Mitch McConnell Accidentally Says What He Thinks About Poors and Uninsureds

  king of all he surveys

Here’s something fun about Thursday’s Supreme Court Ruling (which, in case you have been living on Mars in a cave with your fingers in your ears, upheld the Affordable Care Act): it has gotten certain Republicans (like *cough* Mitch McConnell *cough*) so upset that they are going on the teevee and ACTUALLY SAYING WHAT THEY THINK. Like: who gives a damn about uninsured people? And: why would we actually need a PLAN to help them? And the worst part about it is that it was Fox News and not the librul media that tricked him into saying it, specifically, Chris Wallace, who should know better by now than to ask questions.

First Chris Wallace reminds Mitch McConnell that Obamacare provides health insurance to 30,000,000 uninsured people and then he asks him what the GOP would do to replace it and provide universal coverage, and the answer is THE FREE MARKET, DUH, because what do you think this is, Europe? (Srsly.) This is AMERICA, and we spend money to protect people from TERRORISM and other nonspecific military threats. If people die of something besides terrorism or war, well, that’s their problem.
