Dana Milbank on yesterday’s spectacle at the Capitol:
More ominously, a man standing just beyond the TV cameras apparently suffered a heart attack 20 minutes after event began. Medical personnel from the Capitol physician’s office — an entity that could, quite accurately, be labeled government-run health care — rushed over, attaching electrodes to his chest and giving him oxygen and an IV drip.
By the time it was over, medics had administered government-run health care to at least five people in the crowd who were stricken as they denounced government-run health care.
It drives me nuts that ill-informed, easily manipulated people are being whipped up into a frenzy to rally against their own best interests.
