Ron Paul: Man of Integrity

    Dude practices what he preaches. Let 'em die if they gambled on no health insurance and lost. We all have the freedom to do that. Even our campaign managers.

    I've seen this story circulated before.

    1) There's no connection between the man's death and his lack of health insurance. He clearly received medical care.

    2) I keep waiting for someone to ask Paul if he donated to the family's charity to pay for the medical bills.

    Do all uninsured have a Ron Paul to cover the bill?

    I dunno. Maybe. But this uninsured was specifically picked out for his connection to Ron Paul, so what Ron Paul did would seem to be relevant information.

    No big surprise. What do you expect of a party in which the spectators at a debate cheer when someone without health insurance dies because they can't afford the payments?

    To be fair, the example quoted was a healthy 30-year old with a good job who chose not to be insured, gambling that he was healthy anyway. Still an asshole move to cheer someone dying, though.

    Maybe we can eat the uninsured. Win. Win.

    Does anyone know why the mother of a single man would be responsible for his medical bills after he dies?

    No doubt she has no legal responsibility, but reprehensible bill collectors do things like this all the time.

    I dunno, it was probably in the well-researched story which did not in any way try to score cheap political points by making an emotional appeal.

    A Modest Proposal?

    Have them as a fuel source for our cars.

    Oh, wait, the Koch Brothers would not like that.
