The Face of Healthcare Reform - Michael Scott - Huh?!

What?!  I can't be serious, right?  Well I am.  Recently I found a website featuring quotes from NBC's The Office starring Steve Carrell.  This is probably my favorite comedy tv show of all time.  Although, Modern Family is now becoming a close competitor. is a quote that I find may resemble the true feelings of many Democratic leaders. 

You see, I believe elected Democrats truly believe in their cause to reform healthcare, but I think they might be a little out of touch with the majority of Americans on their process of doing it.  So read this quote and imagine, for a second, that it came from Nancy Pelosi, and not Michael Scott.  Kind of like what Liberals still do with Sarah Palin and Tina Fey.  People are still quoting Sarah Palin as saying "I can see Russia from my house..." and they didn't even know that Tina Fey said that!  So do the same thing here...

"The most sacred thing I do is care. And provide for my workers, my family. I give them money. I give them food. Not directly, but through the money. I heal them. Today I am in charge of picking a great new healthcare plan. Right, that’s what this is all about. Does that make me their doctor? Um… yes. In a way. Yeah, like a specialist."  -- Michael Scott
