ObamaCare Summed Up in One Sentence

Dr. Barbara Bellar is running for the District 18 state senate seat in Illinois. Dr. Bellar is “not your typical person. Starting out as a nun, she went on to become a Major in the Army, a doctor, a lawyer, and a small business entrepreneur. Her life is encompassed by one phrase — serving others.”

Dr. Bellar is a Republican. It’s important that we get people elected up and down the political spectrum. Deserting a party and not offering a viable alternative is cultural, moral, and political suicide. Will Dr. Bellar win in November? I don’t know. But at least she’s putting everything on the line to work for a win. She’s not standing on the sidelines cursing the darkness.

Here’s some additional background information on Dr. Bellar:

  • Veteran Major, United States Army Reserve. IMA Unit
  • Family Medicine Physician and Addiction Medicine Specialist
  • Adjunct Teaching Faculty, DePaul University,
    Medical Malpractice and Health Law
  • Adjunct Graduate Teaching Faculty, Benedictine University,
    Political and Ethical Issues in Public Health.
  • Masters in Bioethics and Health Policy – Loyola University
  • Licensed Attorney in the State of Illinois
  • Current Graduate Studies in Public Health

As a physician, Dr. Bellar knows something about healthcare. The following is her assessment of the new national healthcare legislation that sums up the program in one long sentence:

So let me get this straight – this is a long sentence.
We are going to be gifted with a health care plan that we are forced to purchase, and fined if we don’t, which reportedly covers 10 million more people without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman doesn’t understand it, passed by Congress, that didn’t read it, but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that is broke. (Loud applause and laughter)
So what the blank . . . could possibly go wrong?
