As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

The Best Explanation of Obamacare I’ve Seen

This video has gone viral, and I wanted to make sure you saw it. The woman, a doctor, was the warmup act for Gov. Mitt Romney at one of his events.

She’s a candidate for the Illinois state Senate, but they ought to take her on the road.

  1. Wow. I hope she wins.

    OT: a little
    My Doctor for the last 15 years told me that his medical group of 10 doctors won’t be taking any new Medicare or Medicaide patients when/if Obamacare does go forward. Not good news for anyone.

    • That penalty sucks. My husband had a very successful hip replacement, he was walking the next day. Kept up with his rehab and exercises, feeling great. About 3 weeks later, he developed a blood clot in his leg and had to be readmitted for a few days. These things happen, it was no one’s fault.

      I don’t blame the doctors or the hospitals for dropping medicare with these strings and penalties attached, so what we’ll have are giant government public hospitals, like the ones Michelle Obama sent the poor people to when she worked for that hoity-toity private hospital in Chicago.

      • That “hoity-toity” hospital, aka the University of Chicago Hospital, is supposed to be a not-for-profit hospital. Surprisingly. it made $100 million a year during the time that Michelle worked there.

      • What will happen is that if you show up in the emergency room within the penalty period, they’ll put a band aid on you and send you home. The hospitals themselves will be the unwitting death panels.

  2. Great video, Keith. How ironic that she is running for the Senate in Illinois.

    Just went for my annual check-up last week. There is a little plaque at the receptionist desk: “Sorry, we are not accepting new Medicare patients”.

    Romney beats Obama – 55-36 in physician election poll:

  3. Can Mitt just play that at the debates tonight whenever ObamaCare comes up?

    Thanks for the morning laugh (although it is very scary, too).

  4. Brilliant, Keith ! Humour is a great weapon, in politics and in life. And there is so much to poke fun at about that Mussolini character presently in the White House.

  5. Thanks for posting this, I hadn’t seen it yet. This physician is 100 percent correct and funny as well.

    On that note:

    A new survey shows Mitt Romney with a commanding lead over President Barack Obama among doctors, with Obamacare helping to sway their votes.

    If the election were held today, 55 percent of physicians reported they would vote for Romney while just 36 percent support Obama, according to a survey released by Jackson & Coker, a division of Jackson Healthcare, the third largest health care staffing company in the United States

    Fifteen percent of respondents said they were switching their vote from Obama in 2008 to Romney in 2012. The top reasons cited for this change was the Affordable Care Act and the failure to address tort reform.

    • …Susan Crown describes Romney as follows:

      ~~“I have been blessed in my life to work with some of the most capable mentors and leaders. And I think I can spot them at this point. He is extraordinary. He is smart. Capable. Focused. Driven. Principled. Humane. Clear. He’s a gentleman. And to have a person of his quality? We ought to jump on this opportunity to get someone of his quality elected.”~~


  6. Thank you, Keith. Humor is always the best medicine. “So what the blank could possibly go wrong?” If Obama is reelected we’re going to see how wrong things can really get in the healthcare arena.

    The new Medicare rule of heavy fines for hospital readmission within 30 days will be the death warrant for many elderly who already have to deal with getting pushed out of the hospital too soon. My elderly MIL is very healthy for her age, but when she gets sick she gets sick fast. We will go into debt to pay her health care expenses before we allow her to be effectively euthanized by the state.

  7. Having recently been in the hospital the changes are shocking and potentially
    dangerous. Keep your Dr sure if you want to be lucky enough to see him in
    th office but the hospital I went to they use ‘hospital Dr’s’. These are not your
    family Dr mine had a degree from a tropical island and not once did I get a
    straight answer out of her. I cringe to think what other little time bombs are in
    the Obamacare nightmare. The whole thing puts your life in the hands of the government not a Dr. I felt very scared in the hospital more a prisoner than a
    patient. I was going for a new knee but not now.
