Fidel Castro Hearts ObamaCare!

At the Washington Post, "Cuban Leader Applauds US Health-Care Reform Bill":

It perhaps was not the endorsement President Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress were looking for.

Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro on Thursday declared passage of American health care reform "a miracle" and a major victory for Obama's presidency, but couldn't help chide the United States for taking so long to enact what communist Cuba achieved decades ago.

"We consider health reform to have been an important battle and a success of his (Obama's) government," Castro wrote in an essay published in state media, adding that it would strengthen the president's hand against lobbyists and "mercenaries."
Hey, awesome! I'm sure recipients of the Cuban healthcare system can rejoice in El Presidente Castro's ringing affirmation of ObamaCare! See, El Marco, "Health Care Cuban Style":


And check out America's Dear Leader trumpeting the benefits of socialized medicine in the United States ... Yes We Can! ...

This is pretty funny when you consider the old communist bastard had to fly in a doctor from Spain to treat him for his own illness due to the fact that there is no such thing as Cuban health care.

I'm rushing to Cuba for my next medical exam.

The bill steals from senior citizens--$500 billion over the next ten years.
