When it comes to socialized medicine, President Teleprompter will be using private doctors, thank you very much.
Although I didn't watch the Obamacare infomercial on ABC, I did read some incredibly elitist statements by the Dear Leader on abc.com. Great fares to India on Air France!
Here is the relevant quotation:
"Devinsky asked the president pointedly if he would be willing to promise not to seek such extraordinary help for his wife or daughters if they became sick and the public plan he's proposing limited the tests or treatment they can get. The president refused to make such a pledge, though he allowed that if "it's my family member, if it's my wife, if it's my children, if it's my grandmother, I always want them to get the very best care. "
OK, so the rest of us would suffer under Peasant Care, while the elites enjoy the best treatment. Boy, that sounds strangely similar to dictatorships of yore, or the IRS special treatment of Charlie Rangel and Timothy Geithnerof! Compare Long Term Care Insurance Quotes and Save!
Here is the proof that President Teleprompter has absolutely no clue how government competing with private business will destroy private business.
"The president rebuffed that, arguing that "we can set up a public option where they're collecting premiums just like any private insurer and doctors can collect rates," but because the public plan will have lower administrative costs "we can keep them [private insurance companies] honest."
Isn't it nice that he believes private insurance is dishonest? Funny how he also thinks a government-run program will have lower administrative costs. That is hilarious! Perhaps my tin foil hat is on just a little too tight, but perhaps his plan is to have socialized medicine, and this is just the first step to run out private insurance. Cheap? No. 100% Free.

Dear readers, if you wish to stop this free fall into socialized medicine, you better call your elected representatives today and register your complaints. You should also consider voicing your opposition to this cap and trade nonsense.
