Obama Tells Jon Stewart: You Won't Be Able to Choose Your Own Doctor. No, wait . . .

What the President really told Jon Stewart last night was "we have done things that some folks don't know about":
Obama: . . . I look over the last 18 months and I say, we prevented a second Great Depression, we've stabilized the economy — an economy that was shrinking is now growing — we've got 9 months of consecutive private-sector job growth, we have passed historic healthcare reform, historic financial regulatory reform, we have done things that some folks don't even know about —

Stewart: What have you done that we don't know about? [laughter] Are you planning a surprise party for us? "Filled with jobs and healthcare!"
One of the "things" that Obama and his Democrats have done that "some people don't even know about" is that the Democrat Congress has already passed legislation depriving most Americans of their freedom to choose their own doctors. 

Fortune Magazine, where they read the fine print of the 2000+ page Senate bill, explained one "thing" that will happen to most Americans under ObamaCare:
You're assigned a primary care doctor, and the doctor controls your access to specialists. The primary care physicians will decide which services, like MRIs and other diagnostic scans, are best for you, and will decide when you really need to see a cardiologists or orthopedists.
That sounds to me like you'll also need to get the approval of your government-assigned physician to get a second opinion if you aren't happy with the diagnosis and treatment plan provided by the government-assigned doctor.

A little something to think about before you go into the ballot box to endorse ObamaCare by voting for your favorite Democrat candidate.

Thanks for the heads up from Adrienne at Adrienne's Corner.



  1. It sure seems like Obama excels at infringing upon our freedom and liberty - *shrug*. The man is horribly wrong for our country.

  2. great post..thank God for the Conservative rebellion going on eh!

  3. There is SO much in the "health care" bill that has nothing to do with health a civilian quasi-military corps and much more.

    This is one of the greatest infringements on freedom that the governmnet has ever inacted.
