Jon Gruber is a heath care expert from MIT who advised Romney in the creation of the Massachusetts Plan (Romneycare) and was involved with the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). In an interview today with the Washington Monthly, he said out loud what the tradmed has concealed as much as it could:
I think, Harold, the single thing we probably need to keep the most focus on is the tragedy of the lack of Medicaid expansions. I know you’ve written about this. You know about this, but I think we cannot talk enough about the absolute tragedy that’s taken place. Really, a life-costing tragedy has taken place in America as a result of that Supreme Court decision. You know, half the states in America are denying their poorest citizens health insurance paid for by the federal government.Washington Monthly
They are not just not interested in covering poor people, they are willing to sacrifice billions of dollars of injections into their economy in order to punish poor people. It really is just almost awesome in its evilness.
It's simple right and wrong, good and evil. Those who cause the deaths and pain of others by rejecting the medicaid expansion (and money for it) are EVIL. No other word for it. Clergy of all kinds (and all ethical people whether religious or non-religious) should condemn these evildoers.
Name the evil ones. Show the consequences of their evil. Force America to see.
Update I: Correct attribution. The original interview was on healthinsurance.org. Here is a link to the site. They have published many original articles about Medicaid expansion and many other aspects of the Affordable Care Act and continue to do so. Their authors have included Harold Pollack, Wendell Potter, Maggie Mahar, Linda Bergthold, Louise Norris and many others.
