General / Kent Snyder's Ghost is Swift-boating Ron Paul
« on: September 15, 2011, 12:33:38 PM »
What ever happened to the alleged $400,000 in medical expenses left by the deceased 2008 campaign manager for Ron Paul?

It has been interesting following this story - it surfaced because of the recent debate fumbling of a health insurance question by Dr. Paul. Since then the two stories (the debate question and the Snyder story) seem to have been merging for the rabid anti-Paul crowd. Here's an example of the hay being made: http://thinkprogress.org/health/2011/09/14/318633/ron-paul-campaign-manage-died-uninsured/

Here's how Ron Paul flubbed the debate question and how he should have answered:

My take:
Without state intervention driving up cost by limiting competition and access to the marketplace his bills wouldn't have been as high in the first place. If he had had health coverage his insurance company would have negotiated the inflated bills down to size. Hospitals will do this with uninsured individuals too.

He died. Perhaps his family should ask for their money back?

I'm interested to know the full story. Is Snyder's family still in need? Did the bill get paid and by who? We need more information.

Driving through New Hampshire recently I noted that they have state run liquor stores. Is that the only way to buy liquor in NH?
