when illegals and ghetto trash show up at the ER, with no insurance, they should be give a couple of aspirin, and directions to the bus station, and a voucher for free transportation back to the border.

Black unemployment at an all time low under the Trump Administration. That should get many African Americans off the gubmint teat thereby slowing Medicaid as a corollary.

I suppose dying in the meantime counts as an "escape" from poverty.

How do you help people escape poverty?
If you believe Republicans, you make sure they get jobs.
If you believe Democrats, you make sure they get phones.

Two replies, both from Democrat sympathizers.
Both ridiculing and neither offering anything substantive as an alternative.

Any wonder why they believe the Democrats represent them?

I pointed out you're an ignorant liar about the "free phones" program. That was Reagan's, not Obama's. The reason you told that ignorant lie is the same reason animating most of your posts - you're a lying white supremacist who doesn't know anything.

Now, of course you don't find my reply helpful or instructive. It's fact based.

Still nothing constructive to offer, I see.
Not surprised.
Why would a Progressive want to slow Medicaid spending, especially if it involved helping people escape poverty?

Has this person ever had anything constructive to offer? And, as for fact based? In a pig‘s eye. Free phones were Reagan‘s idea, not Obama‘s? Cell phones, if there even were any during Reagan‘s presidency, were a novelty and coverage was spotty, due to there being so few towers. They didn‘t even start advertising the free phones on TV until after Obama became president. I know several people who have these phones. Guess what they call them? Obama phones!

So, your solution to slow Medicaid spending is to reduce the cost of dog and cat food.
