Garbage can babies mean health care reform is unconstitutional?

Jebus, do these Republicans ever listen to themselves? There are always babies who are born, lived, and died without crossing a state line, never getting any health care whatsoever, because they're thrown in garbage cans at birth,... and that means health care reform is unconstitutional???

What's wrong with these people? I'd point out that such an infant would never be required to buy health insurance under this law, either, in his tragically few minutes of life - but is it really necessary to even make that argument?

Honestly, the whole Republican Party has gone completely off the deep end, don't you think?

PS. And also on the subject of health care, how about the Congressional Budget Office estimate that repealing the health care reform bill would increase the deficit by $230 billion, just in the first decade?

Of course, Republicans deal with that just like they deal with global warming and all other unwelcome facts. They just refuse to believe it. After all, if they don't believe in something, it doesn't exist, right?
