IT SEEMS THE WINGNUTS/REPUBLICANS ARE WHINING BIG-TIME OVER THE HARD-HITTING OBAMA SuperPac Ad featuring a worker whose wife died of cancer after he lost health insurance as a result of Bain closing his plant. Michael Kinsley writes:
"It is uncontested that lack of insurance is what killed this woman. And this is hardly a unique situation. It is statistically certain that, in our absurd current healthcare system, layoffs will cause people to lose their insurance, and it is statistically certain that losing insurance will cost some of them their lives. This puts the Republican nightmare scenarios about "death panels" in the healthcare debate two years ago in some perspective. Romney has promised to stop implementation of the Obama healthcare reform on "Day One" of his administration, and to kill it by legislation as soon as possible thereafter. So even if he isn't responsible for the death of Ranae Soptic, he will be responsible for future deaths, if he is elected — and this time with malice aforethought."
Call it what you will. The AWFUL TRUTH is that Republican policies aimed at denying health care to people where it exists (see Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, here and here) and Mitt Romney's BLOODTHIRSTY vow to repeal Obamacare on "day one" have resulted and will result in people dyingI call it mass murder. What do wingnuts and Republicans call it: "Fiscal responsibility," "tax cuts for the 'job creators'," or "thinning out the herd?"
