Politicians will never know the horror of watching a loved one die because they have no access to medical care, because they, their families, and friends all have insurance. Medicaid expansion is important, if for no other reason, because it will save lives. Thank you, WMNF, for covering this event. (Those are my legs holding up that sign in the picture!)
