Paul Ryan and Ann Coulter make the case against Obamacare

Wow, if you guys liked the Marco Rubio interview, you’re going to love this video! (H/T Hot Air)

Republican health care policy expert Paul Ryan in top form.

It’s so funny seeing the two radical left-wing Democrat-shills on MSNBC being schooled by a policy expert. They constantly interrupt him to spout Democrat talking points, and he has to calmly take them down with facts. And then while he’s doing that, they try to shout him down! Here you may see the inherent fascism of the left on full display – from ad hominem to ad baculum in one smooth motion.

Meanwhile, Ann Coulter explains the main reason I oppose health care.


The government also “helped” us by mandating that insurance companies cover all sorts of medical services, both ordinary — which you ought to pay for yourself — and exotic, such as shrinks, in vitro fertilization and child-development assessments — which no normal person would voluntarily pay to insure against.

This would be like requiring all car insurance to cover the cost of gasoline, oil and tire changes — as well as professional car detailing, iPod docks, leather seats and those neon chaser lights I have all along the underbody of my chopped, lowrider ’57 Chevy.

But politicians are more interested in pleasing lobbyists for acupuncturists, midwives and marriage counselors than they are in pleasing recent college graduates who only want to insure against the possibility that they’ll be hit by a truck. So politicians at both the state and federal level keep passing boatloads of insurance mandates requiring that all insurance plans cover a raft of non-emergency conditions that are expensive to treat — but whose practitioners have high-priced lobbyists.

As a result, a young, healthy person has a choice of buying artificially expensive health insurance that, by law, covers a smorgasbord of medical services of no interest to him … or going uninsured. People who aren’t planning on giving birth to a slew of children with restless leg syndrome in the near future forgo insurance — and then politicians tell us we have a national emergency because some people don’t have health insurance.

This is why I’m in love with Ann Coulter: she speaks about my concerns. Single-payer health care is about the most productive citizens paying for the medical care of their neighbors. Democrats are really just trying to get control of health care so that they can deny care to groups they don’t like, while paying for services who people they do like. For example, taking money from working Christian families to pay Planned Parenthood to perform abortions.

  1. Of all people to use, Ann Coulter? She is to the right what Michael Moore is to the left. There are so many people that are more intelligent and eloquent than she, and Obama’s proposed health care is such an obamanation (<- I think I'm copy righting that one wintery), you don't need not very bright people like Coulter.

    There are so many reasons to oppose the health care legislation, I would be shocked if it passes. Last I had read, even a bunch of the dems don't want to support it.


    1. Ann Coulter is the author of seven New York Times bestsellers —Guilty: Liberal Victims and Their Assault on America (January 2009);If Democrats Had Any Brains, They’d Be Republicans (October, 2007); Godless: The Church of Liberalism (June 2006); How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must)(October, 2004); Treason: Liberal Treachery From the Cold War to the War on Terrorism (June 2003); Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right (June 2002); and High Crimes and Misdemeanors:The Case Against Bill Clinton (August 1998).

      Coulter is the legal correspondent for Human Events and writes a popular syndicated column for Universal Press Syndicate.

      She is a frequent guest on many TV shows, including The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Early Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Hannity, The O’Reilly Factor, The Glen Beck Show, HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, and has been profiled in numerous publications, including TV Guide, the Guardian (UK), the New York Observer, National Journal, Harper’s Bazaar, and Elle magazine. She was the April 25, 2005 cover story of Time magazine.

      In 2001, Coulter was named one of the top 100 Public Intellectuals by federal judge Richard Posner in 2001.

      A Connecticut native, Coulter graduated with honors from Cornell University School of Arts & Sciences, and received her J.D. from University of Michigan Law School, where she was an editor of The Michigan Law Review.

      Coulter clerked for the Honorable Pasco Bowman II of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and was an attorney in the Department of Justice Honors Program for outstanding law school graduates.

      After practicing law in private practice in New York City, Coulter worked for the Senate Judiciary Committee, where she handled crime and immigration issues for Senator Spencer Abraham of Michigan. From there, she became a litigator with the Center For Individual Rights in Washington, DC, a public interest law firm dedicated to the defense of individual rights with particular emphasis on freedom of speech, civil rights, and the free exercise of religion.


  2. Thanks wintery, for listing Anne Coulter’s distinguished accomplishments. Jerry: Need anything more be said on the “not very bright people” accusation? I think not.
