    Didn't, but it could.
    Jury is out on that---he's clearly not a gun nut, but he is a homophobe and the comment about ACA being akin to slavery is off the hook.

    I think his anti-gay comments will torch any presidential aspirations worse than this insane but forgettable ACA kerfuffle. If he even has any.

    I'll just add that what I posted is just my opinion, maybe I'm wrong but we'll have to wait and see.

    We're talking about healthcare. Sorry but he's more expert than anyone in Congress. Thanks for playing.

    You have no proof he is a homophobe...not unless you think that anybody who believes that marriage is only to be between one man an one woman, the traditional marriage, is a homophobe... and that those who want to change that should just be allowed because they think its right...

    If you are against traditional marriage that makes you a heterophobe, does it?

    He compared homosexuality to bestiality and pedophilia. That's not a very intelligent viewpoint, especially coming from a doctor who should know better.
