So, I decided to get in touch with Doctor Foker. Via email, Foker said he is not only "generally supportive" of Obamacare, but thinks it didn't go far enough, saying, "Unfortunately, it was written by the insurance and drug companies so not great. Most of the many flaws of American medical care are still present." Foker also suggested that Republicans should be happy with what is a Republican-developed, "private-solution," but they are more interested in obstructionism, saying, "they're never happy."
Not quite, the "I never would have gotten into medicine if Obamacare was around way back when!" that Johnson suggests.
Plus, the procedure that saved Johnson's daughters life?
Think Progress' Igor Volsky found that the very such first operations were not even performed in the United States, but in the socialized medicine countries of Brazil and France.There's more at Uppity Wisconsin at the link above.
