Here is a quote from a Republican senator:
Discussing health care outside the Supreme Court today, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) told ThinkProgress that there “shouldn’t” be a law requiring businesses to cover employees who have cancer because that would “create an obligation” for others. “When you create a right for somebody,” Johnson said, “you create an obligation for somebody else, and then you’re taking away that person’s right.”
And here is a very excellent point made in the comments section:
Funny how he says this about cancer patients, but probably would never say it about a pregnant teenager looking for an abortion…even though it’s the exact same thing.
I am so glad I am no longer associated with the craziness that has become the Republican party.
