... one starts to wonder if the country wouldn't be better off without them and if Republicans should be cut out of the health-care system entirely and simply provided with aspirin and hand sanitizer. Thirty-two percent of the population identifies with the GOP, and if we cut off health care to them, we could probably pay off the deficit in short order.

Replace 'Republican' with black and see what happens.
As long as they also let us NOT pay into the scam I am okay with his idea.
Why not make a trade?
We give up national health care and Democrats give up national defense?
Good luck defending yourselves Blue States!
His numbers for republicans is way off.
Stinking Marxist thug. And my tax dollars pay his salary.
Defund the Left. End taxpayer support of public broadcasting state media.
By what authority would anyone, including the government, be able to “cut off” health care to anyone, let alone “GOP”ers?
Many years ago, I enjoyed his radio show. Fortunately, his liberalism turned me off and I’ve been spared hearing or reading any of these sick words.
Lulz, libtards stuck on stupid.
The frakin idoitic morons have the majority in the House and Senate and can’t pass their beloved socialistic healthcare initiative. But yeah, please continue to blame the Repubs and make denial further en vogue among Libtards.
This dude just doesn’t get it does he? Even if we were all cut off, some of us would learn to become doctors and begin providing services to those denied. Come to think of it, this may not be a bad idea, having a separate health system for conservatives; I bet our insurance costs would plummet.
No, we’ll still be paying for it. They regard us as a disposable tax resource, less then human.
Every leftist government needs a scapegoat, a group to dehumanize.
I call for the genocide of Garrison.
Thirty-two percent of the population identifies with the GOP, and if we cut off health care to them, we could probably pay off the deficit in short order.
You would be cutting off the people who do the work.
Your deficit would skyrocket.
Go back to picking apples or whatever you think you do.
“...Republicans should be cut out of the health-care system entirely and simply provided with aspirin and hand sanitizer...”
Does that mean I am also cut out of having to pay for it? Then I’m in! I mean out.
I think most Republicans would be glad to decide how to spend their own money on their own healthcare. I’d opt for HSA and catastrophic insurance.
These people are idiots. Lets trade. Republicans don’t have to have government healthcare if they don’t have to pay for it.
Funny. That's all I heard throughout your entire diatribe against conservatives.
Could the government agency which determines if you have any nasty "Republican" tendencies which decides if you live or die be called a "Death Panel"?
Will Garrison Keillor be willing to personally use force up to and including killing any doctor or Republican who tries to have back alley chemotherapy?
What would the difference between people joining the Democrat Party to be able to get treatment and people joining the Communist Party to be able to get a job or an apartment in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union?
And they claim we're divisive, intolerant, and want to start a civil war.
I’d be all for giving republicans the option not to participate (pay into or receive benefits form) centralized healthcare, but of course, that’s not what he advocates, because like all marxists, the real goal is not really to provide for the people, but to steal from the collective individuals in order to promote the interests of the group... or in other words, spread the misery.
That, and give ‘em the two left coasts, and stay out of flyover country...
Do you think that is why they want us to get the H1N1 vaccine?
