It's awesome that Herman Cain survived cancer. It helped that he could pay for the treatment.

Last month, during a GOP presidential debate, former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain scored major points when he spoke about his personal experience surviving stage IV cancer. Cain claimed that if he'd been covered under President Barack Obama's health care plan, he'd be dead by now. He suggested that if bureaucrats had been involved, his treatment would have been delayed and probably would have led to an early death.

It was a compelling story, but an incomplete one. As Cain makes clear in his new book, This is Herman Cain! My Journey to the White House, he is probably alive today because he's rich. And that's not something Obamacare would have affected one way or another.

Cain devotes a whole chapter of his new book to his battle with cancer. He never once mentions insurance companies not paying for treatment, skimping on reimbursement, or disqualifying his claims. He never mentions having to fend off threats that his coverage will be revoked. He never has trouble paying the bills or getting to the hospital or into the best treatment programs. Instead, Cain's health care story is a happy tale of selfless doctors and the brilliance of the private sector.

Cain had stage IV colon and liver cancer. He received the best care money can buy, including best doctors and cancer treatment centers.

How unfair! The only solution is socialized medicine. That way everyone dies.

Seriously, if anyone wants to read how Cain used his money and "connection" to survive his stage IV colon and liver cancer - the OP link is worth clicking on. It's hilarious, and hypocritical, that Cain made the statement that he would have died under ObamaCare.

How fucked up is your world view when you can use the story of someone surviving stage four cancer AGAINST them?:cuckoo:

Talk about twisting a story.

Would this story have been written if Herman were a lady and had defeated Breast cancer?

Only if she were a Republican/conservative.

Now they are bitching because someone CAN PAY for their OWN HEALTHCARE.

There's some real scum in our country and a few are employed at Mother Jones

Well since he now has a pre-existing condition, he would be able to buy health insurance under Obamacare where he would be rejected before

Cain's health insurance and elite treatment would not have been affected under ObamaCare.

Yeah, play that CON$ervative perpetual VICTIM card!!! :lol:

Notice how all the CON$ are trying to deflect away from the fact that Herman AQUILA Cain is a pathological liar, an expert at lying with half truths!

Beware of the half-truth. You may have gotten hold of the wrong half.
