Delivered by Barbara Bellar, M.D. (more on her below), at a “Women For Romney” event in Chicago last August.
Please ignore the annoying caption in the video. Whoever transcribed Dr. Bellar’s words is either hard of hearing or an illiterate.

So who is Barbara Bellar? She’s running for a State senate seat in Illinois, from Chicago’s 19th Ward, a Democratic stronghold. From The Blaze:
Dr. Bellar is not your typical politician and certainly does not fit the mold of a “Chicago” politico. In fact, she’s:
- An ex-nun
- An Army Reserve vet
- A family practice physician (as she says, “from cradle to grave, from diapers to diapers, from womb to tomb”)
- A lawyer
- A motorcycle-riding, animal lover
As for the one very sentence that sums up Obamacare, Dr. Bellar didn’t write it. The sentence has been bouncing around the internet since March 18, 2010. Here it is!:
“So, let me get this straight (this is a long sentence), we’re going to be gifted with a healthcare plan we are forced to purchase, and fined if we don’t, which purportedly covers at least ten 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 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 financed by a country that’s broke. So what the blank could possibly go wrong?”
