Replacing Obamacare March 25, 2017

Posted by nrhatch in Health & Wellness, Humor, Joke.

The American Medical Association has weighed in on Trump’s proposed health care package to replace Obamacare:

The allergists were in favor of scratching it, but the dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.

The gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, and the neurologists thought the administration has a lot of nerve.

Meanwhile, obstetricians felt certain everyone was laboring under a misconception, while the ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.

Pathologists yelled, “Over my dead body!” while the pediatricians said, “Oh, grow up!”

The psychiatrists thought the idea was madness, while the radiologists could see right through it.

Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing, and the internists claimed it would indeed be a bitter pill to swallow.

The plastic surgeons opined that Trump’s proposal would “put a whole new face on the matter.”

The podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.

Anesthesiologists thought a new plan would be a gas, and those lofty cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no.

In the end, the proctologists pointed out that, for now, the entire decision is in the hands of those assholes in Washington.

Aah . . . that’s better!

This is so good. Even better now that it’s the day after.

Well put, Maggie!

Hope your Facebook friends enjoy it as much as I did, Rainee.

Joe sends some very clever e-mails. I wish I’d written this!

4. L. Marie - March 25, 2017

X-cellent, said the X-ray technicians.

nrhatch - March 25, 2017

X-actly right, L!

President Obama said “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.” Are there any in this article, who anyone would like to keep?

nrhatch - March 25, 2017

Sure! Some of them seem to have common sense . . . unlike those in office.

Glad you enjoyed the word play, Jill. Whoever wrote this has a way with words!

So clever, Nancy. Thanks for the laughs. 😘

Glad you enjoyed!

Very clever indeed.
When it comes to medical care, Trump is opposed to nursing it because he couldn’t care less?

nrhatch - March 25, 2017

Probably so. From my perspective, he’s more concerned with building walls and “managing terrorists” than with the health and wellness of the general populace.

colonialist - March 25, 2017

It would be nice if the terrorists manage to push some of his wall over on him …

nrhatch - March 25, 2017

Or maybe Congress could just tell him, “YOU’RE FIRED!”

9. Val Boyko - March 25, 2017

So good Nancy! Thank you for sharing the chuckle. xo

nrhatch - March 25, 2017

Glad you enjoyed! Happy weekend, Val.

I was going to say, “Oh, how funny!” Then I realized it isn’t humor, but a serious commentary on the state of the late lamented healthcare bill. Late lamented is in quotation marks. I expect something more lamentable to be introduced for a vote as soon as the Congressional OB/GYNs have time to regroup and consult the panel of Storks they keep on retainer.

nrhatch - March 25, 2017

I don’t think we’ll see a new healthcare bill introduced until after Trump has a “win” or two under his belt. Maybe he’ll go tinker with his Tinker Toys and Lego Blocks. 😀

11. Ally Bean - March 25, 2017

Oh dear, you’ve made such a serious subject funny. Would that more people would follow your lead…

nrhatch - March 25, 2017

Life is better with laughter . . . especially with Trump in office!

12. diannegray - March 26, 2017

Haaaaaa! Awesome! I was waiting for the proctologists to join in 😀

nrhatch - March 26, 2017

Yes . . . the proctologists get to the bottom line!

diannegray - March 27, 2017

Haaaa! I love your sense of humour, Nancy 😀

nrhatch - March 27, 2017

Ditto! I hope now that the RUC has passed inspection that you’ll be sharing your wit and wisdom with us more regular like!

13. javsimson - March 26, 2017

One of your best! This gets a twitter!

nrhatch - March 26, 2017

Great! Glad you enjoyed.

14. Tiny - March 26, 2017

And the Podiatrists threatened to walk away…This is a riot 😀

nrhatch - March 26, 2017

A very clever commentary!

15. Debra - March 26, 2017

I think you’ve summed it up quite accurately! Now I understand! Whew!

nrhatch - March 27, 2017

Doctors are so specialized, their specialties have specialties!

16. beeblu - April 2, 2017

Haha. You’ve got to laugh; the alternative is to run from the planet, screaming.

nrhatch - April 2, 2017

Exactly! ~> “STOP THE WORLD . . . I WANT TO GET OFF!”
