This bitch is disgusted by the number of Missouri children who are at risk because they have no healthcare coverage...and my ass is only more disgusted that talking heads prefer to debate lipstick and pig.
Longtime readers know that a bitch has no love for outgoing Missouri Governor Matt Blunt. The freakish experiment in nepotistic drama that was Blunt’s rise to power has taken a serious toll on my home state….and left this bitch wishing Daddy Blunt had found some D.C. based pencil pushing position to install his fucked up from the floor up son in to.
But Missouri can’t blame the entire 44% rise in the number of uninsured Missouri children on Gov. Blunt’s gleeful slashing of Medicaid funding.
He’s a fuck up, for sure…but some of this is due to the fact that Missouri is hemorrhaging jobs and unemployment is soaring and parents without private healthcare through their employers can’t insure their children.
Unemployment in Missouri is at a 16 year high…the national economic crisis is hitting home here and people looking for income must weigh the need for healthcare against the need for shelter and food.
Missouri is writhing under the impact of complete GOP control of our state on top of the GOP’s federal failure to manage the economy.
And trust that Senator McCain offers nothing but more cuts and a Hoover-esque hands off approach to the economy that will have the same nightmarish results.
Shit rolls downhill, picks up speed and usually crashes down on the masses locally. Someone somewhere may want to start asking those specifics avoiding maverick broncos why they are allergic to funding domestic policies and why they speak of reform yet support a political posture that will continue to send what little money we have elsewhere and why their values fail to value hard working American families.
That’s where we are at, y’all…Missouri sure as shit ain’t alone in this…and a new outfit of bedazzled maverick-based bullshit spin followed by a full makeover at the MAC counter won’t make this pig pretty…
