Study: Without Medicaid expansion, poor forgo medical care

There are 24 comments on the The Tribune story from Monday Oct 15, titled Study: Without Medicaid expansion, poor forgo medical care. In it, The Tribune reports that:

Low-income people in states that haven't expanded Medicaid are much more likely to forgo needed medical care than the poor in other states, according to a government report due out Monday amid election debates from Georgia to Utah over coverage for the needy. The nonpartisan Government Accountability Office worked with the National Center for Health Statistics to analyze federal survey data from 2016.

Doesn't matter. Nobody is going to pay for it and you can't make them.

Pretty soon no one will be able to accomplish anything without a smart phone.

As for the cigarettes, it may take medical intervention to help them quit.

Now if we get to the point of banning abortion, who’s gonna deliver all those babies and pay that bill?

And then the problem of who will care for the babies to become productive human beings?

No solution is easy when it comes to the health and well being of people.

When we restrict abortion to the first few weeks women will have to stay sober, and use birth control. There was a woman on television bragging she had just had her 29th abortion. There are women that use it for birth control. That is fine as long as she or the deadbeat daddy pays for it. The next generation is about to find out we aren't going to take care of them in the way they would like to become accustomed. Only the elderly, ill, disabled, and children will be taken care of, not the lazy able bodied.

Three states are bringing abortion rights, and rights of the unborn before the Supreme Court this session. The first is from Indiana, and was signed by Vice President Pence when he was Governor of Indiana. Abortion might not be stopped, but it will be severely restricted.

If we can stop the rigging before November 6th we will get a true vote this time. Wouldn't it be nice if Democrats loved the country enough to not try to rig our elections? To them it is a way of life

We shall see in 19 days. All those people that show up at Trump Rallies vote, as do their children, and parents, and relatives. Hillary couldn't fill a H S auditorium. Face it.
democrats are still mired down with the Clinton leadership, and they are losers.

It's a continued lie. The poor can walk into a hospital and get necessary care any time they need it, exactly as it has been in America for hundreds of years and improving in character and frequency of care with time. Democrat perverts want to turn "medical care" into free sex transition therapies and surgeries for younger and younger children against their better interests. This is the "hands on" approach you will get if you let Democrats make any gains against their 2010 and 2014 significant losses.

Sigh, the cost of treating walk ins with no money or insurance costs everyone more in higher prices on the itemized bill and that results in higher insurance premiums.

In other words, those u\of us who pay our bills or pay for insurance are getting scammed.

Why are you ok with being scammed instead of making sure everyone pays their fair share?
