Obamacare loooooooong, Obamacare baaaaaaaaaaaaaad.
Actor and director Jake McClain has taken on the monumental task of tweeting every single word of the 906-page "Obamacare" health reform law in hopes of drawing attention to the bill's content, which he argues is detrimental to the nation's fiscal health.Because obviously, if something is long, it must be bad.
"Folks ... this will probably take a long time to do, but I decided I will read every page, word by word, of Obamacare, and tweet every word," he tweeted on March 22.Obviously "actor" Jake McClain doesn't have enough going on in his 'acting', 'directing' and 'producing' career if he has the time to undertake this Herculean task.

Yep, maybe we can get some Senators to hit this thing up. Never mind that the House has unsuccessfully voted to repeal 'this thing' over three dozen times. His obliviousness, while cringeworthily embarrassing, is typical for his ilk.
"Thing is that this is for everyone ... A scant few read this sucker. If numbers read it, the story changes," he tweeted Monday night, adding later: "And if we keep reading and tweeting these pages, we can get enough people to hit their senators up on this thing."And what do you know, Obamacare used to be a horrific, "longer than the Bible (the standard literary yardstick)" 2,000 page monstrosity. Somehow by some miracle of modern medicine, it has been suddenly reduced by half to only 906 pages.
This has the "severe" potential to backfire and blow up in famous-actor Jake's face. Flaw in his logic - people could find out what's in this bill and find out they actually like having health insurance.
Since his acting career isn't gaining him fame and fortune, maybe this stunt will work. And would you be surprised to find this quote on his IMDB page:
Personal Quote: There are 99 percenters and there are 1 percenters. Guess which ones tend to make a difference?Yeah. 99%'ers have never made a difference. Asshole.
And never mind supporting his claim that it will negatively impact the nation's fiscal health, he won't be tweeting that part. Let's get your objection straight Jake McClain, it reduces the deficit. Maybe it's your miniscule increase in taxes and your 'fiscal health' that you're objecting to?
