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.

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.

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?

I am for doing good to the poor, but...I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed...that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. 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 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.

Teaching the children that one should not just passively let a group of legislative bullies repeatedly abuse, demean and welch on contracts is an important lesson. I would like to see a real union sweep through NC like a dose of Epsom salts. Then the shit would hit the fan. It has always puzzeled my as to why NC teachers are such a passive lot.

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.

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.
