Honestly, I'm not even sure something like that would even work these days. They'd just spin it that the baby was an unproductive member of society and thus deserved to die, or that it would grow up and eventually STEAL YOUR JOBS! or something equally insane.
I find this particularly disturbing, since I'm basically the exact person described in this scenario. I'm 30, I've got a good job at the moment, but it doesn't provide healthcare. I was covered under my parents plan until I turned 26. When that ended, I bought an individual plan, but they were particularly reluctant to cover me, since I'd had the gall to develop asthma when I was 7. Sorry, dick move on my part, I know.
Anyways, within a year my premium had almost doubled, despite me not using the plan at all except to get inhalers, and we're not even talking serious meds here. Basic albuterol, which costs about 40 bucks on their own, and my copay was 20 dollars. So essentially, I was paying 300 dollars a month for a 40 dollar inhaler.
Over the years, I tried to find employment that would give me some form of benefits, but was unsuccessful on that front. Employment, I could find. Employment with health benefits? Ha, yeah right. Eventually, I took a temporary job in another state, and was unceremoniously dropped from my plan, saying I should seek insurance in that state. I tried to explain it was a temporary situation, but it fell on deaf ears and, oh yeah, you owe us a bunch of money.
Now I find myself in a decent job, in a better financial situation, but it's a freelance position for a very small company so again, no benefits. Not even sure if I could get individual coverage now, and I'm somewhat reluctant to even find out, considering my previous experience. Didn't mean to vent/write so much, but this attitude from the tea partiers pisses me off and is completely detached from the reality for many people. Ah well, guess I should just fuck off and die.
