McCamy Reports: Bill Kristol’s Project for a NEW New American Century: “Liberate” Cuba’s Doctors

Inside sources report that conservative William Kristol has a plan for easing the nation’s physician shortage which is estimated to reach 45,000 by 2020. Invade Cuba and “liberate” its doctors. Undeclared presidential candidate and GOP front runner Jeb Bush is said to be “intrigued” by the idea.

Rather than increasing funding of medical schools, Kristol proposes that the U.S. borrow a page from the Bush/Cheney administration. “Cuba has the highest number of doctors per capita of any country in the world except Italy. Now, Italy is on the other side of the Atlantic. Cuba is just south of Florida. I propose that we invade Cuba, topple its dictator, liberate its doctors and bring them all back to the United States. Health care provider shortage solved. And since they are all bilingual, we’ll save money on interpreters, too.”

In 1997, Kristol’s group the Project for a New America Century proposed that the United States increase its national security and decrease its dependence on foreign oil by invading Iraq and seizing its oil supplies. The Neo Conservatives were successful in persuading President George W. Bush to carry out their plan. “For the low cost of $1.9 trillion—that’s $6300 per U.S. citizen---Chevron, Shell, Exxon and other companies gained access to Iraqi oil fields. These companies stand to make millions, maybe even billions of dollars---and keep our gas guzzlers rolling for another decade while discouraging green energy research.”

Cuba has more than 68,000 doctors. Though the country is considered impoverished, its health care system is one of the best in North America.

“It isn’t fair for a godless communist nation like Cuba to horde a valuable resource like physicians,” said Christian Broadcasting Chairman Pat Robertson. “When Jesus cured the leper, he signaled that healthcare is the prerogative of good, Christian people. I call upon my country to launch a crusade to liberate those doctors in the name of God and Democracy.”

Executives of national hospital chains have expressed interest in an open auction of the “liberated” doctors. However, the Pentagon says that it has first dibs. “We’ve got to clean up our mess at the VA first,” said a high ranking officer who spoke on the condition that he not be named. “If there’s any doctors left over, the private sector can have them.”

1. K&R.

Once upon a time, I remember that young people wanted to become doctors because they cared about people that were ill or afflicted with a disability. After three decades of combusting catnip, the only thing I see when I have a medical appointment is another person trying to make the car payment on a vehicle that I never dreamed of being able to own even when I was at the top of my career. The best medical care that I've had during my adult life has come from nurse practitioners so maybe it's time to stage another Bay of Pigs and invade Cuba to liberate those doctors.

However, with the risk involved I also suggest giving Ted Cruz an opportunity to demonstrate his patriotism and place him on the front line of the invasion force. I also will be the first one to advocate that the president not do a damn thing that would violate the Constitution if he becomes a POW and that the law be altered so that the president has to give Congress 30 years notice if he/she is going to exchange prisoners.

The ultimate win, win combination!

2. Poor Towlie. If you lived in my county, I'd take care of you.

But you are correct. We need more people who chose health care because they CARE and fewer who choose it because it is a path to making money.

3. Invading & plundering a country for their assets is the PNAC way --

it's more profitable for them, it provides in an incidental way the only jobs Republicans care to muster up...but it's wrong & it isn't the American way.

What the U.S. should do is improve relations with Cuba to get those doctors instead of dreaming up ways to make our kids' & grandkids' world more dangerous.
