After reporting on a story about two men that got themselves intentionally arrested in order to have access to life-saving health care, Thom Hartmann sheds his generally cool demeanor and goes off on smug libertarian, Austin Peterson. Hey, Austin, if you don’t want to pay your fair share to live in a civilized society, then “go Galt” already, jerk!
From YouTube: Austin Petersen, FreedomWorks.com, joins Thom Hartmann. What part of “right to life” don’t libertarians understand? Only in America would someone have to threaten to kill the President in order to get life-saving healthcare. Isn’t it time we made healthcare a basic human right so sick Americans don’t have to take such drastic measures?
