What do you call health “care” involving Michelle (finally proud of her country) Soetoro, David (astroturfer) Axelrod, Valerie (slumlord) Jarrett, Dr. Eric (Rezko kickbacks) Whitaker, Tony (convicted felon slumlord) Rezko and Rod (impeached governor) Blagojevich?
The president of the American College of Emergency Physicians, Dr. Nick Jouriles, calls it “dangerously close to ‘patient dumping,’ a practice made illegal by the Emergency Medical Labor and Treatment Act, and reflected an effort to ‘cherry pick’ wealthy patients over poor.”
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), said its an effort to “cut coverage for the poor.”
I think most clear-thinking individuals would call it PATIENT DUMPING.
But what is the Soetoro/Axelrod/Jarrett/Whittaker/Rezko/Blagojevich “health care” plan called?
THE URBAN HEALTH INITIATIVE
Here’s how it works:
Suppose you’re a poor Southside Chicago resident that used to live in a government-subsidized housing unit owned by Valerie Jarrett or Tony Rezko, before the building was condemned, closed and demolished. Your 2-yr-old has eaten some lead-based paint chips that have fallen off the wall and into his crib. He is crying from stomach pains. You’re horrified. You scoop him up, run to a bus stop and get him to the Emergency Room at the University of Chicago. You try as best you can to comfort your child while checking in at the reception desk. “No, I don’t have insurance”, you tell the receptionist, as you fumble for a tissue to wipe up some of the vomit your son has just regurgitated on the floor.
You take your crying child to the waiting room to anxiously await his treatment. After an hour, you notice that several well-dressed individuals have been called back, even though they arrived after you and your son. After 3 hours, you keep putting your face close to your child’s mouth and nose because he has fallen into a deep sleep and you’re afraid he may die in your arms. After 4 hours, a shuttle bus arrives to take you and your son (free of charge) to a “less expensive” clinic….
How is the Chicago Urban Health Initiative relevant to most Americans?
Suppose you’ve signed up for SoetoroCare, outlined in the “stimulus bill”. Your child is very sick…..
