'Small Government Has Never Gotten Anybody Any Health Care'

 

Without big government, Americans are nossink, nossink—do you hear me!?

On his MSNBC show this evening, Ed Schultz bellowed that "small government has never gotten anybody any health care."  Got that, you weak, dependent Americans?  You are incapable of getting anything done for yourself.  Only big government can save you.

Here's how Schultz denigrated the ability of Americans to fend for themselves.
ED SCHULTZ: After a year of olive branches, the President is fresh out of patience. He's put up with the right-wing lies long enough. The Republicans have a choice: lead, follow or get the hell out of the way.  Small government has never gotten anybody any health care in this country.  We have people in need and they need to be helped.
Ed, if government would get the hell out of the way, many more Americans could, and would, be happy to take care of themselves and help those who are truly in need.
