TULSA, Okla.– Republican Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma this weekend said he believed President Obama’s signature health care reform law would have killed him had he been in its clutches by forcing his doctor to give him AIDS. Speaking with WABC radio’s Aaron Klein, Inhofe explained how he went to see his doctor for a routine colonoscopy and discovered that his arteries were so blocked that he was “just about to die.”
“Because I’m a straight Republican male over a certain age, had I been an Obamacare patient, the Obama’s death panels would have deemed me unfit to live,“ said Inhofe. He went on to explain his belief that the health care reform law would have left him dead rather than allow him to undergo the emergency quadruple bypass heart surgery that saved his life, and in fact would have worked to hurry up the process instructing Inhofe’s doctor to give him AIDS.
“You know, a person can find out here in the United States that he has this emergency situation where he’s got to have immediate heart surgery, and if you’re in a country other than the United States — a lot of them — you can’t get it done,” Inhofe said. “In my case with my age, it would have been about a six-month wait. And during those six months, I would have wasted away into a dead gay man because Obamacare would have given me AIDS.”
U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, however, disagreed with Inhofe’s interpretation of the law. “Jim’s a decent guy and I hate to say bad things about a man who just had emergency quadruple bypass heart surgery, but he’s either dumber than a cow pie or lying through his teeth,” she said. “The Affordable Care Act does not force doctors or anyone else to inject American citizens with AIDS. That’s… Christ, are we really discussing this? That’s beyond crazy. It’s, like, Alex Jones crazy.”
Despite Sebelius’ rebuke, Inhofe remains steadfast in his belief that it was only the fact that he was wealthy enough to pay for the best medical care money could buy that he is not currently infected with AIDS. “And so, the message there is — and I say this to all of our American listeners — let’s hold on to what we’ve got here,” he said. “You’re talking to someone right now who probably wouldn’t be here if we had socialized medicine in America.”
imhof is beyond stupid but the oakies who elected him are the real worries
You can’t get AIDS from putting your foot in your own mouth or head up your own ass unless you are already infected with it.
Not every Oklahoman thinks like this.
He’s such an embarrassment. VOTE EM OUT
lol…funny. Whats scary is that fact he has a pilots license!
It’s called anal retentive Jim.
I loved Sebelius’s reply! The scary thing is that there are voters not only in his state, but others who totally believe him 100%.
I had to look to make sure this wasn’t the Onion!
These satire sites are starting to get me more often. I had to take time to read it, because most of the fringe right’s comments are so unbelievable that I wind up having to spend time researching them to try and prove that they ARE satire. I don’t want to immediately jump to the conclusion that they’re morons… so the satire becomes well-camouflaged.
Oh Im quite sure he does really believe that. I am embarrased he is from OK. You all cannot BELIEVE some of the things he has said! He could have his own book 369 of the DUMBEST things ever said!
His bypass surgery must have involved his brain.
Senator Inhofe is attempting to arouse emotional fear and spiritual insecurity in a shrinking mandate. President Obama could fix this threat within 15 minutes by staging a globally televised ‘weed out hate’ mega-event from the White House gardens, in which two billion children would be called upon to root out symbolic weeds of hatred with spiritual tear shed in the Creator’s direction. Just the kind of ‘eye to eye’ spiritual rain dance that could trigger trillions of tears back at citizens throughout the world. The spiritual deficit would be transformed into a surplus and the haters would converted into peace makers.
Sen Inhofe will not be incumbent on the next elections, I pray there are enough people fed up with his sellout policies that he is no longer a Senator. You cannot fix how limited this man is, only thing we can do is say goodbye !
It’s called anal retentive jim
says and oh, why weren’t we lucky enough for that to apply to Cheney. Just tell me, who at 71 years of age (under normal conditions) get a heart transplant. I guess the “normal condition” was lots of MONEY!
Being as this is satire, I will add to it, and say, too bad in his case it is not true. The country would be better off. That said, he is not really the problem, it is the idiots who would elect someone like him,.
Avid he will be reelected because Oklahomans can’t vote for another party no matter how ludicrous this idiot is.
He has always been a little nutty, but now I think he has completely gone off the deep end
and how do you know it is not true
He DOES still realize that he would STILL be able to buy any ADDITIONAL healthcare he may want on his own dime even AFTER the “Affordable Healthcare Act” goes into place, right? As to becoming gay? Well, that’s actually up to him but if he wants to be gay, I say GO FOR IT!!!
How ANYONE could EVER even consider re-electing an idiot like that is …well, insane!!!
Hard to believe people think like this especially people in office!! You would think they had a better education than that!!
says so as dumb as he is, maybe they should have let him die. Isn’t that in the ACA. What’s it called? The death panel, when one is too far gone at a certain age?
So Glad I Moved Out of Oklahoma!
We are being overrun by stupidity!
I wonder how many people read this and still don’t understand that it’s satire. that is how wack our political system has made everyone!
