Conservative TV preacher Pat Robertson said this week that Americans needed to stage a “revolution” against President Barack Obama after a trip to the doctor that took too long because his nurse had to use a computer.
“Obamacare has been a massive disaster!” Robertson opined on the Wednesday edition of The 700 Club. “Now doctors have another problem coming down from big government!”
According to a doctor that CBN spoke to in Farmville, Virginia, a government push for standardizing electronic medical records could put his practice out of business.
“We need a revolution in this country to change this stuff,” Robertson lamented. “You know, I had a little procedure or something done. And I’m sitting there, and this nurse is saying, ‘Well, tell us about this.’ And she’s accessing in her computer, ‘Well, how many vitamins do you take? How about something else? When did you have…?’ She spent forever and forever logging stuff into the computer because that’s what they want to do!”
“Well how about me? I’m sick! Help me! Well, that’s too bad. We’ve got to get the records fixed.”
The CBN co-host argued that it was an example of “socialism.”
“It isn’t right,” Robertson agreed. “Ladies and gentlemen, we need a revolution to stop these so-called progressives from destroying this country anymore. But they’re getting pretty close to the tipping point. It is not a pleasant scenario.”
The televangelist added that he didn’t vote for President Obama, “but the American people voted him into office twice, and this is the result.”
“We reap what we sow.”
