    And they slandered Alan Grayson for his candor in telling it JUST like it is!

    Isn't it interesting that MUCH of the refusal to embrace the Medicaid expansion comes from Republican Governors in state that were STUPID enough to elect them! So much for Republicans looking out for YOU, ordinary citizens in need!

    Roll call of Medicaid shame:

    Alaska - Sean Parnell (R)
    Alabama - Robert Bentley (R)
    Florida - Rick Scott (R)
    Georgia - Nathan Deal (R)
    Idaho - Butch Otter (R)
    Indiana - Mike Pence (R)
    Kansas - Sam Brownback (R)
    Louisiana -  Pyush (Bobby) Jindal (R)
    Maine - Paul LePage (R)
    Mississippi - Phil Bryant (R)
    Nebraska - Dave Heineman (R)
    North Carolina - Pat McCrory (R)
    Oklahoma -  Mary Fallin (R)
    Pennsylvania - Tom Corbett (R)
    South Carolina - Nikki Haley (R)
    South Dakota - Dennis Daugaard (R)
    Tennessee -  Bill Haslam (R)
    Texas - Rick Perry (R)
    Utah - Gary Herbert (R)
    Wisconsin - Scott Walker (R)

    America's LAST HOPE: vote the GOP OUT in 2014 elections. MAKE them LOSE the House Majority and reduce their numbers in the Senate. Democrats move America forward - Republicans take us backward and are KILLING OUR NATION!

      Thanks Democrats! My Obamacare is permanent coverage no one can take away - and saving $3,000 is nice too

      •  no, there were (sadly) a few states on the map (0+ / 0-)

        who have Democratic Governors - but I didn't spend the time to research if they are fighting GOP-dominated legislatures.

        However, clearly, the preponderance of the "Medicaid denier" states are those led by GOP Governors, and likely with rubber-stamp GOP legislatures.

        As usual for the GOP - talk about what you are doing to help people, then do the EXACT OPPOSITE of that.
