If they get sick they can become Christian Scientists and rely
on faith healing to fix themselves. It's what Mary Baker Eddy
wanted and it's a made in America Religion, not some bullshit
from Europe or The Middle East forced down our throats by
America haters. Why should my premiums or taxes pay for your
Republican congressman thinks some Americans just dont want
Representative Roger Marshall is a longtime obstetrician who
won a Kansas House seat least year and joined the GOP Doctors
Caucus. But in an interview Friday with the medical news
publication STAT, the anti-Obamacare doctor made a major
misdiagnosis of Americas health care system.
Just like Jesus said, The poor will always be with us, he
said. There is a group of people that just dont want health
care and arent going to take care of themselves.
The congressman went on to blame Americans on Medicaid for
Just, like, homeless people. I think just morally,
spiritually, socially, [some people] just dont want health
care, he said. The Medicaid population, which is [on] a
free credit card, as a group, do probably the least
preventive medicine and taking care of themselves and
eating healthy and exercising. And Im not judging, Im
just saying socially thats where they are. So theres a
group of people that even with unlimited access to health
care are only going to use the emergency room when their
arm is chopped off or when their pneumonia is so bad they
get brought [into] the ER.
Jesus, of course, wouldnt have said any of this. But for a
member of a Republican Congress hell bent on repealing health
care, its not entirely off script.
