Obamacare is Punishment for Slavery?
After Congress passed the debt ceiling extension and reopened the government, the owner of Smokin’ Joe’s Ribhouse in Rogers, Arkansas, Johnny Howard, decided to make this public statement on the road sign outside of his restaurant:
The sign was up for approximately 45 minutes, and after it was taken down, Howard apologized and said:
It’s the policy and I made the mistake of wording it in the wrong fashion. The policy. It’s not the person it’s the policy, … To me this health care plan is a job killer. I myself will have to eliminate at least one location if all the policies that were written originally go through.
Okay, so a policy to grant people access to affordable healthcare is somehow a punishment for slavery??!!
I. Just. Can’t.
Also on today’s #TWiBRadio, #TeamBlackness discussed Republicans win … nothing, the House of Representatives Stenographer ain’t takin’ no more damn memos, and the punishment for slavery is … health insurance?
And this morning on #amTWiB, The Morning Crew discussed burning history for money, a Florida school named after a KKK “Grand Wizard” might actually get a name change, and Japanese wine for kitty cats.
And, in case you missed it, yesterday was my birthday and I may have had a couple of drinks to celebrate my transition out of the 25-34 demographic:
