Voters in deep-red Oklahoma weigh Medicaid expansion as virus cases climb

Oh NOW they want Medicaid expansion?

Didn’t they demonize this when they all had “jobs.”

Looks like we are all “welfare queens” now.

Buh buh that’s socialism! All of those people should have saved more money and made better choices!

Why aren’t they pulling themselves up from their bootstraps?

What do you mean NOW?

Most of the top 15 states that depend on handouts ARE red. They're just fucking assholes in denial about it and have the nerve to be "Republican" when they'd shrivel up and die if they actually had to live entirely based on their vote and the policies that are strictly GOP.

They should have to write a hundred sentences: “I am a filthy hypocrite”

As someone said on Twitter under this story:

"Conservative empathy doesn’t reach beyond their own person."

How will this translate come November?

They were always democrats but have been brainwashed first by Koch and Rush and Fox and now Facebook.

But Stimulus checks are SOCIALISM!

R10, i don't blame brainwashing, I blame entitlement. I blame their delusions of grandeur. They don't see anything they're handed as "welfare." It's when others who are non-white get it that it's considered "welfare." They have always believed they were someone they are not.

And LBJ's quote also applies. Do I have to quote it at this point or do we all know it by heart by now?

I'm in a red state, and they see their welfare as "Getting back something for paying my taxes," not like the filthy Democrat "welfare queens."

It's tiring.

R13, I'm sure their pittance in taxes is paying for me here in NYC. Fank them for me, will you?

Do they understand that the reason our blue states pay higher taxes while they pay lower taxes is because WE are sending it to them which means their taxes get to stay low?

by Anonymousreply 1406/29/2020

How are the dems taking advantage of situations like this?

by Anonymousreply 1506/29/2020

R12 exactly. These people are asshole hypocrites.

They make me fucking sick.

Oh, dear.

R4 I live in a red state and know so many of these types.

"I'll keep my Medicaid, but I don't think everybody should have it." That's a direct quote from a woman who only has her Medicaid because she shit out a bastard kid. This was after she lost custody of another child due to neglect.

by Anonymousreply 1806/29/2020

To be fair, most people in red states had no idea that the Medicaid expansion was a thing until Trump started to roll back Obamacare.

I voted for the expansion. The commercials and flyers advocating voting for it have been very good and hopefully it will penetrate the brains of people here how important it is. I truly haven't seen anyone advocating for not passing it. Oklahoma, along with a lot of states right now, is broke as a joke. They really need this Medicaid program because they just don't have the money to keep paying for healthcare right now if they can get a boost from the federal government.

Most (maybe all?) red states that have put this to the people to vote on have successfully passed it. All the Republican governors who denied this to their state in previous years can go straight to hell.

Let's hope it gets passed. I mean, Oklahoma has medical marijuana - why not this?

It seems that SCOTUS has ruled that parts of Oklahoma are indian reservation territory.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do!
