A post by Maynard, in anticipation of Obama’s upcoming address

DizzyDocs1I’m going to go out on a limb and assume Mr. Obama will harp on the shortcomings of evil insurers in order to push for his intrusive, bureaucratic, life-threatening, budget-busting, divisive, wasteful, unpopular “public option”. However, he won’t consider curbing tort abuse or benefits for non-citizens. Action on those last points, although it would be applauded by a supermajority of Americans of all political affiliations, would require an unthinkable challenge to the powerful special interests that feed at the public trough. (Trial lawyers donate big bucks (mostly to Democrats), and represent the biggest (and, IMO, the most parasitical) of the big interests.)

DizzyDocs2Okay, I can’t be serious anymore, so let’s relax for a moment. I’m not sure whether to applaud or lament those artistic pundits that apparently have a bit too much time on their hands.

Above you see the original “Dizzy Doctors” placard.  (Yes, it’s real; you’ll find it on YouTube: Part 1 and Part 2. That second part paints a vivid picture of what sort of medical care we can look forward to if daddy gets his way. Before he’s through with us, we’ll be begging for end-of-life counseling.)

Below it there’s the clever updated placard (from this blog). The Stooges are back with a vengeance!

    The “public option” is chock full of tort reform!!

    Remember that you can’t sue the government.

    So, once the government-run health care is passed you can’t sue the doctor after he offs your grandmother. The doctor is protected because he works for the government. The bureaucrat who ordered the doctor not to provide any medicine or treatment to grandma and let her die is also immune from prosecution because he works for the government.

    Tort reform is to cut down on the number of lawsuits. When you can’t sue the doctor or bureaucrat because they work for the government then the number of lawsuits is Zero. Tort reform indeed.

  2. Ya know something? If I weren’t so busy I’d buy some photoshopping software…it looks like fun. Nanacy Pelosi DOES look better with her head shaved.

      Are you so sure this scalped Pelosi image has been Photoshopped? Maybe this is her true appearance, and it’s the pictures showing her with hair that are the fakes!

    “Remember that you can’t sue the government.”

    You can sue the government with its “consent,” i.e., if a statute or contract allows for it: that’s a waiver of sovereign immunity. The plaintiffs’ bar is the single largest owner of the Democratic Party, so you seriously think they’re going to be written out of this?

    • JHSII says:

      I am reminded of the Jews that supported Hitler in the years before WWII. It didn’t keep them out of the gas chambers.

      The lawyers will just switch targets – like big corporations (Microsoft) or people who don’t want government Obama-Care.
