Wisconsin Republican lieutenant governor candidate Rebecca Kleefisch, diagnosed with cancer a month ago, touts the treatments she received under her state-subsidized insurance plan at the same time she rails against government-run health care in a new television ad.
Not taking a side in the socialized vs. private health care debate but this is just stupid. If you are receiving medical care due to a government-run program — medicare, medicaid, or other programs — then don’t be stupid enough to criticize the very program you depend on. If you think it shouldn’t exist, then do the honorable thing, the ethical thing, and pay your own medical expenses. In short, don’t be a twit.
