You'll note that the alleged "pro-lifers", the most dishonest term a group ever labeled itself with, are mot screaming and freaking about about this. Probably hard to get their heads around anything that doesn't make them feel super-cool and all jesusy. Fucktards.
I'd like to know what they're prepared to do about it. The US has a better record on infant mortality, in the industrial world, than...Latvia. Nothing against Latvians. But, err, you know...wealthiest country in the world, all that. Of course, "doing something" would require helping poor people. And BROWN PEOPLE! Oh mah gawd, if rich white xtians started helping brown people, then where does it stop! Next thing you know they'll be raising families and having a longer life expectancy! Getting good paying jobs! Where will our serfs come from?! Won't anyone think of the serfs!
Nah, instead, we'll just let babies die, because we don't want government running healthcare. Never mind that a single-payer system has nothing to do with government running healthcare and everything to do with people helping each other. Let's just stick with that "rugged individualist" bullshit the lying "conservatives" and pie-in-the-sky libertarians yammer about.
Bunch of shitsuckers.
Assuming that all uninsured sick children have the same kind of trust fund that Georgie had, Bush explains his rationale for denying health care and cutting off funding to the CHIP program.
"I support the initial intent of the program," Bush said in an interview with The Washington Post after a factory tour and a discussion on health care with small-business owners in Landover. "My concern is that when you expand eligibility . . . you're really beginning to open up an avenue for people to switch from private insurance to the government."
Bravely misunderstanding the arguments of communist sympathizers like Sen. Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. Hatch (R-Utah), Bush continues to protect the delicate market system from the freeloading terror of poor kids with diseases.
In a seemingly unrelated story, the cost of the war in Iraq is now $444,519,508,302.
