Rick Santorum Solution to Health Crisis: Everyone Quit Buying iPads

News

OKAY guys Rick Santorum did not want to have to point out something quite so obvious and all, but he's just going to give it to America as super straight as the super straight microphone-sucker he is: the health care crisis is due to everyone purchasing iPads when they should be buying their medicines instead. Why would Americans consistently choose the latest Apple product over staying alive? Because everyone's priorities are just MESSED UP. (You can now add the ghost of Steve Jobs to the list of evil gay abortionist warrior heathens conspiring to ruin civilization.) Sure, Rick Santorum. So if everyone saves that $900 for medicine, everyone will then have health care, like in Canada?


OH THE ETERNAL MEWLING:

“People have no problem paying $900 for an iPad,” Santorum said, “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.”

Except that, in regards to the sick child whose mom Froth Face was lecturing:

The mother said the boy was on the drug Abilify, used to treat schizophrenia, and that, on paper, its costs would exceed $1 million each year.

Sure, BUT, if you want to ignore that point entirely and recite standard health care conglomerate PR release gibberish like you're campaigning for a job with a health care conglomerate when you inevitably drop out of the presidential campaign or something, hmmmm, instead, there's this rebuttal:

“He’s alive today because drug companies provide care,” Santorum said. “And if they didn’t think they could make money providing that drug, that drug wouldn’t be here. I sympathize with these compassionate cases. … I want your son to stay alive on much-needed drugs. Fact is, we need companies to have incentives to make drugs. If they don’t have incentives, they won’t make those drugs. We either believe in markets or we don’t.”

Yeah, see how it badly things worked out for health care in socialist CANADA? Everyone there is already dead. [ABC News]
