It’s a shame that ABC’s infomercial for Obamacare bombed so badly in the ratings. It provided genuine moment of clarity.

A skeptical physician asked Obama if he would be willing to submit his own family to the limitations of a public plan such as he has proposed for the rest of us:

Devinsky asked the president pointedly if he would be willing to promise that he wouldn’t seek extraordinary help for his wife or daughters if they became sick and the public plan he’s proposing limited the tests or treatment they can get.

Guess how the President answered:

The president refused to make such a pledge, though he allowed that if ‘it’s my family member, if it’s my wife, if it’s my children, if it’s my grandmother, I always want them to get the very best care.’

In other words, the President wasn’t willing to commit his own loved ones to the tender mercies of his own public plan.

That’s all you need to know about Obamacare.

    You know why I am certain a public plan would be great for me.?
    Because every member of Congress has one.
    And you know that members of Congress aren’t going to stand for anything less than the best for them and their families.
    If it’s good enough for Congress…It’s good enough for me.

    I find it humorous to listen to folks like Senator Grassley rail against a public plan when you and I pay for $75 dollars out of every $100 dollars of HIS healthcare premiums

    Go to youtube and watch how defensive he got when a member of the audience asked him about that.

    His answer will just kill you!!!
