Kasich Offers to Buy Bibles for Critics of His Medicaid Expansion Plan

Here’s Ohio governor John Kasich, declaring he’ll buy Bibles for those who criticize him for expanding Medicaid in his state as part of the implementation of Obamacare:

“Look at Medicaid expansion! Do you know how many people are yelling at me? I go to events where people yell at me. You know what I tell em? I mean, God bless em, I’m telling them a little bit better than this, there’s a book, it’s got a new part and an old part,  they put it together. It’s a remarkable book. If you don’t have one, I’ll buy you one, and it talks about how we treat the poor. Sometimes you just have to lead.”

Hat tip Jason Hart, one of Kasich’s toughest home-state critics.
