Nevada GOP candidate Sharron Angle made some comments last year that are now going viral about having to pay for  mandates covered under the umbrella of autism.

“Take off the mandates for coverage in the state of Nevada and all over the United States,” Angle said. “You know what I’m talking about. You’re paying for things that you don’t even need.”

“They just passed the latest one. Everything they want to throw at us is covered under ‘autism’ so that’s a mandate that you have to pay for,” she continued. “How about maternity leave? I’m not going to have any more babies but I sure get to pay for it on my insurance. Those are the kinds of things we want to get rid of.”

Angle made the comments at the Winnemucca Tea Party Express rally in 2009.  Harry Reid’s campaign responded;

“If Sharron Angle is going to engage in scapegoating and fear-mongering to blame high health care costs on autism sufferers and their alleged false or fraudulent claims, she needs to prove it and she needs to quantify it,” said a press release issued by Reid’s campaign. “Much like her ‘domestic enemies’ assertions, it’s time for Angle to put up or shut up — or else apologize to the millions of families across America that she’s insulted.”
