Compassionate conservatism: cut Medicaid services to the elderly, blind and disabled

Sorry, but you're just not that important:

The possibility that some elderly and disabled people would be kicked off the Medicaid rolls has the long-term care industry mobilizing to fight it, saying the reduction would threaten the ability of some facilities to stay open.

“We’ve got a damn bunch of ignorant people in the state legislature,” said Chester Broadway, 73, who had his leg amputated as a result of an infection and uses a wheelchair. He moved into The Covington about a year ago.

“If they were in this position, they wouldn’t be doing it,” he said.

You're right, Chester. But they don't run in the same circles as you and I.

Beat me to it

I was researching something and decided to check if someone else had written this up.... :) I just closed mine out.

Vote Democratic, the ass you save may be your own.

Not just lack of compassion

The continued piling on the underprivileged by the privileged NC GOP legislators is nothing short of cruelty.

The headlong plunge toward a society of a very few "haves" with everyone else being "have nots" just accelerates.

Every time these loons get together they seem to find something even more extreme than what they did last time.

NC GOP is off the rails.

Posmo beat us both

I just noticed this diary from yesterday, which covered the Medicaid cuts.

Honestly, I don't know how these people can sleep at night. Like James said, there doesn't seem to be any reasoning with them. Our only salvation will come from the voting booth.

Oh but

yours was so nicely done!

I don't know how these people sleep at night either. Nor do I know how (most of them) can profess to be Christians.
