Nancy Pelosi speaks, Rosie O’Donnell listens, national bankruptcy ensues

by editor on January 8, 2011

These two short videos pretty much sum up sad situation we find ourselves in with ObamaCare.

In the first clip, Nancy Pelosi tells the fawning press that the Democrats would have passed ObamaCare “even if everyone was happy with their health coverage.” For once, Pelosi unwittingly told the truth, because polls at the time showed that somewhere north of 80% of Americans were satisfied with their healthcare prior to ObamaCare.

To see your unfortunate medical future, watch the second video.

We learned from the Radio Equalizer that Rosie O’Donnell has a satellite radio program. Yeah, we were as shocked as you are, but not as shocked as Rosie was when she got a phone call from a Canadian listener who started off by praising Canada’s universal healthcare system and then revealed that she had been waiting for gastric bypass surgery for seven years and may have to wait several more years.

Caller: It’s not considered an emergency surgery–

O’Donnell: Oh, OK.

Caller: It’s considered elective, so if it was an emergency surgery, it would be a lot quicker. To see any kind of specialist is at least a few months, you’re not going to get into see somebody next week.

O’Donnell: If you called and sort of were persistent in saying to them, ‘I really need this’ … it doesn’t change the [waiting] list order.

Caller: … They’re telling me, by the way, it’s gonna be another two or three years … There’s still about 2,000 people ahead of me.

We recall Pelosi’s previous statement that “We had to pass the bill to find out what’s in it” and think to ourselves, “No, you don’t. Just look across our northern border.”

All anyone needs to understand about “Socialized Medicine” is: The Elite have doctors at their beck and call, while the commoners set around waiting their turn for service. The true point of “Socialized Medicine” is to create an environment in which the majority of sick commoners expire before their opportunity to receive treatment arrives. And the best part of the “Socialist Shuck & Jive” is the Elites tax the commoners into paying for the privilege of waiting around until treatment is no longer an option.

I must be tired… whatever Pelosi said made ABSOLUTELY no sense to me at all… She is basically saying though that this had to pass in order for them to have more regulation.

So… after 7 years she haven’t even had an initial conversation with the doctor?

is this woman INSANE? She sounds like she has been brainwashed.

It only takes a few months to see a specialist, what’s wrong with that? Why did we wait so long for Obamacare? Thank you Dems.

Hey man, put the doobie down, open your windows and let some fresh air in. The only libtard idiots who make comments like yours are the ones who don’t pay for their own medical insurances. If you are actually a productive member of this society, you know, one who pays as they go, then this is a dangerous and stupid idea who’s day came and went over a century and a half ago. You imbeciles are so retro!

LOL barring the small possibility he was being facetious… your post was hilarious!

Nothing should take a few months and definetly not a year regardless of the procedure being elective. Unless we are talking something seriously out there like sex change obviously there you want to take your time ad go see a psychoanalyst quick and I mean quick not waiting a few months to see one either.
