Opioid epidemic and Medicaid

 This is now working backwards. From Facebook

                                                                  



Listening to Sue Henry who has our representatives talking about the opioid epidemic and cuts in Medicaid. Apparently, those who support the philosophy of the Republican Party don't have relatives who have addictions or who are intellectually disabled or old. Well, aren't you a lucky buck. Have you got a solution to this problem? How to stop addiction, prevent intellectual disabilities and stop people from growing old? Other than needing revenue to finance it?
Come on now, you voted for Trump. Give me a solution. Bet you can't.-

A solution will be hard to find from that quarter for one simple reason: Many on the hard right view addiction as being a character flaw, something symptomatic of a weakness that just needs to be overcome.

Many also thing being poor is a character flaw almost synonymous with being a drug addict. Thus we get drug tests for benefits.
