Donald Trump’s Budget director decided to call out on all Diabetic Americans to let them know he doesn’t believe that they deserve to get Health Insurance.

Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), weighed in on the issue at the Light Forum at Stanford University. He was asked if families should be denied medical care because they can’t afford it, a standard Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) had termed“the Jimmy Kimmel test,” after the late night comedian’s recent emotional call for improved health care.

Mulvaney said he believes in providing a safety net so if you get cancer,  you do not end up broke. However, he believes kids who grow fat and develop diabetes later in their life should be blamed for it.

He continued, “That doesn’t mean we should take care of the person who sits at home, eats poorly and gets diabetes. Is that the same thing as Jimmy Kimmel’s kid? I don’t think that it is.”

This is especially rich coming from someone from the Trump administration who multiple times has claimed that fast food in America is one of the “healthies” meals in the world. Trump decided to terminate Michelle’s initiative for eating healthier, yet at the same time, his Budget Direct is criticizing the eating Habits of millions of Americans. Hypocrisy much?

As of 2014, 29.1 million Americans suffer from diabetes, which is about 9.3 percent of the population.

According to Mulvaney, an examination of their eating habits and how their disease was triggered would have to be undertaken before it could be determined whether they are deserving of health insurance or not. In the meantime, people will suffer and possibly die from their illness.

Diabetes is a condition, which could be trigger by eating disorders, but there also people who are genetically more prone to developing diabetes.

The Affordable Care Act mandates coverage for people with pre-existing conditions like diabetes, without casting about for blame or applying some kind of litmus test to discern if they are deserving of treatment.This is apparently something which the GOP cannot live with, as they believe they have the right to choose who lives and who dies.

The reformed Championed by Trump and GOP would put several barriers before one is able to get any coverage at all while lowering the quality of life of the people and increasing the risk of death, but most importantly. It will allow insurance companies to make a LOT of money.
