In a bizarre moment the GOP will never live down, Republican Sen. Alberta Darling is proposing a government mandate on insurance companies to include the oral version of chemotherapy in their policies along with the intravenous treatments.
In an even more bizarre moment, someone who actually took the oral version to treat her own cancer, Lt Gov. Kleefisch opposes the mandate, on the premise her ideology dictates a free market solution.
Keefisch: "We obviously want to encourage free enterprise and free markets, but on the other hand, Oral chemotherapy is something that is up and coming in the medical world, and we're hoping, obviously that more insurance companies will cover it."Kind of fits in with the crowd reactions at the Republican presidential debates. These people are ghouls. WKOW 27 News:
