From His Lips...

Mike Huckabee, no doubt after clearing it with god, has a plan.

Fox News host Mike Huckabee is advising Republicans to stop Obamacare by curing cancer. 
Huckabee claimed that in order to stop the government program, Obamacare, the GOP needs to start another government program to cure cancer, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and heart disease, notes 
...Huckabee did not mention how to actually bring down the costs of health insurance for 50 million uninsured Americans, but went on to advocate cures that the medical community has been working on for decades. 
“We said in 1961 we were going to put a man on the moon and in a decade we did it. We said we were going to cure Polio and we did it in the 50s. We said we were going to build an atom bomb in the 40s and we did it. Where is that kinds of focus, funding and fixing it?” asked Huckabee. 
However, Huckabee didn't mention that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) already spends billions on medical research.
Also, in May 2012, the Obama administration created and funded a National Alzheimer’s Plan to find new ways to prevent and treat the condition, noted Time.
Another thing he failed to mention is the cuts in medical research demanded by his fellow teabagging Republicans. But you gotta admit: in its simplicity, it's simply simple. Only thing I can't figure out, though, is why god gave us cancer in the first place. He could fix that himself, and that would be really low-cost. On the other hand, if he likes killing our kids with cancer, isn't it a little arrogant to say we can stop him? After all, Mike's pals say it's arrogant to think we can affect climate.

More I think about it, more I think the right reverend has committed blasphemy.
