Nevada GOP Senatorial candidate Sue Lowden has a great new plan for folks like me concerned about their medical bills: chicken.
As Steve Benen summarizes it,
To briefly review, Lowden, the favorite to beat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) in Nevada this year, recently encouraged voters to “barter with your doctor.” On Monday, Lowden reiterated and expanded upon this, praising a health care delivery system in line with “the olden days” when those seeking medical care “would bring a chicken to the doctor.” Despite the mockery this had already received, she added, “I'm not backing down from that system.”
The mockery is now in full swing. Here's an example: Sue Lowden's plan to pay for health care? “Bring a chicken to the doctor”
The folks at the hospital seemed very nice, but I don't think that turning up with, say, 2000 chickens would win me many friends or much of a discount.
