How Dumb Can Rudy Get?
Our friend Paddy put a post up earlier about how Rudy Giuliani has a case of the stupids, in that he hides behind being Mayor of New York on 9/11, and yet still doesn't seem to understand who the Sunnis and Shia are, what the difference is, which group's extremist formed into Al Qaeda, etc. and so forth.
Well it seems Steve has caught Rudy lacking a basic understanding of our healthcare system:
“I don’t like mandates,” Giuliani says. “I don’t like mandating health care. I don’t like it because it erodes what makes health care work in this country — the free market, the profit motive. A mandate takes choice away from people. We’ve got to let people make choices. We’ve got to let them take the risk–do they want to be covered? Do they want health insurance? Because ultimately, if they don’t, well, then, they may not be taken care of. I suppose that’s difficult.” He lets the idea sink in, though it seems to bother his audience not at all. “The minute you start mandating, you always end up with more expensive government programs.”Seriously, does this freakin make sense to anyone? Does this moron read the paper in the morning before he decides who he wants his next wife to be?
