The Party of Scrooge: THE REAL DEATH SQUADS


Ever wonder how many people have to die because the GOP hates Obama so much they refused the Medicaid expansion. Please read the whole article that goes with the chart on the MEME. Jeff. 

"Opting Out Of Medicaid Expansion: The Health And Financial Impacts" 

We estimate the number of deaths attributable to the lack of Medicaid expansion in opt-out states at between 7,115 and 17,104. Medicaid expansion in opt-out states would have resulted in 712,037 fewer persons screening positive for depression and 240,700 fewer individuals suffering catastrophic medical expenditures. 

Medicaid expansion in these states would have resulted in 422,553 more diabetics receiving medication for their illness, 195,492 more mammograms among women age 50-64 years and 443,677 more pap smears among women age 21-64. Expansion would have resulted in an additional 658,888 women in need of mammograms gaining insurance, as well as 3.1 million women who should receive regular pap smears. 

"When you die and get to the meeting with St. Peter, he's probably not going to ask you much about what you did about keeping government small, but he's going to ask you what you did for the poor. You'd better have a good answer."

Looking at the numbers you got to wonder how Republicans can sleep at night. These are just numbers but out there in America people are dying that had a chance to live if given healthcare. 

Again is shows how Republicans cannot be trusted to Govern.
