Annals of Contradiction

Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) met with constituents recently in Richmond:

Patricia Churchill relayed a story about a close family member who recently lost a high paying job and her health insurance. Churchill told Cantor that her relative was dying of stomach tumors and needs an operation as soon as possible. Cantor responded by suggesting that Churchill’s relative should seek “existing government programs” or find charity.

“Existing government programs”? This from a Republican who is opposed to a health reform bill with a public option?
