“Look, you think Obamacare’s a big enough threat to this country that you need to shut down the government over it? Fine. Own it.” ~ Jon Stewart, The Daily Show

I don’t know what’s going on with my blog. All of my fonts look weird, and the hulu edit I did for the clips below doesn’t seem to be working; i.e. the first video should be 8 minutes and 6 seconds long………

Obamacare: Nazis, Kutcher, and Cruz . . . oh my!

I am so sick of those fallacious commercials in which someone is looking earnestly into the camera and telling the world how Obamacare is going to ruin their lives, keep their child from getting necessary medical care, and otherwise making bald-faced statements not of fact. Yes, Obamacare is not perfect. Yes, it could use some serious tweaking. But no, it’s not going to send our elderly to death camps, and no, it’s not going to keep you from getting the treatment you want/need from the physicians you choose.

What it is going to do is help people like me and my son Brett who have pre-existing conditions.

And by the way, all of those claims that Obamacare has led to this crisis or that crisis? How is that possible when it doesn’t even begin to take effect until October 1st of this year? And why, oh why, are the Nazis always dragged into any Republican argument.

Bah, I say. Bah.
