Regressives would rather lose $ than provide Medicaid to the poor

Again no exaggeration. According to a Rand Corp report those states that choose not to implement the Medicaid expansion provided by Obamacare will have to pay billions of dollars to pay for uninsured care in their States. Those regressive Governors are all GOP, not incidentally, and they'll deny care to 3.6 million people. When those people go into an emergency room where care must be provided, who will pay? The very States that deny the Medicaid coverage. Regressives mistakenly believe--without facts, as usual--that it will cost more to implement the Medicaid expansion but according to this report it is actually the reverse. See the link for the numbers

Just like belief in austerity has been proven wrong they simply refuse to face facts on this issue as well, blinded by an ideology that is already in the dustbin of history. It's just a matter of time until the pubic votes them out for good and the Party is completely defunct. 2014 will be the turning point if they keep up their ostrich intransigence, and we know they will. I look forward to their demise for the sake of the American people.
