Should a person, who refused to buy health insurance and finds himself with an expensive life-threatening illness, be denied medical care? ODonnell charges that Republicans would gleefully impose the death penalty themselves on sick people, if just given the chance.
So clarify. When Congressman Ron Paul was asked if we should just let the man die, a couple of people in the audience did shout, Yes! (The same two dudes?)
But Ron Paul said, No. Too bad more attention wasnt paid to his comments about practicing medicine before there was Medicaid. Dr. Paul is indeed old enough to remember what that was like. And what did he say? I practiced medicine before we had Medicaid in the early 1960s when I got out of medical school. I practiced at Santa Rosa Hospital in San Antonio and the churches took care of them. We never turned anybody away from the hospital.
Thats not meanness of spirit. Thats not bloodlust. And its certainly not evil.
You might say its evidence of soul.
