During GOP Debate, when RP asked about sick young man audience yells "Let him DIE!".

During the Republican Debate, Ron Paul was asked about a hypothetical young man without insurance who gets sick. Ron Paul said you have to live by your choices.

When the moderator asked, "So we should let him die?" and then the audience started wildly cheering, "Yea, let him die!".

And how many of those people in the audience were old and fat? Well, from what they were showing, most of them. How many have Medicare and Social Security? And they were cheering, "Let him die?" because he had no insurance?

I thought it was bad enough when they cheered when Rick Santorum talked about ending "Medicare".

These people are insane. What other explanation could there be?

You agree with "Let him die"?

That's Jan Brewer's health plan. She's the Republican Governor of Arizona and Conservative heroine.

If he died he'd only wind up voting for a Democrat

In a Republic, actually
Ron Paul said you have to live by your choices.

The snag here is are people without health insurance ‘by choice’ or due to circumstances beyond their control. Have children without health insurance ‘made a choice.’ What of someone who made all the ‘right choices,’ and played by the rules and suddenly finds himself laid off through no fault of this own at age 53 due to a severe recession – he now has no health insurance, was this ‘by choice.’

Or are only the wealthy entitled to health insurance.

These people are insane. What other explanation could there be?

They are not ‘insane’ but they do adhere blindly to dogma which has little in common with reality.

Your healthcare should not be something you are forced to trade off when making economic decisions

If you are struggling and must decide between paying the rent, your gas and electric bill and your rising health insurance bill which do you pay?

If the car you need to get to work needs a $2000 repair...which of your bills do you cut out

Health care should not be a game of Russian roulette

I wonder if the people who screamed yes were some of the same people who also scream about how the government is going to ration healthcare.
