Red State Political Virus Kills People

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/04/18/1292981/-Epidemic-of-GOPer-virus-will-kill-thousands-in-red-states

snip:

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.


Taliban teabaggers are the real threat to the health and welfare of the United States.

1. When will some pundit ...

 

make the ACA opposition/Job killer connection. It should be relatively easy to calculate the added employment numbers that expanding Medicaid to perform these procedures would net.

2. Couldn't they be sued for denying the constitutional right to life, liberty, etc., because they're

guaranteed protection by the UNITED States Constitution?

Isn't there sufficient evidence of intent to legally find them a threat to national security?
