Think Ron Paul is great? Clip supporting letting people die, with an audience member cheering 'YEAH!'

And he looks really ticked off by Wolf Blitzer's question.

The question is what happens if a healthy person who has no insurance has a tragic accident, is in a coma, and needs intensive care for months. Who pays for it? Paul says that the person should take responsibility for their own actions, but then, seemingly realizing that the person in question would not be conscious, he backtracks and says that the person in question should have bought insurance.

It brings up the question of what should happen to people born with disabilities who need medical care? Is Paul supportive of letting them die because they'd be a burden on society? It reminds me of this Nazi propaganda poster:

The translation, according to Wiki, is this: "This person suffering from hereditary defects costs the community 60,000 Reichsmark during his lifetime. Fellow German, that is your money, too."

Let em die, gas em, save money, don't let them be a burden on society.
