He could have said it differently by saying that he had a lot of POOR ppl in his state on medicaid (black & white). the message would have been the same. I don't know why those southerners always have to talk like that.

Senator Graham speaks the truth. Is Medicaid available in SC? He should put a stop to that. Too much wasting of money. C'mon, senator. Get together with fellow Senator Jim "Waterloo" DeMint and Rep. Joe "You Lie" Wilson to put a stop on low-income and dirt-poor families - especially the black ones - leeching state and federal resources. Health care is for those that can afford it. End Medicaid now! STOP WASTEFUL SPENDING!!

I'm sorry, are you serious?

Only people who can afford health care should receive health care?

Really and truly? This isn't sarcasm or something?

If you truly mean this than no words I could say would be enough to either open your mind and heart.....or express the disdain with which I hold someone who thinks this way.

What does that mean? I don't get the meaning of sticking out your tongue at someone in the course of a discussion. I'm old. There are a lot of things I don't get.
