alstroemeria posts,

Santorum sez if you can't afford health care, you must be spending too much on your cell phone and cable bills!


My annual health insurance premium of $7,284 is more than 70 times my annual cell phone bill of $100 (Tracfone prepaid cell one-year service + 1,000 minutes)

And since I have a GOP-approved, for-profit health plan, I'll pay another $5,000 to $6,000/year in annual deductibles and co-pays if I get sick.

Just more evidence that these GOP Tea-Baggers are bad at math.
