While enjoying a plate of gravy and biscuits at Feller’s Family Restaurant last Friday morning in Willow Springs, Mo., Johnny Morgan energized the breakfast conversation with examples of what he regards as unwarranted government intrusion into people’s lives.
Pushing back his camouflage cap, he brought up gun control and explained that the issue should only mean “use both hands” and not a ban on certain weapons. Colleagues seated around his table didn’t miss a beat, joining him in a burst of laughter.
His tone had grown somber by the time he got around to another hot topic, Medicaid expansion, which he and many others derided as Obamacare. They said it means more government control and that Missouri would be better off rejecting Washington’s start-up money for it.
