Congressman: ‘Nobody Dies’ From Lack Of Healthcare


REPRESENTATIVE RAUL LABRADOR
IS A VERY GOOD SERVANT OF THE DONOR CLASS. HE WOULD CLAIM HE’S
VERY CONSERVATIVE — SURE, WHATEVER GETS YOU THROUGH THE
NIGHT. HE’S ONE OF THE GUYS DEFENDING THIS HEALTHCARE
PROPOSAL OF REPUBLICANS IN THE HOUSE, HE’S ONE OF THE GUYS WHO
DROVE IT TO BE MORE CONSERVATIVE. RIGHT NOW IT HAS
$765 BILLION IN TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH, WHAT A WONDERFUL
COINCIDENCE. IT ALSO CUTS $800 BILLION FOR MEDICAID. ACCORDING
TO THE LAST ESTIMATE OF THE LESS DRACONIAN PLAN IT CUTS 24
MILLION PEOPLE FROM THE HEALTHCARE ROLLS, 24 MILLION
AMERICANS WON’T HAVE HEALTHCARE ANYMORE. BUT HE DOESN’T WORK FOR
THE RICH, HE BELIEVES IN FREEDOM. THE FREEDOM OF YOU
GOING TO DIE WHEREVER YOU DIE WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE INSURANCE,
HE DOESN’T CARE ABOUT YOU, AND THE FREEDOM TO TAKE BIG CHECKS
FOR MY DONORS. I WONDER WHAT KIND OF DOG WORKS IN THIS
FASHION? A LOYAL ONE, PROBABLY. A DONOR’S BEST FRIEND. HIS
CONSTITUENTS ARE NOT AWFULLY HAPPY ABOUT THIS BECAUSE SOME OF
THEM WILL LOSE THEIR HEALTHCARE, AND THEY KIND OF LIKE MEDICAID. A LOT OF PEOPLE DO. THEY ASKED HIM ABOUT IT, AND IT
DIDN’T GO WELL FOR LABRADOR.>>YOU ARE MANDATING PEOPLE ON
MEDICAID EXCEPT DYING, YOU ARE MAKING –>>THAT LINE IS SO INDEFENSIBLE. NOBODY DIES BECAUSE THEY DON’T
HAVE ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE.>>[YELLING]>>DID YOU HEAR THAT? NOBODY DIES
BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE. I’M PRETTY SURE
THAT’S NOT TRUE. LIKE, THEY’VE GOTTEN SO USED TO LYING THAT
IT’S LIKE, WHATEVER, WHAT DID THE KOCH BROTHERS TELL ME TO
SAY? HEALTHCARE, NOBODY NEEDS IT. IF YOU DON’T GET HEALTHCARE
YOU WILL BE FINE. I WILL GIVE YOU FACTS HERE EVEN THOUGH IT’S
OBVIOUS ON ITS FACE WHAT A BRAZEN LIAR LABRADOR IS –>> THAT’S WHY THEY ATTACK
ACADEMIA, BECAUSE THEY BRING YOU FACTS. THEY ARE LIKE, FACTS ARE
SO BIASED, DON’T LISTEN TO SCIENTISTS OR THE MEDIA OR
JOURNALISTS, LISTEN TO ME. NOBODY EVER DIED FROM NOT HAVING
HEALTHCARE –>> WHAT A WONDERFUL COINCIDENCE. AND THEY EXPLAIN –>>SO EVEN IF YOU WERE TO GIVE
ALL OF THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT TO OUR GOOD FRIEND LABRADOR HERE
AND SAID GOOD BOY, YOU ARE RIGHT, YOU CAN GO TO EMERGENCY
ROOMS — THAT IS THE BIG EXCUSE FOR THE REPUBLICANS — OKAY,
YES, IF YOU BREAK YOUR ANKLE YOU CAN GO TO AN EMERGENCY ROOM, BY
THE WAY GOOD LUCK TO YOU, IT WOULD PROBABLY BANKRUPT THE
AVERAGE AMERICAN — THAT’S IN A BROKEN ANKLE SITUATION. WHAT IF
YOU HAVE CANCER? YOU CAN’T GET TREATMENTS AT THE EMERGENCY
ROOM, BUT RIGHT BEFORE YOU DIE OF ALL THE TUMORS YOU COULD SHOW
UP AT THE EMERGENCY ROOM AND THEY WILL DECLARE YOU DID. EVER
DIED FROM LACK OF ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE. IF YOU HAVEN’T
FIGURED OUT HOW DRACONIAN THE REPUBLICANS ARE, HOW BARBARIC
THEY ARE, AND HOW LITTLE THEY CARE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR
HEALTHCARE, YOU’RE JUST NOT PAYING ATTENTION. OR YOU ARE ONE
OF THEIR BIG DONORS WHO THINK, I WILL BUY PUT THE OF HEALTHCARE
WITH THE $765 BILLION IN TAX CUTS THEY JUST GAVE ME. WARREN BUFFETT CAME OUT TODAY AND SAID WHY ARE THEY GIVING ALL
THESE TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH? ONE BUFFETT CAME OUT TODAY AND SAID
I DON’T NEED THIS, WE NEED TO FIX OUR HEALTH CARE BECAUSE
THAT’S WHAT IS SLOWING THE ECONOMY DOWN. IF YOU CARED ABOUT
THE ECONOMY WOULD FIX OUR HEALTHCARE AND NOT DESTROY IT
JUST TO GIVE TAX CUTS TO THE RICH. BUT LABRADOR DOESN’T HAVE
A MIND OF HIS OWN, HE’S A GOOD LITTLE BOY WHO SERVES HIS DONOR
CLASS.

