Barry's Cousin Pans Obamacare

Posted on November 29, 2011 by


A board-certified diagnostic radiologist, Dr. Milton R. Wolf yesterday ripped Obamacare and one of its leading proponentsDr. Donald M. Berwick.

The good doctor has recently been dumped by the Obama administration – not because he’s a socialist, but because he made it clear. The most open and transparent administration in the history of the country simply can’t abide a man who says things like: “I am romantic about the [British] National Health Service; I love it.” He goes on: “You plan the supply; you aim a bit low; you prefer slightly too little of a technology or a service to too much; then you search for care bottlenecks and try to relieve them.” 

Obamacare: We aim a bit low.

The good doctor has also noted: “any health care funding plan that is just, equitable, civilized and humane must, must redistribute wealth from the richer among us to the poorer and the less fortunate. Excellent health care is, by definition, redistributional.”

This is unacceptable. Not the ideas, of course – but that he talks about them. He thought he was being a team player and supporting the cause, but the blabbermouth was giving away the regime’s game plan. No question about it; he had to go. Rumor has it that he was promoted to Chief Medical Officer for the NASA Mars rover mission, meaning that he was likely strapped to the rover just before lift-off.

Things have got so bad that even stalwarts like Barney Frank are bailing. Okay, Barn barely squeaked through his last election run, and now his district’s been re-drawn to include more (ptooey!) suburban types, who may just tend to lean a bit more to the cinservative side than he’d like – but hey! Ot makes retiring with a fat pension ever so much more appealing, and now Barn’s free to get down to some serious back-stabbing without any encumberances.

So, the day after announcing his retirement, Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Barney Frank announced on Tuesday his support for the repeal of the Independent Payment Advisory Board, a significant portion of President Obama’s health care overhaul. In so doing, Barn became the 12th Democrat, and the 212th member of the House, to co-sponsor Tennessee Republican Rep. Phil Roe’s bill aimed at repealing the IPAB.

The bottom line for Barn seems to be that suddenly, Barry’s not scary, and this is his golden opportunity to break out the knives and perform a little back-room surgery as a form of payback.
