The medicaid expansion is costing the states nothing in the first few years, and the feds will pick up 90% of the cost beyond that.
The increased coverage will save the states money in the long run by providing people living on the edge of the poverty line access to preventative medicine that they don't have presently.
Like I said, Its financial. Kasich is smarter than Karl.

Actually I was referring to the absence of disclosure in JobsOhio, which remains inside baseball for now.

But you are correct that it applies just as much to Medicaid as well. The feds can't handle the cost of Medicaid as is, and it will be downstreamed once the credit downgrades start coming in the next presidential administration.

House Republicans may sue over Kasich’s Medicaid expansion
Let's look at this closely, shall we?.

Ohio House Republicans approve a bill specifically authorizing the Governor to do exactly what he is considering doing. The Governor signs it.

Now they start grumbling about filing a lawsuit certain to be unsuccessful, and talk of removing members of the controlling board...(I think this is deja vu all over again...hmmm). http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2011/...

Who, pray tell, will be footing the bill for legal fees fro the petitioners? It won't be the State of Ohio.

Who, pray tell, will be footing the bill for the respondents? You, me, and every other Ohio taxpayer.

I would wonder whether they even have standing to sue. I'm not so sure they do, without scouring the state for a few disgruntled taxpayers whose names they can insert in the caption of the complaint.

Take a look at the comments under that article Tippy. If the GOP doesn't stop all of its nonsense, they are simply digging their own graves.

Reality? Look at the reality of the sinkhole the GOP just fell into in Washington over the past three weeks. Did you see John McCain interviewed last night?

Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) will circumvent the majority-Republican legislature in his state to advance an expansion of Medicaid benefits to 275,000 people under President Barack Obama's health care reform law, according to a report published Friday in the Columbus Dispatch.
Kasich, who has been campaigning across Ohio and lobbying lawmakers since February to accept federal money to provide Medicaid to more poor residents, will present a proposal to the state funding board that could fast-track the expansion, the Columbus Dispatch reported. The GOP-led legislature has blocked Kasich's proposal to date.
The health care reform law, known as the Affordable Care Act, calls for all states to expand Medicaid coverage to anyone who earns up to 133 percent of the federal poverty level in 2014, which is $15,282 for a single person this year. Only about half the states are going ahead with the expansion, however, as Republican governors and legislators have refused to accept the federal dollars that would finance it. When the Supreme Court upheld the law last year, justices also ruled that states could opt out of the Medicaid expansion. States' refusal to expand the program is expected to result in millions of low-income Americans, mostly in the South, remaining uninsured.
Kasich is one of 10 Republican governors who have broken with their party to support the Medicaid expansion, although they all maintain they continue to oppose the underlying Obamacare law. Most recently, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett (R) unveiled a plan that would partially privatize and expand Medicaid, following similar laws enacted by Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad (R) and Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe (D) and the GOP-led legislatures in their states. Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) also endorsed the Medicaid expansion, only to see it blocked by his state legislature.
A seven-member budgetary panel in Ohio, called the Controlling Board, will consider Kasich's request to accept $2.5 billion of federal Medicaid money that would provide health benefits to about 275,000 people, according to the Columbus Dispatch. The expansion could be in place as early as Jan. 1, when the Medicaid expansion is supposed to take effect in other states, the newspaper reported. The panel includes a chairman Kasich appointed, two Democrats and four Republicans. Kasich needs only four members to vote in his favor to adopt the expansion, according to the Columbus Dispatch.
Under the health care reform law, the federal government will pay the full cost of covering newly eligible Medicaid recipients from 2014 through 2016, after which the share gradually declines until it reaches 90 percent in 2022 and future years. That compares to the average 57 percent share the federal government pays states for current Medicaid enrollees.
When will you Conservatives get it? It's not about doing the. "Will" of the people, it's about stock options, political nest lining, golfing with executives of large insurance firms to vie for a bone in their bowl once the teanuts vote them out of office. They give a shyt about you or your clinging to the constitution.

JobsOhio is the perfect Trojan Horse for funneling money to GOP candidates. Kaslick played with the Big Boys on Wall Street, he knows exactly what he's doing. He's way smarter than Karl and Diamond.

I guess you didn't read the part about Kasich using his veto power to strike the language prohibiting funding of the expansion.

I guess the House GOP members who approved the bill were too stupid to figure out that if they wished to not grant the controlling board the ability to approve the expansion regardless of the legislature's intent, they should have removed that language from the bill before they sent it to the Governor for his signature into law.

I guess the House GOP membership really just doesn't care about people living on the edge of poverty. Imagine that!!!

Ya know Tippy, it sounds to me as if the House GOP decided to kick the can down the road in order to get the budget passed, they knew exactly what they were doing, and the Governor kicked that can right back at them.

Good for the Governor.

Poster 33, tell me you ain't meaning John McCain, Westmoreland County, Virginia is the birthplace of McCain's messiah.
McCain's messiah was born in Mombassa, British East Africa!
General Robert E. Lee was a believer and follower of the Constitutional United States and choose to go with his home state of Virginia when she seceded.
John McCain is a socialist sympathiser with his socialist president Oblamer! John McCain is Washingtonian, a DCer.
John McCain, a follower of Robert E. Lee. In those famous words of my VC friend, HAHAHAHAH!!!

When to "care", means tax increases and growth of the welfare class with a chip on their shoulder, yes I do not "care".

Welfare statism ruins initiative, industry and economy. Medicaid expansion is all about growing the number of people getting transfer payments, to further establish the power of the left.

It ain't Republicans turning on each other but people who till now had no choice but to work through the Repubs and are finding out the Republican hierarchy are actually RINOs in cahoots with the socialist party you know as the Democrats.
The DC Republican hierarchy will turn on Cruz and others of his ilk in a heartbeat, just because Cruz and company don't like the direction to the left this country is careening towards no more than we do, but they haven't come to grips with getting disgusted with their own party and creating their own. But it's coming and I hope it gets here before the balkanisation we are heading for gets here. But it remains to be seen.
I sincerely hope there are more Clement Vallandigham type people in Ohio than there were when he was living. When the time comes, I hope you people in Ohio make the right decision.
Poster 36, I hope you are having fun watching America disintegrating before our very eyes. What a blessed day, you write. You must be a socialist at the very least or possibly further left.

so according to you BB, the tea party shut down the government.
Oblamer had nothing to do with the shutdown.
The Democrats had nothing to do with the shutdown.
The Republicans had nothing to do with the shutdown.
Totally on the Tea Party. For having such few numbers they sure do have a lot of power.
Who does George Soros fund? Tea Party?
Who does Hollywood fund? Tea Party?
Are Sean Penn and Jane Fonda tea party?
Everywhere I turn on these threads all this bs is blamed on the Tea Party. I didn't realise they had so much power with so few numbers.
And to think 24 billion dollars it cost the US economy could have went to one of Oblamers favourite charities, muzlim brotherhood but no the tea partiers had to shut down the government. How am I doing with your leftist socialist bureau of disinformation. Am I getting the hang of it?
Tea Party. Everywhere I go, no matter what topix, I am accused of being tea party. I believe in the Constitution of the United States and being governed totally by it, making me an American Constitutionalist which baraq has figuratively pissed on it because he ain't a Constitutionalist.
I am looking forward to February. Have a tea party day.
