GOPer: ‘Dying’ Gays Want Free Meds

Oh dear lord. Michigan Republican leader Dave Agema said gay people “want free medical [care] because they’re dying.” Agema, a former state representative, represents Michigan as a member of the Republican National Committee. “They want free medical because they're dying between 30 and 44 years old," Agema told a group of Republicans late last week in remarks that surfaced today. In voicing his opposition to same-sex relationships, Agema claimed some American Airlines employees would tell the company someone with AIDS was their lover in order to get them medical benefits. Agema also called homosexuality a “filthy lifestyle” on Facebook earlier this year.
