Remember ‘compassionate conservatism’? They lied about the compassionate part then, and everyone knew it.
At last night’s Tea Party-hosted debate, the nation got a glimpse of what exactly conservatives are trying to conserve:
Discussing the individual mandate, CNN’s Blitzer asked Paul a hypothetical question about a young man without insurance who is severely injured and requires hospitalization for six months. Who would pay for his care? Should society “just let him die?” “Yes,” came a few calls from the crowd. It was chilling. Paul said charities would pick up the tab as they did when he was first practiced medicine, in the pre-Medicare era. The macabre audience response wasn’t the first. At the last GOP debate, the mention of Texas’ more than 200 executions drew cheers.
The party of Jesus showing its true colors time and time again.
