Obama makes doctors and police the bad guys

My jaw literally dropped when I read this (emphasis mine; yes, it’s belated by a day; transcipt here):

Right now, doctors a lot of times are forced to make decisions based on the fee payment schedule that’s out there. So if they’re looking and you come in and you’ve got a bad sore throat or your child has a bad sore throat or has repeated sore throats, the doctor may look at the reimbursement system and say to himself, “You know what? I make a lot more money if I take this kid’s tonsils out.”

Now, that may be the right thing to do, but I’d rather have that doctor making those decisions just based on whether you really need your kid’s tonsils out …    part of what we want do is to free doctors, patients, hospitals to make decisions based on what’s best for patient care.

Saying that doctors make treatment decisions based on greed – the doctor saying “I could make more money” – and Obama saying that doctors are not “making those decisions just based on whether you really need” – saying that is un-informed, clueless, downright insulting, clueless , contradicting himself, clueless – oh wait, it does fit the strategy of saying whatever to ram an agenda through.

Add that to Obama’s un-informed comment followed by insult to all police.

This country needs a lot of prayer.
