Fox host: It's “ridiculous” to say that people die for lack of medical care
Melissa Francis: Budget cuts are “not about trying to kill children, which is ridiculous because we don't let anyone die in this country for lack of medical care”
From the May 24 edition of Fox News' Outnumbered:
MELISSA FRANCIS (CO-HOST): I think [Office of Management and Budget Director] Mick Mulvaney, who we heard at the beginning -- I am such a huge fan. He is so terrific at messaging. Because the problem that the right has is with expressing why there is compassion in what they're doing and why it's not about trying to kill children, which is ridiculous because we don't let anyone die in this country for lack of medical care. But the way he said it when he says we are going to judge compassion by how many people we have off these programs as opposed to how many people we keep on these programs. We have to have compassion for the people, for the taxpayer, for the people who are sending, balance that with compassion for the people who are getting services.
