Medical Miracle: Dialysis man survives 11 years on the run in mountainous terrain

By Rady Ananda

The White House announced tonight in a special mystery broadcast that a bullet wound to the head killed Osama bin Laden last week. Amazing. Not that Obama is lying, nor that Osama is dead.  But that a man on dialysis since at least 1998, on the run from the most technologically advanced military in human history, survived until 2011 in rugged terrain with — no doubt — interrupted access to kidney care.

The conclusion is inescapable: Barack Obama and the majority of the Democrats never had any intention of bringing reform to health care.
