NC Speaker Tillis: Divide and Conquer! (Moms, kids and people in wheelchairs)

NC Speaker of the House Thom Tillis has a novel idea to take the heat off Republicans for his billion-dollar-a-year cuts to the NC Medicaid program. Get the folks in wheelchairs on Medicaid to “look down on” and resent the moms and kids on Medicaid.  Fostering hatred and resentment over who gets health care – always a winning strategy!

What do you you do when that government no longer serves the people as a whole, but only the wealthiest? You remove them through the ballot box, and that time is near.

    Just think about this: In 1930, the Jews in Germany didn’t know what horrors the Republicans, er Nazis were going to unleash upon them.
