The Republican health plan: "Let him die". Remember?


http://gawker.com/5840024/ron-pauls-campaign-manager-died-of-pneumonia-penniless-and-uninsured is a classic story: Ron Paul, he who said that people who can’t afford assurance are choosing to die, let the man behind his presidential campaign die, uninsured, of pneumonia. And then he stuck his dead friend’s grieving mother with a bill for $400,000.00.

This was in 2008, and people might be so distracted by the imperfections of the ACA that have been dominating the media of late, that they have forgotten the inhumanity of the “Republican” party when it comes to this issue. We should remember this fact: the Repubs have never put forth a health care plan of their own. Except, of course, for “let him die”.

More at the link. Remember this, when the ACA seems like a cluster-fuck: the Teapublican alternative is far, far worse.

1. Ah yes, that old rotten chestnut

I think that was one of the early nails in the teabagger's coffin...

2. Pity they turned out to be undead.

More nails are still needed.
