GOP counter-attacks President's health care push


WASHINGTON (CNN)—Republicans launched a new counter-attack Saturday against the president’s push for health care reform.

Speaking on the Republican weekly radio and web address, Congresswoman Sue Myrick spoke about her own battle with cancer.

The North Carolinian representative said her diagnosis took six doctors, three mammograms and one ultrasound before her cancer was located. Myrick says the process took a few weeks, but would have taken far longer had she lived in a nation with government-run health care.

    What if this ungrateful, inconsiderate, Congresswoman didn't have health care like 10s of millions of Americans. Her care was handled quickly because she has a Cadillac policy, one which most can't afford, one which is funded by her government. These people are selfish and care about only "those that can". Sadly Congresswoman Myrick, there are millions "that can't".

    Uh excuse me ... She has government run health care. Sounds like her health care provider screwed up though ... they missed the ugly lying tumor between her ears.

    Where is her concern for the millions of Americans who do not have medical coverrage and are denied access to her gov't subsidized, "socialist" health care plan?? Where is her PROOF that this wouldn't have occured as quickly in other countries...whoops, I forgot...Republicans really don't care if they have proof or not!!

    At least, Myrick has health care. Good health care, too. But she would deny it to others.

    Another GOP hypocrite.
