29. He can keep Senator Barrasshole company.
Just what is it with physicians turned politicians? They seem a singularly heartless bunch. One can only hope that it's a natural way of weeding out the misanthropes from the menschen.

Anyway, here's the quote from Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) at the White House summit on health care. And bear in mind that Barrasshole is a doctor.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/20...

And, Mr. President, when you say, with catastrophic plans, they don't go for care until later, I say sometimes the people with catastrophic plans are the people that are best consumers of health care, in using -- the way they use their health care dollars.

Because a lot of people come in and say, you know, my knee hurts; maybe I should get an MRI. They say -- and then they say, "Will my insurance cover it?" That's the first question.

And if I say yes, then they say, "OK, let's do it." If I say no, then they say, "Well, what is it going to cost?"

And "What's it cost?" ought to be the first question.
:grr:


Oh, yeah, Doc, we'd all just love to take a wait-and-see approach a child shows symptoms of meningitis, or maybe shop around for a sweet deal on a cardiologist when the old ticker acts up. :sarcasm:

He and Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK, another physician!) are a pair. I mean that literally; they teamed up to attack so-called Obamacare. :eyes: Pair of Hippocratic oafs.
