Representative Marie Antoinette

Sometimes I think Republicans don't hear how heartless their comments sound. Yesterday Representative Jason Chaffetz of Utah said that if people thought insurance would now cost too much (after implementation of Republican Obamacare replace plan), "maybe they shouldn't buy that new iPhone and use that money for insurance instead."

In 1789 France, that sort of comment got Marie Antoinette beheaded. ("Let them eat cake!")

Feel free to ignore my advice, but it won't kill you to display a whiff of compassion toward your fellow man.
