Pat Roberts Apologizes For Mammogram Comment

Associated Press - March 23, 2017 3:27 pm

Republican Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas is apologizing for his comment about the possibility the GOP health care bill would ease federal requirements on coverage of basic services like mammograms.

In an interview with a reporter for Talking Points Memo on Thursday, Roberts was asked about potential changes in the health care bill. He said: “I wouldn’t want to lose my mammograms.”

He later tweeted an apology: “I deeply regret my comments on a very important topic. Mammograms are essential to women’s health & I never intended to indicate otherwise.”

He is from the good ol boys corrupt reTHUGLICAN POS Kansas club. I hope he finds himself someday with stage 4 breast cancer. He is probably to dumb to know men get breast cancer. I hope someday his head is squeezed during a mammogram, in place of his breasts. What a disgrace to all the women that have went through the pain and suffering of breast cancer, here is a big FU to you Roberts. Also is there a form I can fill out to stop paying for your WEALTHCARE!!!!!!!!
