Can't Afford Health Insurance? You must be White Trash
The cluelessness, detachment and insensitivity of some folks is simply astounding.
Congressman David Dreier (R-Ca)
On Monday evening, July 9, 2012, Congressman David Dreier, a Republican from California, during a debate on the GOP's bill to eliminate the Affordable Care Act, said that insurance companies should be allowed to discriminate against people with brain tumors and not be required to cover them. You just have to love the way the Republicans so faithfully defend the interests of their constituents - the corporations who have bought and fully paid for their services.
Strategic Health Care
From the "Let them eat cake" file: Strategic Health Care, a lobbying firm that bills itself as "widely respected for our expertise," is throwing a party for congressional staffers next week. They want to get together and - I guess, from the way the invitation reads - trade stories about the poor white trash who can't afford the health care services and meds they peddle.
