Ron Paul actually sticks to his platform, unlike most politicians. But the real story is how his friend couldn't afford health insurance because of a pre-existing condition. The people who need insurance the most can't afford it. That's a shame.

The problem is not care its insurance and cost of it.
We give care to all, what we argue is who pays. The cost must come down..or no one will be able to. 440k for Pneumonia treatment is absolutely outrageous. There was a friend of mine who was 21 when he died of Pneumonia after drinking the water from Mexico. A no no...
It was not from lack of insurance or care it was from the progressiveness and rabidness of the illness. This is a horrific attack against Paul. I would have punched that reporter for bringing up a fallen comrade.

The basic gyst of the story is that Ron Paul says that poor people and the uninsurable are not going to die off because churches and other members of the community will pick up the slack in those cases where somebody has large medical bills they cannot afford to pay off. Ron Paul's aid died with $400k in medical bills, and Ron Paul and the aid's friends were only able to raise about $50,000.

As for the issue the OP takes with the media coverage (as usual), Ron Paul is going to get criticized by the media for all sorts of things just like all the other presidential candidates and presidents. I get it, ron paul supporters want him to be shielded from any criticism, but I'm sorry, it comes with the position of running for president. As well, if you intend to dish out criticism, political attacks, you gotta be prepared to take them as well.
