More GOP Medicaid Shenanigans - A Liberal Rant

In response to an article concerning states disallowing Medicaid coverage for people who are not working.

Republicans assume that people who are unemployed or underemployed or ill or who have any number of other barriers have simply made bad choices. Only the "good" deserve health care insurance. They're all for individual responsibility (though they don't equate low wages with inability to be responsible for one's self), and have no tolerance for social responsibility. Theirs is the party of Greed and flawed morals and no compassion or empathy or sense of religious values. They think that they are being wronged when they are not allowed to discriminate, and can't see that preventing someone from harming others is not the same as harming others. Their God is unfettered capitalism. Capitalism free from regulations protecting workers, the environment, consumers, the old, the sick, the disabled, children, or even the responsibility to pay their fair share in taxes. They value working money more than worker's sweat, and they have no scruples about how they accomplish their goals. They are radical conservatives. They are disgusting, and can't smell their own hypocrisy.

States Are Quietly Pushing To Take Medicaid Away From The Unemployed
