That's even more bogus than the original scenario. If he has assets in the neighborhood of $5 Million and no verifiable income, in Virginia he has to sell or take out a loan to get liquid they're not providing him help. ACA is not Free Health Care. He's barking up the wrong tree or can't read to understand the intent of the program.
There is no question about it, if he has children and a worth of $5 Million living in Virginia he either will sell those assets, or go to jail and have the state seized his property to take care of his Children and provide them with insurance and anything else they need.
Looks like to me he's attempting an elaborate scheme to be a dead beat
If he wanted his child covered he should have simply called his insurance agent, at $5 Million in assets there's nothing the ACA can do to help or harm his situation.

That's probably true, I don't know. You live in Virginia. Tony indicates in post #3302 only an income is considered when one is approved for Medicaid. I know all assets are considered when applying for long term Medicaid like a nursing home. There are people here that put assets in their children's names before applying for nursing homes. That has to be done at least two years before applying.

You don't have any facts to back up your bogus talk. Shut the hell up!!!!!!!!!!
You're so full of it. The only projects that Republican governors refused were Trains To Nowhere.

Generally....when blacks move into those same suburban neighborhoods such as you live in....the first thing to happen is a "FSBO" sign gets put up. Its a known fact that whites hate living near a black person no matter how much they can afford being there. The truth of the matter, y'all think a black family moving in only reinforces your racist mindsets that the black man only wants to screw your wives and daughters. To hell with you wrinkled up old azzes. Get a tan m"fcker!!!!!!!!!!
No, whites move out because blacks decreasing home values is a track record. Where have blacks ever moved where housing values remain the same or increase? There is no such place. Where have blacks ever populated where violent crime and theft stayed the same or decreased? The schools stayed the same or improved?

That's why whites move out.

You're correct. Income is the determining factor when applying for ACA subsidies but Medicaid is a State run program with funding provided by the Federal Government, and States create their own eligibility criteria. That criteria in Virginia is Means Tested.

Virginia has not expanded Medicaid. If this caller didn't qualify for subsidies because of his not having sufficient income he could still apply and pay the premiums for a policy from a participating insurance company listed in the Virginia Health Care exchange simply because the State hasn't expanded medicaid and his assets disqualify his participation under the Virginia criteria.

Well, that clears some things up. So, this guy who claims he is being forced into Medicaid by Obamacare isn't being honest.

So Obama has bee President in his second term for almost a year now, what has he achieved? Nothing. Our bridges, and roads, parks, and everything the Government is supposed to be doing is still falling apart. The money for the shovel ready projects all spent on the poor, and unfortunate.
The money for shovel ready projects was ear marked for union employees,and likely made union leaders wealthy in return for their support of Obama in the 2008 election, not for the poor and unfortunate.
