GOPer to retirees: Move to Canada for your health care
Georgia Congressman Rob Woodall is a real Georgia peach. He's had it with whiny voters who expect big gummit to take care of them in their old age. When a constituent at a town hall meeting asked him what she was supposed to do about health insurance because her employer doesn't offer health care benefits into retirement Woodall told her to pay for her own damn health care:
"Hear yourself, ma'am. Hear yourself," Woodall told the woman. "You want the government to take care of you, because your employer decided not to take care of you. My question is, 'When do I decide I'm going to take care of me?'"And he added if she doesn't like that answer she should move to Canada or some other country with "soshulized" medicine.
"If you want a socialized health care program, there are lots of places to find that," he said. "But, for your children's sake, I beg you: There aren't many places to find the freedom to succeed by the sweat of your brow like we have here.”Spoken by a guy who has been dining on big government largess for years and will be well taken care of in his retirement with a hefty pension and a gold plated health insurance policy at the taxpayer's expense. Just peachy.
