Chris Christie Says Yes To Obamacare Medicaid Expansion

After taking his time to do the research rather than simply reacting in a politically expedient way that put party before the people of his state, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has concluded that accepting the expanded Medicaid portion of the Affordable Care Act for New Jersey is, in the Governor’s words,“the smart thing to do for our fiscal and public health.”

Christie becomes the latest Republican governor, following on the heels of Florida GOP Governor Rick Scott, to set aside the Republican anti-Obamacare agenda, no matter who gets hurt, and do what is in the best interest of his state.

In making his announcement, Christie added—

“Accepting these federal resources will provide health insurance to tens of thousand of low-income New Jerseyans, help keep our hospitals financially healthy and actually save money for New Jersey taxpayers.”

In other words, Chris Christie gets it.

If it wasn't for the fact that he manages to read and post on this thread, I would swear he's blind. The only thing he manages to do is parrot reich wingnut talking heads. If he has EVER done any of his own investigations to really find the truth, it's not apparent in his posts.
The funniest part is they go out of their way to find something incongruous and generally opinion based to support their point.

I guess their brain washing includes simply posting a link as proof!

I just love how they chastise the so called msm, then use it as proof while at the same time claiming they're all in lock-step!

It's hilarious!

$6.2 trillion.
Considering the growing instability of the U.S. financial house of cards, one might wonder if the costs associated with universal health coverage won’t be the straw that eventually breaks the camel’s back.

"a bad one"? oh no, not racist it all.

so why is it i know more 'bad' whites then i do blacks? why is the only people who have ever screwed me over in business have been white people?

here's what i know that you don't. black folks have on overblown sense of honor. it at times leads to bad things such as black on black murder in the name of honor, but it also carries over to business. all the whites care about is getting over and making a buck in the process. capitalism at it's worst.

i'm racist, but not when it comes to black people.

"Indeed, Christie’s fellow Republicans should be begging for the opportunity to study at the feet of the New Jersey governor so that they too might learn something about serving the people who elect them rather than pursuing their own personal, petty agendas."

And once again Carol, you're making statements that you can't back up with any facts or evidence.
Numerous articles have been posted by credible sources backing up the stonewalling on the part of this administration and the State Department into Benghazi.

Just the other day, I posted an article where Issa is giving the State Department until the 24th - that would be tomorrow - to produce the surviving witnesses which they have refused to do or subpoenas will be issued whether they like it or not.

If information surfaces that proves Obama and Kerry have, in fact, been stonewalling this investigation and, indeed, suppressing the truth, it's not going to look good for either of them - or Hillary.

yes. the insurance exchange is going to allow a choice from thousands of insurance companies across the country. somewhat different then being stuck with who your employer picks for you, which doctors you can see mandated by that insurance, and having to find a new job if you want to change it.
Covered California offers the following limits choices in San Bernadino and Riverside counties, none of which provide assurance of the physician or hospital of your choice:

Health Net (HMO or PPO)
Molina Healthcare (PPO)

Ronald Reagan referred to the EITC as the proudest achievement of his presidency. Both Bush's increased the limits of the EITC.

Obamacare Will Increase Health Spending By $7,450 For A Typical Family of Four
http://www.forbes.com/sites/theapothecary/201...
This is another example of how GD stupid you people are.

The moron that wrote this article to dupe dumbasses like you said this:

If you take all the spending in the ACA in the first ten years it comes to 621 billion. He then took 621 billion & divided it the the population & times 4 for the cost per family of four.

" OMG OMF Obamacare increases health spending by $7450."

Note that he doesn't say the average family will spend $7450 more. You are just so stupid that you think he does.

The author also totally ignores that this 621 billion is funded & not paid by this average family of 4.

You people are so easily duped that it would be funny if it weren't so tragic.

My God People. Get a f*cking grip & quit being so GD stupid.
