Is it a small business owner? Is it the factory worker? Certainly not.
Who proposed adding 250,000 more illegal aliens and deadbeat Arkansans to Medicaid?
I gaze down at a newspaper photo that identifies 3 Big Government typesAndy Allison, State Welfare Director; Surgeon General Joe Thompson; and Insurance Commissioner Jay Bradford. Is Bradford the same guy who moved back and forth between Pine Bluff & Whitehall to escape term limits? Does he own an insurance company doing “state business”? (Like my good friend Percy Malone?) Certainly these 3 are going to promote welfare expansion, they all will benefit, directly or indirectly.
Have any of you legislative juggernauts and/or government types ever questioned productive citizens who are paying for all this grand theft to see if they approve of said theft? Additionally, have any of you ever discussed a cutoff date for dispensing the unconstitutional and ill-gotten welfare largesse, or are you willing to kill the Golden Goose?
Allison and DHS made 3 bombastic statements.
1. Allison told a Medicaid panel, “Expansion would provide healthcare coverage to a large portion of Arkansans who cannot now afford health insurance (your proof?), with most of the cost paid for by the federal government”. Spoken like a true parasitic bureaucrat and where the hell does Allison think the federal government gets the money? Pols like to call this “free” money.
2. Allison goes on to say “I personally believe we have the obligation to help the poor…..” Who is we, Allison? And what is my obligation to your faux generosity?
3. The State Department of Human Services has estimated that with the influx of federal dollars the state would see a net savings of over $372 million in a few years. Same mentality as Allison. I reiterate to the fools in the DHS, where do you think the millions come from?
Do any of you legislative juggernauts know what percentage of Arkansas’ total population are on some sort of welfare check and do you know how many illegals are slopping at the welfare trough, and do you care? Does oversight and generational welfare ever come into play in your conversations?
While the nation and state are sinking like a stone you clowns add more sinking weight, so by all means dance to the music provided by the aforementioned Three Stooges.
But what can we expect from legislators, but not limited to, who engage in nepotism?
P.S. It doesn’t hurt to just say no….try it, you might like it. $16 TRILLION and counting.
