Dear North Carolina GOP,
We heard about the plan you rolled out to give health coverage to 300,000 of the working poor in North Carolina.
We just want you to know it’s alright, and that we’re proud of you. We know that when you bunch of young whippersnappers were using fancy buzzwords like “personal responsibility” and “restricting entitlements,” you didn’t really mean it.
You had probably just learned them from your kooky, old right-wing professor, who’s trying to turn all of you into fascists. But hey, we’re all a little idealistic at that age, right? I bet you even voted for Jeb Bush in the primary. Crazy kids.
It’s like you’ve been told all your life — once you get out into the real world, you’ll come back down to earth and your views will change. And that’s nothing to be ashamed of. This is a safe space.
