GOP Senator Tom Cotton: “Able-Bodied Poor People Don’t Deserve Medicaid”

Raw Story reports:

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) on Sunday called on “able-bodied” poor people to be removed from Medicaid. CNN host Jake Tapper noted during an interview on State of the Union that Republican governors had criticized House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) plan to repeal Obamacare because it would reduce funds for Medicaid, leaving millions without medical coverage.

Cotton declared that many people on Medicaid should be purchasing their own insurance instead. “Medicaid is a welfare program,” he said. “It’s primarily designed for the indigent, elderly, the disabled, the blind and children.” “It’s not designed for able-bodied adults,” Cotton continued. “We want to get those people off of Medicaid, into a job and into market-based insurance.”

Able-bodied congressman don’t deserve marked down health insurance either, they earn enough money in their grossly inflated salaries to pay for it themselves.

Of Mice and Men character study GOP Rep. Tom Cotton (R) on CNN yesterday urged everyone who is in their right minds who and irate over both Indiana’s and Arkansas’ “religious freedom” law to chillax and get some  “perspective,” suggesting the treatment of LGBT people in Indiana is nothing  compared to countries where gay people are executed.

“I think it’s important we have a sense of perspective,” Cotton said. “In Iran they hang you for the crime of being gay.”

Cotton then went back to daydreaming about a farm in the country with bunny rabbits.
