Anyway, the (latest) beef that Nicki’s got with the current government is over heath care and the limited access some people have to it. Nicki took to her Twitter earlier this year to express her dissatisfaction with the nation’s current policy, and how it affected her on a personal level when a friend died because of lack of care:
“Yvette Wilson passed away from cancer tonight. God Bless her. (( Whats sad is that when Yvette was bringing home the bacon, the gov’t was probably taking millions. On her death bed tho, #Nowheretobefound. That should be a God given right! Even with Obama Care, too much involved. Just give FREE health care to all. @barackobama What can we do? @BarackObama I wouldn’t mind the millions they took if it was going to healthcare. Why should a poor person struggle to pay for MEDS sir”
And she’s got a point. Especially the part where she talks about the government getting their piece, but leaving the sick girl high and dry when she needed care. But Nicki must be ill-advised, because Romney, as far as I’m aware, would never have anything to do with universal (let alone “free”) health care. Hell, Mitt Romney probably doesn’t even know who Nicki Minaj is, for crying out loud. But I’m sure he’s just thrilled that there’s someone else out there voting for him before even knowing what they’re talking about.
Funny thing is, Nicki isn’t even registered to vote. From Hip Hop Wired:
If Nicki Minaj makes the decision to endorse Mitt Romney in the forthcoming election, she may want to take care of something first: registering to vote. Minaj was flooded with media clips Tuesday (Sept. 4) when a snippet from her lyrics on Lil Wayne’s Dedication 4 mixtape revealed that she is a Republican and voting for Romney. The line may have been blown out of proportion but in an age when personal information is just a Google search away, the 29-year-old was quickly exposed for her voting past, or lack thereof. As it turns out, in the three states where she’s lived, Minaj is not registered to vote. Having resided in Georgia, New York and California the Young Money Barbie never seemed to find the time to fill out and mail in a registration card, or do it online.
Ugh. She’s such a joke, you know?
