I believe we've found our ObamaCare icon

Meet Donna Simpson:

Donna_Simpson.jpg
Miss Simpson, 42, from New Jersey, USA, already holds the Guinness World Record as the world's biggest mum.

She was 520lbs when she had daughter Jacqueline, three, becoming the largest woman to give birth.

Now she weighs a mega 600lbs, or 43 stone, and hopes to break the 1,000lbs or half a ton mark.

Miss Simpson, who wears XXXXXXXL dresses, eats whole cakes and bags of donuts and tries to move as little as possible.

"I'd love to be 1,000lb," she said.

"It might be hard though. Running after my daughter keeps my weight down."

She runs her own website where people pay to watch her eat, or see her wash her huge body.

The cash helps fund the family's $750 a week food shop, which Miss Simpson carries out in her mobility scooter.

She met her partner Philippe, 49, seven years ago on a dating site for plus-size people.

Philippe, who weighs just 150lbs, is a self-confessed fat admirer, who will only look at a woman if she weighs over 28 stone.

But Miss Simpson, who has an older son Devin, 14, from a previous relationship, insists she's healthy.

I think the Obama administration should be parading Ms. Simpson around the country as reason for all of us to dole out hard earned money to help those who should have healthcare.  It'd be perfect.

Don't you?

A vicious post.

How exactly is she the icon? Is she without health insurance or otherwise unable to pay for her health care? (I don't know, but the article doesn't say one way or the other). Is she going to benefit from the Nebraska Kickback or the Louisiana Purchase? (not likely, she doesn't live in either state). Does she suffer from some medical condition that is currently not covered but will be under Obamacare? (don't know, neither do you).

And I presume that your taking shots at her (implicit is your complaining that she behavior drives up medical costs for the public at large) is evidence that you don't engage in any type of behavior that increases the likelihood of your needing more health care and with it, the need for other people to pay higher premiums or taxes to subsidize your health care? No smoking, no driving fast, no eating junk food, no participating in sports, no sedentary lifestyle? If not, then the two of you differ only in the size (no pun intended) of the burden you place on the rest of us to cover you.

If your post had been a lot longer, one would easily point out that YOUR extremely excessive behavior that is openly self-destructive is an excellent metaphor for ObamaCare.

Jealous, aren't you?

ME? Excessive behavior? Au contraire, I am the paragon of proper nutrition, exercise and mental stability.

However, I hear that on the day of the Spring equinox, you can actually balance a fat woman on her head. I might consider paying to see that.

OLDPUPPYMAX:

HusseinCare is about NOTHING but power and control over the lives of some 300 million people. Although the left yearns for the Big Brother-led creation of a helpless, defenseless, clueless and thoroughly irresponsible serf class, I doubt Hussein Care would PERMIT this "lovely" creature to reach her desired half tonnage. Far too expensive in later life, don't you know. She would undoubtedly be fined for each additional hundred pounds or so.

James H:

Healthcare aside, by far the worst player in this is this woman's 150-pound boyfriend. Ms. Simpson clearly has physical or mental issues that led to her weight gain. Instead of trying to help her become healthier like a good boyfriend would, he's excusing her conduct and even helping her eat herself into an early grave.

Yes, she bears personal responsibility. She's pointing the proverbial gun at her own temple and pulling the trigger slowly. But "Philippe" is providing the bullets.

Sadie:

Upon reaching her goal and death she will plead the TWINKIE DEFENSE.

"If only I had had decent healthcare, I could have eaten myself to death with vegetables and a low carb diet"

With her last gasp of air...she whispers ROSEBUD, which immediately is construed by the MSM as RoseBUSH, who promptly place the blame at the feet of any conservative.
