Kentucky, what the F were you thinking when you elected this guy? Here’s what the junior Senator said about health care in Congress yesterday.
PAUL: With regard to the idea of whether you have a right to health care, you have realize what that implies. It’s not an abstraction. I’m a physician. That means you have a right to come to my house and conscript me. It means you believe in slavery. It means that you’re going to enslave not only me, but the janitor at my hospital, the person who cleans my office, the assistants who work in my office, the nurses.
Basically, once you imply a belief in a right to someone’s services — do you have a right to plumbing? Do you have a right to water? Do you have right to food? — you’re basically saying you believe in slavery.
I’m a physician in your community and you say you have a right to health care. You have a right to beat down my door with the police, escort me away and force me to take care of you? That’s ultimately what the right to free health care would be.
Major logic fail.
So, in Paul’s fevered brain, is he playing a scenario like this?
Patient: Dr. Paul, I’ve had some problem seeing well lately. Can I schedule an appointment?
Paul: What do you mean, schedule an appointment? Do you think I have nothing better to do than look at somebody’s eyeballs? You can’t force me to look at anyone’s eyes!
Patient: I was only asking for an appointment. Not demanding one.
Paul: No, you’re one of those Obamacarenazis who expects socialized health care. Well, you can’t force me to wait on you, no sir! Even if you bring in your jackbooted Obamenforcers to point their guns at me.
Patient: Well, then, I was thinking maybe I could find another doctor. Free market, and all, you know.
Paul: Don’t try to confuse me by claiming you’re a libertarian like me! Get out! And let me go back to reading Atlas Shrugged.
I hope plumbers don’t get wind of this, or you’re all in for a world of trouble.
