the thing abt kaepernik & the entire discussion surrounding free speech in general is that, sure, people are allowed to voice their opinions, and people who disagree w them are allowed to vocalize it too without the risk of government prosecution, but you have to admit that it’s a little weird that it’s SO taboo to not show complete uncritical respect for vague patriotic symbols like that… even though the feds technically aren’t supposed to punish you for voicing your opinions on politics (which, frankly, happens anyway, but that’s another story) there’s a very deliberate set of social mores in place to ensure that people dismiss you if you call any attention to institutional corruption. to blame a certain group for this country’s problems is fair game––think republican dog-whistle politics & democrats acting like republican antics are the only thing we need to worry about––but to suggest that this nation is unethical at its core isn’t something that’s tolerated. you see this with sitting during the pledge or anthem, more provocative forms of protest like flag burning, and, like, any criticism aimed at the military or police force, and pretty much anything else directly associated with patriotism. so, yeah, we have freedom of speech here, but we also have a lot of propaganda to ensure that no one steps out of line regardless, which is really, really dangerous

you heard it here folks

Most cruelly, many of the states that have refused to accept the Medicaid expansion are those where Medicaid benefits are most stingy to begin with. Each state sets its own eligibility levels, and not too surprisingly, states run by Republicans tend to set them extremely low. So for instance, if you’re a single parent in Alabama with two kids and you earn a princely $3,221 a year, the state considers you too wealthy to get Medicaid. In Texas, which has more people living without health insurance than any other state, that figure is $3,737. Millions of the working poor could have gotten coverage from Medicaid through the expansion, but their state legislators and governors quite literally believe that it’s better for a poor person to have no health coverage at all than to get coverage from the government.
 
By one analysis, 5.2 million Americans who could have gotten Medicaid if their states had accepted the expansion will remain uninsured. And if you asked those people in a poll whether Obamacare had helped them, they’d quite reasonably say no.
 
So Republicans in those states can laugh all the way to election night. They got to screw the poor, which, let’s be honest, they were inclined to do anyway, and in doing so they also did political damage to the Obama administration. Quite a trick.
