This is priceless ...

Investor’s Business Daily, with mouth-foaming eagerness to further the demagoguery of corporate fearmongering, lies, and distortions about the healthcare debate and the bad bad public option, stated in its July 31 editorial:
People such as scientist Stephen Hawking wouldn't have a chance in the U.K., where the National Health Service would say the life of this brilliant man, because of his physical handicaps, is essentially worthless.

Professor Hawking, who was born in Britain, has lived there all his life, and unlike the faux geniuses at IBD could well be the world’s smartest person, fired back:

"I wouldn't be here today if it were not for the NHS. I have received a large amount of high-quality treatment without which I would not have survived."

Investor’s Business Daily, another right wing rag unmasked.
