• Democratic Senator: Taking The Confederate Flag Down Helps Expand Obamacare

    The Confederate battle flag was taken from the South Carolina statehouse Friday during an elaborate ceremony, after the flag’s 54-year run at the Capitol grounds.

    Democratic South Carolina State Senator Marlon Klimpson told MSNBC during the ceremony that taking the Confederate flag down will help liberals expand Obamacare and raise the minimum wage.

    “The tone that these families have demonstrated through this process will change the way we work together for not only race relations but a subtenant agenda to include all people in South Carolina,” Klimpson said. “Two of the major issues that my colleague Senator Pinkney worked for was health care for all. So I think we are going to start the discussion with an honest discourse about the Affordable Healthcare Act and Medicaid expansion in South Carolina.”

    “What also is as important is we want to make sure is that all people are able to earn a living wage and get the benefits so that we have a requisite economic base structure,” he continued. “We have to change the banter and discourse and move it to empowering people economically, including business in this economic engine of South Carolina.”

    What does taking  the confederate flag down have nothing to do with expanding Obamacare?  This absurdity is liberal logic in full display.

    The removal of the flag came one day after the state legislature passed a bill ordering it, buoyed by arguments that a flag that some see as support for racism and white supremacy couldn’t remain on the Capitol grounds after the Charleston massacre.
