Georgia gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams raised eyebrows throughout the state Sunday; saying she was “sick and tired” of hearing about “free market” solutions to help lower healthcare costs for Americans.
Abrams was speaking with supporters Sunday when she slammed the “free market” as a method of reducing premiums for Georgia’s residents; claiming “I’ve never seen the free market write a prescription in rural Georgia.”
“I am sick and tired of hearing about the free market being the solution to this problem because I’ve never seen the free market write a prescription in rural Georgia,” Abrams told the crowd. “I’ve never seen the free market show up and give someone Metformin so they can have a little bit of control of their diabetes before it turns into an amputation of their foot.”
“I’ve never seen the free market say ‘I’m going to replace that stint in your heart next door and not make you go 200 miles to get it done,'” Abrams added. “The problem with the free market is the free market needs to make a profit, and there is no profit in doing the right thing.”
SLIP OF THE TONGUE? Georgia Dem Admits ‘Blue Wave’ Includes ‘Undocumented’ Voters
Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams raised eyebrows throughout the state over the weekend; bizarrely admitting the predicted “blue wave” requires all voters -including those without “documentation.”
Abrams was speaking during a campaign rally late-last week when she commented on the progressives’ prospects of retaking control of Congress this fall; saying the “blue wave” was comprised of “those who are documented and undocumented.”
“But the thing of it is, the blue wave is African-American. It’s white, it’s Latino, it’s Asian Pacific Islander. It is disabled. It is differently abled. It is LGBTQ. It is law enforcement. It is veterans,” Abrams said to cheers. “It is made up of those who are told they are not worthy of being here … those who are documented and undocumented.”
ARMAGEDDON AGAIN: Pelosi Says ‘CIVILIZATION AT RISK’ in 2018 Midterms
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi doubled-down on her anti-Trump rhetoric this week, saying “civilization as we know it as at risk” should the Republicans continue to lead Congress following the 2018 midterm elections.
Pelosi was speaking with Rolling Stone magazine when she was asked to comment on how the Democrats were prepared to flip districts won by President Trump in 2016; saying “How do you narrow it down?”
“Civilization as we know it today is at risk in this election. We have to win. We have to win. So you can’t spread your money too thinly, because you can run the risk,” said the leading Democrat.
“If the election were today – no question we would win. But you have to be aware of the undercurrents. Because you don’t know what can come along – and what comes along eclipses what you’re doing,” she added.
Pelosi’s comments come as the over-hyped “blue wave” predicted for this November continues to crash and burn, with some polls showing the once double-digit Democrat advantage reduced to just a few points.