  1. He just filled all the campaign finance forms he needs to file to run for governor. Somebody stop the world, I wanna' get off.

  2. We spent Six trillion dollars on the war in Iraq!! If we spent that money on healthcare they say every American would be covered for a hundred years. They spent an ungodly amount of money on a fake war and still continue to cut money on the poor.

  3. My favorite auto mechanic died of internal bleeding at home at age 61. He went to the Emergency Room several times and the attending physicians (Interns) failed to diagnose

  4. So why do we need healthcare at all when nobody dies because from lack of it? What do we need hospitals and doctors for? Or any sort of medication?

    That man needs the be tared and feathered!

  5. am from Africa and am in awe of how stupid Americans are. What did u guys expect when u voted for trump

  6. "That line is so indefensible..". He should've rephrased that to "This line (I'm about to say) is so indefensible..". It's not even what I can call ironic, there has to be a new term for what just happened there. 1:36 is the sound of someone who just kicked away their potential votes.

  7. the american healthcare system is so absurd to me, if an american twist their ankle they go bankrupt, i didn't have to pay a dime when i sprained my ankle, not when i got x-rayed, not when i got en evaluation from the doctor and a nurse, not for the bandages they put on it, not even for the mighty fine crunches that i think might still be in my basement, they never asked for them back. I just had to tell them my person number and it's all free except for the cab.
    my mom's a doctor and atm she's complaining all the time because they're getting a new computer system to deal with patients. The problem is that it's and american system and it's made to log down every single tiny expense from getting in IV to a band-aid to how many times the nurse was called to how many hours and minutes they were in a bed, all so the hospital can print it all out on a bill the patient has to pay for from their own pocket. Of course we still don't have to pay, they just want to log the expenses to see where they can save and improve the system, but it scares me so much to think about how it must feel to be an american without a health insurance who gets put in the hospital and is trapped there knowing the bill is getting longer and longer by the minute.

  8. this is embarrassing .. what an insane man .. people die everyday from lack of health insurance .. what is he talking about???!!!

  9. "We have an incredible health care plan." – Donald J. Trump.
    Synonyms for incredible – adj beyond belief:
    Absurd, improbable, inconceivable, preposterous, ridiculous, unbelievable, unimaginable, far-fetched, fishy, flimsy, implausible, impossible, out of the question, outlandish, phony, questionable, suspect, thin, unconvincing, unsubstantial, untenable, unthinkable.
    Thank you Dictionary.com.

  10. No one dies from having lack of health care. They die because of lack of money given to them for their hospital/ medical needs.

  11. i'm not surprise at all .. america have always been the place where people love to bullshit one another. it all comes down to who's better at it.

  12. All they had to do was appeal to white racism to get white folk to cut off their own health care, to fund huge tax cuts for the top wealthy 1%.

    You can get anything from white folk by simply demonising other races. Same thing happened with ''the Wall''. Many Trump voters now have their homes under threat of govt takeover to make way for the Wall, and they are up in arms about it. Foolish people.

