    I would stand in front of the hospital now with signs informing the public as to why the hospital closed.
    "ACA would have kept this hospital open -
    Why did our state refuse the federal funding?"

    I would be calling radio stations and talk shows.
    I would be writing letters to the editor.
    I would go down to the local bar/deli and talk to folks there who care.

    We need to be the ones initiating the response NOW.

    •  No one knows what ACA is. Really. (3+ / 0-)

      The sign should read:

      Republican lawbreakers refused Federal money that would have kept this hospital open.

      If you hate government, don't run for office in that government.

        should read STUPIDY!

        About 2 weeks ago I was taken to a hospital 12 miles away.
        Something had caused me to lose most of the salt in my body
        and  was minutes from heart stoppage.25 extra miles would've probably had a lesser outcome.

            Drinking a glass of V-8 a day is keeping the salt in range, I was sent home under Hospice care for other discoveries and am doing well, spirits and all. It's simply another leg of my adventure. Finding new and beautiful things though loosing patience rapidly with the right wing determination to bring this 'americu' of theirs to its' knees
            and render so much pain to strangers they've decided aren't "good enough" to breathe their unfit air.

            I don't think even the Devil would claim these df's as his children. me thinks they are in for a helluva surprise once their lights go out. No Angels, No Golden Horns and the
            drinking water's piped in from Chernoble.

            Soap Box closed for the night. Love and Peace, good people.
