Eric Cantor’s message if you get sick and lose your insurance

During a Public Square on Healthcare Reform hosted by the Richmond Times Dispatch, Representative and Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) offered advice to a woman who said her relative got cancer and has no health insurance.

Yobi Benjamin at the San Francisco Chronicle paraphrased the exchange.

The question an audience participant asked is paraphrased as "Relative got cancer and lost his insurance... what happens?"

Representative Eric Cantors response paraphrased: "Sell or auction all your belongings. After you reach a certain poverty threshold, apply for Medicaid, the federal medical insurance for the very poor. If that's not enough apply for indigent services."
