It strikes again.
A new poll reveals that 27% of Republicans surveyed think Bartering a Chicken in exchange for Healthcare is a good way for families to lower healthcare costs.
As you may know, Sue Lowden has proposed reducing medical costs by having patients barter with their doctor instead of using health insurance. Under Lowden's barter proposal, patients would negotiate directly with doctors, offering services or goods such as painting the doctor's home or giving the doctor a chicken, in exchange for medical treatment.
QUESTION: Do you think Lowden's proposal is a realistic way to bring medical costs down for most families?
Yes No Not Sure
ALL 14 81 5
DEM 5 91 4
REP 27 68 5
7 87 6 IND
Of course 27% represents the number of any given population that is stark raving mad.
Which is exactly the percentage of Republicans surveyed that believes that bartering Chickens for Health Care is a good idea.
