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.
