Mary Pilcher Cook, Scott Schwab would rather people get sick than lose their ‘freedom’
A cabal of Republicans in the Kansas Legislature have grown desperate in their effort to prevent 280,000 of the state’s citizens from getting health insurance.
Sen. “Mean Mary” Pilcher Cook of Shawnee and Rep. Scott “Dopey” Schwab of Olathe are among those pushing the Kansas Health Care Freedom Amendment, a document full of disingenuously patriotic sounding gibberish that would supposedly protect Kansans from being subjected to the tyranny of health insurance.
But with the possibility that Congress might actually pass federal health-care
reform legislation this weekend, Pilcher Cook and her
fellow travelers announced the launch of a Web site dedicated to fighting it in Kansas.
