You know what I wonder whenever I read a story like this?
A man threw a temper tantrum and stabbed an employee at a pizza restaurant near Green Lake Wednesday evening when he was denied a free pizza, a police report said.
I wonder whether the victim has health insurance?
Maybe he does. I don't know. But probably not (at least, pre-Obamacare), because most fast food workers earn at or near minimum wage, and certainly don't earn enough to afford health insurance if it's not offered as a benefit of employment.
So some crazy person walks in and stabs you on the job, leaving you out of work (because, you know, you were stabbed) and with expensive medical bills (again, the stabbing thing), and tough luck. Because you made poor choices or something. Or whatever it is that righties tell themselves to justify their own lack of empathy.
That is the America—the one with $7.25 an hour jobs and no health insurance—that conservatives are fighting to conserve. Weird.
