Unless he is running for POTUS I don't see any benefit from his perspective for his saying no to this medicaid Federal Handout.
Seems that if he turned it down in effect blocking the working poor single Moms and their kids from health insurance from the Feds he would be despised in his state.
After all he can look back at the DC house Rs the past two years who repealed O care >20 times and then lost seats, and the law still stands without a scratch.
Ever see Eastwood's movie Letters from Iwo Jima ?
I recall they told the island Japanese commander that they had no ship support for them, no more weapons and they were taking away the remaining planes to Japan, and no more ammunition either, as Americans are preparing to invade the Island.
So what did they send? A message telling them they expected them to die with honor, and a recording of a group of Japanese children singing “little Island Iwo Jima, only you can save Japan” to keep them going.
You wont find Republicans willing to do that.
Talk radio is like that inspiring message, its their game.
You’re talking about literal suicide, which this simply wouldn’t be. If you wanna allegorize stories of Japan in WWII, what about how they agreed to basically the exact same terns of surrender that eventually settled the war before Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Washington said naw, we’d rather nuke you a couple times if it’s all the same to you. That’s basically what Pubs get by playing the welfare game.
By the way, maybe it’s not about wgat’ll benefit him. Someone, somewhere, at some point is gonna hafta say no on principle, or we’re all doomed.
