The Republicans are killing people because they oppose Obamacare and the Medicaid expansion. After all, these programs are gonna be paid for by the federal government! So it's a good thing?

Do The Times and Dr. Alex Stemer at Franciscan Alliance realize we the taxpayers are the federal government? So either way we pay for the Medicaid expansion! Do they realize that giving insurance to folks who can't even pay premiums only means we taxpayers will end up paying for their co-pays and deductibles, not any different from folks abusing the ER system?

Stories like this are just scare tactics to pander to the uninformed, like Darcey Wade, who wrote that Gov. Mike Pence has refused to implement Obamacare. No, he refused the Medicaid expansion. You can still get your socialism on the federal site!
