Is there anything Obama isn't an expert on?

Isn't it amazing that someone only trained as a lawyer knows so much about health care that he can criticize doctors for their choices of care, citing a ridiculous example?

Parents bring their sick child to their pediatrician or family practice for an exam or referral not a tonsillectomy! You see an Otolaryngologist (eye, nose and throat specialist) to have a tonsillectomy. There would be no profit motive for your pediatrician to push needless surgery.

Additionally, most insurance companies require 3-6 incidences of throat infection or months of trying antibiotics before they will authorize such a procedure.

Just a taste of what we will all be dealing with under Obama's plan when government bureaucrats, untrained in medicine, determine whether you get treatment or not.

  • Well I'm sorry but if my child is sick I'm going to take him to the Ped. and then I will go to whereever they send me next. I can't set up an appointment with a whatever specialist unless I have a referral from my doctor in order for my health insurance to pay for it.

    Obama thinks he knows it all when in reality he knows very little especially when it comes to running this country.

  • I agree with anon :34! Sadly, the only job he has right now seems to be the only thing he's not an "expert" at,and the entire country is suffering because of it,and the fact he is such an egomaniac, he refuses to admit to it,and let someone who DOES know what's going on step in,and try to salvage what's left!
