The treasury.
Yeah I know. But seriously where will the states or for that matter the federal government get the money to pay these massive amounts of money. I think the American people bought a pig in a poke and it's a skunk! There is no way they can raise that much money! A quick check of the math says if there are 50 million families making less than $50,000 a year (a guess) that will be around $500,000,000,000 ($500 billion). That doesn't include the people who make between $50,000 and $92,200. There is absolutely no way they can come up with that kind of money without collapsing the economy.

The family of Marco McMillian, a 33 year-old openly gay candidate for mayor of Clarksdale, Mississippi released a statement yesterday saying that he was beaten and set on fire before his lifeless body was dumped near a river. Last Thursday, police arrested a 22-year old man who, like McMillian, is African-American and charged him with the mayoral candidate’s murder. Although the motive for the murder remains unknown, the circumstances of the murder suggest a possible anti-gay hate crime. According to the family,“[w]e feel this was not a random act of violence based on the condition of the body when it was found.”

Lily, I think you're wrong on this one. The medical examiner disagrees with the family who appear to be attempting to create drama. The young man who has been arrested was in a friendship/relationship with the deceased who's body is said to have injuries consistent with a beating but not dragging or burning.

A domestic dispute rather than a hate crime.

House panel kills Medicaid expansion on session eve
by John Kennedy | March 4th, 2013

On the eve of the start of the 2013 Legislature, Gov. Rick Scott was dealt a blow Monday when a House committee killed his push for Medicaid expansion.

In a party-line vote, 10 Republicans on the House’s committee on the Affordable Care Act, voted against expansion; five Democrats sided with the Republican governor, who recently dropped his longtime opposition to the measure, which is expected to make 1 million lower-income Floridians eligibile for Medicaid.

“What you saw today was theater of the absurd,” said Rep. Mark Pafford, D-West Palm Beach, following the vote.

The House vote likely sets the stage for a session-long fight over expansion. The politics have been complicated, with Scott getting clear support from Democrats long accustomed to opposing his policies, while Republicans are divided, at best.

Defying conservatives in his own party, Scott said he wants the Legislature to approve expanding Medicaid to 138 percent of the poverty level, a move which would make eligible almost 1 million Floridians.

Under the expansion, the federal government would pay for 100 percent of the expansion until 2016, when states would start paying a 5 percent share that would gradually increase to a maximum of 10 percent of new costs by 2020.

Fox News has gone silent after questions emerged casting serious doubt on a Daily Caller report that Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) paid women for sex in the Dominican Republic, a report that Fox News hyped during at least 22 segments.

The Washington Post reported on March 4 that a woman who appeared in a video claiming Menendez paid her for sex now says that she was paid to make those claims, claims she now denies, as part of an effort to frame Menendez. Menendez has denied the allegations, first reported in November 2012 by the Daily Caller.

Fox News has yet to discuss the latest developments that undermine what the Daily Caller has reported for months. By contrast, Fox aggressively hyped the uncorroborated allegations when they were being pushed by the Daily Caller, discussing them during at least 22 segments since November 2012, according to a search of the Nexis database.

CNN, which also reported on the initial, uncorroborated allegations against Menendez, has reported on the latest developments.

According to the Post, two affidavits have been filed that refute the Daily Caller's story - one by a woman who claims she was paid to give false accounts about Menendez on the Daily Caller video, and one from a lawyer who claims he was misled into getting the woman to provide a false story.

As New York Magazine's Margaret Harmann noted, this is at least the second report from a legitimate news source that discredited what the Daily Caller first alleged.

The Daily Caller has since claimed that the Post spoke to the wrong woman.

Politico reported that the Post is standing behind its reporting.

Tucker Carlson, the Daily Caller co-founder and editor-in-chief, is scheduled to appear on Fox News' Special Report Tuesday night.

I know you said that yesterday; and assume you read about that on CNN; however, the final report won't be ready for 2 weeks and the family is saying he was burned; let's see what happens. Yes, I could be wrong, I'm not trying to be right, just saying let the investigation unfold. Apparently that ME didn't have permission to make such a comment is what I have read.
Nevertheless, sad for the family to lose a son with such promise.
BTW, Mississippi just recently voted on the 13th ammendment banning slavery! What a state.

Government collects the taxes; negotiates the cost of procedures and drugs that is the same and equitable for everyone. No one is denied, no copays, no deductibles, no denial because of pre existing conditions; in other words, all that insurance mumbo jumbo would be eliminated completely. The only way an insurance company makes a profit is by taking in more than they pay out. They have a vested interest in denying services; and the CEO is beholden to a board of directors, rather than the policy holders.

Now there is a national push for that. It never ends; the desire to punish people for being poor.
