A candidate for the the United States Senate from Nevada (she hopes to run against Harry Reid) had this to say about her plans for health care reform.
“Let’s change the system and talk about what the possibilities are. I’m telling you that this works. You know, before we all started having health care, in the olden days, our grandparents, they would bring a chicken to the doctor. They would say I’ll
paint your house. [That’s] what people would do to get health care with their doctors. Doctors are very sympathetic people. I’m not backing down from that system.”
— Sue Lowden (R), the front-running challenger to Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), in an interview on Nevada Newsmakers suggesting that health care could be paid for using the barter system.
P.S. A good insurance plan will out-perform a good chicken every day of the week.
