Protect Americans from terrorists? OK. Protect Americans against disease and illness? No way!

Rep. Alan Grayson said, “I’m sure that if we learned that al-Qaida was going to launch an attack on the United States and kill 44,789 Americans at any time next year, I’m sure that we would do anything in our power to prevent that. I submit to you we should do the same about [the 45,000 Americans who die needlessly each year simply because they lack health insurance]. We should do exactly the same here because we face the same threat.”

And at a Republican anti-health care rally, an anti-health care protester collapsed and had to be taken for medical treatment by paramedics. I hope you’ve got a great job, buddy, or you’ll soon be drowning in medical bills!
