Good Christian Rick Santorum Would Happily See Poor Children Die for his God — the Market

February 8, 2012

None of that namby-pamby Christlike “caring for the poor crap” for Rick Santorum, by god (sic)! Nope. His devotion to Jesus is superseded only by greed, an utterly unshakeable disregard for the plight of the poor, and above all by his even greater and firmer devotion to the real God — the Market, with its law of supply and demand.

After all, says Santorum with impeccable logic that would surely have Jesus nodding his head in enthusiastic agreement, people are willing to pay as much as $900 for an iPad. So why shouldn’t a poor mother — whose child has a rare genetic disorder, and who somehow just can’t do the work necessary to scrape together that mere million bucks for the medications — not be willing to fork over that much cash and get no help in paying the bills? After all, her pure-hearted sacrifice (oh, right, and incidentally the death of her son), will give the drug companies just the incentive they need to work on developing drugs for these rare diseases.

Surely she understands that her inability to pay what the drug companies need is her own fault, and her own failing?

(Luke 4:40) – Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him [Jesus]; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them — and charged every last one of them a million bucks because there’s no such thing as a free lunch and everyone’s gotta pay their own way in this world and — and —

What? Jesus didn’t say that? No worries — his faithful disciple Rick Santorum has improved the message. What did that Jesus guy know anyway?

What does a working mom expect when she refuses to cough up that million bucks for medicine? She has only herself to blame. That's what Jesus would say, right? (Photo courtesy Flickr user puroticorico)
