GOP Death Panels

In his column* today, Paul Krugman points to a RAND corporation study that found if 14 states whose GOP governors were opposed to the Medicaid expansion ultimately refused to adopt it, it would cause about 19,000 deaths a year.

Right now, it looks as if more than 14 states, more like 24 or 25, won’t expand Medicaid under Obamacare, so that means even more deaths.
