This is why it's hard to take the right wing seriously. Via The Politico:

GOP strategist Rick Wilson recently asked a focus group of Republican voters whether they would rather “kill Obamacare” or have killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden:

If Democrats suffered through “Bush Derangement Syndrome” during the last decade, Republican primary voters view the current president with near-contempt, thanks to the lousy economy and a liberal governing agenda. Obama’s unpopular health care law still is driving much of that anger. Wilson said he recently conducted a focus group where Republicans were asked whether, if they had a choice, they would rather “kill Obamacare” or have killed Osama bin Laden.

“They would have killed Obamacare and waited for the actuarial tables [to] play out for bin Laden,” Wilson said.

Of course, what they don't acknowledge is the number of Americans that would also die as a result of a lack of access to health coverage. I guess those people are right on par with Bin Laden in the eyes of the right.
