Reid: Cancer-Stricken Sen. Coburn ‘In the Weeds’ on Obamacare

Senate Majority leader Harry Reid has shrugged off cancer patient Sen. Tom Coburn’s concerns for Americans that the majority of cancer specialty centers in the United States are not covered by Obamacare.

Reid, a Nevada Democrat, said the Oklahoma Republican was “in the weeds” when it comes to the Affordable Care Act, according to the Washington Examiner.

Coburn, who is battling a recurrence of prostate cancer, lashed out on Tuesday at the coverage given to cancer victims under the Affordable Care Act.

“Nineteen of the cancer centers in this country, only five are covered under Obamacare,” he said, blaming the low payments under the Affordable Care Act for the problem.

“You know, it’s a market, and what they’ve done is they’ve priced it where these cancer centers, a lot of them, aren’t going to participate because they don’t get paid to cover the costs.”

Coburn, a medical doctor who plans to retire at the end of the year even though his term runs through 2016, revealed earlier this year that his cancer center would not cover him, but it has since changed its policy and accepted him as a patient.

  2. Guys, I know you get tired of hearing this, but as a hospice nurse, I have more work (my agency as well) than I know what to do with. Medicare pays the patient’s bills very generously if they don’t pursue curative treatment.

    Two shades away from Soylent Green…..

  3. Harry is 74. I’m sure that’s too old to warrant any heroic lifesaving measures when the time comes, right Harry?

  4. I usually don’t wish ill will on someone, but I can make an exception for the miserable, twisted, immoral, truly evil sack of shit that is presently running the US Senate.

    …running it into the ground, I might add.

  7. Funny. If I didn’t know better, I’d think it was the guy on the left who was ill. Reid’s looking a little jaundiced these days in any light.

  8. Harry Reid is a nasty miserable little weasel. It’s time for him to go to the nursing home. I thought the rat bastard was at least 80. Hop he rots, soon.
