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.
