No...it was a typo. But, we all know that fraud is rampant within the system and that ineligible people receive taxpayer-funded benefits every day. Further, your correction does not erase the fact that "legal" immigrants will receive taxpayer-funded benefits denied to U.S. citizens.
Worse, as soon as the WH/Congress pushes through their current amnesty proposal...MILLIONS of "suddenly-legal illegals" will immediately be eligible for these and other taxpayer-funded benefits.
Make no mistake...U.S. citizens are being gouged daily in the wake of destruction left by the progressive agenda.
That's a pretty horrendous typo.

However, it would appear as though the solution to this one lies at the state, rather than the federal level. It is up to individual states to determine whether or not to expand Medicaid--in generally in their best interests to do so.

But if, as you suggest, it is so incredibly easy to just get on Medicaid whether legally qualified or not--wouldn't folks just go and sign up and get on anyway?

You're not a big picture kinda gal...and a socialist, to boot.
Wouldn't expect you to comprehend states' rights issues versus the strong arm of the federal government.
Begging pardon, but Socialism, by definition, is pretty much a big picture kinda system.

Doesn't take much for you to go full juvenile, does it?
Your posts prove you are nothing but a self-important, leftist blowhard content to suck at the teat of the coercive state.
Whoa!

And you object to "full juvenile"?

Gotta keep those immigrants healthy, since they are here doing the jobs some of our "citizens" refuse to do.

End of the day, we are all better served by a healthy population--regardless of whether they are citizens or not.

...and regardless of whether all U.S. taxpayers are coerced into funding the healthcare of others -- citizens or not.

Note: Taking $5 from your left pocket and putting it into your right pocket is not the equivalent of a windfall.

The U.S. government [i.e., taxpayers] cannot afford to fully fund [doubling its current rate] state participation in the Medicaid expansion for the first three years, nor can it keep its promise to continue to cover 90% of costs [2017...into perpetuity], given that the U.S. government has no money and, in fact, is in debt into perpetuity.

And to achieve your end, are you OK with others suffering to get your desired result?

This is what Obama always wanted. Liberals are guilty of treason.
