Unlike Morpheus in the "Matrix" Obama is offering nothing but a pack of lies and misinformation in regards to his health care reform bill.
During Wednesday night's televised presser to push his health care bill, Obama used a scenario of diabetics showing up at emergency rooms to have their feet amputated to demonstrate the need for primary care for uninsured Americans -- as if diabetics really do show up at emergency rooms regularly to have their legs taken off because they don't have a primary care physician.
The reality is that diabetics who aren't insured can apply for medicare or medicaid. I haven't met a diabetic yet who isn't under the care of a primary physician. Even homeless diabetics are assigned a primary care physician at Grady hospital.
He also accused doctors of scheduling tonsillectomies for children so the doctor could make more money. He suggested checking the child for allergies instead!!
Obama made it clear that under ObamaCare your doctor will have to find other alternatives to performing surgery that could save your life or the life of your child. But Obama has no problems sending money to other countries for abortions!
Obama uses unnecessary scare tactics to illustrate the urgency of his agenda, which is to socialize medicine as a first step to forcing our dependency on big government.
