Right now Gourmandistan can afford one annual checkup

We have chickens, and we’re not opposed to getting rid of some of them. (Michelle is vigorously lobbying for quick dispatch of the horrid-looking Houdans.)

She looks even worse now

Now Sue Lowden, one of the current crop of crazy people masquerading as Republican candidates, thinks we should trade our chickens for health care—instead of demeaning ourselves with the just-passed health insurance reform.

From CBS News:

Sue Lowden, a Republican Senate hopeful in Nevada, has been widely mocked for earlier this week stating that, “before we all started having health care, in the olden days our grandparents, they would bring a chicken to the doctor, they would say I’ll paint your house.”

“I mean, that’s the old days of what people would do to get health care with your doctors,” she said. “Doctors are very sympathetic people. I’m not backing down from that system.”

Some nice people put together a website, letting you see just how many chickens you’ll need for your next MRI or major surgery. Sorry—our bald Houdans are spoken for.
