Gawker is attacking Dr. Paul again. I have to admit that I don't know anything about this event, but it probably bears a response in the comments.
"...So Blitzer pressed on, asking if he meant that "society should just let him die," which earned a chilling round of approving hoots from the crowd. Paul would not concede that much outright, instead responding...it was up to churches to care for the dying young man. So basically, yeah. He'd let him die.
SFGate - Rep. Ron Paul Sparks Sensation at CA GOP Convention, Says Media Misreported Tea Party Cheering on Uninsured (VIDEO)Submitted by rp311 on Sat, 09/17/2011 - 19:46
Los Angeles — Presidential candidate Texas Rep. Ron Paul – followed by cheering crowds at the California State GOP convention today — said the media “twisted” the Tea Party reaction at the last presidential debate, and argued that the conservative position on health care is both Constitutionally sound and ”compassionate.”
We asked Paul after his speech to the Lincoln Club whether health care or welfare are appropriate expenditures of the federal government. “Follow the Constititution,” he said repeatedly.
2012 Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul's 2008 campaign manager Kent Snyder died bankrupt at the age of 49 because he couldn't get health insurance due to a pre-existing condition. The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur explains.
I think that everyone aspires to be a caring person, to be concerned with the well-being of their neighbors, and to be gracious with their talents and treasure. I struggle with this at times, but I am trying to improve my ability to identify those truly in need and lend an outstretched hand. Kent is one example of this. I did not know Kent personally, but the news of his death was very saddening to the community of people who support Ron Paul and who were proud of Kent's untiring efforts in support of the cause of liberty.
Yahoo News is framing it so that it looks like Ron Paul wants the uninsured to die. In order to find out what Ron Paul really said (and it was a great answer that anyone can understand) you have to dig through many videos.
Yahoo is among the worst of the worst when it comes to anti-liberty propaganda.
