Well, isn't he just a breath of stagnant republican air?

Then it shouldn't cover care for prostate problems because women don't have prostates. I could go on and on and on, but then I would get into silly territory - something I do way too much.

Obviously has no clue about how insurance works.I guess young people shouldn't have to pay for his healthcare because he's senile.

Geez, he has spent too much time crawling around under his rock. Gives me the shivers to know that he and his ilk breed. brrrrrr He better hope his insurance covers stupidity. Just when you think these lunatics can't come up with more stupid things to say, they do.

Unfortunately, I know of no healthcare insurance that covers idiocy complicated by megalomania - - - -Nor, come to think of it, the severe cognitive-defect condition of being Republican

Well, so much for Republicans and their love of family. He talked about kids as if he hated them. Not just his wife was "fixed", he got himself "fixed" too! Guess he doesn't know if one is "fixed" the other doesn't need to be, or maybe he planned on a little extra curricular activities. Regardless, what he was saying about the healthcare coverage was a lie. I am just so sick of all the lies ... and the stupid. The stupid is getting tiresome.

That's wonderful because he should not procreate.

So was she broken? Personally I think the winner in this debate is humanity in that Rep. Phil Roe would reporduce still the whole argumentum ex culo that is part and parcel of the Republican debate on healthcare shows how out of touch they are. Virtually every country that has Universal healthcare finds America health service to be a national disgrace particularly with the hypocrisy of the Republicans who want the parasitic Insurance companies demonstate their very own "Death Panels".

Phil Roe has three children. While it IS admirable that he an his wife were eventually "fixed", having three or more children contributes to long term population growth, and U.S. population growth is too high.

Anyway, what is he complaining about? The ACA does cover female sterilization (and should cover vasectomy, but doesn't yet.)

He should fix his brains, instead. If any..

I think his wife is *stuck* - with an imbecile of the first degree.

Another selfish, self-centered, poor excuse for a human being.

This is the typical speak of any old-boys club. Vulgarity seems to unite these old-boys. This man is so dumb he doesn't even know that he could have saved his wife a painful, expensive operation (always risky) to have her fixed if he just have his tubes snipped (getting a bit vulgar myself here) which is an outpatient treatment.

But the whole point of course is that ACA shouldn't be the end of the line. Social solidarity is a very dirty thing in America, not only for Republicans, and as long as there is a system with insurances and packages there will be people who will want to pick only those things they need. Funny how they still want to have a GP who is versed in everything under the sun, huh?
Universal healthcare, single payer, whatever you call it, is the only way to shut people like him up.

This guy is so, so stupid. Makes you want to put him in a rubber room so he doesn't hurt anyone else!
His poor kids! They have to listen to this tripe 24/7! He really has a deep admiration for his "family" doesn't he? Ugh! We don't need your "vital statistics", dude, please! It is best to keep a little mystery in this farce you call a congressional session!

Anyone else wondering why both he and his wife are "fixed"? Isn't that overkill?

Folks, step right up and witness the failure of the Tennessee education system. Sad, because my grandson graduated there. At least he doesn't seem to be as stupid as this twit. Superior genes I guess. ;o)
