It's just more proof of what Krugman said: Liberals and conservatives inhabit different moral universes.
Those guys are on the wrong side of history big time, and I hope that long arc of moral justice swings around and kicks their teeth out. When even the dumbest Repub realizes how they're being ripped off, there's gonna be major hell to pay. Well, some will never catch on, but I have hope enough will. Imagine continuing to suffer in your own home state and having to look around at the neighboring states whose improved condition puts the lie to every GOP statement they swallowed hook, line, and sinker. When those chickens come home to roost....
So even though I hope it doesn't come to that, denying any sizable portion of 30M Americans anything they see the others enjoying might wave that magic wand that crushes real GOP power for generations to come. If I live to be well over a hundred - as my genes favor - and somebody asks me that famous question "To what do you attribute your long life?" I know what I'll say. "I had to live long enough to see the g-d GOP DIE!"
Anyone who thinks I won't is in for a big surprise.
