    yes, it's always mystified me how Democrats don't run on the "life and death" aspect for healthcare reform. Thousands of Americans die each year from lack of insurance, and the Republican governors refusing the Medicaid expansion knowingly let their own citizens die just to stick it to Obama. It's unbelievable. It's basically murder, and that's not even hyperbole.

    I never once see a Republican asked "hey, how do you feel about X number of people who are going to die in your state from lack of insurance?" If the media isn't willing to do it, why aren't the Democrats doing it? Is that not "pragmatic"?

    If I were Obama I'd be slinging that shit all over the TV every chance I got. "Every Republican governor that refuses this expansion is personally responsible for every single preventable death that follows. It may not be a crime, but it is surely criminal."
