$5,317 – too rich to receive medicaid

The Conservative Lie

The Republican Governor who spent over $5000 of taxpayers money travelling to see his son play a sports game thinks that level of salary should disqualify you from medicaid.

Adults in a family of three that makes as little as $103 a week would earn too much to qualify for health care provided by Medicaid under the plan proposed by Christie. $5,317 is a third of the poverty level. Never mind the uninsured worker employed full time for minimum wage, they wouldn’t qualify, under the Christie plan even a parent working half-time for minimum wage would fail to qualify.
Remember this man is the Republican dream candidate. The future of the GOP.

Secaucus Fats, who qualifies as a family of three all by himself, should try living on $103 a week. He'd lose weight. I bet he spends that on lunch. Nah, his benefactors pay for it.

If he's the "future of the GOP" I'm all for it. When those mean-spirited corporate bootlickers are circling down the shitter I'll be cheering them like I would a daredevil riding the Wall Of Death.


New Jersey Senate president calls Gov. Christie ‘a rotten prick’

Ah, the gloves are coming off. Sounds like that guy has a good grip on a piston pin or a roll of quarters!

Don't get too excited over the NJ Senate president - as the linked-to article shows, he helped Christie pass a union-busting bill and then he got shafted by Christie anyway. I don't feel particularly sorry for him.

As for Christie and Medicaid, I'm almost speechless. How the heck could NJ voters elect him?

Maybe the senate prez'll learn not to trust that lyin' sacka shit Christie.
