Talk About Missing the Point by 10 Miles

Yesterday, Michelle Obama talked to a group of activists for women’s issues about the disproportional effect that lack of health insurance and substandard health care have on women:

Michelle Obama said women are being “crushed by the current structure of our health care” because they often are responsible for taking care of family illnesses, arranging checkups and monitoring follow-up care.

“Women are the ones to do it,” she said to an audience of 140 people, including representatives from groups such as the Women’s Chamber of Commerce and the National Council of Negro Women. “Mothers are the ones that do it. And many women find themselves doing the same thing for their spouses.”

Women also are more disproportionately affected by the lack of insurance options because they are more likely to work part-time or at small businesses that don’t provide coverage.

“It’s not surprising that so many millions of women are simply going without insurance at all,” Obama said.

John Hinderaker apparently is not operating on the power line:

I really don’t understand this. Under Obamacare, will someone other than mothers (or fathers) arrange checkups for their kids? Take care of family illnesses? Make sure the kids are taking their medicine and get follow-up care if they need it? Is there really anything like this in any of the Democrats’ proposals? If mothers (and fathers) don’t arrange their kids’ checkups, who will? Someone else’s mother or father, apparently. No doubt they’ll care more and do a better job.

The Obama administration seems to be bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase “nanny state.”

No, no, no, John. It’s not about who takes the kids to the doctor. It’s about how you pay the doctor. You know, John… like, when you don’t have that thing, that waddayacallit, thing — you know, the thing that this entire health care reform debate is about? HEALTH INSURANCE! Duhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

I mean, how can anyone be that dense? Either he really is dumber than a box of rocks, or he’s pretending to be for what reason I can’t imagine — but this is the kind of thing that just robs me of speech.

    Michelle O’ said when she took her daughter to the doctor, and the Dr. said she may have memingitis the first thing Michelle O’ claimed to think was “Oh, I’m so glad we have health insurance” … not … “oh my god, we’d better get to the ER right away this is serious” …

    Clearly Michelle O (MO) lied, fabridcated this story. No woman thinks about Health Insurance like that when a kid’s just been diagnosed. How sad, she took a page from the Clinton’s (story fabrication). Besides, women receive MORE health care than man, so what’s up here? No ER would turn away a kid with meningitis for Chrissake!!

    Everybody who goes to the ER gets treated. I don’t see why this Health Care debate is such a pressing issue. How does Health Care tie into the Deficit, what about Jobs?? Seems the Media has forgotten about JOBS … more important than Obamacare right now. Obamba barely talks about jobs. Our Health Care system is the most expensive, but it is also the best. Why must Obama and Progressives deride the fine people who make our medicines and treat our illnesses ?? Shameful.
