Santorum: People don’t die from lack of healthcare

Among the truly bizarre and insensitive comments coming from presidential candidates was one from former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum. He asserted that no one in America has ever died because they didn’t have healthcare.

Santorum, whose devotion to small government is legendary except when it comes to getting large federal-government grants for favored campaign donors, made the comment while speaking at an Iowa Christian college. (See the New York Times’ reporting on how Santorum directed federal funds to big donors here.)

A report from Healthcare IT News covered follow-up reactions to Santorum’s  comment. The story quotes, among many others, a blogger you may have heard of:
