Dr. David Gratzer has to beat up hookers to relax after a hard day of shilling for the health insurance industry.
William Burns
Fuck this Gratzer toadie.
Desidiosus
Are all health industry advocates that smarmy? They couldn't find one single person who doesn't want to make everyone else punch them in the face?
Old_Zircon
Nah, I would imagine a lot of them are smarmier.

"My position is respectable, and i dislike your comments, sir." What a twit.
jmags
Where I come from "respectable" and "for sale" are mutually exclusive, so I'd like to know what the fuck this guy thinks he's talking about.

what a smug douchebag

Kucinich: "Dr. David Gratzer, shut the fuck up! Gas face!"

Representative Kucinich.. would you like to see my mask?
dr_rock
For this

THA SUGAH RAIN
What was this some kind of fill in the blank quiz test where only Kucinich is allowed to know the answers. He wasn't actually asking questions he wanted answers to, he was just being a jerk.
Bort
Gratzer is complaining about the horrors of Canadian health care, and desperately trying to gloss over the fact that even imperfect health care is better than health care you cannot afford. That is a crucial point and there is no reason to let Gratzer off the hook by letting his BS statistics rule the day.

kingarthur
And I thoroughly enjoyed Kucinich doing a handstand on Gratzer's face hre.

THA SUGAH RAIN
Bort, literally right after this video cuts out, the doctor responds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXP7bRbuhHU
the conversation continues from here at the 3:00 mark.

Tuan Jim
The doctor tried to claim the wait time for an MRI in Canada was 6 months. The actual answer was THREE FUCKING WEEKS.

Fuck you.

phalsebob
I was in line for a CAT scan... I had one lined up two weeks after my appointment. I later dropped it because I felt the risk of the radiation outweighed the not very serious nature of my problem.

The only real problem with the Ontario health system is cramped emergency rooms and long ER waits... this problem is the legacy of Mike Harris. Harris was a conservative douchebag whose management philosophy was that if you want to fix a system, you need to tear it down first. He only got to the tearing it down part.

fatatty
I'm pretty sure every Emergency Room is horrible outside of the one on NBC. No...I guess they're all horrible.

svraz
I live in Ontario too. Phasebob is 100% correct.

Banal Intercourse
Replying to Tuan Jim here:

You can kind of barely make it out in the cross talk that what Gratzer was saying was that there is a six month wait time in Canada for cancer.

Here in America, we'll give you cancer for breakfast if you ask nicely.

Toenails
God damn he got to me. Somebody get this fucker a job trolling poeTV, cause Cena and Enjoy just don't do that for me anymore.

I'm glad Kuchnich handled it the way he did: Like an angry teacher going over every half-ass answer the kid put on his test.
Stopheles
"It depends on how you define medical bankruptcy" is the only 'answer' he offers.

THA SUGAH RAIN
because every 'question' was "What is the number I am looking at in this report you may or may not have seen and may or may not have memorized exactly as I am reading it right now"

dr_rock
Way to miss the point, THA. It is assumed that Smugsy over there presented a similar list of BS statistics regarding Canada and how life sucks there with nationalized medical insurance. Kucinich is merely calling the guy on his "expertise" of the Canadian healthcare system.

Toenails
@Stopheles

Actually, he does offer an answer to every one of them... expect the last.

Q1: Median wait time for elective surgery: "Why don't you inform us sir?"

Q2: Median wait time for diagnostic imaging: "I could tell you the interim government recently looked at that-" "It's three weeks" "It's six months" "It's three weeks."

Q3: How many uninsured are there in Canada: "Probably relatively very few."

Q4: How many medical bankruptcies are there in Canada: "Depends on how you define 'medical bankruptcy'."

Q5: How many insured Americans go without needed care due to the high cost of health care which is due to Health Insurance Companies: "OH ARE YOU GOING TO LET ME ANSWER FINALLY??? JESUS CHRIST WHAT A JERK!!!"

phalsebob
Sugah... the whole point of Dennis' attack is that McDouche has not seen the numbers because he hasn't done his homework, and therefore deserves to be humiliated by a short man.

THA SUGAH RAIN
Hasn't done his homework? Dr.Gratzer is an actual doctor who practices and lives in Canada. Rep. Kucinich was the mayor of cleveland and has a degree in communications.

Tuan Jim
Oh, Smugsley is an ACTUAL DOCTOR, wow. He has A DEGREE, that makes everything he says true! It automatically means he knows what he is talking about and isn't a fucking lickspittle for a corrupt insurance industry and wasn't trying to mislead Congress.

Fuck you.

phalsebob
Oh a real doctor from real Canada is he? Maybe he knows the numbers (or close enough to be relevant) but he's simply LYING. Why is it when I hear these assholes on American TV talking about how terrible my health care system is it never seems to affect me? Or am I just an extremely lucky Canadian?

theSnake
You know who else was a practicing Doctor? Dr. Doom, and I think we can all agree that he is a bad guy.

Syd Midnight
All Kucinich wanted was for the guy to give honest answers. Since the guy is being paid to lie, he can't. All of the guys statistics come with 2 pages of fine print because they're lies and distortions, because it's his job to lie to protect a few people's profits at the cost of 10s of millions of people's health and lives.

When you're paid to lie about something, and you get nailed with the truth, all you can do is sit there with a shit eating grin and think about sex or groceries or something until it stops.

KnowFuture
If one person had grilled Bush and/or Cheney like this over their 8-year tardfest...if one person had been persistent and said something like, "Mr. President, with all due respect, what you just said is NOT AN ANSWER TO MY QUESTION," what kind of world would we live in now?
Rodents of Unusual Size
Apparently you haven't heard of Kucinich before. Because he was that dude. No one sided with him, though, when he introduced articles of impeachment.

The man is my hero. FUCK YES. I've given him my hard earned dollars for his presidential campaign and I would do so again in a heartbeat. I voted for Obama, but I hoped beyond hope he would pick Kucinich as a running mate.

Rodents of Unusual Size
I hoped before he announced Biden, that is. And I'm still hoping that Biden will step down in 12' and that Obama will go with Kucinich, because I so very badly want him to be president some day.

phalsebob
Dennis is too short to be president. There have only been two presidents shorter than he, and that was in an age when the horseless carriage was regarded in much the same manner as we regard the starship Enterprise. This is not a good thing.

simon666
Kucinich is 5' 7", Truman was 5' 8". That's not a huge difference. Granted, Truman didn't run for President and really didn't want the job when he first got it...

Also, this rules, Kucinich rules, and this THA SUGAH RAIN is retarded.

Kucinich : The Awesomest Man Democrats Don't Give A Fuck About should have been on his yard sign.

And then Dr. David Gratzer goes to shut off the Ghost Containment Unit.
revdrew
Yes, it's true. This man has no dick.

Aoi
Lying is bad.

Kucinich is good.
svraz
Dear USA

Please keep Dr. David Gratzer. We don't want him back.
We are willing to trade.

Sincerely,
Canada
Pillager
I don't know...

How many cases of Moosehead are we to receive as annual tribute for keeping this douchenozzle?

joelkazoo
I wish I lived in his district so I could vote for him twice!

MAKE that insurance toady your BITCH, Denny!
joelkazoo
And the preview pic is worth a million stars of smugness.
