Meet Sue Lowden, Republican hopeful for majority leader Senator Harry Reid’s seat in Nevada. Sue has a great soultions for paying for your health care, “You know, before we all started having health care, in the olden days our grandparents, they would bring a chicken to the doctor, they would say I’ll paint your house,” she said. “I mean, that’s the old days of what people would do to get health care with your doctors. Doctors are very sympathetic people. I’m not backing down from that system.”
Rachel Maddow‘s response was the best, “OK. If you pay your doctor and nurse in chickens, do we expect that they will in turn be able to go pay for electricity and equipment and their rent also with chickens? Can people donate chickens to Sue Lowden right now or to John Ensign? He might actually need them more.
Fundraising dinner ticket? One cup of sugar. A meeting in the candidate‘s office? One prime heifer. An autographed picture? That will cost you one bushel of wheat. Guaranteed opposition to financial reform? Six pairs of tube socks, please.
If she‘s elected, imagine what Sue Lowden could do for the tax code. Imagine what she could do for the budget. Good news, we don‘t owe China any money anymore but everyone needs to come up with their weight in butter, OK? Fast.”
