She’s a former nun, an Army major, a lawyer, a college professor and a physician. Now Dr. Barbara Bellar wants to be a state senator from Illinois, and she has one question about ObamaCare.
“What the blank could possibly go wrong?” Bellar asks, tongue in cheek, after delivering a one-sentence indictment of President Obama’s health care law.
Obamacare Summed Up in One Sentence, albeit the longest sentence evah ?:)
Bellar, a Republican candidate running for office in the state’s 18th district, gave the extended one-liner while warming up the crowd at a recent event for GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Someone captured it on video, and now the doctor’s diagnosis of the Affordable Care Act is an Internet sensation with more than 2 million views.
“I had no idea I was being videotaped,” Bellar told FoxNews.com. “I meant it as a light opener to a more serious issue. It did take on a life of its own.”
But Bellar, who is running for office for the first time, has strong feelings about ObamaCare, which she considers an “erosion” of rights. She is seeking to succeed Edward Maloney (d), who is retiring from the district, which includes Chicago’s 19th Ward, and has picked up the endorsement of the Chicago Tribune.
Of the upcoming election, Bellar says that she plans to shake up the statehouse where President Obama got his start in politics.
“They will not know what hit them,” she said.
