“I am dying, doctor. What should be done?”
“Get better parents next time.”
Most everyone here has probably read of the “dying woman,” Kathy Stengl, who is confronting presidential candidates. The following is just one account:
[Mike Huckabee] greeted her. She told him of her diagnosis and a need to redirect health care spending.
“Actually, that’s what I did in Arkansas,” Huckabee said. “We started moving our whole state system toward prevention.”
Stangl asked what he would do as president to change the national health care system.
Huckabee responded that it must start with federal programs like Medicare and Medicaid.
The preacher did a bit better than Dr. Ron Paul might have done but not much. If Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (Lam) is a genetic disease, as suspected, the only prevention would be preventing the birth of those with the defect. Since Huckabee is a right-to-lifer, one might shudder at his proposal for prevention.
