Trying hard not to roll my eyes too much.
People in poverty-stricken Clay County [Kentucky] worry about what will happen to their health care if Gov. Matt Bevin's and President-elect Trump's ambitions to overhaul Medicaid proceed.
In Clay County, 60 percent of residents are covered by Medicaid. They voted for Republican Matt Bevin 71-27, and for Donald Trump 86-11. Neither Bevin, nor Trump, made their opposition to Obamacare secret.
So how does that happen? Because of shit like this:
"If anything changed with our insurance to make it more expensive for us, that would be a big problem," [Lisa] Botner, a community college student, said Friday at the Owsley County Public Library, where she works. "Just with the blood tests, you're talking maybe $1,000 a year without insurance."
But then ol’ Lisa Botner voted GOP.
"I'm just a die-hard Republican," she said
Moron. And don’t tell me this was about economic insecurity, because she literally voted to make her economic situation more insecure. It’s what happens when racism and xenophobia trump economic self-interest.
