Walmart in Arizona 1. Walmart employees in Arizona 0.

So the AZ Senate Appropriations Committee voted to defund AHCCCS. That should make a lot of conservative Arizonans happy. After all, as I’ve been told ad infinitem, Those PeopleTM are to blame for all our fiscal woes, what with their promiscuous use of public services.

I have no sympathy for people who don’t pay their way in life.

Said Sen. Ron Gould, as he voted against Medicaid in Arizona.

Really? Everyone who gets public assistance isn’t working? Um, hardly. Most people who qualify for Medicaid, food stamps, and various other public assistance programs are working very hard. They work at places like, oh say, Walmart. They toil for 9 bucks an hour and they can’t afford ridiculously expensive private health insurance plans. They sign up for Medicaid because it makes sense to do so and, hey, it’s good for Walmart’s bottom line!

Do you suppose that Ron Gould takes advantage of Walmart’s low, low prices?

    I would be willing to bet Gould shops there frequently, as its the only store in Parker Az.
