And if Ooga Booga's so called health care program gets shot down by Kongress, he will pitch a bitch on national TV prime time and blame all of us "little misinformed" people for its failure.
What was it the mulatto said during his campaign? "I'm going to change Amerika" or words to that effect. Yeah, the little jugeared bastard is certainly giving it his best shot. If he is successful, then all of us who already have some kind of health insurance are gonna be so fucked.
I can see it now.
My eye doctor: Okay, Mister Bum, your left eye has developed a cataract that needs to be surgically removed. You are of course familiar with the procedure because you had it done to your right eye two years ago. But back then your BlueCross insurance paid for most of the medical fees. Now that we have Ooga Booga Care, it will only cost you a fraction of what you paid the last time. That is the good news.
The bad news is that we will have to schedule your out patient surgery at least three years from now. We have no idea who the surgeon would be at that time. So you will be effectively fifty percent blind when you finally get the procedure. If you live that long....
And so it goes.

A while back an actor, making a movie in Montreal, took his wife with him. While he worked, she played on the ski slope. She fell and banged her head. At first, she was OK but after a while things started changing so they rushed her to the hospital. Montreal and vicinity is 1.5-2 million people and there wasn't a neurosurgeon or facilities anywhere to help this woman. They put her on an emergency life flight to NYC. I knew when they did that she was doomed. (Been there, done that.) When it comes to this type of injury, speed and skill are paramount. Time wasted flying her to NYC sealed her fate. She died.
