CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer asked Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.), one of the participants and a staunch enemy of President Obama’s health plans, what should be done if, for instance, a sick, 30-year-old man without health insurance suddenly became gravely ill.
“(And) he needs intensive care for six months. Who pays?,” Blitzer asked the congressman.
“That’s what freedom is all about,” Paul responded. “Taking your own risks.”
“But congressman, are you saying that society should just let him die?,” Blitzer insisted.
At this point the 1,000 Tea Party activists gathered at the Florida State Fairgrounds for the debate erupted in laughs and cheers: “Yeah! Yeah! Society should just let him die,” they gleefully said.
