Catch 'er if you can

Well, ahem, somebody could and did.

Watch the video. These people obviously ain't real smart (is it any wonder that they couldn't achieve the simple task of cobbling together a genuine-looking COLB for Hussein Obama?). At about 1:20 in the video Jackson-Lee addresses the 'we are a dying breed' remark of 'Dr.' Mayer, indicating that she (Jackson-Lee) is working on legislation which will increase the number of primary care physicians in America -- you know, that 'dying breed' that Mayer spoke of, as being one of; that breed that apparently can only be revitalized as part of the 'Obamacare' package. Not true at all! We just need more people like 'Dr.' Mayer to step up to the plate, and we'll have an abundance of primary care physicians in this country, on the government payroll.

Continuing her comments on the topic, Jackson-Lee speaks of the difficulty of getting young people (approx. 2:00 in the video, using her son as an example) to go to the doctor for preventative care. The obvious answer to that dilemma, though Jackson-Lee doesn't state it explicitly, is to force people to receive 'preventative' care. Well, that's actually not completely true. You can entice certain people to go to the doctor when they get the sniffles IF it is free to them. In those cases it isn't a matter of forcing them to do something they don't want to do, but of enticing them to do what they wouldn't do otherwise, that is if they had to pay for it out of their own pockets. But that doesn't take away from the fact that the government will most definitely try to force people to receive 'preventative' care and health assessments against their will. And all that that implies.
