From “S.C. Doctors Urge Lawmakers to Expand Medicaid Eligibility” in the Charleston Regional Business Journal, here’s a moment of clarity from Medicaid-expansion backer Kris Crawford (R-Florence), who describes expansion opponents thusly:

The politics are going to overwhelm the policy. It is good politics to oppose the black guy in the White House right now, especially for the Republican Party.”

Ah, yes, “the black guy in the White House,” or as I like to call him, “The President of the United States”. I can’t imagine how much that rankles folks in certain quarters, or as I like to call them, “The South”.
