Scary Santorum

“The answer is not what can we do to prevent deaths because of a lack of health insurance. There’s?—?I reject that number completely, that people die in America because of lack of health insurance,” Santorum said to a crowd of 100. Link

It’s bad enough that a Presidential candidate says that, it’s worse if he believes it and it’s truly amazing that many people in the USA actually believe that.
