  •  People needing Medicaid are poorer ... (7+ / 0-)

    And don't vote in big numbers.  The GOP knows this.  They don't care if poor non-voters get sick and die.  It will take a much less compliant media to make the Republicans pay politically for this, and we don't have one.

    In a sane country with a functioning press, the refusal of GOP states to expand Medicaid would be a daily scandal.  Instead, a handful of horror stories run in its place.

    Democrats running statewide in purple states bordering non-expansion states might make some hay, if they pound it hard enough, but if they are gutless about the ACA (gutless Dems?  Yes, hard to believe) then the opportunity will be lost.

    •  Now it's our turn to help (0+ / 0-)

      And by us I mean every Kos person.
      We need to be flooding the media outlets with emails and phone calls.
      Unfortunately the Administration and the Democrats are really inept when it comes to selling this. So, it's up to the real Democrats to step up.

    •  Maybe if they get threatened with having this (0+ / 0-)

      taken away by the GOP they might vote?

      they sort of OWE us a vote for DEMS really
