OH, OH, That damned welfare that's ruinin' our country.  Here's another glaring example...he says satirically.

Terry Reilly receives federal healthcare grant

Not-for-profit plans new Middleton location by Dec. 1
   NAMPA — Terry Reilly Health Services, a not-for-profit medical organization in the Treasure Valley, announced Friday that it will open a new healthcare facility in Middleton. The result of a $650,000 grant, the clinic will create 11 new positions and see an estimated 8,300 patients per year.
   Terry Reilly is one of 67 organizations selected for the grant, which was made possible by the Affordable Care Act of 2010. The Bureau of Primary Health Care, a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, received more than 800 applications from around the country. Terry Reilly was the only organization from Idaho selected.
   Terry Reilly clinics charge patients based on their ability 
to pay, with a sliding scale based on family income. The grant is designed to help establish and support the new Middleton clinic, so that it can serve patients with private insurance, Medicaid, Medicare and those who are uninsured.
   “We care more about our patients and their health than we care about the type of health insurance they have or how much money they make,” Tim Brown, executive director of Terry Reilly, said in a prepared statement. “We are excited to be able to bring our services directly to the community of Middleton.”
   Terry Reilly has until Dec. 1 to open its new location. Services provided will include medical and dental care, mental health counseling and case management services.
   The Middleton Clinic will be Terry Reilly’s 7th medical office and 5th dental office in the Treasure Valley.


Conservatives, bullying and charity   ing-others/article_7dc7cd38-c7a6-11e0-87ce-001cc4c03286.html
   Conservatism is no excuse for bullying. What, and liberalism is? Most Idahoans are conservative. Given a 1-to-1 ratio, most bullies will be conservative, too. Given that it has been proved conservatives are more generous to charities with both money and time, it also makes sense that most of the nice people in Idaho are conservative, too. But that’s not something Delmar Stone will ever admit.

   If every person who called themselves a Christian were swift to listen, slow to speak, slow to wrath, then we would call most Christians open-minded or wise. If most Christians loved one another, and prayed for those who persecute them, we would call them peaceful and forgiving. If every Christian loved their neighbor as themselves, Christians would be responsible for ending poverty. ... Have you ever bothered to ask why conservatives give more than liberals? Have you ever questioned the motive? 
Charities can be used as tax loopholes. Churches count as charities, and I’ve seen where the money goes on some of those. I give time to charities, and a little money, but mostly I want to see taxes raised so the needy don’t have to beg. People aren’t as generous as they need to be in order to maintain a society where the poor don’t starve to death in the streets.

   Why would I have to “bother to ask” why I do something when I already know before I do it? You may question my motive, but you are wrong. I know why I do something, and the sources confirming that conservative households give as much as 30 percent more than their liberal counterparts are many. ... I question the motives of liberals who give lip service to “serving the poor” by favoring policies to make other people pay for it. “Shared sacrifice” means nothing coming from those who share none of it.
