With Democrats Like These,
Who needs Republicans?

Obama's Doctor: President's Vision For Health Care Bound To Fail

Dr. David Scheiner, a 70-year Chicago-based physician who treated Obama for more than 20 years, said he was disheartened by the health care legislation his former patient is championing, calling it piecemeal and ineffectual.

"I look at his program and I can't see how it's going to work," Scheiner told the Huffington Post. "He has no cost control. There would be no effective cost control in his program. The [Congressional Budget Office] said it's going be incredibly expensive ... and the thing that I really am worried about is, if it is the failure that I think it would be, then health reform will be set back a long, long time."
"It's a good question," Scheiner said, when asked if having watered-down reform become law was better than getting a single-payer system stalled in Congress. "Is something better than nothing? That is a hard one for me. That is a difficult one, because, in the end, I think [Obama's] program is going to fail."


It's hard to avoid the things that Obama once claimed about health care reform - like how it was going to take a Democratic congress to make the change. Well, the Dems have the "oral office," the senate and the house and they still can't get it done. Or is that they won't? That they choose not to...?

These Dems are a big fucking joke. I doubt any good will come of any of it.
