The quote of the day... from health economist Jonathan Gruber, one of the principal architects of the Affordable Care Act (my emphasis):

The 26 states — all with Republican governors or Republican-controlled legislatures — that have thus far declined Medicaid expansion “are willing to sacrifice billions of dollars of injections into their economy in order to punish poor people. It really is just almost awesome in its evilness.”

Driftglass it best: "one can either be a Good American or a Good Republican, but one can no longer be both."
