Giuliani lies about cancer to scare Americans

Rudy Guiliani has a radio ad in Iowa in which proudly acknowledges being a survivor of prostate cancer (good for him, seriously). But then he does on to say that he’s mighty lucky not to live in the UK, where they socialized medicine, since the prostate survival rate is just 42%, compared to 84% in the U.S.

“You and I should be making the decisions about what kind of health care we get with our doctors, not with a government bureaucrat,” Giuliani says in the ad.

Nice argument, if it weren’t a pathetic, manipulative lie.

(I’m using good about not hot-linking/stealing stuff from other sites, like this one…)
