Mike Huckabee is a fundogelical former governor of Arkansas running for the Republican Presidential nomination. He’s also a sick, stupid s.o.b. Here’s his take on barring insurance companies from refusing people with pre-existing conditions.
"It sounds so good, and it’s such a warm message to say we’re not gonna deny anyone from a preexisting condition," Huckabee explained at the Value Voters Summit today. "Look, I think that sounds terrific, but I want to ask you something from a common sense perspective. Suppose we applied that principle [to] our property insurance. And you can call your insurance agent and say, "I’d like to buy some insurance for my house." He’d say, "Tell me about your house." "Well sir, it burned down yesterday, but I’d like to insure it today." And he’ll say "I’m sorry, but we can’t insure it after it’s already burned." Well, no preexisting conditions."
Pre-existing condition? Tough shit, and don’t let the hospital door hit you in the ass on the way out to the street where you can die.
Pre-existing condition? You had acne when you were thirteen and didn’t tell us about it. Tough shit. No insurance for you. Go die somewhere where we can’t see you.
Hey, Huckabee, people aren’t houses, you fucking Christian dimwit asshole moron. And they aren’t property either, you piece of crap.
And note that his view is the view of the Republicans, the Party of No, the Party of Screw the People, the Party of Help the Rich, the Party of Sociopaths, Idiots, and Incompetents.
The Republican way, perfectly exemplified. And these are the sick bastards the polls say the electorate wants to put back in control? That’s not putting the fox in charge of the henhouse, that’s blowing up the whole goddam farm.
