If Republicans get their way, more than 7.5 million people in 34 states could lose their health care subsidies offered through the Affordable Care Act. Conservatives who stand against affordable health coverage, because they like private companies to be able to choose whether people live or die, are currently creaming their panties over the potential Supreme Court decision.
Speaker John Boehner (R- OH) said:
“People should die, really. I mean if they can’t afford health coverage that’s not my problem. I have my government paid for health care.”
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) said:
“It’s really a matter of putting the health care decisions back into the hands of the people. And when I say “people” I mean the giant corporations who overcharge and make it impossible for plebeian citizens to afford coverage. God bless them.”
Television host Sean Hannity said:
“If these people don’t want to die or receive health coverage then they should become rich like me. It’s really that simple. I don’t know why people are finding this so hard to understand.”
The states that may lose subsidies are the states that refused to implement their own health care exchanges. These, mostly red states, are quite literally screwing their citizens out of affordable health coverage just to make President Obama look bad. So from Free Wood Post to these quite evil conservatives, go fuck yourself.
