To everyone who voted NAY: Just how freaking ignorant are you all? Nearly every other modern nation on Earth has universal healthcare that is affordable and accessible to everyone! For f***'s sake, 45,000 Americans DIE EVERY YEAR because they do not have access to basic healthcare! If we can afford to spend $100 billion of our tax dollars funding +800 military bases EVERY YEAR and spend $2 trillion on the Iraq War that that idiot George W. Bush put us in, then why the f*** can we not spend more money to give Americans better access to Medicaid? It is because many Americans, including those who voted NAY to this, have fallen for idiotic, right-wing propaganda that government healthcare is somehow bad for us, but price-gouging, greedy healthcare companies are good. How freaking sad that there are actually adults who still believe in such silly bull****.
