Healthcare Stakes Increase in NC

This great post by Leslie Boyd, a local activist for better access to health care, really highlights what NC is going to be facing with our Republican-controlled government — the same ones who turned town hundreds of millions of federal dollars for medicaid expansion, AND unemployment benefits….the destructive power of the state government right now is awesome and terrifying. 

I’d say we deserve the government we vote for, but really, the gerrymandering of 2010 meant we didn’t get what we voted for — way more democratic votes were cast than republican ones in 2012; yet the majority in both houses is republican. Now the voting rights debacle seeks to keep it that way. We all feel dissed and dis-enfranchised.
