You must have been posting while I was posting to you. Did you read Pro's post. We would have to pay the money back with interest. If we can't pay the current cost of Medicaid with huge overruns, how will we pay expansion of Medicaid, basically a loan to the government with interest and even larger overruns.It WOULD HAVE been covered 100% for 3 years by the FEDERAL government with OUR tax money that WE have ALREADY sent in. So the republiKan general assembly refused to allow OUR NC money to come back into OUR state. I know you rabidly support republiKans , but how do you figure that was a smart move?
TSF, you're going to get hoodooed anyway you look at it. For that I have no answer. Yes, you would have gotten your insurance free for 3 years. All the while the even more debt is piling up. You tell me the answer. I kind of equate this to those commercials on tv for interest free or no payments at all on furniture, cars, etc for the first 1-2 years. You still gonna have to pay that interest on those loans, so you're not saving anything UNLESS you're able to save the whole amount you would owe and payment off at the end of the 1-2 years. That's not the way a government should be run or home finances for that matter. My point of view may sound rabidly republican to you, but I don't run my home finances based off the state or federal govt's handling of a basically nonexistent budget because it should be very clear and cogent it would be an epic financial failure. I run my household on a budget. Something the POTUS or anyone in government has slim to no knowledge about and it looks like slim's about to leave town. This country is going financially bankrupt.
