Let’s face the dog whistle about ACA/Obamacare and how these right wingers see it.

They are OK with socialized medicine for themselves and how they see their kind - i.e. white, god fearing tax payers who run America and are the real Americans.

They think all other forms of national mandated healthcare will be a tax on the whites to support the minorities who they view as shiftless and lazy (and gets into the women’s birth control because they feel they will be paying for women having bastard babies - probably with black men).

I know that is harsh, etc, But at this stage I feel the racist angle is the only one to explain this world view by the remaining right wingers.

re: #1 Destro

I agree, Destro, about the racist angle. The first thing Lindsey Graham mentioned as an objection to the ACA was that SC has many blacks without access to affordable healthcare. He conveniently forgot about the fact that there are poor whites in SC who also don’t have access to affordable healthcare, but he didn’t dare mention them because they make up a large portion of the SC GOP’s base. Republicans do this on every issue from healthcare to Social Security and food assistance programs. The truth is that a majority of Americans who benefit from our social safety net programs are White Americans. I’m black, and I have no objection to this if these people need the assistance, but unfortunately, many republicans don’t feel the same way about minorities who receive the same assistance.

Hey, even the Governor of Idaho, who previously signed an executive order blocking the implementation of the ACA in Idaho, has now signed on to setting up the exchanges.

Don’t tell The Citadel! Heh.
