Everyone seems to be shocked with this exchange. Partisan media is not even talking about it. Well, they are shocked to see that this question was allowed in the ObamaCare infomercial.
Here is the transcript:
DR. ORRIN DEVINSKY, EPILEPSY SPECIALIST: Yes, in the past, politicians who have sought to reform health care have tried to limit costs by reducing tests, access to specialists, but they've not been good at taking their own medicine. When they or their family members get sick, they often get extremely expensive evaluations and expert care.
If a national health plan was approved and your family participated, and, President Obama, if your wife or your doctor became seriously ill, and things were not going well, and the plan physicians told you they were doing everything that reasonably could be done, and you sought out opinions from some medical leaders and major centers, and they said there's another option that you should -- should pursue, but it was not covered in the plan, would you potentially sacrifice the health of your family for the greater good of insuring millions? Or would you do everything you possibly could as a father and husband to get the best health care and outcome for your family?
Obama could have said "Doctor, ObamaCare is going to be the very best health care for my family and millions of Americans." It would have been a baloney but the guy could not even bring himself to say it.
What did he say? Nothing. He avoided giving a direct answer but it was clear that he would seek the best health care for his family even if it is outside of ObamaCare plan. But the way he answered the question also shows that he never ever considered ObamaCare being applied to him and his family.
You see folks, when liberal elites like Obama talk about "public option" or anything starts with the word "public", they mean the stupid ignorant masses. They don't consider themselves in that group of people they call "public". So when they come up with these policies, plans, rules, regulations and laws they always keep themselves exempt.
Barack Hussein Obama will not send his kids to a "PUBLIC" school. Do you think he will keep his family in a "PUBLIC" health care system? Barack Hussein Obama and liberal elites see anything "public" beneath themselves.
You can see this in countries that have "public" health care. We all know that the wealthy come here to the U.S. to get their health care. They have the means to escape the rationing of health care. Guess who else from these countries come to the U.S. when they need a major surgery or any other critical treatment? Yes, you guessed it right: Politicians and bureaucrats. Very same people who came up with the "public" health care scheme that kills their own people. To add insult to injury, they are able to escape the "public" rationing system they created by using the public's money. Yep, tax-payers pay for these politicians and bureaucrats' treatments in the U.S. So don't expect to see Obama and liberal politicians getting in line to get their ration of treatments when they are sick. They will either get in front of the line, making you wait longer or they will have their own special, private health care separate from the "public" rationing system.
This is true for everything these liberal democRAT elites do. They just passed a monstrosity of a bill called cap-and-trade that will only help them get rich. You will end up paying higher taxes, higher utility bills, higher prices for food and everything you buy. You will be forced to lower your living standards. You will end up living in a smaller house, driving a smaller, unsafe car. You will not be able to travel as much as you can. These liberal elites will force you to go back to the 19th century. What about them? The champions of environment, saviours of the earth, al GOREs, Thomas Friedmans, movie stars, TV execs, big business people and people who run these enviro-wacko organiztions; do you think they will lower their standards of living? You wish! They will still live in their big mansions, use their private jets and SUVs. Don't worry, while they have 100s if not 1000s times bigger carbon footprint than yours, they will be buying carbon offsets to help the planet. Since you can afford to buy these offsets, you are doomed to liven in your shit as the rest of the "public" does. Don't ask much about where that "carbon offset" money is going either... It will end up in the funds managed and owned by the same elites who also will be making carbon calculations.
If you want to have a better life for yourself and your family in an elitist liberal democRAT controlled society, better get yourself out of that group called "public" if you can.
