Cheering The Death Of The Indigent At The Tea Party Debate
One of the most bizarre moments of last night’s debate came when Ron Paul was asked a question about how he would handle a person who needed immediate medical care but had no money or insurance:
Blitzer asked if under Paul’s libertarian philosophy, a sick man without insurance should be allowed to die in the hospital rather than have the state pay his medical bills. Before Paul could answer that question, shouts of “yes!” and cheering bubbled up from the audience.
Here’s the video:
Paul’s response isn’t objectionable at all, to be quite frank about it. But I’ve really got to wonder about the guys who shouted out “Yea” and those who clapped in response.
