I want to kick a few dozen Republicans off a speeding train, starting with Josh Miller of Arkansas.

In this post: Hypocrites.

Sometimes I get so damn mad I want to kick a few dozen Republicans off a speeding train. I didn’t plan to write a second post today but just ran across a new candidate for Putz of the Week that couldn’t wait until tomorrow.

Meet Josh Miller, age 33, a representative in the Arkansas state legislature. After Miller was paralyzed in a catastrophic car wreck eleven years ago — joy-riding drunk in a pickup truck with a friend — Medicare and Medicaid paid more than $1 million for his hospitalization and rehabilitation because he was uninsured. So you’ll probably be dumbfounded to learn that Miller, a right-wing Republican, OPPOSES  MEDICAID EXPANSION in Arkansas under the Affordable Care Act.
When the Arkansas Times asked Miller about the appalling contradiction, he responded that some of the 100,000 people who would qualify for coverage through Arkansas’ Medicaid expansion program “don’t work hard enough” or “just want access to the program so they can purchase and abuse prescription drugs.”

Holy mother of crap.

So I want you to do exactly what I did about 15 minutes ago: SEND AN EMAIL TO THIS ARROGANT LITTLE DIRTBAG. Suggested text follows:

I have a great idea. Since you don’t support Medicaid expansion for the citizens of Arkansas I think you should repay the million you personally sucked from the taxpayers of the United States. HOW DARE YOU.

With no sincerity whatsoever,
Your Name Here

And here’s Miller’s email address:

This assclown is basically on equal footing with Greg Collett, a Howdygram Putz of the Week honoree from last October. Collett was the Tea Party’s candidate for a seat in the Idaho legislature who ran on a platform that called for dismantling all government services — including Medicaid — even though he admitted that his 10 children are enrolled in the program. TEN CHILDREN! (See previous post.)

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
