Republicans are about to let as many as 17,104 people die under their "leadership". (#1876)

(1) "Predicted national-level consequences of states opting out of Medicaid expansion are displayed in Exhibit 2. We estimate the number of deaths attributable to the lack of Medicaid expansion in opt-out states at between 7,115 and 17,104". It astounds me the callousness these Republican politicians have toward those of their constituents they deem unworthy of living. In contrast, Republicans rail against our President for the tragedy at Benghazi that he had little to no influence to change and 4 deaths occurred. Yet now, These Republican politicians, who with as simple an act of a stroke of a pen in most cases, could stop thousands of American deaths right here in our own country. They have not been willing to sign into law medicaid expansion that is being offered to them because they have an ideological difference of opinion about whether health care is a right or a privilege. Well I have had enough of the Republican "game playing" with my fellow citizens lives in this gravely serious respect. Not only will I continue to devote this blog to highlighting the tragedy Republicans are forcing Americans to suffer but I will also continue to highlight their hypocrisy when they try to blame our President for their inept and life crushing decisions. I am utterly, and I damn well mean utterly, shocked that these Republican politicians are not being run out of town on a rail after being tarred and feathered. The American people deserve to have politicians who are working on their behalf, and instead what we have with Republican politicians is a disdain for all their constituents in order to service only those citizens in their jurisdictions who "pay for play". Enough! This November let us vote every Republican out of office who is running!
