Dr. Dave Janda on Obamacare, Stimulus, Rationing & the Solution

Sickening story and sadly true. We must repeal and defund Obamacare, and the bad parts of the stimulus plan. These guys got their hooks into us but good. :(

I tried this video on my liberal sister. She refused to watch it after the first minute or so.

Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil...they prefer their rose colored glasses.

While we know how very, very detrimental ObamaCare is to our quality of life, it is a completely other thing to listen to a doctor, sworn to "first do no harm," tell of his own experiences.

Everyone needs to view this video.

We have to pass the bill so we can all find out what's in it. This is scary stuff. The states need to stand up and just say no to it. It's time for the states to get back in the driving seat.

Yeah, Obama's gonna come to your hospital room and inject KCl into your IV. Don't sleep. Be afraid. I'm telling you this is all gonna happen.

From the comments:
Sickening story and sadly true... What's true? How do you know? What's the basis of your statement?

While we know how very, very detrimental ObamaCare is... We do? How?

The video is complete lunacy. This guy probably needs to stop practicing medicine anyway; his paranoia and drama are not conducive to providing good medical care.

There are so many satements that he makes that are inaccurate, but I'll point out one: He says that we will have 32 million MORE people in the "system" and the same number of doctors. This is untrue. When those 32 million currently get sick or have an accident, they go the the ER and get treated. They are already in the "system" because hospitals and doctors are mandated to treat them (unfunded mandate by EMTALA statutes); the only difference is that under Obamacare, everyone will have to pay something toward their insurance.

His ideas about rationing and refusal of care belie hysteria unwarranted by the facts. We already ration care, we just do it based on finances instead of medical necessity, and then spend inordinately on after-the-fact cures when prevention would have saved dollars.
