In 1984 about 10,000 Americans were dying of AIDS. That's largely an estimate as solid figures weren't available until 1987, but it's close. Deaths from AIDS eventually peaked at 40,000 in 1994 and began a swift decline but no thanks to the Reagan administration which largely did nothing but stick its fingers in its ears and complain loudly about all those damn trees polluting the air.
By some strange coincidence it's estimated that a similar number of unlucky Americans, about 10,000, will die in 2014 as a result of not having access to affordable health care, but only in states that aren't implementing Obamacare. You would probably not be surprised if I told you that all of these states are run by Republicans.
Fortunately, as the Affordable Care Act inevitably comes online in more and more states the number of needless deaths will fall, but it's no thanks to the GOP. For now, I'm just enjoying painting a picture of our conservative pals as the heartless monsters they are and have always been.
