Healthcare Debate Between Two Unlikely People

Posted by TheJOTUS on December 4, 2009

Quite possibly one of the more surreal videos you will ever see.  The way they are sitting in those “S” shaped chairs is just freaking weird.

Shatner: “How……do you……know???
Rush: Dammit Jim, I’m the number one rated political talk show host, not a doctor!!!

Heh.

But seriously.  How do we know, Bill?  Are you kidding?

Obamacare is a clear example of how there are winners and losers here.  If you’ve got insurance, you’re a loser.  Congratulations, you will now basically have a complete stranger’s health care added to your premiums as if he’s a member of your family, because you can afford it.

If you don’t have insurance, you may be a winner… sort of.   On the one hand you come out ahead — free money!  Woo hoo! — but on the other, the health care overall is driven to a lower quality.  So Mr. and Mrs. I-Ain’t-American get the same shitty care as I do because it waters down the product.

This is and always will be about one thing.  A direct transfer of wealth, and the services that wealth buys, from the middle class to the lower class.   And that is plenty of reason for the uninsured and poor to support this plan.

Like I said before Bill, with the millions you have made over the years, why don’t you buy some of the uninsured a quality plan that pays their medical bills for a year?  Maybe even convincing a few of your friends to do the same:
