I said this before Congress voted to ruin our HC system...Did they really think adding 32 MILLION more Medicaid recipients to Medicaid was going to actually help matters? Many doctors either don't accept it or they only accept a limited amount of people on Medicaid, so that is 32 MILLION more people headed to the ER to get care for a "runny nose " and the people that actually pay for their HC insurance that actually have a real emergency will be stuck waiting or die waiting to get...Good luck trying to get an ambulance, they will be used as "taxis" to get to the ER by these Medicaid recipients, and you and I will be paying for them while we die waiting in the ER or and ambulance...Welcome to our new and "improved" HC system...At least members of Congress and their family's will be well taken on our dime, that is the important thing...

Miguel as a retired EMT I have been to countless "emergency" nosebleed calls. The 911 system is abused now and I am sure it will get much worse when this new entitlement system is fully implemented. As of your childish remark about FOX NEWS, the reason they are ranked #1 cable news channel for over 9 years straight is because they tell the truth- fair and balanced. Maybe you sir are watching too much MSNBC. Good day.

Hey douche bag, I worked in a hospital ER, the people on Medicaid abuse the system because they don't pay for their HC insurance. They would get carted into the ER by ambulances so they can get to the front of the line, not to mention the free ride to the ER they get...Overprotected? hardly son, I've fought in combat in the armed forces, Not one shred of my life has been in an "overprotected" environment...I was using the "runny nose" in quotation marks, do you know what that means? If not you need to take basic English classes...Keep drinking the koolaid because one day you or someone you know will need to go to an ER but when you get there you are going to wait for a very long time to get treatment because they will be overloaded with people on Medicaid especially when all of this HC reform kicks into high gear in 2014...Buy clue idiot, you have no idea what the hell you're talking about...
