Obamacare’s Racial Quotas

Did you know that Obamacare contains racial quotas? Well, like Nancy Pelosi famously said, they had to pass it before you could find out what’s in it.

Affirmative action is bad enough because it means adopting a racist system, but racial preferences promote incompetence because you once begin selecting people based on skin color, qualifications fall out of the picture. And that’s bad news in many fields, but it’s lethal in medicine where the difference between a competent doctor and a doctor who got in because he fit a quota is a live or dead patient.

Under ObamaCare, if a medical or dental school wants to increase its chances of receiving many different kinds of grants and contracts from the federal government, it should “have a record of training individuals who are from underrepresented minority groups” or “from underrepresented minorities.” This is because ObamaCare requires the secretary of health and human services to give priority to the entities that have demonstrated such a record in the awarding of these grants and contracts to medical and dental schools and other entities.

Read the whole thing. When we talk about getting back to the founding of our country, we certainly aren’t talking about going back to their health and dental practices. I thought progressives were supposed to be about progress. (Okay, that’s a lie, I never really thought that. They’re quite regressive.)
