The Pennsylvania legislature is currently locked in a battle over the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion, with Republicans in the state lining up against the expansion.

Last night, health care activist AJ Marin, working to support the expansion, chalked the following messages outside Governor Tom Corbett's (R-PA) mansion:

For this act of chalking on behalf of the uninsured, Pennsylvania police did this:

That's right, they arrested him. Here's the arrest citation, saying he made a "derogatory remark" about the Governor:

To recap, Corbett is denying 700,000 Pennsylvania citizens access to health insurance, and Pennsylvania's police just arrested one man for protesting that fact with water-soluble chalk.
