Many define Texas as a Red State. The reality is that it is a non-voting state and one that is ill-informed by a media that in the aggregate, "toe" the Republican line. Texans who vote for politicians in the Republican Legislature who are anathema to policies that give healthcare to their constituents are supporting the deaths of many of their friends, families, and loved ones unknowingly.
Republican Legislature kills Texans
If we want Texans and for that matter, Americans to stop voting for Conservative Right Wing politicians who do not believe healthcare is a right there are effective techniques that we must use. It is imperative that we graphically show untreated tumors and untreated infections of our fellow citizens.
We must make it clear that a vote for politicians not supporting the Medicaid expansion to the Affordable Act is wasting taxpayer dollars since we are paying for a service the legislature refuses to accept. Moreover said stance kills people.
Remember, the Affordable Care Act pays 90% of the cost of the Medicaid Expansion while the state pays 10%. Is life not worth that? We must remind Texans that these are the same people that like to refer to themselves as pro-life. Really?
Going forward, we must ensure that we make politicians from states that do not accept the Medicaid Expansion to the Affordable Care Act pariahs. If one knowingly causes the death of another, we call that person a murderer. Should that description not apply to politicians who deny care to a constituent knowing it will cause them to die?
If the media did their job correctly Texans and the other Red States would not vote the way they do. We know that the Medicaid Expansion to the Affordable Care Act saves lives.
