Rob Woodall (R-GA) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Huffington Post

WASHINGTON — Rep. Rob Woodall, a Georgia Republican, made a vigorous ideological defense of ending Medicare as it currently exists, telling seniors at a local town hall that they ought not look to the government to provide health care for the elderly just because their private employer doesn’t offer health benefits for retirees.

A Woodall constituent raised a practical obstacle to obtaining coverage in the private market within the confines of an employer-based health insurance system: What happens when you retire?

“The private corporation that I retired from does not give medical benefits to retirees,” the woman told the congressman in video captured a local Patch reporter in Dacula, Ga.

“Hear yourself, ma’am. Hear yourself,” Woodall told the woman. “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?'”

” Hear yourself, ass-hole!”

The lady DID MAKE PLANS; and the plan was for her to use HER medicare when she retired; which by the way, she has been paying ‘becoup bucks’ into for YEARS!

NOW, if you want to change the system, by privatising for it for young workers; knock yourself out.

But you and Ryan and the other GOP ass-holes, should STOP fuckin’ with people!

personal note:

I retired early.

And because COBRA was prohibitively expensive, and I KNEW someday they would f-up Medicare; I decided to live in Thailand.

Here I have FULL coverage, for life; and if you are under 60, so can you.

  1. This guy is unbelieveable. The conceit. “Hear yourself.”? Where does he get off?
    First of all I dont know of any companies giving out coverage anymore, especially if you leave. Your LUCKY if you get health benefits let alone retirement. The only companies that do that are unions and the GOP has run them into the ground hoping they die out. Which they are.
    So, his answer basically is “Dont look to the government for shit and if your company doesnt offer it we cant help you either.” So, what the fuck does the government want from us. Were just supposed to hand over our tax dollers and shut up about it and we get nothing back for it? Thats OUR money! Sure, only the sugar companies and the armament companies get welfare, HUGE subsities while we can go begging after they have sucked us dry. Well, what did that elderly lady expect when she went to a GOP town hall? Did she actually think they are going to be sympathetic to her concerns?? The stupidity of my fellow country men never ceases to amaze me. Folks : ITS OUR MONEY!!! ITS OUR MONEY!!! ITS OUR MONEY!!! EXPECT MORE FOR YOUR DOLLARS!!!! THEY WORK FOR YOU!!! Our politicians i am sure laugh up their sleeves at us daily, most especially since they gave wall street a slap on the wrist. Were homeless, out of work, and left to get sick and die with no coverage. The rest of the civilized world LAUGHS at us. Our government is a joke and the GOPers are fucking the lunatic, rich, fringe. I guess if the went arount in white wigs and 1700 french outfits THAT would get the point across?? The power elite people. The french aristocracy didnt exactly give a shit about the people either, GET IT?? Its really not all that difficult to understand once you wake up and smell the elitist coffee folks. The birthers and the tea party and the abortion rights is to keep you nicely distracted. Pfffft!!!!!
