People have no problem paying $900 for an iPad, but paying $900 for a drug they have a problem with - it keeps you alive. Why? Because you’ve been conditioned to think health care is something you can get without having to pay for it.

Rick Santorum - making a mockery of his Christian faith on a daily basis.  What cruel and inhumane thing will he say next?

You buy an iPad once.  You buy medication every fucking month, asshole, this is a ridiculous conclusion to draw that has no basis in reality.  Never mind that health care is something we should all get without having to pay for it.  Because it’s a human right.  I honestly think I might not hate anything more than a fake, situational, self-absorbed evangelical.  I really don’t.

This life-saving medication costs about as much as a luxury item only people over a certain income level can afford to buy once? I don’t see the problem.

I can’t afford an iPad. Can I have healthcare now, Rick?

(j/k, thanks to Obamacare I have health insurance, BOOSH)

People have no problem paying through the nose for health insurance and medication and surgery and doctor’s appointments.  Why?  Because you’ve been conditioned to think health care is something you can’t get without having to pay for it.
