Gregg Collett (R-ID) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Raw Story

A Republican candidate for the office of Idaho State Representative insists he is not a hypocrite for opposing Medicaid healthcare coverage for the poor while his children benefit from the program.

NBC News reported earlier this month that Greg Collett, a 41-year-old software developer, has 10 children. Most of those children are enrolled in Medicaid — a federal program he wants to abolish.

Collett said he received a lot of negative feedback due to the report. In a lengthy statement published on his website, he admitted, “Yes, I participate in government programs of which I adamantly oppose.”

“For those of you who insist that I take my kids of Medicaid [sic], please feel free to get them off by terminating the entire program. I would be the most thrilled if that were to happen since, as with all public welfare programs, it should not exist,” he wrote.
