"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.'"
Read the full transcript of the press conference here.
Obama makes an outrageous argument and is intellectually dishonest. He makes up an imaginary "straw man" that doesn't exist and can't defend himself. Obama would get an automatic "F" on a 7th grade paper for providing no evidence for his argument. That being said, who would you rather make a decision about taking out tonsils: a computer programmed by a government bureaucrat in Washington or your doctor looking at your throat?
The bottom line is that Obama and other ultra-liberals have trust issues. They do not trust "the rich", pharmaceutical companies, energy companies, insurance companies, car companies, bankers, the American people, Christians or Walmart - and the list goes on. They assume that only "government" can make wise decisions.
If you want Obama "on your shoulder", you deserve the so called "medical care" you will get.
