Sen. John Heinz-Kerry (D'u' - Mass)
- The "particular disease" he's speaking about is HIV-infected people, and the law he's speaking of is the 1987 ban prohibiting travel and immigration to the U.S. for people infected with HIV.
**I'd ask if he was serious, but I know better....That said, Kerry is correct about "stigmatiz[ing] a particular disease."
THE U.S. SHOULD HAVE A BAN ON ALL TRAVEL AND IMMIGRATION INTO THE COUNTRY FOR ANYONE WITH A COMMUNICABLE DISEASE!
Why in the world should we allow people to enter our country to infect the American populace? And why should we be forced to pay for their healthcare when they show up in our emergency rooms, and somehow get government-paid health benefits?
Seems to me these two questions should be common-sense concerns for every American...Which is exactly why Sen. Heinz and his band of idiotic brethren don't get it.**
