    Remember the Republican motto "The rich can do more with more, while the poor can do more with less".

    I'm Georgia-born and raised, let me tell you....

    There will be a loud wailing and gnashing of teeth when Medicare & Medicaid get the axe. But, hey...

    It's what THEY (not me) voted for.

    Not just the poor, their policies show a clear contempt of anyone with a net worth under a million dollars.

    They don't need health care when they can just pray themselves healed.

    They do pretty well with the 6 figure and working professional crowd.

    With the Russia investigation becoming more intense and the GOP morphing into the party of P3dobear/Pu$$y-grab...

    They sure will...

    I voted for Trump hoping these programs would be cut. Too much funding goes into both Medicare and Medicaid and it’s time for change. They really do more harm than good. Medicaid is especially a disgusting program that promotes laziness.

    The amount of money spent on diabetes treatment, something that is largely treatable by good diet and exercise, is astounding.

    The problem with healthcare in America is that the people are too fucking fat and it's only getting worse. There's no way the government can do anything about that.

    Something like 50% of Americans either have diabetes or pre-diabetes.

    The cuts themselves aren't exactly what bother me so much. It's that they cut taxes for the rich, then say the poor need to pay the difference. The rich are already well off, yet they get all the breaks, while the poor keep getting screwed again and again.

    I actually want these programs to be trimmed with the plan to eventually dissolve them, so this isn't a problem for me. I made a thread about the shortcomings of the tax plan, and I'm not a big fan of it. But no is not reflective of the other.

    This is not a Republican issue; it's both a Democrat and Republican swamp critter issue.

    It's a predatory style of capitalism that needs to be reformed; one without influence from a certain group.
