The gofunme site for the sheriff who fought against the ACA.  Note that most of the donations are from liberals, gays, etc.  Ain't karma frustrating?


Yep and almost none from conservatives - guess we have clearly been shown which people have sympathy even for the kind of people who would gleefully imprison them for their beliefs and equally clearly from whence the milk of human kindness issues - and does not.


And the conservatives are, well being conservatives.  Greedy as all get-out.  Check out this page:

Sounds like a poster on this forum.....no need to post his name, but recall the comments he made about the woman that Korder left with a child and nothing else.

I guess he would rather  die, beg for money, or just stiff all his health care providers then go buy insurance though the ACA.

 

Personally I wouiln't  give him a dime to save his pride.

 

I'm willing to subsidize his insurance though the ACA with my tax dollars though.

It's interesting that he could have taken the ACA which would have prevented him from going into such debt that he has to beg for money. Most people who fiercely oppose certain programs that are there to help the average citizens don't realize that they can be in a position where they desperately need help. Now he'll probably have to go through any savings that he has, lose a home and then declare bankruptcy. Maybe he should call the wealthy GOP people that he voted for and ask for help. What his family and friends can donate to him will only be a drop in the bucket. Now he's seeing the pitfalls of wanting less government in his life.

What a ridiculous conclusion; just because the GOP doesn't support Obamacare, doesn't mean they're recommending people not get their own health insurance .. just the opposite!


Health Insurance is supplied to govt workers in their home state so these people turned it down and now they are getting just what they wanted. Now we find they really did want coverage and are trying to get it by begging. Yes the far right has been telling people not to purchase coverage in the far right states. Let them be treated just as they asked to be. No coverage, and no help until they renounce their prior stand on health insurance and agree to spend time getting people to sign up, then help them pay their expenses.

  HUH?   Take of the Rose colored glasses:    That is exactly what the GOP have been saying:   Don't sign up for Healthcare Insurance / ACA - depend on charity.  

 

     When an individual cannot afford  private healthcare insurance what are these folks supposed to do?     And if there is no specific donations to your cause (gofundme) - then what?   

 

     One Senator created their own program - $800K spent - 40 sign-ups.

      How quickly some forget what they don't want to be reminded of ( cough, Bachmann, cough).

Seems odd that those who attack and fight something can suddenly need it and are forced to beg for relief.  This happens with those who fight against gay rights until one of their children comes out and they suddenly support gay rights.  Seems like Karma caught up to this extremist.
