Who does he blame?
a. Himself. Assuming that someone else would save him in an emergency was selfish and childish.
b. Congressional Republicans from the 1990s who killed single payer health coverage. Single payer would have meant he always had coverage.
c. Congressional Republicans from the 1990s who created the core design of Obamacare.
d. Current Republicans in his state, who blocked a federally funded Medicaid expansion that would have covered him.
e. Obama and Democrats, who bent over backwards to try and ensure this wouldn't happen.
If you guessed "e", you're right. http://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/health-care/health-care-challenge-blog/article20696283.html
That's why we can't have nice things. There is a Republican base who, if their Republican representatives literally showed up at their door and kicked the in the genitals, would somehow blame Democrats for their crotch pain.

Answer: This week, the governor of Texas announced he was putting a special watch on U.S. military exercises this summer, due to public speculation that the soldiers might take over the state and confiscate everyone’s guns. Also, the Idaho Legislature recently killed a bill that would have provided federal aid in tracking down deadbeat dads, due to concern that it might involve the use of Shariah law. I do not want to hear you calling Bernie Sanders an extremist.
“I’m angry because of everything we go through,” Watson said, “You killed my man Freddie. … You really dragged my man who was already out. You’re shooting people out here for nothing. ... We got a mayor who don’t do shit about it.”
Vittert admonished, “We have to watch the language,” and then Watson translated it, Airplane-like, directly from “jive.” “We have a mayor who isn’t doing anything about it.”
“You’ve obviously had a run-in with the police?” Vittert ask-accused. Sure, Watson said. “They hit me with three bean bags.”
Back in the studio, Megyn Kelly was either incredulous or titillated: “Let’s see the injuries.”
And so, Watson lifted up his shirt to reveal three different bloody wounds, with Vittert’s disembodied and ghostly-white hand pointing helpfully into the frame.
“Oh, wow. There you go, Megyn.”
