GOP lawmaker says ‘no one dies’ from lack of health care Empty GOP lawmaker says ‘no one dies’ from lack of health care

Voters attending a packed town hall in Idaho booed and shouted down their Republican congressman after he attempted to defend the House passing a replacement for Obamacare by telling the crowd “no one’ in the US dies from lack of health care. Appearing less than 24 hours after the GOP-dominated House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act (AHCA), Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) was on the receiving end of complaints from the audience and at one time admonished them to stop being rude, reports the Idaho Statesman.

At the town hall at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho, Labrador was confronted by a woman who told the lawmaker that she feared the loss of health care protection under Medicaid would result in deaths.

“That line is so indefensible,” Labrador said. “Nobody dies because they don’t have access to health care.”

Labrador’s comment was immediately shouted down by the crowd.

Being booed at town halls is not something new for Labrador who received similar treatment in April when he told a town hall audience that he doesn’t believe health care is a “basic human right.”

GOP lawmaker says ‘no one dies’ from lack of health care 3893789544         Just more proof of how badly the Trump-rump of the GOP lies so easily...

People like this Labrador don't even believe in the concept of "human rights"..

Turds like like him only believe in one religion -- their insatiable greed for the unholy dollar --  and yearn for those 'good ol' days',  when human lives could be bought and sold like cattle.

After this vote (a rousing four-vote victory, by the way), my sister e-mailed our representative with this message, reading in its entirety:

"Please let me know when and where your next town hall meeting will be."

I was so proud.

It's an interesting statement. I'd like to know more about his reasoning.
