Senator Hank Erwin had this to say.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
"We need to send a message we cannot continue to fund a disease that comes as a result of a lifestyle choice. We need to appeal to change the lifestyle, to embrace a lifestyle that is godly and holy." - State Sen. Hank Erwin, R-Montevallo.
Now, there are a myriad of "lifestyle choices" that could cause disease.
For example, if you eat at McDonald's too often you could get high cholesterol and/or high blood pressure which could lead to a stroke or heart attack.
If you smoke cigarettes you could get lung cancer.
If you drink too much alcohol you could get cirrosis of the liver.
And apparently if you practice Sen. Hank Erwin's brand of religion you will wind up a mentally derranged lunatic who hates everyone who is not like you. This will cause stress, which can lead to high blood pressure and/or stroke.
So, let's cut healthcare funding for pepole who eat, smoke, drink and practice Sen. Hank Erwin's brand of Christianity.
Those are "lifestyle choices" after all and we want to be fair to everyone.
