Watch Where You Step

I might have gone to the hospital last night, but that would have been so unthinkable. You see, I had a toe going sideways. It is probably still going sideways, but I don’t want to look at it. Back in the day, I would have gotten help, but the evil Republicans said no to Obamacare’s Medicaid Expansion, and I was just reading about the hundreds of low-income people that would die as a consequence, all the money from the federal magic money stash that wouldn’t be sent to the state, and all the hospital jobs that would be lost. How dare I think of diverting resources to a pesky toe to cause jobs, people, and debt to drop like flies all about?

    For the record, I don’t believe low-income people will be dying due to the decision – but we can always find the numbers to say it’s so.
