Spinning, spinning, and more spinning…

Spin doctor

I love the way the Liberal leaning talking heads are trying to spin the Obamacare rollout fiasco.  “This is all part of introducing a new program, glitches occur.”  Laughable, since this legislation has been in place for over four long years.  Admittedly there have been delays of certain portions of the law to allow certain parties to catch up, however this enrollment date has always been firm, VERY firm, and Obama was sure to drive home that point during the recent budget/debt ceiling debacle.

Now the Liberals are saying that it is ironic Republicans are holding hearings on the abominable rollout, saying that it is odd that now the Republicans want to be so involved in the process as to hold hearings on the website issues, while just weeks ago wanted to kill Obamacare altogether.  Really???  If you were stranded on a desert island with little hope of immediate rescue, and it starts pouring for days, do you lament being wet, or do you collect fresh water to drink?

It only makes sense that if the Republicans cannot get rid of this nasty hugely expensive legislation now, might as well perfect its roll out and see what happens.  Obamacare may die by its own lack of merit, but the Republicans should no longer be viewed as trying to hasten its demise.

About Dr. Michael J. O'Connell, New Hampshire
Dr. Michael J. O'Connell of Barrington, New Hampshire, has forged a distinguished career spanning over three decades, as entrepreneur, physician, businessman, philanthropist and healthcare consultant. As former owner, administrator and CEO of a 225+ employee multi-specialty medical practice, Dr. O'Connell has dedicated his entire professional life to helping patients with family medicine and especially those experiencing chronic pain and all aspects of addiction. Since selling his family of healthcare businesses, he has never once contemplated retirement despite his rich and fulfilling journey, but instead has turned his focus to consulting in an industry starved for courage and creativity. Having weathered many political, technological and legal challenges, there is hardly a storm he has not confronted, a tempest he has not quelled, an urgent need he has not met. While the talking heads and self-proclaimed experts in the field have assumed the conventions and standards of the times, Dr. O'Connell does not believe in merely reflecting the herd mentality, but rather in leading the charge. Eschewing political correctness, Dr. O'Connell says and does what needs saying and doing, and not what the mindless masses expect. In addition to the continual education afforded by his variegated life experiences, Dr O'Connell earned his BS in Biochemistry at the University of NH in 1975, his Medical Degree from Dartmouth College in 1981, interned at Walter Reed Medical Center in 1982, Residency/Fellowship at UCSF in1986, and finished his Masters in Healthcare Administration at UNH in 1995. Dr. O’Connell enjoys many outdoor activities, including rock climbing, snowboarding, hiking, and golf. Through the decades Dr. O'Connell has supported many non-profit charities to include the St. Charles Home in Rochester NH, the Tri City VNA and Hospice, Hyder House, and Cocheco Valley Humane Society. To the latter organization alone Dr. O'Connell has donated over $180,000 and pledged another $250,000 in the “Bring-Us-Home” campaign for a new building. His “Matching Donations Christmas drive” has generated over $175,000 in charitable giving from the community. In addition Dr. O'Connell has participated in many dozens of other volunteer and donation efforts locally as well as in Africa and the Dominican Republic.
