Democrats Attack Female Doctor for Daring to Question ObamaCare

Posted by on Dec 13, 2013 at 8:21 am

We’re rapidly approaching the point where even questioning Obama will be deemed a criminal act.

A feisty Upper East Side ophthalmologist didn’t take any guff from lawmakers Thursday when she gave congressional testimony about the ill effects of ObamaCare.

Dr. Patricia McLaughlin, whose ObamaCare woes were first highlighted in The Post, gave a House committee a simple prescription for the defective health care law: “Fix it!”

But Democratic lawmakers pounced on her for relating how she got hit with an ObamaCare “double whammy.”

McLaughlin told the House Oversight Committee, which invited her to testify after reading The Post article, how she had lost the group health plan for her four-person office.

Then, Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield dropped her from its provider network, forcing her patients using that insurance to go elsewhere or pay out of pocket, she said.

Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-Pa.) questioned whether McLaughlin was dumped from the network because her “credentials” weren’t as good as other doctors’.

Can you imagine the caterwauling from the left if a Republicans even hinted that a woman wasn’t as competent a physician as men? Jesus, we’d never hear the end of it.

After the hearing, she said the Democrats were “a little harder on me than the others [testifying].”

She balked at Rep. John Tierney (D-Mass.) calling the hearing a “pony show.”

“That really hurt me to the core,” she said. “Because I certainly was not here to put on any show . . . This was a nonpartisan participation on my part.”

There’s no longer any sense of decency and honor with Democrats. It’s all about serving their master in the White House. By the way, McLaughlin’s patients apparently don’t question her abilities.

Here’s some video, via the Free Beacon:

How long until the inevitable IRS audit?

    She was just being honest! The Dems want a subject changer from LIE OF THE YEAR AWARED TO Brother Barry.
    The #2 lie that it beat out was one told to the milenials in order to get them to sign up for OB☭M☭C☭RE ● insurance they don’t need. This lie was, “Let me stick it in just a little bit, and if you don’t like it, I’ll take it out.”
    Now we can focus on the REAL PROBLEM! OB☭M☭C☭RE ● to Hill☭ryC☭re conversion. Hillary is certainly hoping for more relief, understanding, & sign ups. Perhaps if Barry can just give another shuck & jive speech & we would finally understand and feel better about the problems? Maybe the PR Campaign Zeke Emanuel (who actually interviewed on TV without his top teeth) was chatting up on Chris Wallace’s Sunday show will convince the soft headed b*stards that voted for Barry & Company again, to now open up their wallets and buy something they don’t need for a higher price than they could get before, just so Brother Barry’s legacy doesn’t look bad. Remember Democrats you own OB☭M☭C☭RE ● (enjoy)
    Hillary has also been quoted as saying,”You had better get this sh!t fixed before I have to run in 2016!”

    The good news is…the ACA will be in full failure mode by summer. When millions of employer based policies are cancelled…even the most Obama-loyal members of the House will abandon ship.

    They may love Barry…but they’re not going to lose their seat for him.

    This puppy is crashing. It’s gonna make the Hindenburg crash look like small potatoes.

    Somebody pass the popcorn.
