Obamacare, Cuban-Style

According to one ardent Barack Obama supporter in the House of Representives, Rep. Diane Watson (D-Calif.), if you oppose President Obama and Obamacare it is very likely because you are a racist.  Her ideal of a great government leader, moreover, is Cuba’s ruthless former dictator Fidel Castro, who has returned the compliment by praising Obama.

Here are two brief excerpts from a video of Watson’s disgraceful remarks shown on Hannity’s America this week:

WATSON: So, remember, they are spreading fear and they are trying to see that the first president who looks like me fails. And I want you to know, people look at the United States as a country that has changed its ways and has elected someone from Kenya and Kansas. I’ll put it like that.

WATSON: You can think whatever you want to about Fidel Castro. But he was one of the brightest leaders I have ever met.

It is plain to see that we have, in Watson, a race-obsessed Castro groupie in the United States Congress who is lecturing us on the parameters of how we may, and may not, speak about our President. Nor is she alone, of course. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, for instance, has disparaged the many thousands of ordinary Americans who have attended town hall meetings in opposition to Obamacare, characterizing such people as inauthentic “AstroTurf” (as opposed to genuine “grassroots”) organizers who carry “swastikas and symbols like that” to the events.

Congresswoman Watson loves the Cuban health care system, or at least that tiny sliver of it which she and fellow Cuban healthcare fan Michael Moore have been allowed to observe — the state-of-the art facilities reserved for top government officials, visiting dignitaries, and foreigners with the hard currency to pay for the services.  Average Cuban patients, by contrast, are subjected to unsanitary conditions, long waits for vital surgeries (even Castro had to have his surgeon flown in from Spain), malnutrition, and shortages of basic drugs, to name but a few problems.

Yet this is the model that some Obamacare supporters point to as the example to follow.

Check out this photo of a Cuban hospital emergency room.  A picture is worth a thousand words.
