Those 31 million who won't be covered are mostly comprised of the populations in states that have foolishly rejected the fully-funded federal expanded Medicaid. 19 states, run by GOPTP governors, are leaving their populations out to dry, and it's only to "stand on their principles" by refusing to form exchanges and/or expand Medicaid. If I were a resident in one of those states, I'd be outraged that "principle" is trumping the health and well-being of human beings. It's downright unconscionable.
