enrollment is coming up and I am scared to death as to what is going to happen to our rates.

  • Kate

    It’s true- I grew up in the Metro Detroit area and there were always nurses from Canada working at the hospital downtown. Both the pay and quality of care was superior in the US.

    You would think Obama would have picked up on that during his numerous taxpayer-funded trips around the world.

  • GwenB

    Remember what Woodstock looked like after a couple days? The summer of love in SF? That’s who is running the country and we are going to end up just like that. A massive mess, except there will be nobody left to pick up the pieces and repair the country.

  • Robert Phelps

    If ObamaCare is such a great healthcare system, then why have all the leaders in Congress opted out of it? Hmmmmmm

    When government forces legislation on a people whom the majority of said people have voted against, you have tyranny. We got rid of the tyrants once before and it is time to do so again.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Please stop confusing health care as in medical care with health insurance coverage. Everyone pretty much can get medical care, it’s the paying for it that’s the issue here. The ObamaScareTAX is not about getting medical care–it’s about dictating to us how it will be paid for and it’s in the process already of destroying the extraordinary medical care system we have which like it or not is as good as it is due to capitalism and competition and good old American ingenuity and those are the very things that the Slacker-Deadbeat-in-Chief despises and wants to destroy. So what’s the point of having health insurance coverage if there won’t be any medical care to be gotten?

  • Art Staehling

    I really think before you are allowed to vote people should be made to pick the policies for which their candidate stands. A basic civics lesson wouldn’t hurt. They have no glue where the money Gov spends comes from and that it is not a bottomless pit..

  • VAMOM2

    Many that I have talked to have already gotten notices from their employers that they can’t afford to offer them healthcare of the same quality at the same price. My brother in Florida was just informed that his company is “transitioning” them to a high deductible HSA, which will cost him an additional $280 a month, going from around $600 to close to $900. My husband just met with the owners of his company yesterday to discuss how they will be able to continue offering healthcare to their employees going forward. In order to offer the same bennies, it will double their cost as employers. This is absolutely insane. I guarantee these conversations are going on in every corner of every legitimate business in this country(well, except for those thousands that were granted f$%#% waivers). Explain to me again…how is this train wreck supposed to save people/employees money?

    • lambomech

      it never did and never will save money, there is no explanation for the $@%^#* thing. at list no normal explanation.


    I think the Repubs will live to regret renaming health care,
    “ObamaCare”. In doing so, they’ve only ensured that this President
    will forever be associated with, and given credit for this major achievement in
    the history of our nation. Thanks Repubs, wish I’d thought of it
