Virginia GOP candidate and Corey Stewart unveils his own “repeal and replace” for the Commonwealth:

HARRISONBURG, Va. — During a rally in downtown Harrisonburg yesterday, Republican gubernatorial candidate Corey Stewart unveiled his new, state-sponsored plan for health care, calling for the reintroduction of and reliance on medicinal leeches and kitchen cutlery.

Stewart, who recently proclaimed his admiration for the Confederacy at a rally in Roanoke, said the new plan, which has been dubbed “Antebellum Healthcare,” will be an answer to “the disastrous, tax-hungry plan of Obamacare,” and will save citizens money by utilizing medicinal ideas that were regularly used before the Civil War.

“Our proposed Medicaid plan will offer Virginia citizens health care that was successfully used by our stalwart forefathers,” Stewart explained, citing the use of such practices during the mid-19th century as a measure of its benefits. “It will also come at a lower cost with minimal premiums.”

Yes, it’s satire. Probably.

Y’all have a great weekend.

    Sure, Corey. You go first. If you survive, you can tell us all about it.
