Polk County Commissioner Calls Medical Assistance & MinnesotaCare Recipients LAZY…

News from the county of my birth in northwestern Minnesota, it seems that it is open season on bullying the poor. Polk County Commissioner, Warren Affeldt, has taken the war on the poor to whole new level. Mostly, people just grumble about the poor getting this or the poor getting that rather than sharing their true feelings about how all those people who might be receiving any benefit at all from the government are LAZY.
