Carney To Prospective Breast Cancer Patients: Drop Dead

Filed in Delaware, Featured by on February 21, 2018

OK, even I grant you that the headline is a bit alarmist. But not much.  John Carney has proposed parking the state mammography van.  Alleged savings: $277,000. 

Because this brain-dead aparatchik can’t envision a scenario where Delaware’s wealthiest pay more in order to protect those who can’t afford mammograms. 1005 women, mostly black or Hispanic, who got mammograms from mid-2016 to mid-2017 thanks to the van, to place this in context.

His apologist, Karla Rattay, says that the state can find more efficient ways to offer these services.  Because spending one penny more than $277,000  on mammogram outreach is unthinkable in Carneyworld.  For those of you who have forgotten, his party affiliation is ‘D’.

    When something that small is specifically targeted for the ax, there’s usually a story behind it involving bad feelings and trod-upon toes.

    What they really should do is expand its mission to screening for multiple types of cancer. Karyl Rattay couldn’t see outside a box with windows on all sides.

    Isn’t she the same woman who justified just handing Patty Blevins the animal control job over 80 applicants?

    There’s always plenty of gas money for police vehicles.

    Maybe they can start a GoFundMe page. That’s the Republican plan for funding social services, isn’t it? Carney would approve. Heck, we can hold a bake sale and a charity golf tournament!

    I think the problem is they couldnt find a driver…oh wait a state legislator is looking for a p/t job.
