So much for the myth that the GOP is pro-life the pro-life party and respects the "sanctity of life," when they degrade it at every turn, exploiting human life as a Wall Street commodity. Disgusting, heinous party.

My wife just died in the UK, she was 51. She was scheduled several months ago to begin treatment the day she died.

Medicaid Expansion is necessary--for humanitarian reasons, to ensure that everyone has affordable/"free" access to contraception, and to improve seamlessness of coverage. (OK we should have Single Payer, but the prospects for that would have been even more dismal.)

Many politicians who reject Medication Expansion say they are rejecting it because their states would not be able to afford the expense after federal subsidies expire. That is not true--at least not for people living in the 21st Century. All that would be needed--"worst" case--is a higher sales tax on certain products (including, but not limited to, alcohol, tobacco, etc.). Modern computerized retail systems can cherry pick these products.