  13. The next day when he realized that he had made a mistake he clarified by saying the law requires that hospitals help you and they are not changing that law. So by his logic people without healthcare should just go to the hospital…because waiting until you are deathly ill to get emergency care at a hospital is efficient. :/ I am totally disgusted by the callousness of this man and many of his colleagues who believe healthcare is a privledge afforded to the rich.

  14. So, you're saying he walked away on his own two feet from that meeting??? US deserves what they're getting….

  15. ya if you dont have insurance and break your leg . The best option ya got is to jump into your car , crash into some building, and call your car insurance so they pay for everything lol

  16. I think what he meant was that no-one, nobody would die in the emergency room for lack of healthcare. Neverthelessl, this ass-wipe needs to be FIRED by the voters.

  17. Well I guess that's true but it's kinda like saying nobody has ever killed someone with a gun because it was the bullet that did it.

  18. This inhuman lying moron is so goddamned stupid someone else has to hold his pee pee in the lavatory or he wets his pants or maybe he just leans over and drinks. What voted this thing into office? Find them and give them to starving sharks. Dumb fucks.

  19. Wait, Warren Buffet said he didnt need a tax cut?… Is he one of those precious few legitimately decent rich people?

  20. In that case, he can ban himself and his family from ever getting health care of any type for the rest of their lives.

  21. Bullets don't kill people, hemorrhage and blood loss do! You hear that murderers? You're clear! It's never your fault! – Rep. Labrodor logic.

  22. Reminds of some video I heard someone make a joke that when you get shot in the head it's not the gun or bullet that killed you it's the oxygen getting inside your brain that does, or something along those lines.

  23. Im glad the crowd did not let the congressman get away with that lie "No one dies from lack of healthcare"
    Hopefully 2018 we can get rid of these idiots in congress. Im definitely gonna be voting in 2018.
    Berniecrats 2018

  24. Congressman more likely means that only the nobodies will die, while the wealthy and powerful will live with even more money.

  25. I heard nobody dies from a bullet in the brain. Maybe Rep. Raul R. Labrador should test this claim and help us all find out.

  26. yeah of course no one with insane amounts of money is hurt from they're lack of health care, oh what ever were we worried about?

  27. Let's take his health care and see whether his theory works also cut his paycheck for 30 cents for every constituent a law he passes helps.

  28. What is particularly disturbing here is the almost total ignorance of social topics and information by these Republicans that seems to be entirely moulded by politics. They seem to actually believe the stupidity they spew, and that's the upside. The downside is they actually know they are lying and just don't fuckin' care.

  29. It's not driving 200 miles per hour swerving through traffic that kills you, its running your car off the bridge at 200 and smashing into the ground that kills you.

  30. So let's take Labrador's health insurance away for for about ten years or so, and see how confident he is without it.

  31. When trumptards get cancer at the center of their assholes, they will learn their mistake.

    Bottom line; If we cant save 40k people from dying every year from preventable diseases, then we are a truly a pathetic nation, and the opposite of one that is 'free'.

  32. These are the sort of signs of a dying govt, further inequity, less social services, More money in the rich's pocket, less in the poor's. that's how the R-party works. The strong Christians get hooked on the abortion issue, then the party is down on social services and helping the poor, which goes against the teachings of Jesus Christ. Hypocritical. Abortion should never be a presidential platform. It is up to the supreme courts and lawmakers within individual states/counties to change such things. Poor Christians at least need to realize this and that presidentially defunding abortions by defunding planned parenthood, also defunds the other services they provide which are not abortion related. I would be fine with taking away funding strictly from abortion and letting it be user supported, yet defunding planned parenthood entirely is the result of propaganda from the church or R-party telling voters anything they can to get their way, even if it means hurting people and society as a whole. When the needs of the few outweigh the many, gameover. Restart. Install Revolution 2.0

  33. Just read he's running for governor. This may be the best shot Dems have of winning if Labrador gets the nomination.

  34. When this clown has his first heart attack or stroke, I want the medics to pack up their stuff, end the treatment and leave…. and on their way out tell this animal to his face: "C'mon, what are ya whining about? Nobody dies because they don't get healthcare!"

  35. My mother died from lack of access to health care— 4 kids, single mom, worked over 40 hours a week and couldn't afford insurance or a doctor– she died at age 50 from breast cancer.

