URBANDALE, Iowa -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Wednesday warned that President Obama's health reform law could result in the death of ill patients, relating the story of a cancer patient he met Tuesday at a campaign stop in Creston, Iowa.
"She came up to me and she said 'Governor, if you don't get rid of Obamacare, I'm dead," he recounted. "She said they will never take care of me. And that's a powerful testimony by that lady."
(Excuse me for injecting a moment of reality here. The Affordable Care Act won't change how anyone's cancer is treated. It'll just make sure that you can't lose your insurance because you've had cancer.)
