Obamacare means never having to say 'you're insured'

there's apiece in the nytimes about PEnnsylvania dumping 41000ish
people from their insurance program for poor adults as of yesterday
even though over half a million people are still on the waiting list
for the plan.. in my own state, our supposedly democratic governor
(the one whose balancing the budget by slashing child support
enforcement and cutting allready measly tanf grants) dumped 17500
people from Basic Health. when asked if HHS could speed up the
insurance exchanges to cover the people who are now uncovered,
KAthleen Sebelius basically said 'Suck it poor,sick people. you gotta
wait till 2014! with any luck you'll all be dead in the saltmines by
then' she then rubbed her hands together and growled 'excellent' to
herself like a real life Monty Burns. What you should take away from
this is that fewer poor people can go to the doctor today than before
our 'historic' give away to the insurance industry, i mean heath care

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all of your time.
