Our Idaho Republican legislators, who pride themselves on being fine, upstanding Christians, should be prosecuted for premeditated crimes against humanity in denying Idaho residents access to basic health care insurance for purely political reasons. Money is not the issue. They considered an income tax cut this year.
These so-called fine, upstanding Christians are nothing but bullies and thugs whose cruel and draconian actions are inexcusable. Make no mistake about it. This is deliberate, cruel and unusual punishment against an entire class of innocent people who just happen to be poor. Animal cruelty is a crime in Idaho but human cruelty seems to be acceptable.
These Republican legislators deserve no respect from us. They deserve to be treated as criminals. I wonder what Jesus would think if he could see all of this unnecessary suffering going on. I think he would be appalled to have these hypocrites invoking his name while they practiced their inhumanity toward these innocent citizens.
