At what point does it become murder?

If you had the opportunity to provide healthcare to 400,000 people who had no insurance, without any cost to your state, would you do it? Wouldn't you have a moral obligation to do it? What could justify not providing healthcare?

Virginia State Senator Richard H. Black:
"This was a stunning victory for the Republicans. We passed a budget in a single night and we have effectively blocked Medicaid expansion."

The Medicaid expansion would have given healthcare to 400,000 poor Virginians and would cost the state $0 for two years. That's NO COST to the state of Virginia. Some of those 400,000 people will DIE from lack of healthcare.

And Republicans consider this a stunning victory.

Republicans. The party of death.
