But it turns out, as we learned today, this bill actually would stop greedy out-of-state lawyers from harassing nurses who are only doing their best to help nursing home residents in their twilight years. And honestly, these nurses love these patients just like their own granny and paw-paw. It's not the Kill Old People Cheap Act. It's the Choose Care Act.
As her colleagues surrounding her got all weepy, one nurse, Marilyn McClain, gave a fiery speech to the press:
"It's alleged that we are abusive. It's alleged that we are neglectful. Nursing used to be an honorable profession. But now we have to defend ourselves. No one wants to feel demeaned. No one wants to feel belittled. These nurses have a sincere desire to help people, not hurt people. You don't have to hold us accountable. We hold ourselves accountable. Every nurse has a right to stand up and fight."
