In his latest ACA-is-worth-it speaking engagement, President Obama suggested that Louisiana Governor should allow his state's poorer residents, to receive the expanded Medicaid coverage now available under the ACA; that's assuming of course, a state's Governor is compassionate and/or smart enough to take it ...
Obama: I'd fix the website myself

"Even if you don't support the overall plan, let's at least go ahead and make sure that the folks who don't have health insurance right now and can get it through an expanded Medicaid," Obama said. "It's the right thing to do."
Obama said that no matter what, taxpayers were footing the bill for poor resident's healthcare.
"We just pay for the most expensive version, which is when they go to the emergency room because what happens is the hospitals have to take sick folk," Obama said. "They're not just going to leave them on the streets."
Well, I wouldn't be so sure about that Mr. President. Many Red State residents may claim they support Life, but they will turn on a dime to celebrate a Culture of Death ... if only given the opportunity.
If it were up to most Conservatives, they'd let the poor and sick, just die for their lack of funds and dearth of self-initiative. It's the Republican way ...
Lest we forget their Culture of Death was on full display for all of America to see, during the recent GOP Primary Debates.
(No wonder they lost in such a landslide, eh?)

Tea Party Debate Audience Cheered Idea of Letting Uninsured Patients Die
by Amy Bingham, abcnews.go.com -- Sep 13, 2011
CNN moderator Wolf Blitzer’s hypothetical question about whether an uninsured 30-year-old working man in coma should be treated prompted one of the most boisterous moments of audience participation in the CNN/Tea Party Express.
“What he should do is whatever he wants to do and assume responsibility for himself,” Paul responded, adding, “That’s what freedom is all about, taking your own risk. This whole idea that you have to compare and take care of everybody…”
The audience erupted into cheers, cutting off the Congressman’s sentence.
After a pause, Blitzer followed up by asking “Congressman, are you saying that society should just let him die?” to which a small number of audience members shouted “Yeah!”
Republicans may claim 'they care' about helping sick, that they care that some people NOW are having Obamacare insurance problems -- but just let their raw emotions get the best of them, and their cheers, hoots and hollers will a different story. ... Their raw emotions will tell the true story.
That they care, as long as it doesn't cost them a thing. Otherwise ...
They would just 'leave the sick and the poor on the streets' ... They would just "Let them Die."
And "Die quickly." That's apparently what the GOP stands for, despite what they say to the contrary ... They are the Party that Cheers Death.
( ... long as "It's Free for them," that is.)
