Calling Out the Gov.: Thompson Has Things to Say About Medicaid Expansion, Republicans
WASHINGTON, D.C.–If you oppose ObamaCare, it’s because the president is black, is essentially what Congressman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) told a radio host this weekend on a New Nation of Islam program. He also had unflattering things to say about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky).
Thompson specifically called out Gov. Phil Bryant, a Republican, for refusing to consider expanding Medicaid.
“Not only did this man turn it down, but he turned down resources that could have helped his citizens just because a black man created it,” said Thompson.
He said Bryant could have used expansion to help Mississippians who suffer from “some of the worst health problems known to man”.
