First there was Sue Lowden, a Republican Senate candidate from Nevada, who suggested we should get health care by bartering stuff like chickens. And then the world met Tennessee State Rep. Mike Bell, who suggested paying in vegetables -- to the wonderful amazement of Rep. Joe Towns. To which Dr. Maddow says:
You know, if you combine the currency proposed to pay for medical care by Republican Sue Lowden and Republican Mike Bell, you are halfway to making a very nice chicken soup. Which would probably do more to cure what ails you than trying to convince Kaiser Permanente to accept some gingersnaps in exchange for your echocardiogram.
