“When you die and get to the meeting with St. Peter, he's probably not going to ask you much about what you did about keeping government small, but he's going to ask you what you did for the poor. You'd better have a good answer.” (Ohio Governor John Kasich, urging GOP legislators to accept Medicaid expansion, June 2013)
