As I have documented in the past, Sen. Mike “Fists O’ Fury” Jacobs has been on a contant pity party about how downtrodden he is in his inherited job as state senator:
“I live paycheck to paycheck like a lot of people…I’m tight for money like everyone else in this country…We all live paycheck to paycheck, even if you’re making a million dollars…I get paid probably what the average teacher in the Quad-Cities makes.”
But now, via Rich Miller, Bobby Schilling had this to say about the effect of Obamacare in an interview with WROK Radio:
“And the folks that are living paycheck to paycheck, which is most Americans, including myself…[paying Obamacare premiums] is not something that you want to be putting out when you’ve got a kid that wants to play sports or you want to take a trip for vacation. Instead, you’ve got to funnel your money over to Obamacare, which is something you might ever have to use.”
Really Bobby? You are in your 50s but you don’t know that people buy insurance to protect them against what MIGHT happen, with the hope that you never have to use it? Lame. I’m no Obamacare fan, but if your kid playing sports is more important to you than paying for cancer treatment for that kid—-pathetic. Who is running his campaign? Maggie DePoorter?
I know Schilling has 10 kids, although at least two of them are no longer living at home, but it was Bobby’s choice to have 10 kids and it is his responsibility to provide for them and not whine, like Mike Jacobs who only has one kid, that he lives paycheck to paycheck.
If Schilling is living “paycheck to paycheck”, then, like Mike Jacobs, it his choice and has nothing to do with public policy.
