How Obamacare is Viewed

Can you name this strange old tool? Do you know what it is?

Description: Tobacco Smoke Enema Kit

Tobacco Smoke Enemas (1750s – 1810s)  The tobacco enema was used to infuse tobacco smoke into a patient’s rectum for various medical purposes,  primarily the resuscitation of  drowning victims. A rectal tube inserted into the anus was connected to a fumigator and bellows that forced the smoke towards the rectum. The warmth of the smoke was thought to promote  respiration, but doubts about the credibility of tobacco enemas led to the popular phrase “blow smoke up one’s ass.”
This has been reintroduced in Washington D.C. , by the Obama Administration. It will be part of the New Health Care Program. Obamacare.
