In a little-noticed speech to the Iowa Republican Party this month, Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul mocked President Obama’s signature health care overhaul, noting the 122,000 new medical diagnostic codes doctors will have to use in order to inform the government about injuries sustained by Americans.

Those codes, said Sen. Paul, a medical doctor himself, include line-items for ‘injuries sustained from a turtle,’ ‘walking into a lamppost’ and  ‘injuries sustained from burning water skis.’

Paul has attracted attention in recent weeks for spending time in the Hawkeye State, because it’ will be among the first states to weigh in during the 2016 Republican presidential primary season.

As a video of Paul’s remarks surfaced Monday on YouTube [2], news emerged that a CNN/Opinion Research poll showed 54 percent of Americans don’t support Obamacare.
