MSNBC’s Krystal Ball: Conservatives Telling Young People to Die In Order to Hurt Obama

Co-host Krystal Ball on MSNBC’s The Cycle, September 24:

“The GOP is saying to young people, ‘We would like to have the government stick an unnecessary transvaginal probe in you if you want an abortion, but when it comes to health insurance, don’t take any government help. Don’t go to the state or federal government-operated insurance exchanges to buy private insurance. Stay away. Stay uninsured. Skip that pap smear. Skip that tetanus shot. Skip that prenatal care. Skip that cholesterol test. And if you die an agonizing and unnecessary death, one that could have been prevented by the health insurance reform that bears the President’s name, at least you know your death will have not been in vain. You will have died to serve the noble and patriotic cause not of conservatism, but of hurting this President and denying him a victory.’...They would sacrifice the lives of young people if it helped them score political points. That is not conservative. It is a national disgrace.”
