And then we’ll need to pay hundreds of millions every year after so able bodied adults, many of whom don’t work, can get free health insurance.
Question. Where do you want to get the money, Senator Stein? Whose taxes do you want to raise? Do you want to use the money we would have used to raise teacher salaries? Or maybe Senator Stein, the champion of free benefits for able bodied adults who don’t work, will do what he did in 2009 during the recession. He voted to cut Medicaid home care for the frail elderly and disabled children. Aren’t they the people who need help?
Promising free benefits might make a politician popular. Only take doesn’t make it right.
