Yep, she actually said it.
“Take off the mandates for coverage in the state of Nevada and all over the United States,” she shouts. “But here you know what I’m talking about. You’re paying for things you don’t even need.
“They just passed the latest one, is everything that they want to throw at us now is covered under 'autism',” she said, using exaggerated air quotes to deliver the word ‘autism.’
So we "don't even need" for insurance companies to treat fairly people with autism? Does Sharron Angle really want to stoop this low? Apparently so.
So are these people just burdens "we just don't need"?
And this is what Sharrontology bashed.
"Take off the mandates for coverage in the state of Nevada and all over the United States," Angle said. "But here you know what I'm talking about. You're paying for things you don't even need. They just passed the latest one, is everything that they want to throw at us now is covered under autism," she said, using her fingers to make quotes in the air while she said the word ‘autism.' "So that's a mandate that you have to pay for. How about maternity leave, I'm not going to have any more babies, but I sure get to pay for it on my insurance. So those are the things we want to get rid of."
Her comments regarding autism coverage refer to Assembly Bill 162, which passed with sweeping bipartisan support in the Nevada Legislature in 2009. Only two Nevada legislators voted no on the bill: Assemblyman Ed Goedhart, R-Amargosa, Churchill, Esmeralda, Lincoln, Mineral, Nye counties, and AssemblymanDon Gustavson, R-Sparks, Humboldt, Lander, Washoe counties. The bill passed 60-2 in both houses with one legislator absent.
Again, Sharron Angle reveals herself to be so far outside the mainstream and so far from common sense that even Republicans can't accept her extremism! No wonder why she won't talk to any journalists!
And no wonder why she won't talk to any real Nevadans like me. I have members of my own family who are autistic. I have an aunt who's helping to raise her autistic grandson. I know autism, and I know Sharron Angle is full of shit when she claims health care for autistic kids is "things you don't even need". What does she know about autism that I don't know and families dealing with autism don't know?
This just shows Sharrontology will do anything, even throw innocent kids with autism, under the bus to curry favor with teabaggers. Disgusting. She truly is unfit for higher office.
