Oh no. Now not only I gotta be sick, but I gotta listen to my nurse drone on about Obamacare.
Here’s what Michelle Obama said in a “conference call” with “nurses from across the country.” It’s part of her launch as a pitchwoman for her husband’s policies, effectively another White House operative.
While it was supposed to be a “conference,” it doesn’t appear Michelle took any questions. Much of her remarks were devoted to touting Obamacare. And then this.
So those are just some of the examples of what’s in the law. But in order for this law to make a real difference in people’s lives, we have to make sure that people know about these reforms and that they take advantage of them. And that’s why we need your help in spreading the word.
So we’re asking you all get involved in this outreach effort. Talk to your patients about how these reforms can help them. Also, talk to your colleagues about the best ways to inform patients about what this new law means for them and for their families.
So now I guess I’ll be lying there and, while the doctor is navigating a probe up my butt, if the sedation is not too heavy, the nurse can tell me all about how the health insurance exchanges are going to work.
Great. Honestly, I don’t want to show up in a doctor’s office and have to hear about all this stuff. I just want my nurse to weigh me, see if somehow my height has changed from last time, ask me what I’m here for, and then get the Hell out. You know, depending on how she looks.
