Rick Scott killed Charlene Dill

Well, both he and the Republican members of the Florida legislature did. (So did Chief Justice Roberts, but that's another post)

The headline of this post is true even if Scott and all of the anti-medicaid expansion legislators never heard of Dill and bore her no ill will. In fact, that is probably the case. And yet they should know that denying people the means to pay for medical care will result in some people's deaths. One of those "some people" happened to be Charlene Dill. No doubt there are many others like her (one study calculated 17,000) who will die in Florida and other non-medicaid expansion states.
