Dr. No and His Health Care Survey


Rep. Phil "Dr. No" Roe has set up a little survey on his website. He has sent this out to his email list (apparently I am not on it) requesting a vote. Let's vote shall we? Of course, he has stacked the deck with his loaded scare phrase "government-run" so you have to read that first line as:

"Yes, I support a health care system that is not run by greedy, corporate fat cats who profit on the illness of others and have purchased the support of politicians like me, Dr. Roe."




Do know this. Dr. Roe does
not care what you think. His Town Hall carnivals demonstrated that.



He is
nestled comfortably in the pocket of the health insurance industry.

He just wants to "knock you out."

This charade of a vote will be used by him to "prove" that his constituents agree with him. To play the game on his website, you don't even need to live in his district. All you need is an email address. Get the word out to your friends. Go here, check yes, and send it around!

  2. Do doctors and nurses also profit off the illness of people?

    Do chefs and waitpeople profit off the hunger of others?

    Do you profit off the emotional/spiritual needs of others?

    For instance the Alabama Blue Cross and Blue Shield company has disputed President Obama's statements here:

  3. Don't be absurd, Adel. Churches are non-profit, remember? Making a living and making a profit are considered two different things by pretty much everyone.

    Nice work, though, finding one chapter of BCBS that holds up your ideology for you. That must have taken a while.

  4. If Adel does not know the difference between an insurance company and a doctor, boy is he in trouble!

  5. BTW, Snad's right, you do not need a valid email, and it looks like you can vote as many times as you want.

    People who put such poorly designed "polls" on websites that can so easily be gamed need to get spanked by gaming the poorly designed polls.

    (Of course, the fact that the poll doesn't not provide immediate results means that he can make them say whatever he wants, regardless of the "real" results.)

  6. I see the JC Press just gave Dr. No another 1/4 page free platform to "editorialize" his boiler-plate BS. Why do they do that?
