Ron Paul’s former campaign manager died young without health insurance

During the Tea Party debate recently, Ron Paul was asked if someone who opt’ed out of health insurance should be allowed to die. The crowd cheered “Yes!” in a bizarre mob-like execution style fashion. Paul said “That’s what freedom is all about.” Now we learn that Paul’s former campaign manager died at the age of 49 due to pneumonia without health insurance. His mother was left with around $400,000 in medical bills. On the bright side, at least as Paul would see it, he died as a free man, because “that’s what freedom is all about.” However, I don’t think that’s what Patrick Henry meant when he said “give me freedom or give me death.”

So, for the record, the Tea Party cheered Ron Paul when he said freedom is about letting someone die, but boo’ed him when he pointed out the actual motives for 9/11. At least I no longer have to defend Ron Paul.

  1. Ron Paul is an ass, and he also wants to abolish FEMA! Him and his son are whack jobs too!

Let me know what you think.
