How To Save $50,000 On An Amputation

An elderly man protesting ObamaCare lost his finger last night when a thug bit it off!

What is it with Team Obama and their amputation fetish?

California authorities say a clash between opponents and supporters of health care reform ended with one man biting off another man's finger.

Ventura County Sheriff's Capt. Frank O'Hanlon says about 100 people demonstrating in favor of health care reforms rallied Wednesday night on a street corner. One protester walked across the street to confront about 25 counter-demonstrators.

O'Hanlon says the man got into an argument and fist fight, during which he bit off the left pinky of a 65-year-old man who opposed health care reform.

A hospital spokeswoman says the man lost half the finger, but doctors reattached it and he was sent home the same night.

She says he had Medicare.

O'Hanlon says the attacker fled but authorities have a good description.

As an un-American evil monger, I wonder if Obama's rabble-rousing rhetoric has pushed his supporters too far...

Gateway Pundit reminds us of Obama's history of violent language:
I dare say we've reached the point of diminishing returns in the ObamaCare debate. Perhaps it's time to scrap the bill and change the subject.


Man Who Had Finger Bit Off By Obamacare Supporter Tells His Story To Neil Cavuto

MoveOn: finger amputation 'regrettable'
A spokeswoman for MoveOn responded to an incident this morning in which a supporter allegedly bit the finger off a conservative demonstrator amid a health care-related fracas in Ventura County, calling the violence "regrettable."

"They weren’t able to attach it because a human bite has so much bacteria"

Finger spit out onto street
“I picked it up and it had a piece of gravel stuck on it.”

Law enforcement is investigating, but it seems possible that charges may be warranted on both sides.

That's the title of the day. I have read this story on a couple of other blogs, but your title definitely makes a statement.

Obamacare in action. He can send out his thugs to take care of any necessary and unnecessary amputations. :-(

Let's start the search right now. First, we can eliminate all the vegetarians from the list of suspects.

Nickie - That eliminates any and all suspects!

I heard part of the interview Neil Cavuto did with the guy who lost his finger. He was very calm and didn't seem angry or as if he cared if they caught the moron who bit his finger off! Then he admitted - as he was being interviewed - he was also medicated! Wonder how he'll feel when the meds wear off!

Great Post RK
You really said it perfectly!

Besides this being wrong on so many levels, I also think this is just the worse! Obummer get's all wee wee'd up over his racist buddy and shoots off his mouth about a police officer he doesn't even know the facts about. Where is his "teachable moment" here?

The moment would be. Don't bite off fingers unless you bring a baggie to save the leftovers".

Son3: Welcome to the Obama era!

BB: Thank you. Decided I needed a catchy title to help the post stand out among the hoards of other blog posts on this story.

O6: I never expected the O-thugs to get this violent.

LCR: Hey, maybe you will find him...didn't that happen in your neck of the woods?

NG: I wonder if O will pardon the guy.

JL: Just ran across the video. Posted it.

AB: I can only imagine the uproar if the perp had been an ObamaCare foe.
