Michigan Senate Really Does Hate the Working Poor

images[6]Michigan GOP Senators gave a resounding “fuck you” to the working poor, the children and senior citizens of the state when they chose to adjourn this afternoon without passing medicaid expansion. They went home to their respective districts for a little R&R, all on the taxpayer dime (and their corporate contributors), for a political season in the sun, as part and parcel of their gross dereliction of duty in the service of Michigan. 

They refused to do the right thing for their constituents.

The AP reports that Gov. Snyder was even begging them to grow-up and grow a pair, or… “take a vote, not a vacation“. Snyder went on to say “I’m asking each and every Michigander: Every time you see a Republican senator…you step up and say ‘Please step up and take a vote, not a vacation’ isn’t that what we deserve to move forward?”

Even Democracy Tree is stunned by this turn of events.

    Are you blind?

    WHOM do you think was pimping HARD for the expansion. Its was those corporate whores you so despise. You guys really need to pay attention.

    My friends and I met with Mike Nofs on Wednesday, to ask him to please consider voting yes on Medicaid expansion. His reasons for voting no simply defy logic. He said a) we’re already taking care of the poor (which I refuted as I know many poor people whose health insurance is non existent or sub-par) b) so where does it stop? (My friend says, stop when everyone has affordable health care, but he didn’t listen) and c) something about the federal government not following through on promises made. How is this a reason to vote no on a federally funded source of help for Michigan citizens???

    They have always hated the poor and the middle class. Union or non-union it doesn’t matter to them (though they really loathe unions). They are part of romney’s bain capital 1% group. It’s all they care about. Their goal is to destroy the middle class and reap the benefits for themselves and their cronies in crime. This has been clear since the sainted ronnie was in office. It’s just out in the open now. But now they have no place to hide and in 2014 snyder will become a one-term nerd and he will take bolger and slimeyville with him. And it doesn’t matter how much devos spends or the koch brothers or the wacks at the mackinac center. We proved it in 2012 and we will do it again in 2014 and 2016. Democrats only 2014 and 2016.
