Hey, are you a senior citizen who worked and paid taxes all your life but could use some help paying for your insulin? If he had his way, GOP Representative Rob Woodall of Georgia would wish you well with your diabetes.
“Hear yourself, ma’am. Hear yourself. You want the government to take care of you, because your employer decided not to take care of you. My question is, ‘When do I decide I’m going to take care of me?'”
He has huge cojones to say this to his constituent. He works for the government. The government is taking care of him. His future pension and health plan ensures he will never have to worry about having to choose between food and medicine.
On the clip, people were cheering when he said that. Pretty easy when you’re younger and can still work. I wonder how they’ll feel when they’re older and on a fixed income.
Watch the clip, and you’ll also hear this gem:
“If you want a socialized health care program, there are lots of places to find that. But, for your children’s sake, I beg you: There aren’t many places to find the freedom to succeed by the sweat of your brow like we have here.”
Not only would he wish you well, you can move if you don’t like how things work here. What a guy.
