Republicans & Media Are Officially Through The Looking Glass Here, People

Apparently “study hard and stay in school” is controversial now.

The right really does want America to fail. And the media views this as a viewpoint equally as valid as “What the hell is wrong with you people?  Are you insane???”, if not more so.

Not Having Health Insurance Is Teh Awesome!

Health insurance?  Who needs health insurance?

At a recent town hall held by Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA), an elderly gentleman named Jim Parker stood up and told the congressman that he was recently treated for colon cancer. “I did not have insurance,” he said, because “things didn’t quite work out” after he started his own business. Parker informed Kingston that “a friend of mine was in the same position, and we buried him last January.”

Kingston responded by telling the man that “you did do very well” because he was able to get treated when he arrived at the hospital. Parker responded, “I am functionally bankrupt!” Kingston cut him off and reiterated his point:

But you did get coverage. You didn’t get the insurance, but they won’t turn you down at the door. And we do need to focus on people like you. However, here’s the problem: among other things, in countries that have socialized medicine, you have longer waiting lines, you have bureaucracy…it does lead to rationing.

Hooray! The system worked!  Anyone can get treatment at the ER, and there’s no rationing!  So what if you go bankrupt, at least you have your health!
