Jon Lovitz: ‘I can’t wait to go to a hospital run by the DMV!’; Says friends are planning layoffs

Post-election snark from comedian Jon Lovitz? Unlike the Nobel Prize, President Obama did earn that.

The disgruntled Dem and frequent Obama critic isn’t looking “Forward!” to dangerously long waits for medical care. And like many Americans, Lovitz is concerned about the devastating impact of Obamacare on business owners and their employees.

As many heartbroken small business owners noted on Twitter, Obama’s reelection means they’re already being forced to lay off dedicated employees. Others shared their personal stories with Lovitz.

President Obama, you built that. Heckuva job, Barry!

Lovitz also took the time to respond to some of his Twitter critics.

Jon Lovitz advocates personal responsibility, calls out the dangers of Obamacare and reads Twitchy?

Welcome to conservative fold, Mr. Lovitz! We’re thrilled to have another happy warrior among us.

Update:

Lovitz continued engaging fans and critics and slaying trolls on Twitter this afternoon.

Facts are hard for some. Pesky truth!

But FAUX NEWZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!111!

See Twitchy? We fully endorse that advice.

Lovitz has been a frequent target of the Left’s sweet and loving “tolerance” since he dared to commit the unforgiveable sin of criticizing Obama. In July, he called out liberals’ despicable race card-playing.

Oh, we’re seeing it, Jon. Keep fighting the good fight!

And, BOOM:

Update:

Lovitz is on a roll:

Aw, snap.

Facts are hard for the Left.

Unfortunately, stories like that are bound to become all too common in the coming months. The truth may be hard to swallow for the Left, but we appreciate Mr. Lovitz’s dedication to putting it out there for all to see.

      Article I, Section 3: “The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments.” I don’t hold out much hope for impeachment. The Senate is controlled by the Democrats, and they will circle the wagons around Pres. Obama, right or wrong.

      A big hearted person should also recognize that obamacare will make those risky waits longer, that it’s causing people to lose their jobs, that it’s going to raise taxes on people barely living paycheck to paycheck, and it’s going to make the costs of everything we buy go up.

      I can acknowledge a need for healthcare reform, but my heart won’t let me support THIS one.

      I’d rather go to the emergency room than a gov’t run health clinic for treatment. I’ve been to both and I got better treatment in the emergency room. Obviously, you’ve never had to wait for hours and hours at a gov’t run health clinic only to be seen for five minutes by a doctor who speaks English so poorly that you can barely understand him because he’s from another country. With doctors quitting left and right, and many of today’s young people not wanting to go into the healthcare profession because it’s too much work for too little pay, the only real difference between today’s gov’t health clinics and Obamacare clinics is going to be that at today’s clinics, you only see the poorest of the poor.

      Under ObamaCare, you’ll have a mixture of classes, because nobody will be able to afford the luxe health insurance that those in Obama’s top tier will be privileged to, including the Congress Critters and their family. Obama’s goal is single payer health care. And since everyone is going to be taxed to pay for this system across the board, why then you will finally see the meaning of “true equality”.
      Remember this saying from Orwell’s Animal Farm: “All animals are equal; it’s just that some animals are more equal than others.” Obama and his cronies and the happy 1% ers that currently inhabit Hollywood are the ones that will be “more equal than others” and never have to suffer under Obamacare.

    • Blue Dilly

      Not to mention hospitals by law can’t turn anyone who needs healthcare away regardless of their ability to pay.

      Private hospitals? Maybe, I’m not sure. But no public hospital can. Same with dentists and eye doctors. If you need care, they can’t turn you away, even if you can’t pay.

      In fact, many hospitals and health care providers have people who work in their cashier’s offices that know of programs (as well as other means) to help low income/no income people and families get healthcare and help them do whatever is necessary (filling out forms, contacting the appropriate people, etc) to ensure no one who needs healthcare will do without.

      Obamacare is unnecessary and is not only going to close businesses, but it will devastate the healthcare professions as well. I personally know doctors and nurses who say they are probably going to change careers if something isn’t done about this, because of the impact it will have on their patients, as well as their own jobs and insurance.

      Oh, and by the way, your average wait time for an E.R. visit is shorter than the wait times at many government free clinics or private practice doctor’s offices (though that is about to change, thanks to Obamacare).

    • Michael Rice

      I never wait mroe than half an hour at the ER and if it is an emergency you go to the front of the line, moron. They willt reat you regardless of if you can pay or not. My ER even has a sign that says stabilizing treatment is required regardless of payment.
      Of ocurse, those week long waits for biopsies and cancer treatments are better…pull your head out of the sand. Asmeicans go to Canada for cheap drugs…Canadians come here to be seen by doctors…think about it.

      Coming soon to you younger folks … I’ve got a chronic problem (don’t go there, please) that has a range of drugs that work on it. The main line ones do nothing for me. A little used drug turns out to work pretty well for me. This drug doesn’t appear as if it will make the “list” for standard treatments.

      My doctor has told me that he’s doing what he can for me in this area. ObamaCare has nice clause — if a doctor prescribes a drug not on the list, they can take his license.

      They don’t have to ration, just take the pill off the list. I won’t die, but if you guys think I’m a curmudgeon now, wait till I can’t take that puppy 2x a day.

    these business owners are not, i believe, laying people off out of spite. they can lay off ten people and keep the other 50 employed or eventually go out of business and let everyone lose their jobs. the problem with these idiots that think jon is lying about this obvious truth is that they think life is a frank capra movie where the good hearted worker gives a speech and everyone bands together and somehow everything turns out right. no one loses their jobs and in fact, everyone gets a raise and then little bunnies do a tap dance and la la la. real people are facing really hard decisions. i think those who are trying to stay in business knowing what is coming at them in a couple years are trying to do the right thing, doing what they have to do to save as many jobs as they can afford.

    It’s true what Lovitz said. My husband is trying his hardest to get his company off the ground and because of the hard times we’ve had the last four years and the hard times we will endure the next 4 years, it’s not coming to fruition for the time being. He’s already looking at cutting positions before they even get officially started since they’re not making any money yet and when they start, they will need nearly all the money for operating costs after paychecks. He will be keeping his employee number down under 50 to avoid Obamacare, and he has no choice because the company just plain can’t afford it. We, as individuals, can’t afford it.
    We may see a decline in the numbers of doctors in the foreseeable future too.

    • Ironhawk86

      They reserve extra venom for the people they expect to support them by the color of the skin and gender. White guy like Lovitz will piss them off. But he’ll never be able to generate the hatred that a black woman like Dash did. The left honestly believes that all non-straight white males are owned by them because they play the identity politics game and the gloves come off when any member of those groups dares to break out of that group-think and be an individualist.
