Yet another cunning plan

Mike Huckabee, between prayers and gastro-bypass defying sausage gravy, recently suggested how Republicans could defeast "Obama-care" but good.
Mike Huckabee is so fed up with hearing President Obama claim that the Republicans have made preventing people “from getting health care their holy grail,” he is calling on the GOP to adopt an innovative solution to solving the nation’s health care crisis: cure cancer!
Cure cancer? Who ever thought of ever trying to do that...other than everyone. Except these guys:
Making good on election promises to reduce federal spending, the Republican-led House of Representatives recently approved a spending package (H.R. 1) that contains massive reductions in discretionary spending for the remainder of the current fiscal year 2011, which will expire Sept. 30...approximately $640 million is proposed as a “general reduction to 2008 levels,” and would directly impact the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
Yeah, I'm sure this will all come to pass. [cross-posted at Firedoglake]

And this is another chapter in the very big GOP book of why we can't have nice things.

("...gastro-bypass defying sausage gravy"? Good one Dr. Turk. I'm stealing that. Don't expect any credit. It's what I do.)

It's about time we show that government mooching agency known as the National Cancer Institute some tough love! They need to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps and let the power of the invisible hand work it's cancer-curing magic. Back before the AMA and evil government regulations, we had innovators like this guy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_R._Brinkley

Goat testicle implants is the forward type thinking that only the free-market can provide!

You libruls just don't appreciate the genius (Genius, I tells ya!) of the Republican Party as presently constituted. They're not only gonna cure cancer, they'll do it for free!

Now, the person who comes up with the designer bottles for Cancer Cure is going to make a mint.
