City of Great Bend, Barton County, Kansas




Congressman Roger Marshall, Kansas Great Bend doctor

Wants to be Kansas Senator. Sad man that calls the working poor immoral and would cut their health care because he doesn't like them. Gee, single parent with two jobs has to wait until arm gets chopped off to take time from work to go to ER. Bad parent. You should pay your maid to watch the kids. Right. Privilege and power.

"Just, like, homeless people.... I think just morally, spiritually, socially, [some people] just don't want health care," he said. "The Medicaid population, which is [on] a free credit card, as a group, do probably the least preventive medicine and taking care of themselves and eating healthy and exercising. And I'm not judging, I'm just saying socially that's where they are. So there's a group of people that even with unlimited access to health care are only going to use the emergency room when their arm is chopped off or when their pneumonia is so bad they get brought [into] the ER."