  36. Just a thought, if all the poor people die there'll be fewer people to vote against him! Wonder if he's had the same idea? Possible Trump and the GOP will kill more US citizens by this change to health care, than al-Assad and the Ba'ath party will kill Syrian citizens with bombs.

  37. death panels the GOP lead by Paul Ryan has sold their soul to the insurance companies the Republicans were right about one thing when it comes to Obamacare it would lead to death panels you just had to wait for them to get in power thank you GOP

  38. …..how did the shills of trump and Corporate America induce the catatonic state of the morons to vote for these shysters. ?????
    …………..it's strangely strange that they can get the trumpfodder to actually VOTE against their best interests. ………

  40. Amazing to watch someone kill their own career so publicly. He just gave his opponent in the next election their main campaign ad.

  41. Essentially the Congressman may be correct to say "nobody dies from lack of Healthcare", but that would be true should Trumpcare NOT get passed, because of our current healthcare system people are not dying. It will be first time for everything, under Trumpcare, people will be dying, and it is the result of the lack of healthcare (look at the contents of its proposal where it would list what is not included in its bill).

  42. I feel like he was going to continue with "People get treatment, then get billed", which is true.

    What he isn't considering is non-emergency, life saving procedures.

  43. a Congress person would never take a bribes from the health industry that would screw over the people of America just for more profits to a few stockholders.

  44. Somebody DID die recently – a little girl who's parents couldn't afford healthcare. I think it was 2 or 3 weeks ago, remember? Her parents were devastated.

  45. trump is a racist, bigoted, sexist pig. He cares about no one but himself. Ignorant ass holes put him in office.

  46. This will screw everyone and which sick how people can play with people's live. Hopefully, before a crisis of death happen where I can't wait for people to start rioting and complain to the government and the congress until they make the change this help benefit the country and save much life.

  47. Congressman must be joking, like the old well known: nobody dies from a thousand foot fall, it's the sudden stop that's the problem or can't die from falling off a 300" tall tower if only are 3" off the ground when you fall.

  48. Nobody dies because they don't have access to health care!?
    ——————-
    It's bad enough the SOB made up a bold heartless lie like this, but to tell the woman that her statement is indefensible when she said people need healthcare or they could die is beyond cold and callous!

  49. Yay warren buffet too bad all the rich don't think like he does maybe collectively we would get things done we have to get trump out of office

  50. More sad than angry now because this stupid comment made me wanna cry … Yes, diseases or accidents kill people technically, but isn't it what the medicine is for? A little help can save so many lives from totally curable conditions, and they will definitely continue working for the rich and pay taxes for the rest of their lives, if you need a worthy reason for your donors. Does these politicians know there are people who just can't afford to see a doctors?

  51. Coming from a guy who has all the healthcare and benefits from his government job. Wow America – you are so behind all the rest of your allies. In Canada, I break my ankle, I hobble away with no bill. Cancer. All the treatment possible – free. Are we perfect – no. Canada does not have universal drug coverage, but it is a topic of debate. In the USA, you are going backwards on healthcare. The higher taxes we pay as Canadians for health coverage and peace of mind is so worth it.

  52. I am from idaho and I hate the fact that we are a republican state these guys are for the rich screw the poor but they need ALL THEIR PERKS LIKE NEW CARS supplied to them and all the other under the table payoffs

  53. Consider…. every one of these (top) politicians are fully aware… Israeli leaders such as Ariel Sharon and Benjamin Netanyahu seriously and confidently confess, 'ISRAEL CONTROLS AMERICA'. Yet when the AH Benjamin Netanyahu shagged his hairy ass recently in front of the US Senate Chambers, every (Rothschild) BITCH rose and applauded the AH.

  54. I'd like to take a crap rite in this ass scabs mouth…lying twat. take your traitorous anti-American fat ass back to whatever s-hole country ur 'people' came from…don't like it here, get the f gone…

  55. I think if your not for are older people ,Then you need to pack your rich bags get out and let's fine someone who will stand up for are older Americans and handicap, veterans.

  56. Sure! But they do die form trying to pay off their healthcare Bill Mr dumb dumb! This is the quality of people thats going to represent you this game of Politics and healthcare. In other countries around the world 1st world and even 3rd world countries Health Care is FREE Yes FREE!!!!!
