    Crist refers to information from SIEU. I haven't seen it, and I don't have time to research and compile the list myself. The Republican Party members in every state which refuses to pass the Medicaid expansion are guilty of homicide, and the extent of that homicide should be publicized.

    The MSM does not want to address the issue.

    Crist presented it exactly right to have an impact. The statement needs specific (and defensible) numbers attached. His "6 people per day die prematurely" is the way to state it. That would expand to about 11 or 12 per day here in Texas.

    In fact, I'd like to see a spreadsheet-type list showing the numbers of otherwise eligible but presently excluded uninsured individuals in each state (and possibly major metropolitican area like Dalls/Fort Worth, Houston, and maybe South Texas) together with projections of the death rates associated with the policy of refusing to expand Medicaid.

    Of course, I'm sure that Texas does not show up in the per capita statistics as badly as Mississippi does.

    The US Supreme Court has by its actions and rhetoric has ceased to be legitimate. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot - over
