Skip to comments.Justice Sonia Sotomayor's Shocking Ignorance
Posted on 03/31/2012 10:49:09 AM PDT by jazusamo
The liberal Supreme Court justices have demonstrated profound and shocking ignorance of the American health care system. Here's one of the most jarring examples:
"What percentage of the American people who took their son or daughter to an emergency room and that child was turned away because the parent didn't have insurance," asked Sotomayor, "... do you think there's a large percentage of the American population that would stand for the death of that child -- (who) had an allergic reaction and a simple shot would have saved the child?"
I have a precise answer for Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
The percentage of American people who took their son or daughter to an emergency room and were turned away because the parent didn't have insurance is exactly zero.
No person, whether American or not, is ever turned away from an emergency room for lack of health insurance. Ever.
This simply does not happen.
1. It's illegal.
It's disheartening to note that Justice Sonia Sotomayor, as profoundly ignorant as she is, will be making a monumental decision about a 2,700 page health care law. Justice Sotomayor needs to have a talk with her brother.

If she is a Wise Latina, I’d hate to see a stupid one.
Just wait for Obama’s next appointment, I guess. Or Mitt’s.
But...but...but the state run “media” said she was a wiseass latina that was smarter than a bunch of old white men.
Just illustrating once again that people that are in the Media should have to submit to the same standards that I do to own a firearm.
Well, the “poseur” known as the POTUS, nominated a featherweight to the SCOTUS in order to secure the latina vote in America. One affirmative action moron recognizes another one and put the Peter Principle into full gear. God help us if this idiot is reelected. Really, God help us.
This is a direct reflection on the turkey that nominated her.
” If she is a Wise Latina “
This statement alone should have disqualified her for SCOTUS...
How the hell did this woman get through law school?
No hospital can turn down a patient in dire need of care.
LOL. You have to wonder if the stupid one could find her butt with both hands.
Sotomayor and Kagen need to go before SCOTUS loses any credibility that it has left. It was a dumb idea to replace justices with a couple of commie lib activists with “compelling life stories”. Dumb! Really dumb.
Because the faculty at all law schools are just as stupid and out of touch about American reality as she is.
Nonsense...we all know that all oil company employees and health insurance workers and all physicians are evil (oh, and financial people too).
It's only liberals, lawyers and judges who are compassionate.
No hospital can turn down a patient with a case of the sniffles.
What’s “shocking” about it?
The Wise Latina was incompetent from the get-go
Truth has little to do with “The Narrative “.
Wise, but ignorant.
There’s no doubt liberals, lawyers and judges would have us think that, especially liberals which encompass the majority of the latter two.
Judging from the crowds at my local ER she must be the only Latina in the entire country who doesn’t know this.
