Obama invokes God … woman faints

I’m not surprised. Even the NY Times thinks he’s like … ummm Jesus? Obama speaking in Ohio at what we are told was his “last” speech on health care, Obama warned Americans they are just one disease, one layoff, one precondition away from Armageddon. It was all one woman needed to hear. And its not like this hasn’t happened before.


It’s true that a layoff or any loss of job can be a health insurance nightmare, but the same can be said of Obamacare. Remember, any change in your policy status, either the employer or you dropping or changing coverage, will automatically put you in the government pool which means, if you like your insurance, you can’t keep it and likely your Doctor too.

Point two: If you have a pre-existing condition, you may or may not be covered, so Ohio resident Natoma Canfield might be covered … but maybe not, under Obamacare, since as the SOS pointed out last year, the pool has limited funding and some with pre-existing conditions may not get in.

And as Jim Hoft points out the great irony here is that Natoma is getting hospital care without insurance. Under Obamacare, would there be a waiting list?

So, as someone with a pre-exisiting condition, I can understand why this woman may have fainted. Fear not, he is risen.

    I hope this fainting faithfull person had health insurance… I also hope they get that letter from their insurer asking them if perhaps someone else might be responsible for their medical care that day. You know the letter you get when they try to push their paying off on some other party;  i.e. were your injuries caused by someones negligence, or a fight, or a vehicle accident deemed not your fault.  I'm not dissing the insurance carriers, I'm just throwing out another reason not to involve the government in this. Could you imagine if the gov't was involved in this???

    I am too Jim. I have a prayer for  you  straight from the magic brick found in the west wall of King Tut's toomb. The demi God Serket, protector of the immortal pharoah,  says to the intruder who dares plunder his tomb….." O one who comes in search for the approach to reverse the concealed living One…I am the one who stands behind the Djed Pillar on the day of repelling slaughter"  In many ways the spring raising of the Djed Pillar ceremonies of Egypt forshadowed the  establishment of Easter.

    Does the person who just fainted, now have a PreExisting condition?
