The following is a perfect example of why a clueless Donald Trump has not, and will not "repeal and replace Ombamacare", as promised to his voters.
GOP Rep Tells Mom Her Son On Medicaid Should Just Get A Better Job If He Wants Health Care
Rep. Warren Davidson (R-Ohio) told the mother of a service industry worker who has benefitted from the Affordable Care Actís Medicaid expansion that her son should get a better job if he wants decent insurance when Obamacare is repealed.
ďOK, I donít know anything about your son, but as you described him, his skills are focused in an industry that doesnít have the kind of options that you want him to have for health care. So, I donít believe that these taxpayers here are entitled to give that to him. I believe heís got the opportunity to go earn those health benefits,Ē he responded, eliciting boos from the crowd.
Mr. Davidson seems to think service industry workers are not worthy enough for healthcare in America. He's suggested if they want decent healthcare coverage they can "go earn those health benefits" by finding a better job....Un. Fucking. Believable.
Mr. Davidson's photo should be plastered across his home state of Ohio and D.C. like a 'Most Wanted' poster so that everyone knows who he is. Then, everytime he encouters a service industry worker throughout his daily routine--from buying his morning latte, to filling up his car with gas, picking up his Big Mac with large fries and Diet Coke, to stopping by WalMart for his jumbo pack of toilet paper to wipe his fat ass--each and every worker who serves Dr. Davidson throughout his day should ask him why he thinks they do not deserve healthcare in America.
If Rep. Davidson and others of his ilk are really stupid enough to think the only thing standing between low-wage workers and having healthcare is finding a better job, then he needs to resign. He is unfit to represent every low-wage worker in his district. As it is he was elected in a special election in 2016 when John Boehner resigned, thus is among those up for re-election in the 2018 mid-terms. The loud boos from his constituents should clue him in that he's somehow out of touch.
Trump can continue to support this shitshow, but the loud boos are going to continue right up to the mid-term elections in November of 2018. His taxpayer-provided golfing days are numbered.
Basically what you're telling us is 1) once a government handout is granted, it's politically impossible to end it, and 2) when the Democrats had absolute control of the government, they gave us shit on a shingle for everyone instead of addressing the problems a small percentage of the population were experiencing.
We already knew both of these facts.
