Why is it racist to require a photo ID? Well because the poor are more likely to be of certain racial or ethnic groups and the poor are less likely to own a car or have other easy transportation. They are also less likely to have a stable address. Yet, ObamaCare either requires you have a computer, or go to a few sparse and undependable centers for registering, or to undergo an exchange of mailings which tends to depend upon a stable address. It clearly discriminates against the poor by the criteria of the left.
Now many of the poor will qualify for Medicaid in those 26 states that chose to expand Medicaid under the PPACA or ObamaCare law. How do they apply for that Medicaid once they find out they qualify for it?
- Go to your Social Security, health department, or social services office.
- Produce a birth certificate or a passport
- Produce your Social Security card
- Produce a utility bill with your address on it
- Provide a recent paycheck or a tax return
- Provide a photo ID
As is usual for Progressive Elitist programs for the poor, it is all a pretense and there is no actual concern for the poor. Yet, the existence of the programs is supposed to fool everyone into believing that they care, while those of us who point out the absurdity of the programs are claimed to be uncaring and racists by criteria the Progressive Elitist laws themselves require.
