    Injury Classifications for Turtle Bites & Burning Water Skis? Here’s Rand Paul’s Hilarious Obamacare Rant

    With the implementation of Obamacare, doctors will soon be required to use roughly 122,000 new medical diagnostic codes to inform the federal government of injuries sustained by Americans, so says Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.

    The new codes, Sen. Paul explained, include classifications for "injuries sustained from a turtle," "walking into a lamppost" and "injuries sustained from burning water skis."

    "Your government just wants to take care of you," he added, criticizing the new law's 9,000-plus pages of new regulations. "They don't think you're smart enough to make these decisions."

    "Included among these codes," the senator continued, "will be 312 new codes for injuries from animals; 72 new codes for injuries just from birds; 9 new codes for 'injuries from the macaw."'

    "The macaw?" he asked. "I've asked physicians all over the country, 'Have you ever seen an injury from a macaw?"'

    He continued, adding that he had found "two new injury codes under Obamacare for 'injuries sustained from a turtle."'

    "Now, you might say, 'Well, turtles are dangerous' -- but why do you have to have two codes?" he asked. "Your doctor has to inform the government whether you've been struck by a turtle or bitten by a turtle." <snipped, full story at link>
    I want to laugh but I am crying.

    Please, make it go away

    How would you be struck by a turtle? Do people fling turtles at each other in the heat of an argument?
