On the Republican myth of benign intent… “Nobody dies from lack of health insurance”

Representative Raul Labrador stuck his foot into his mouth as far back as it could go in a recent townhall. “Nobody dies from lack of access to health care…”

The simple stupidity of his remark is mind boggling. People who get sick need medical care. Without it they get sicker. Some people will die. It is not rocket scientist material.

Monika was 37 when she died.

She broke her toe.

She had no insurance. When her mother tried to get her to go to the doctor when her leg started hurting she told her she couldn’t. She didn’t have any insurance and couldn’t pay for it.

The pain in her leg was a blood clot. Eventually it traveled up her leg and into her heart. It exploded and Monika died in agony.

Yes people die from lack of health insurance.

I don’t really think Rep. Labrador spoke for himself…
