Here is a transcript of Dr. Bellar’s one sentence video [hilarious but so true]:

We’re going to be gifted with a healthcare plan we are forced to purchase, and fined if we don’t, which puportedly covers at least 10 million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a congress that didn’t read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a President who smokes, with funding (laughing & applause) same sentence – with funding administered by a Treasury Chief who didn’t pay his taxes, for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a Surgeon General who is obese and (laughing & applause) and financed by a country that’s broke. (laughing & applause)

So, what the blank (laughing & applause) could possibly go wrong?
