And in so doing, deprives hundreds of thousands of people a chance to get health care. Almost nobody is even trying to pretend otherwise. It’s. A. Fucking. Bribe:
The Republican Party in Virginia has resorted to what appears to be outright bribery in its ongoing effort to deny low-income residents in the state access to the Medicaid expansion authorized by Obamacare.
The Washington Post reported Sunday that Republicans offered to move Democratic state Sen. Phillip P. Puckett and his daughter into prestigious jobs in exchange for Puckett’s resignation, which will flip the chamber into Republican hands. Puckett officially accepted the offer on Monday, but then appeared to back away amid a public outcry.
Puckett the Scumbucket is backing away from cashing in on his own bribe at the time of this writing, but his scumbucket daughter is still on track to collect her silver: an appointment to a prestigious judgeship. The Scumbucket Pucketts totally fucked 400,000 hard-working poor people in order to line their own pockets. Period. End of story.
Really? No, I mean, seriously, really? The scumbucket Pucketts are condemning nearly a half-million Virginians to misery or death, just to cash in for their greedy-assed selves. May they, and the Republicans who bribed them, burn in Hell.
