Look, I may be agnostic, but I'm pretty sure Jesus did not say the poor should eat shit and die.
In an interview with STAT, Rep. Roger Marshall (R-KS) says he doesn’t support Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion because he believes some poor people just don’t want health care.
“Just like Jesus said, ‘The poor will always be with us,’” Marshall, a doctor and first-term congressman, said. “There is a group of people that just don’t want health care and aren’t going to take care of themselves.”
It's been decades since the last time I sat in a church pew or Sunday school, but I can't seem to recall that time Jesus said we should deny poor people access to healthcare. I believe healing the sick, feeding the hungry, and clothing the poor was more his style. But then again, I never read the gospels of Free Market Jesus.
Representative Marshall is a member of GOP's Doctors Caucus, a collection of cognitively dissonant men who apparently took an oath to do as much harm as possible.
