    Right-wing media set sights on family of 11-year-old who spoke about his mother's death at health care event - CafeMom

    According to a New York Times report, Marcelas Owens appeared at a March 11 press conference with Senate Democrats and spoke about his mother's death. The Times reported that Marcelas' mother, "Tiffany Owens, died of pulmonary hypertension in 2007 at age 27 after losing her health insurance because she could no longer work. Ms. Owens had been an assistant manager at a Jack in the Box restaurant." CNN.com further reported that Marcelas said at the event, "I came out here for health care, I got involved because my mom was a health care activist, she testified and participated in rallies. She wanted people to have health care and not wait till management level to be offered health care."


    On the March 12 edition of his nationally syndicated radio show, Rush Limbaugh aired a clip of Marcelas' remarks at the health care event and said, "Now, this is unseemly, exploitative, an 11-year-old kid being forced to tell this story all over just to benefit the Democrat Party and Barack Obama." Limbaugh later said, referring to Marcelas, "Your mom would have still died, because Obamacare doesn't kick in until 2014."

    SEIU paid for this kid to come to Washington and exploited this 11 year old to advance their agenda. Disgusting.

    Remember how the right rallied around the poor woman on life support in FL?

    They care not who they use up to gain their political ends.

    An 11 year old tells his mother's story ...a 27 year old who works at Jack-in-the-box and loses her healthcare because she can no longer work. She dies because of her lack of insurance.
    An 11 year old kid who recognizes he does not want others to suffer what his mother suffered and dares speaks out

    And the Right Wing Malkin, Beck and Limbaugh attack an 11 year old?

    Your mother would have died anyway kid....thats the side that is fighting against Americans getting healthcare?

    Oh nose, the new outrage of the day.

    Progressives-Democrats have a habit of using women, children and the disabled as human shields (props). Then "of course" you aren't allowed to say anything about them or you get a thread like this.:lol:

    SEIU wouldn't pay for this woman's care when she was alive, but paid to fly her son to Washington now that she's dead.

    Oh no! Stating a fact is somehow bad!

    Using the kid to pass this agenda - good

    Pointing out the problems with his story - bad! It's a vicious attack!

    What they dont tell you is that:

    The woman had treatment.

    She would have qualified for government assistance.

    Even if they pass this, she still would have died.

    It's sad that this boy lost his mother. But you know what, every boy will lose his mother someday. Passing Obamacare won't change that. It's a lie to pretend that it will. And it's disgusting to use a child in such a decietful manner.
