Posted in Politics

President Barack Obama expressed his frustration with states that chose not to expand Medicaid "for no other reason than political spite" against him, saying that decision has been hurtful to millions.

The words and phrases that resist translation are often the difficult ones, visibly sedimented with history and shifting meanings. But one of the many pleasures of working on this book was thinking about the strange international life of apparently simple words.
