carted off to the planet Zot, or something.

An elected state representative…has no idea what Medicaid is.

Now, it’s one thing to oppose Medicaid.  (It’s socialism/too costly/I refuse to pay taxes for anything that will help anyone but myself/blah, blah, blah…)

Is this another reason that enshrining ignorance is not the best idea?
