    When Congressmen saw the proposed increase in Medicaid to %133 of the poverty line, that should have been the only info necessary to vote against it. Why on earth would we expand a government program that is miserably failing? Medicaid is always late to pay doctors for treatment given and the complexities of its office is a headache for anyone. A lot of people make between $27,000 and $36,000 a year, and all of those people now add to the Medicaid burden.

    I have mixed feelings about medical care as a right, but expanding Medicaid is a bone headed move. Congressmen and women should have tossed the bill aside after reading that... Wait... do those in Congress read bills anymore? Or just let others sweet talk them?

    If they do the doctor cut as they say they will in Medicare, a Medicare card wont be worth the plastic it is printed on. Doctors are few and far between that accept it and if you cut them even more, well you will be hard pressed to find one that will see you. So off to the emergency room. Not sure why that would be much different than the way it is now but this whole plan is a disaster.

    With the court ruling where states do not have to take on the added requirement and if they do not the Fed will cover the costs in the state well that alone absolutely will increase the cost of the program.

    The big lie of the program costs was charging for years before it actually started and tossing off a good bit of the costs onto the states as if that means we do not get charged for it anyway. What a joke.

    Democrats were lying through their teeth when they first announced what it would cost.
