On Friday, “Desperate Housewives” star and “healthcare expert” Eva Longoria Parker, MD weighed in on ObamaCare. She claims that, without, ObamaCare, kids “of color” will live with “fear.” (No she’s not really a medical doctor and doesn’t play one on TV, either . . . just on the pages of USA Today).
Eva Longoria Parker Endorses ObamaCare
In an op-ed in USA Today, Friday, she said that without “affordable, comprehensible, and accessible coverage”–all euphemisms for ObamaCare–not only will kids live in fear, but we’re racist because it affects Hispanic and Black people more.
Really? When was the last time Longoria Parker visited the people of Appalachia and Northern Michigan–dirt poor, without healthcare, and mostly White? As we all know, Obamacare won’t “discriminate” against anyone. We’ll all get lousy doctors and terrible healthcare.
Longoria cites the usual propaganda stats from the far-left, deceptively-named Children’s Defense Fund (Hillary Clinton’s buddies).
I like her “Desperate Housewives” alter ego, Gabrielle Solis, far better. She might be evil, selfish, mean, sneaky, and scheming, but, unlike her airhead real-life counterpart, she’d never push for socialized medicine. And she’s a whole lot more likeable. Sometimes art doesn’t imitate life. It’s smarter than that.
Ironically, the Friday op-ed column in USA Today is reserved for minorities. It’s funny to hear an overpaid minority–writing in a column reserved exclusively for minorities–lecture the rest of us about discrimination. Eva. Meet. Mirror.
Never thought I’d miss the days when Eva Longoria talked ad nauseam about her “Brazillian wax.”
