Yet another shining example of someone telling the government to keep their hands out of their government-run healthcare.
Rebecca Kleefisch is the Republican candidate for Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin, and is running an ad telling about her fight with cancer. She says “thanks to the highest quality health care system in the world, I won my battle with cancer.” She then goes on in the same ad to accuse her Democratic opponent of supporting a government takeover of the health care system because he voted for Obama’s health insurance reform bill.
The only problem? Kleefisch’s health care is provided by the government. She has health care through her husband’s plan, who is a state representative. She somehow fails to mention this. (Or that her opponent has never supported a government takeover of the health care system. But let’s not worry about trivial things like reality.)
I guess she is going after the crowd who screams loudly that they want the government to keep their hands out of Medicare. Either that, or she is thinking “I already have my wonderful government-run health plan, I don’t want anyone else to have it.”
