Remind me again...

...why anyone with a brain would vote for John McCain for any office higher than Secretary of the local Kiwanis? Or for any other Republican, for that matter? Once again we see the modern GOP's utter contempt for the American people (at least for those who make less than $5 million a year...):

Mr. Goodman, who helped craft Sen. John McCain’s health care policy, said anyone with access to an emergency room effectively has insurance, albeit the government acts as the payer of last resort. (Hospital emergency rooms by law cannot turn away a patient in need of immediate care.)

“So I have a solution. And it will cost not one thin dime,” Mr. Goodman said. “The next president of the United States should sign an executive order requiring the Census Bureau to cease and desist from describing any American – even illegal aliens – as uninsured. Instead, the bureau should categorize people according to the likely source of payment should they need care. “So, there you have it. Voila! Problem solved.”
So, just as Ronald Reagan sought to eradicate hunger by declaring Ketchup to be a vegetable, Mr. Goodman (his very name is an oxymoron) would solve the health care crisis by declaring everyone to be insured. Why stop there? Why not just declare everyone healthy because they're not dead yet? Then you can deny them access to the ER as well!

Honestly, words fail me in attempting to describe the depths of dishonesty and inhumanity to which Rethugs will sink in their endless lust for money and power. They truly suck beyond belief. To hell with all of them, and the sooner the better.
