Republican Lawmaker: I Do Not Support Quarantine For People With HIV

Georgia lawmaker Betty Price, wife of former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, has walked back from her suggestion that people with HIV should be quarantined according to the New York Daily News.

Georgia lawmaker Betty Price, the wife of former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, has walked back from her suggestion that people with HIV should be quarantined according to the New York Daily News.

Georgia Rep. Betty Price came under for this week for floating the idea that people with the disease that leads to AIDS be cordoned off to stop its spread. The “provocative and rhetorical comment,” made during a public hearing Friday, was “taken completely out of context,” the state lawmaker said in a statement to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “I do not support a quarantine in this public health challenge and dilemma of undertreated HIV patients,” Berry Price said in the statement.

No, Trump is calling for cutting public health funds and this is obviously for the future, after they get rid of the disabled and elderly. Easy to do when you cut food stamps, Disability and healthcare.

"Just being provocative" -- political spin for "I was deliberately being an empathy-devoid ass."
