Under the health overhaul that President Barack Obama signed into law in 2010, states have the option of extending Medicaid coverage to people making up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level. At 138 percent of the poverty level, a person would have an income of about $15,000. The Medicaid income cutoff in Mississippi now is about $5,500, and even under that limit, the state still does not cover many adults.

Maybe if everyone came off of vacation, we could get something done.

I think many clinics and hospitals will close - I have heard a figure of maybe another 300,000 people on Medicaid in this State, we cannot afford that. I figure all the handouts have to stop sooner or later and maybe it is time. We may all have to suffer from loss of medical care, but maybe it will help get things back in balance. If you do not want to work, then just suffer in my opinion.

Where I see a problem is if you work for minimum wage most of the time these jobs offer no medical coverage. If medical coverage is offered into these jobs, do you think more would work? I think if this was done and medical coverage was offered then many of the government freebies would have to stop. The excuse of needing medical coverage would not be legitimate anymore.

I am all for helping a low income working person have medical insurance. Everyone can't be high wage earners and I am thankful for the people that check my groceries and pick up my trash. I just cannot see giving it to a qualified person that wants to sit home and drink rather than work.

Have to agree, Obamacare is really going to mess things up.

You know Scoop I think it will come back to bite the entitlement group just as much as the old folks. Hopefully people will see that they made a mistake with their president.
