    Meet Your New Physician, Dr. Rube Goldberg

    Meet Your New Physician, Dr. Rube Goldberg

    (Originally posted 5/12/11, but lost in the Big Blogger Blackout of 2011, brought back to life courtesy of the Restore Honor and Sanity (and missing Legal Insurrection posts) Project)

    Gravitas, what we need is Gravitas. A mind so large it can create a unified theory of everything, and pass it as a regulation.

    What possibly could go wrong? (emphasis mine)

    President Barack Obama’s main idea for getting quality health care at less cost was in jeopardy Wednesday after key medical providers called his administration’s initial blueprint so complex it’s unworkable.

    Just over a month ago, the administration released long-awaited draft regulations for “accountable care organizations,” networks of doctors and hospitals that would collaborate to keep Medicare patients healthier and share in the savings with taxpayers. Obama’s health care overhaul law envisioned quickly setting up hundreds of such networks around the county to lead a bottom-up reform of America’s bloated health care system.

    But in an unusual rebuke, an umbrella group representing premier organizations such as the Mayo Clinic wrote the administration Wednesday saying that more than 90 percent of its members would not participate, because the rules as written are so onerous it would be nearly impossible for them to succeed.

    He. Doesn’t. Know. What. He. Is. Doing.

    Further, if ACOs are not successful, we are concerned that the only alternative to future delivery system “reform” will be draconian cuts across the provider spectrum.

    [And now I anxiously await the “oh yes he does” comments.]

    Update [part of original post]: SoccerDad reminds me that there is a chart which makes it all clear:

    That chart illustration is actually a magnification of the Sebelius XX-400 Microchip that forms the CPU of the Obamacare Death Panel's chairman, Dr. No.

    Today I will eat healthy food, and not too much of it, lift weights, take a walk, work, but not too much, love, and be loved, and get a good nights sleep. Since I can not count the the "health care" system to take care of me, I must do as much of that for myself as I can.

    Dr. Rube Goldberg is my Primary Care Physician, here in MA under RomneyCare.

    I have to say that I so appreciate the 'video of the day'. I absolutely loved it, what memories I have, I saw that show as a child. My parents would watch The Porter Wagoner Show and Dolly Parton was my first recording artist crush for years from 5 to 10 yrs. old. WOW! It was nice to think of my parents back when we were all here and happy. Thanks.

    oh boy

    do I agree with this conclusion of yours!


    Btw Professor, I left a Q in the comments section of your Huckabee blog post. If you have the time to respond with your professional opinion, I would be grateful.

    Hey, I didn't know the Mayo Clinic was full of RAAAAACISTS!
