Re: “Rep. Josh Miller, recipient of significant government assistance, opposes Medicaid expansion in Arkansas

They still have the same opportunities he had. It’s called Medicaid EXPANSION, they aren’t advocating cutting anything, and how do you suggest the EXPANSION is paid for?

Re: “Rep. Josh Miller, recipient of significant government assistance, opposes Medicaid expansion in Arkansas

Josh will freely admit that the accident that caused his injury was completely his fault, but instead of lying in bed and collecting a check, as I see so many others do, Josh worked hard at becoming a businessman and a contributor to society. I have no problem with my tax money going to someone who gets out of bed every morning, even if he has to pay someone to help him, and goes out and makes a difference.
All you people who are complaining because you didn’t get the assistance you thought you should have, blame the system, not Josh. I have been in Public Service for over 20 years and I have seen countless times where an able bodied person will walk up and down the street, fighting with their neighbors and when asked where they work, their answer is, “I’m disabled.”
Josh is the perfect example of, “If you want to work, you can work.” Josh is a quadriplegic and knows difficulty the rest of you couldn’t imagine. If you want to attack his past then go ahead, the past is the past. If you want to attack his morals and work ethic now, you might want to rethink it because you are out of your league.
The Medicaid expansion vote is just another example of the Democrats irresponsibly trying to pass legislation that they have no idea where the money will come from. The Republicans want to know how it will be paid for without tax increases. The Democrats saying, “We will continue to vote until this passes,” is like the playground bully fighting kids until he finally wins. There should be a limit to how many times a piece of legislation is brought to a vote.
