Russell Pearce's "Psycho Talk" on AHCCCS
Schultz rips Pearce for his crazy talk on Brahm Resnik's Sunday Square-Off
Just another reminder of what the local Republinuts -- led by neo-Nazi-huggin' state Senate President-elect Russell Pearce -- have in mind for you one million-plus folks down on your luck, or those about to be in this economy: No Medicaid.
Pearce wants to cut it drastically, comparing it to a trip to Dillard's for a spending spree. As a result, the state will be kissing $7 billion in federal funding bye-bye.
MSNBC commentator Ed Schultz is right, it is psycho talk. And for at least the next two years (and probably the next four), with the state legislature solidly in the hands of wackjob right-wingers, psycho talk will be as common in Sand Land as prickly pears, snow birds, and bigots.
