In his healthcare promotion event in Ohio, he said:

All right. Well, a lot of those folks, your employer it’s estimated would see premiums fall by as much as 3,000 percent, which means they could give you a raise.

He’s right about the raise part.

Say your premiums were $10,000 pa. A 1% reduction would cut them to $9,900.  A 10% reduction would cut them to $9,000.  A 100% reduction would cut them to $0.00. A 200% reduction would result in a $10,000 rebate. Do the math. A 3,000% reduction would result in a $2,990,000 rebate.

Our president is completely innumerate. I’m kind of wondering how he would fare in the cockpit of a fighter jet, specifically an early generation supersonic interceptor like the Convair F102.

If Sarah Palin had said anything like that, she’d be crucified by the LSM. But the one, nada.
