Senator Tom Coburn knows all about cancer. Not only is he a physician but he is currently battling prostate cancer. So when he talks about Obamacare and cancer treatment Harry Reid should be smart enough to shut the heck up.
“Nineteen of the cancer centers in this country, only five are covered under Obamacare,” the Senator said, a fact he attributes to the measly payments that Obamacare pays the centers for delivering treatment.
Hmm. This isn’t going to plan. Obama ally, the American Cancer Society promised that Obamacare would give amazing coverage to everyone with cancer.
Dingy Harry responded to Coburn in his usual ostrich fashion by saying that the Senator was taking too narrow a view of the law. “Dr. Coburn is very good at getting into the weeds and trying to find something that he thinks makes sense, but I think we need to look at the overall context of this bill,” he said when asked about Coburn’s comments during a Senate press briefing.
The weeds! Harry your head’s in the clouds.
