The Health Care Travails of Citizen Barack Obama

What if Barack Obama were just a normal citizen? A normal, taxpaying schmoe like you and me. These are his stories. These are the travails of Citizen Obama.

Mr. Obama, I'm sorry to say that your wife's mother is suffering from some serious ailments.

We'll need to do an extensive battery of tests. Her white blood cell count is elevated, which could mean a variety of things.

Also, it appears she needs a hip replacement.

Doctor, thank you. Even though this is family, I don't want you to go to extraordinary lengths.

You know what? We should cut costs.

It pains me to say this, but don't do any tests.

Don't give her that expensive drug. It treats a rare disease and is very expensive. The last thing I'd want to do is run up costs for other Americans.

No, she's getting up there in years, and according to Ezekiel Emanuel's "Complete Lives System", she's consumed enough of our precious community health care resources.

No, we're not going to go to the Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins or some other top-notch facility.

Who am I to demand cutting-edge treatment? Those extra tests? Cutting-edge drugs? No, we don't want any of those.

And look. She's 79, for heaven's sake. Forget about the hip replacement.

She can handle it, she's tougher than nails.

Look, bottom line: just give her some painkillers. It's the progressive thing to do.

What would be more fitting is if senior citizen Obama has HIS care rationed (in his prison cell).

Lung cancer from the smokes? Tough break,'eh? No use wasting chemo on it. But here's a couple of ibuprofen for the bone pain.

Robespierre got his just desserts after murdering so would be a nice symmetry if Obama, who promotes letting someone stay n agony and just take pain meds, was forced to do the same.

Same goes for Pelosi and the rest of the immoral bastards. If they force this horrible thing on us, when we get the chance, we should force them off their gold-plated Congress insurance and let 'em do without, and ration THEIR care.

Hell, you want to torture San Fran Nan? Take away the several million dollars of military jet time she's requisitioned to fly her and her family around at her whim. Make her fly coach. It'll be as bad as waterboarding!

Nancy "Let 'em eat cake" Pelosi is a disgusting excuse for a human being. She is hypocrisy personified.
