Obamacare will increase the death rate in states among the taxpaying working middle class by at least 15%.

Surely this can't be true. Must be the liberal media. Ask any teabagger.

And we've now learned from the CBO that the AHA will reduce the deficit. Another batch of con lies in their dumpster.

Any Colorado condolences coming from the lord marshal b. h. obama are spurious. How is it possible for anyone to critique the actions of james holmes when their mentor for years was the infamous terrorist bill ayers? I mean the actions of bill ayers and james holmes are on the same page...only exception, bill ayers has a mile long criminal rap sheet.
America should question b. h. obama's judgment about his long term close association with bill ayers because when it comes to friends, associates and mentors b. h. obama’s judgment is a disgrace and should disqualify him for dogcatcher and making any condolences concerning Colorado, etc.
After all b. h. obama's association with bill ayers would have prevented him from ever holding any high level security position especially in the White House but thanks to voting morons he got a pass he did not deserve.

"The results corresponded to 2,840 deaths prevented per year in the states with Medicaid expansions."

So those deaths were prevented ONLY by Medicaid??

They weren't from less murders??
They weren't from drops in car wreck fatalities???
They weren't from less suicides???
They weren't from less of any form of accidents, causing death??

They were "ONLY" from Medicaid expansion???

Democrats do not caEr how many poor people die just as long as they can be exploited by the left, because the democrats cannot exist without the poor. It is the poor staying poor that keeps that party alive. So REMEMBER....the dems want you to stay poor because that is where they get their power!

The dems want to take everyone DOWN. The conservatives want to bring everyone UP.

Or put another way...Democrats do not care how many poor people die just as long as they "KEEP VOTING FOR" the "DEMOCRATS", because the democrats cannot "WIN" without the "DEAD".
