Video: The Obamacare Mess Explained in One Sentence

This puppy's going viral, so we might as well hop aboard the train and toot the horn a few times.  Here's medical doctor and Illinois State Senate candidate Barbara Bellar summarizing the president's unpopular healthcare law in a single, tortured sentence:

The transcript, via Ed Morrissey:
 

So, let me get this straight.  This is a long sentence.  We’re going to be gifted with a healthcare plan that we’re forced to purchase and fined if we don’t, which purportedly covers at least 10 million more people without adding a single doctor but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that didn’t read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a President who smokes — [laughter] — same sentence! — with funding administered by a Treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government that has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a Surgeon General who is obese — [laughter] — and finally, financed by a country that’s broke.


Fact Check: Seven thousand Pinocchios on fire!  Obama quit smoking.  In all seriousness, there are a few points Obamacare defenders will decry as misleading (the IRS may not need to hire 16,000 new agents to enforce the mandate tax) or irrelevant (who cares if the Surgeon General is overweight?), but Bellar's gallows humor is still pretty effective.  And she didn't even touch on Obamacare's increased premiums, stripped coverage, or middle class tax hikes.  I suppose there's only so much awful one can cram into a single run-on sentence.  One last shot to repeal this destructive, budget-busting, liberty-robbing beast in toto: 2013.
