Default Obamacare Summed Up In One Sentence

Have any of you seen this video? I'm double posting it, here, with the story, and in The Woodshed with just the video. Go right to video here:

Doctor seeking Illinois Senate seat offers brutal diagnosis of ObamaCare in viral video

By Perry Chiaramonte
Published October 02, 2012
FoxNews.com

She's a former nun, an Army major, a lawyer, a college professor and a physician. Now Dr. Barbara Bellar wants to be a state senator from Illinois, and she has one question about ObamaCare.

“What the blank could possibly go wrong?” Bellar asks, tongue in cheek, after delivering a one-sentence indictment of President Obama's health care law.

Bellar, a Republican candidate running for office in the state’s 18th district, gave the extended one-liner while warming up the crowd at a recent event for GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Someone captured it on video, and now the doctor's diagnosis of the Affordable Care Act is an Internet sensation with more than 2 million views.

“So, let me get this straight. This is a long sentence,” Bellar begins.

We are going to be gifted with a health care plan that we are forced to purchase, and fined if we don't, which reportedly covers 10 million more people without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman doesn't understand it, passed by Congress, that didn't read it, but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that is broke.

So what the blank could possibly go wrong?"


Bellar then launched into a longer speech, but the friendly crowd at the event dubbed "Women for Romney/Ryan," was already in the palm of her hand..

“I had no idea I was being videotaped,” Bellar told FoxNews.com. “I meant it as a light opener to a more serious issue. It did take on a life of its own."

But Bellar, who is running for office for the first time, has strong feelings about ObamaCare, which she considers an “erosion” of rights. She is seeking to succeed Edward Maloney, who is retiring from the district, which includes Chicago's 19th Ward, and has picked up the endorsement of the Chicago Tribune.

The title of senator would be just the latest entry on an interesting and lengthy resume. Bellar was a Benedictine nun for nearly five years, although she left before she completed her final vows. She is a major in the U.S. Army Reserves, runs a family medical practice, teaches part time at both Benedictine and DePaul universities and practices law.

“I’ve been fortunate," Bellar said. "I’m just a life-long learner and have always wanted to help serve others.”

Of the upcoming election, Bellar says that she plans to shake up the statehouse where President Obama got his start in politics.

“They will not know what hit them,” she said.

Wow, she has her work cut out for her getting elected to a seat against the Chicago Machine. I wish her luck, she's wonderful - articulate, brainy, great sense of humor.

Loved the video, Bon! Good find!

It sounds like a bad joke, unfortunately the people who conceived and installed Obamacare were voted into office. When history looks back upon the last 4 years, I wonder what conclusions they are going to draw about Americans?

She stole that from Donald Trump.

Donald Trump was recently in the news endorsing Mitt Romney for president. On this Super Bowl Sunday, perhaps his personal view of Obamacare will add to the national day of football and pageantry. Trump is always good for a quote and never short on his personal opinion.

Here's his take on Obamacare:

“Let me get this straight. We're going to be “gifted” with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don't, which purportedly covers at least 10 million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that didn't read it, but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a Dumbo president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, for which we'll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a Surgeon General who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke.

What the hell could possibly go wrong?”

It's just that bit of Dr. Bellar's speech caught on with the YouTube community and went viral. Her speech is important to all Christians and it is well worth listening to the entire thing.

As Snopes says, it's an anonymous bit of political humor, widely repeated. But it's a dang good one!!!

We don't have to wait for history do we? What are your conclusions? I want to compare them to mine, but I want you to say yours first!
