And YES, he really said that.

Conservative TV preacher Pat Robertson said this week that Americans needed to stage a “revolution” against President Barack Obama after a trip to the doctor that took too long because his nurse had to use a computer.
“Obamacare has been a massive disaster!” Robertson opined on the Wednesday edition of The 700 Club. “Now doctors have another problem coming down from big government!”
According to a doctor that CBN spoke to in Farmville, Virginia, a government push for standardizing electronic medical records could put his practice out of business.
“We need a revolution in this country to change this stuff,” Robertson lamented. “You know, I had a little procedure or something done. And I’m sitting there, and this nurse is saying, ‘Well, tell us about this.’ And she’s accessing in her computer, ‘Well, how many vitamins do you take? How about something else? When did you have…?’ She spent forever and forever logging stuff into the computer because that’s what they want to do!”
“Well how about me? I’m sick! Help me! Well, that’s too bad. We’ve got to get the records fixed.”
The CBN co-host argued that it was an example “SOCIALISM.”
I don’t care how many MINUTES it might take, I want the doctor to have the most pertinent data at hand. PERIOD!

Overall, 73 percent of people who bought health plans and 87 percent of those who signed up for Medicaid said they were somewhat or very satisfied with their new health insurance.
Seventy-four percent of newly insured Republicans liked their plans. Even 77 percent of people who had insurance before — including members of the much-publicized group whose plans got canceled last year — were happy with their new coverage.
The study also found that the percentage of uninsured has dropped, from 20 percent to 15 percent, after the first open enrollment period, with 9.5 million fewer people now uninsured. Latinos, the most likely of any racial group to lack health insurance, are seeing the biggest gains in coverage. “The percent uninsured fell from 36 percent in July–September 2013 to 23 percent in April–June 2014,” Commonwealth reports.
If you don’t want to say it, I understand, so I’ll go ahead and say it for you:
Thank You, MR. PRESIDENT!
In a recent interview with Katie Couric, Bryan Cranston, the star of AMC’s critically-acclaimed show Breaking Bad, expressed his support of Obamacare, calling it “fantastic.” In response, Fox News criticized his comments because, well, do you really need a reason?
Breaking Bad, as most people know, revolves around the exploits of Walter White, played by Cranston, a once-humble high school chemistry teacher who is compelled to start cooking meth to cover the costs of his lung cancer treatment.
In the interview, Cranston acknowledged that, despite problems, the Affordable Care Act, known popularly as Obamacare, is a step in the right direction.
“Anything worthwhile is going to go through growing pains, period. But this is [President Obama’s] legacy, and I think it’s a great one. Because I don’t think that basic health care should be a privilege of the rich. It should be a right to all.”
Cue the ire of the Fox News talking heads, who lambasted Cranston for being both hypocritical and a SHRILL for the Obama Administration.
The Five’s Eric Bolling sarcastically remarked that he loved it “when the rich guys say, ‘Basic health care shouldn’t be a privilege.’”
Greg Gutfeld followed this by questioning: “How weird is it that a guy who plays a dark, brooding anti-hero is really a puppet to The Man? I mean, he just propagandized for President Obama.”
We WON, You LOST, so STFU!

A riveting scene unfolded in Congress today as a tearful Speaker John Boehner took to the floor of the House to tell his colleagues,
“I don’t want to live in a world where seven million people get affordable health care.”
Tears streaming down his cheeks, Rep. Boehner appeared unable to maintain his composure as he delivered a speech interrupted by blubbering and sharp intakes of breath.
“What kind of a world is it where anyone can go on the Internet and get health care they can afford?” he said. “Not a world I’d care to live in, or leave to my children.”
“It’s not right… and it’s not America,” he said, breaking down.
Later, dabbing his eyes, a still-sobbing Boehner apologized to reporters for “losing it up there.”
“I don’t like to get so emotional,” he said. “But when seven million people signed up for Obamacare, a part of me died.”
By the way, thank you Mr. President.
