Gov McCrory reads to 3rd graders tomorrow; will he deny their parents Medicaid health care before the event or after?

Governor Pat McCrory tweeted this afternoon he’ll be reading to 3rd graders in Flat Rock in Henderson County tomorrow.   There are 13,000 adults ages 19-64 in Henderson who don’t have health insurance, including many parents.   A vast majority of these uninsured people will be blocked from qualifying for Obamacare since McCrory intends to sign the bill blocking federal money to cover more citizens under our Medicaid program.  McCrory may be reading “Oh the Places You’ll Go,” but one of the places poorer kids’ parents won’t be going is to the doctor.

    NC PRISIONERS HAVE THERE MEDICAL NEEDS MEET AT THE TAX PAYERS EXPENSE. SO WHY SHOULD THE TAX PAYERS OUT WORKING AND TRYING TO GET BY BUT JUST FALL SHORT HAVE TO SUFFER.IF WE CANT HAVE MEDICAL THEY SHOULD NOT EITHER.

    Donna’s post is far from a cheap shot but rather a statement that reflects her’s and others lived experience with the healthcare system.

    The real cheap shot came from the mouth of President Bush in 2007: “… people have access to health care in America,” he said. “After all, you just go to an emergency room.”
