Republicans Want More Guns (Injuries) And Gutted Health Care!

October 7, 2017

I would love to have Speaker of the House Paul Ryan defend on national television the Republican push to allow ever more guns in society along with the horrific injuries they cause to people at the same time the GOP pushes to roll back health care laws.

Gun violence is a costly epidemic in the US, with a recent study based on emergency department visits between 2006 and 2014 showing the cost per patient was between $6,755 (US$5,254) for entering the emergency department to around $123,291 (US$95,887) once an overnight stay is included.

The annual bill is around $3.6 billion (US$2.8 billion) in emergency department and inpatient charges.

Conservatives would be just a running joke if the chaos they caused was not so deadly and costly.
