This is very disappointing

and deserves to be addressed. Cenk is usually very supportive of many of RP's positions and what really upsets me about him in this clip is that he has everything WRONG.

That was NOT RP's response.
Kent did NOT DIE because of LACK of medical care.
Kent was NOT DENIED any medical care.
The bills did NOT go to his mother but rather against his estate.
Ron Paul did NOT say "tough luck" but rather that there are other options than government that could HANDLE MEDICAL CARE BETTER. AND that the GOVERNMENT is responsible for the rising costs of medical care.

So disappointing that Cenk decided to get lazy on this story.
