Talk about looking a gift horse in the mouth. They depend on taxpayers and the State to provide them with healthcare coverage, free of charge, but then want to sue because they didn't understand what was going on? Give me a flipping break. How about just be thankful you have insurance coverage - there are a lot of people in this state who do not have ANY type of insurance because they don't make enough to pay for it themselves, but they make too much money to qualify for Medicaid. Leave it to those taking the most handouts to be the most ungrateful.

bee: Are you really that retarded? Its your way of thinking that ruins this country.
To even qualify for Medicaid you have to have:
# Low income families with children
# Children only
# Pregnant women
# Non-citizens with medical emergencies
# Aged and/or disabled individuals
Now if you were one of these people (god forbid) would you want someone ripping you off, taking advantage of you, and having some jackass labeling you as "ungrateful"? Get a clue retard.

I began working small jobs at age 11. At 15 I got a social security card and a summer job. From that point on, I worked full time 3 months a year and 20 hrs a week the rest of the year. I worked full time through college, and full time ever since. For many years, I did a lot of work for charity groups and got only a small stipend of $620 a month, with NO benefits. After working for 48 years and paying into social security, I became disabled. My final job was caring for elderly Alzheimers patients and I caught a hospital super-bug called MRSA. It kills more people that aids. Covered with recurrent ghastly boils for years, I also have been diagnosed as clinically depressed, high blood pressure, cholesterol, nearly legally blind, waiting for knee surgery on both knees requiring cane or wheelchair. I get $16 a month in food stamps, and a small social security benefit. Only after I pay $665 in medical bills a month will medicaid pay anything. Could YOU live on $200 a month? Am I really a lazy deadbeat?
