Goats-- no, uhhh, tax credits -- for small -- a lot -- many -- huge number

Tiny American flags for everyone! On Sunday, George Stephanopoulis sat down with John McThuselah and talked about the candidate's health care plan:

STEPHANOPOULOS: One of the other points Senator Obama made in the debate that you weren’t able to respond to, he said that, for the first time ever, you would tax health benefits by taking away the deduction that employers now get to provide health benefits.

MCCAIN: Right -- this all began during World War II with price and wage controls. Those damn Prussians... if it weren't for them, we'd all be able to get by now wearing onions on our belts! When I was a lad, before getting captured by the Cong, I'd have to walk twenty miles to buy onions for the family. The good ones, not those fruity little green jobs you liberal commie hippies put on arugula. I don't think you understand, Jim...


MCCAIN: My name is John, you fucking whippersnapper.

STEPHANOPOULOS: No, my name is 'George.'

MCCAIN: That's what I said. I don't think you understand, Joe, that for five and a half years as a prisoner of war, I didn't have health insurance. So these cunts today, they should just quit their damn whining and suck it up.
Then he gets even more out-of-touch.

mmm....yeah...he also mentioned that his $5000 tax credit wouldn't be enough to cover health insurance and that only the folks with gold plated health care would be hurting.

K. Let's discuss. If you don't earn enough to pay $5000 in taxes are they going to GIVE you the money? And is there a requirement that you spend it on health insurance?

Also, who has gold plated health insurance on the taxpayer's dime? Oh....that would be the largely wealthy members of Congress, most of whom could afford it on their own.

So, it's okay for them to suck the government's teat, but the rest of us? Yeah....go suck it.
