Sen. Kit Bond, a one time opponent of expanding Medicaid via Obamacare and now it’s chief lobbyist in Missouri, teamed up with Sen. Ryan Silvey in using veterans as the case for expansion:
The uninsured population in Missouri includes more than 50,000 veterans and their family members, according to the statement released by Bond’s lobbying firm, Kit Bond Strategies of Columbia, Mo. About half of the veterans and their family members could be eligible for Medicaid if it were expanded, based on a study by the Urban Institute.
Discover the Networks notes that the Urban Institute “favors socialized health care, expansion of federal welfare bureaucracy, and tax hikes for higher income-earners.” Oh, it’s funded by George Soros, among other leftist organizations.
That’s nice. Good to know where Bond is getting his propaganda.
However, there’s a problem with the premise, though. It’s a logical fallacy:
Saying “It’s for the veterans” is no different than when liberals whine “Think of the children.”
Which means Bond and Silvey have become Helen Lovejoy.
Premise: Missouri can’t afford to expand Medicaid. We can’t fully fund education now.
