A statement made by U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador during a town hall meeting Friday morning has drawn criticism by those challenging his stance on health care.
After a woman suggested that the lack of health care was essentially asking people to die, Labrador had a controversial answer at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston.
“That line is so indefensible,” Labrador said. “Nobody dies because they don’t have access to health care.”
I have to admit that when I first heard about this statement I thought it might be an exaggeration or the product of "fake news," because NOBODY could be that stupid, right?
In fact, as you can see from this video, the woman who Rep. Labrador is arguing with, and whom he actually calls a liar, is a nurse who has spent fourteen years working in the ER.
It literally makes my head ache to think that there are people in Congress who are this ignorant, and who are making these life and death decisions for the American people.
This guy is simply not smart enough to do his job.
