House Speaker Paul Ryan likes to talk about freedom. In his mind freedom is the right to go without health insurance if you cannot afford it. That kills people. The WaPo has the story from McDowell county West Virginia. Itg describes Keisha McNew who works in a clinic. It also talks about her brother Derrick..

See, you cannot diagnose cancer in an ER. It needs a physician. And if you don't have insurance you can only go to the ER.
Paul Ryan says he is interested in helping low income people. He has taken tours of low income areas in order to learn how to help them. Apparently he has learned nothing, not surprising in a man so odious as to deny health care to people in order to fund tax cuts for the wealthy. What can we say about people like Paul Ryan? Pretty clear, they just don't give a damn about anyone other than their wealthy supporters. And people die.
