From The Grio:
Republicans in seven of the ten states in the country with the highest percentage of African-Americans have declared they won’t participate in the Medicaid expansion in the Affordable Care Act, potentially denying tens of thousands of blacks health insurance.
In Virginia, Gov. Bob McDonnell has already okayed companies to cut hours to make sure small business owners don’t have to extend medical coverage to some part-time employees. The General Assembly also recently passed legislation that makes it illegal to receive an abortion through state-funded programs.
