I notice that our governor McCrory had traveled to Washington DC yesterday to speak to the Heritage Foundation in an effort to gain validating support for NC republikans giving away 15 billion dollars and 50,000 jobs because of the rejection of Medicaid expansion that NC taxpayers had already paid for. Did NC taxpayers pay for his trip and expenses to DC?

As of 06/30 of this year Medicaid had almost a 400 million dollar overrun. Now that's a system that definitely sounds like it needs to be expanded (sarcasm).

This article is written by a NC democrat member of congress. Whose numbers are incorrect yours or his:

I would like to apologize to everyone on Topix for my sweetie waco's behavior. Needless to say, everyone knows that he's bipolar and moved to North Carolina to avoid being committed to a psychiatric hospital in Texas. Waco may be a mental defective but all in all he's pretty much a harmless nut. That's why I sometimes call him my little Almond Joy.

You tell me. This person reports 23,000 jobs in the medical field that would have been created. Most economist will tell you that creating one job also creates another spin off job, although at lower pay. 23,000X2= 46,000 jobs lost due to the rejection of Medicaid expansion. If I concede to the lower number, then the stupid republican rejection of 46,000 new jobs would be 8% less stupid than a stupid republican rejection of 50,000 new jobs. OK, if I assume that republiKans are only 92% as stupid as I had figured, then that is still 100% more stupidity that this state can afford.

Washington Post reports total cost for the USA. That would be around 16.1 billion dollars per state.

Starting tomorrow, NC teachers can carry guns on school property. Finally, republicans have done something I agree with.

TSF, need I remind you this was not a republikan you whine about from N.C. but a demokrat who you seem to think is above reproach. Again, whose numbers are correct? Forget being on the same page, you guys aren't even in the same book with your figures. Plus you never addressed the 400 million dollar Medicaid overrun. You're the numbers person, but my mediocre math vs yours tells me if the state couldn't handle those currently on Medicaid with such a huge overrun and Medicaid is expanded, how in the world could this expansion be covered.

He's going to tell you that the Federal Govt was going to cover Medicaid for the next 3 years but what he's NOT going to tell you is that AFTER those 3 years are up, the state of NC would be required to repay the money spent by the Feds PLUS interest!
If we can't afford the overrun now, how in the hell are we going to afford those cost plus interest?
I say kudos to the Gov for having the balls to stand up to the Feds in defense of NC's taxpayers! Why should my taxes be taken to pay for Medicaid when those in need will be covered by my taxes through Obamacare?

And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.

Franklin knew this way back then, dem-0s aint figured it out yet! OR, maybe they have, and WANT people to stay poor and dependent on them?
It's referred to as "The Govt Plantation."
The Republicans pushed for the CRA allowing blacks to vote against strong opposition from the Commucrats. The Commucrats saw the CRA as a way to create their plantation for the poor and the blacks (since a majority were poor at this time) so they took the credit. They opened the gates to their plantation with programs such as welfare, food stamps, Medicaid, etc..., and with their indoctrination through education and they've been attracting the "dumbmasses" ever since!
Their not stupid, it was by design in order to guarantee votes! It's the poor that's stupid for falling for this BS and it's also the producers that are stupid for allowing it to continue!

That's like saying the Tyrant (my new name for the Ruler) isn't American, he's Hawaiian!(Now before you start with Hawaii is in America, you must first realize the Hawaiians despise America. If you've ever been to Hawaii you'd understand.) The Tyrant grew up in Kenya, Indonesia, and Hawaii and was raised and tutored by known card carrying communist....where is his love for America? It won't be long before his reign is over,(and I hope this great country is still a glimpse of what it once was)....Oh happy day!

I saw where the govt teachers are planning a walkout on Nov 4th in retaliation to incentive based pay and the loss of tenure even though state law bans strikes or work stoppages by public employees.
Teach the children it's ok break the law, that's real responsible! I hope every one of them get arrested!

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?

The republiKan leader and choice for president, Twitt Romney , calls the aborted fetus "medical waste " and burns them for a huge profit in his medical waste incinerator.. My attacks on republikans are not endorsements of democrats, but I have to say that democrats are not the only ones supporting abortion, which coincidentally, I vehemently oppose.

Pro, I actually knew that but left it out to see if that would be addressed. It sounds good to say that the federal govt was going to pay for three years and leave out the pay back with interest part; however, in a state where Medicaid is so mishandled and is WAY over budget it's a recipe for financial disaster.

Pro, send me 15 trillion dollars and then refuse to take any of it back to show me that you have "balls". I will smile, keep the money, and let you have you fantasy.
