Another Representative Marie Antoinette

Republican Congressman Roger Marshall is from Kansas. He's a doctor, and he's working on the Obamacare replacement bill. From this morning's Washington Post...

“Just like Jesus said, ‘The poor will always be with us,’ ” Marshall said in response to a question about Medicaid, which expanded under Obamacare to more than 30 states. “There is a group of people that just don’t want health care and aren’t going to take care of themselves.”

He added that “morally, spiritually, socially,” the poor, including the homeless, “just don’t want health care.”

Okey doke, Congressman Marshall. You might want to check out what happened to Marie Antoinette when she expressed similar empathy back in 1789.
