So as a follow up to yesterdays interaction with morons, lets move on to statement 2. (See yesterdays post for a reminder of what type of idiocy we are dealing with.)
Statement 2: Obamacare is going to bankrupt the country. It has to be repealed.
Reality: Yes, healthcare costs something, but denying it to people costs us more. I asked the dumb f*cker who made these statements if he felt comfortable turning people away, and he said its not a problem, those people will just go to the ER if they need help. Ignoring the fact that ER visits are a vast order of magnitude higher in costs than preventative care. These are teh same geniuses that want to shut down Poison Control Centers as unneeded costs, even though studies show that every dollar spent there saves $7 dollars in emergency costs. But no, shut down healthcare so the wealthy don’t have to pay to keep the peasants healthy. The crazy part is the dumb f*cker who said this is definetly a peasant, but he is do d*mb he doesn’t realize it. I guess the republic*nts count that as a victory.
“House Republicans have voted more than 30 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act, claiming the law will increase the deficit, hurt job growth, and make health care more expensive. But in a letter to House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) the CBO explained that the latest repeal bill, H.R. 6079, would reduce spending by $890 billion but slash revenues by $1 trillion.” – Eric W.

Statement 2B: I would rather turn people away at the ER door who can’t pay – I have no problem letting people die, they were just too lazy to get jobs. Yeah, they were too lazy to get jobs, what an *ss. If Romney hadn’t shipped them all overseas while paying 13% taxes maybe they could find jobs with healthcare. It was this statement that made me realize what an ass this fellow was.
Join us tomorrow for the final episode in what a dumb f*cker this guy was.
