Following the Tea Party Logic
Dear Tea Party Voter: I hope that when your grandchild, God forbid, needs emergency surgery, that the hospital decides to put him in the operating theater with a conservative white doctor who votes no on every procedure, and won't sterilize his equipment because the government shouldn't tell him how to run his small business. It's totally okay, because he bases his decisions on "common sense principles" and a repeal of "government run healthcare."
Yeah, that's much better than a well-educated Hawaiian doctor who wants your grandkid to get well as soon as possible, even if it means he has to follow government regulations regarding sanitary operating procedures.
Oh. Your grandchild doesn't have insurance, does he? And has a pre-existing condition? Nevermind.
