I also saw a “keep socialist medicine out of my Medicare!” variant of that sign, but I’m reminded of Trump supporters who hated, hated “Obamacare,” but as soon as Trump was elected, they couldn’t stop gushing about their new “Trumpcare.” Of course, absolutely nothing had changed…

I have caught all the boots I need. Other people can make THEIR OWN bootstraps.
Well what did you expect? She’s just following the lessons of that famous socialist Mitch McConnell.
I just saw someone being retweeted on Twitter for expressing a similar sentiment… (unironically).
