Here’s Some Exclusive Video of Obamacare

Inspired by this post at HotAir where they note this bit of rhetoric by the Greatest Smartest Speaker Ever

Now, when we pass health insurance reform, insurance companies will no longer be able to place some arbitrary cap on the amount of coverage you can receive in a given year or a lifetime. And we will place a limit on how much you can be charged for out-of-pocket expenses, because no one in America should go broke because they get sick. (Applause.)
And finally — this is important — we will require insurance companies to cover routine checkups and preventive care, like mammograms and colonoscopies — (applause) — because there’s no reason we shouldn’t be catching diseases like breast cancer and prostate cancer on the front end. That makes sense, it saves lives; it also saves money — and we need to save money in this health care system.

Now we all know how many prostate cancers are found by colonoscopies…but leave it to Barry to try and “catch something on the front end” by sticking his big ‘ol Government Paw up your rear end

    Uncle Sugar already likes to stick it to us. Adding colonoscopies to their toolbox would be a minor change.

    An unwelcome one, still minor.

  2. Whoa, Bingley! Where’s your medical expertise! I ASSure you, the Precedent has been thoroughly briefed on what procedures do what, there, Mr. Bean, you stupid, fishy un-American.

    Too bad for you if the gummint medics find those little annoyances like cancer too late. Which makes me wonder: will doctors check your voting record before they decide whether you’re a cost-effective patient?

    Lou Rawls!I loved that guy as a singer. When I was like 19 I bought his 45s.He died recently didn’t he?

  6. kcruella says:

    Most states have laws on the books already that require insurance companies to cover this stuff.

    Maybe the colonoscopies are just a way of checking to be sure no one has any “hidden” assets…kind of like pressuring UBS into giving up the Swiss bank information.

    I foresee mandatory “mattress inspections…just to make sure you don’t have bedbugs, yeah, that’s it, that’s the ticket” in the next few years. And digging up people’s backyards just to make sure nothing “dangerous” is buried there…

    I think sometime earlier this Spring, greg.

    What an awesome voice!

    It’s funny how the only version of that clip I can find is a dubbed one…
