Tin Man or Scarecrow?

I hope somebody reading this lives in the Kansas 2nd district, and can call Rep. Lynn Jenkins and ask her why she told one of her constituents, a 27 year old single mom who can't afford health insurance, but makes too much for Medicaid or SCHIP to "go be a grown-up" and buy herself some insurance.

To be fair to Jenkins, she clearly seems to think that doing everything she can to derail health reform is no contradiction to "we need to reform the system right now" and that her imaginary proposals will actually do something to help, instead of making things worse. Unfortunately for her, while that is fair, it stills shows that she's a moron. Or heartless. Hard to tell which.
