Nobody Here But Us Chickens

From the, “You can’t be serious” department, HuffPo reports on an alternative Healthcare proposal from a candidate for US Senate. Her prescription? Chickens.

Sue Lowden, a Republican candidate challenging Majority Leader Harry Reid for his Nevada Senate seat is refusing to back down from an earlier suggestion that America consider a medical barter system as an alternative to current health care solutions.

On Monday Lowden took the idea one step further.

“Before we all started having health care, in the olden days, our grandparents, they would bring a chicken to the doctor,” Lowden told a local news station. “They would say I’ll paint your house.”

Here’s the video:
