ObamaCare, ACA, HealthCare Reform: Spreading Despite Koch Efforts To Deny Care To People

Two nights ago a Florida special election ended with victory and speech from a Republican, Jolly, claiming a seat vacated by a long-term Republican. 

You might know issues related to ObamaCare or no ObamaCare were peripheral to the election results. The Right claims the victory was a referendum against ObamaCare; the Left says "No such thing."

Imagine the prospect of over one half a billion dollars available for feeding the poor or providing critical medical or dental procedures for the less fortunate. 

Meanwhile, the ACA moves forward. 

While the Kochs and their legislative facilitators are busy working against the ACA, the life sustaining law spreads. 

It moves forward!
