  •  If Medicaid is "the only practical way to get... (10+ / 0-)

    health care for my kids" it might be good if someone were to ask him why that might happen to be the case. And what he'd propose as an alternative. Oh wait..."go to your family" (Didn't Romney suggest that? Didn't some clueless Teabagger suggest something similar to federal employees who were struggling during the shutdown [or was it Ted Cruz?]). "Go to your church." Because EVERYONE belongs to a church? Because churches have unlimited sums of money to distribute? That money's gotta come from somewhere.

      ... then that 10% tithe will have to go up - way up. Then would our Libertarian friends go all gaga about increasing tithe rates? Would they institute a flat tithe rate or would it be progressive? Oops, I forgot, progressive and Libertarian in the same sentence - heresy! Oh, I can hear the squeals of all those Libbies - "How can you give my hard earned money to those poor people?! Those people don't deserve MY tithes! Let them get help from the gubmint!"
