How's that saying go "Those who were last will be first, and those who are first will be last".
The rich get richer and you spout on the needy.
Shame on you!
You've got a republican Gov. but yet the state overwhelmingly voted the other way. All I can say is hhmm.

Check the political composition of the legislature. She has an uphill fight, but at least she is fighting and gaining some support! It's you who can't see the real forest for the political trees!

That forest started from a seed and developed roots did it not.
It sounds to me like shes having an Obama moment. So the next time you try the shaking the tree to which you think the leaves will only fall to one side please think again.

Seeing that I've never had anything crawl up my arse and couldn't even conceive of why anything would want to your dead wrong about me.
The only reason she could or would pull this off is because theres a majority of democrats in the arena, the guys and gals with their hands out and not in their own pockets.

as long as people don't confuse the 2 plans

medicaid
fully funded by taxpayers, recipient if never had worked paid nothing to the system.
recipient pays nothing, no premium, no co-pay, no deductible. Plus full dental and eye care.

medicare
recipient paid for via payroll tax deduction until recipient cannot work.
recipient pays as of 2013 increase $101.00 a month,$100.00 deductible, 20% co-pay. Plus no dental or eye coverage at all which makes no sense as seniors have a demonstrated higher need for dental and eyecare which is 100% out of pocket.

it gets so tiring hearing how seniors get 'free' medical, they don't.

Damned good thing that the 53% are paying for Medicaid to cover the 47% who don't<sigh>.

Its going to be most interesting to see how Medicare interacts with my current health care provider and insurance later this year when I turn 65. Something tells me my out of pocket and/or coverage will be changing, and not for the better either. The farm fuzzy feeling of a smooth transition doesn't come to mind.

Prove it!
You can't be DEA or FBI because according to reports your too busy getting cheap paid and unpaid sex from prostitutes or do you men just refer to this as special privileges. The appropriate thing to do is strip them of their top secret clearance and give them a desk job where they can be monitored.
The very people that are suppose to abide by the law are usual the lawbreakers and you wonder why no one respectable respects the system in which these men have declared an oath.
It doesn't matter if prostitution is legal in Mexico those people have no morality anyways. The point is that you are subjected to a higher moral standard.
To give some of these men a slap on the hands just shows integrity is not high on the priority list.

What do you want for a state that embraces illegal citizens to come work not pay taxes and play and get paid for it and then are bold enough to brag about their illegalities.

Thats were I beg to differ. Not everyone that enrolls in medicaid is unemployed and not everyone who signed up for medicare worked a day in their life.

Hopefully they will come up with a better solution for our senior citizens on a fixed income. My parents worry of this as well so hopefully everthing works out for the best.

I'm not trying to start a race war but our country needs to get down to the bare knuckles attitude and start admitting to where the root of the problem is and find solutions.
