It Should Bother You

Recently a lady came by to get her meds. 

She’s on Medicaid. Medicaid is for people who can’t afford their medication. The taxpayer (that's you and me) fund her medications.

In her purse sitting on top is a pack of smokes and a pile of “scratchers.” For those of you who don't know, "scratchers" are lottery tickets. They cost a dollar or two each, and she had a lot of them.

No matter how you want to look at this, what it boils down to is that she somehow has money to blow on lottery tickets but not for medication.

If this doesn’t bother you, it should.
