http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/0...?ncid=webmail1Texas Governor Rick Perry says he was "taken aback" by an incident that occurred at Monday night's Republican presidential debate after U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) was asked if a man who is sick should be left to die because he is uninsured,according to NBC News.
In addressing the situation that unfolded Perryreportedly said, "We're the party of life." HuffPost's Sam Stein reports on the incident:
What do you tell a guy who is sick, goes into a coma and doesn't have health insurance? Who pays for his coverage? "Are you saying society should just let him die?" Wolf Blitzer asked."Yeah!" several members of the crowd yelled out.
Apparently Perry didn't get the memo. Many of the right wing republicans and Tea Party folks proclaim themselves the "Party of Life". They spend much of their time trying to change abortion laws and clamoring they are the protectors of sacred lives. But of course once babies are born, they no longer give a damn.
Compassionate conservatism on display here. At its finest.
