North Carolina Republican Keep 500,000 Low Income Individuals From Getting Health Care Insurance

And Here’s What They Have to Say About It

[News That Didn’t Happen, But Could Have]

The transition of North Carolina from a forward thinking moderate southern state into Alabama continues, with the Republican controlled government declining to allow 500,000 individual access to Medicaid, coverage that would be paid for by the Federal government.  Here’s what they had to say about it in an exclusive interview that didn’t happen.

DPE:  What was the single most important factor in your decision to keep these individual from getting Medicaid?

North Carolina Conservative:   They are poor people. And since God is the Creator of everything, if God didn’t want them to be poor He would not have made them poor.  So allowing poor people to have access to health care is defeating God’s will.

DPE:  Uh, doesn’t God support decent treatment for all?

North Carolina Conservative:  Well yes, and He manifests his will by having the state of North Carolina provide health care insurance for all of us Republicans legislators.  We deserve it.  They don’t.

DPE:  How much money will this save the citizens of North Carolina?

North Carolina Conservative:    Well none, because the Feds would have paid for all of it in the first few years.  In fact this will probably cost the state money since some of these deadbeat poor people will somehow get to Emergency Rooms where bleeding heart hospitals will treat them.  But that’s not the money that is the issue, principle is at work here.

DPE:  What principle is that?

North Carolina Conservative:   If you cannot afford health care treatment you have no business getting sick.  That’s just irresponsible behavior.

DPE:  Do Republicans in North Carolina have an alternative in mind for low income people who will not have access to Medicaid?

North Carolina Conservative:  Absolutely.  We are going to make private insurance plans post their programs on the Web, and poor people can pick any one of those.

DPE:  But those programs are unregulated and may cost over $1,000.00 per month.  How can low income people afford them?

North Carolina Conservative  That’s the beauty of the free enterprise system.  If they cannot afford something they don’t get it.  Get it?

DPE:  Uh no.
