|Playing Doctor for ObamaCare|
|Posted by: Meredith Jessup at 2:24 PM|
| During Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee's town hall meeting... you know, the one where this happened... a doctor stood to voice her support for the proposed health care plan. |
When prompted, Dr. Roxana Mayer told the congresswoman she had been practicing medicine for four year and told the Houston Chronicle that she was a "pediatric primary care physician." In their story recapping the meeting, the Chronicle noted:
A photo of Dr. Mayer hugging the congresswoman also ran with the story:

Some people might recognize the face of the woman who sat in the background while Mayer stood to praise ObamaCare. That woman, who accompanied Mayer to the town hall meeting, was Maria Isabel--the Obama devotee who ran a campaign office which proudly displayed the Che Guevara flag.
What a circus. Let this meeting be a "teachable moment" for everyone attending town halls: question what you hear and keep your eyes open for loons.
