Maine State Rep. Ken Fredette (R-Newport) made a bizarre speech on Wednesday about how women supposedly think Obamacare’s expansion of Medicaid is "free," but his man's brain understands the actual cost (video below).
However, Fredette failed to name one woman in the Maine House who did not understand Obamacare's expansion of Medicaid for the poor or claimed that it was "free."
Speaking on the Maine House floor, Fredette referred to the bestselling pop psychology relationship book "Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus" to explain to his colleagues why women's brains could not understand Obamacare correctly, reports MainePeoplesAlliance.org.
Fortunately for the poor and uninsured in Maine, the State House voted to accept the Medicaid expansion, which the GOP Minority Leader so deeply opposed.
"As I listen to the debate today and earlier debate on this bill, I can’t help but think of a title of a book, 'Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus.' It’s a book about the fact that men sort of think one way in their own brain, in their own world. And women think another way in their own brain and in their own world. And it really talks about the way that men and women can do a better job at communicating," explained Fredette.
"Because if you listen to the debate today, in my mind, a man’s mind, I hear two fundamental issues. From the other side of the aisle, I hear the conversation being about 'free. This is free, we need to take it, and it’s free. And we need to do it now.’"
"And that’s the fundamental message that my brain receives. Now, my brain, being a man’s brain, sort of thinks differently, because I say, 'Well, it’s not, if it’s free, is it really free?' Because I say, in my brain, 'There’s a cost to this,'" said Fredette.
