Selective Secession

The Newly Minted King of Texas, celebrating his lifetime position on the peoples payroll, has come out with a novel way to selectively secede from the United States, claiming that opting out of Social Security the State of Texas can save  $60 billion.  King Perry states in his book “Fed Up! Our Fight to Save America From Washington,” that “I’ve got the best job in the world, and I want to keep it”.  Tom Petty says it best “It’s good to be King”.

King Perry and the Right Wing Aristocracy in Texas  desperatly wanting to keep their security on the people’s pauyroll, convienently omitted, prior to the election,  that Texas is looking at a bigger budget deficit than the left coasters they love to rail on.  To meet this deficit,  the Aristocracy Party’s seceder crowd lawmakers are proposing an unprecedented solution.

These far-right aritocrats are pushing the idea that  the state could save the state by dropping out of the federal Medicaid program.  Moderate Republicans who wish to be full members of the Aristoctrat Pary and not be thrown to the pitchfork crowd by being labeled, the nasty word RINO or worse yet “Liberal”, are studying the proposal behind closed doors.  The Aristocratic Louie the XVI’s party advisers on health care policy,  The Heritage Foundation, the aristocratic research organization, claims that Texas could save $60 billion from 2013 to 2019 by opting out of Medicaid and the Children€™s Health Insurance Program, dropping coverage for acute care but continuing to finance long-term care services.

The Aristocrat Party State Representative from Pampa, Warren Chisum who has entered the race for Speaker of the House states that €œWith Obamacare mandates coming down, we have a situation where we cannot reduce benefits or change eligibility€ to cut costs, said . €œThis system is bankrupting our state,€ he said. €œWe need to get out of it.  And with the budget shortfall we€™re anticipating, we may have to act this year.€

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission has 3.6 million children, people with disabilities and impoverished Texans enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP.  So in other words the Aristocrat Party’s new line is “Let them eat Cake”.
