Matlock Blows It

Looks like ObamaCare© is about to zing you again:

What, you really think that ol' Andy is talking about this because he believes it? Please. First, as a senior citizen, he's about to see his own Medicare benefits - including choice of doctors - severely curtailed (or maybe not: I'm sure the SAG has its own little game going on). Second, none of what he says is true:

"This year, like always, we'll have our guaranteed benefits"

Except, of course, we won't: between employers dumping their group plans and uninsured folks who have to wait 6 months - and have major health issues - to even buy insurance, that "guarantee" is deader'n Aunt Bee.

"[M]ore good things are coming. Free checkups, lower prescription costs..."

Objection, your honor!

Checkups aren't "free:" either the insured or the taxpayer is paying for the insurance, or the doc has been enslaved. "Lower prescription costs?" Hardly: we're about to see increased taxes on any number of medical devices, as well as increased taxes on the R&D folks.

The best part? You and I paid almost three quarters of a million dollars for this parody of itself.
