Republican governors gauge possible heat from Medicaid

Nov 22, 2013 Full story: The Washington Post 90

When Gov. Chris Christie decided that New Jersey would expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act , he opened the door to health-care coverage for 104,000 of the poorest Garden State residents, a move he said would save the state $227 million this year alone.

Free Clinics, did you read the attached article?

If you earn within 400% of the poverty level, or $47,000 a year if you're single, or $94,000 for a married couple you qualify for subsidies to purchase health care insurance.

This is not a free program, only for the poor or destitute, this is a program designed to aid the typical American wage earner. The poor and destitute have had access to medicaid since 1965, this is a program to help the working poor and middle class who can't afford comprehensive health care coverage and their jobs don't have a program in place.

Those are the individuals leaving hospitals on the hook for unpaid bills, or being driven to bankruptcy when they become ill because they can't get coverage or can not afford coverage.

I don't know, but based on the projected 'savings', it looks like it would be about $2k for each of the 104,000. So, the people who have insurance collectively pay $2K extra to cover for those 104K without insurance that get their care at free clinics and emergency rooms.
So, the taxpayers in NJ will now pay, what, about $800 a month or $9600 a year to subsidizes those who can't afford or won't buy health insurance. Using those numbers, NJ will 'save' almost a billion $.
What SHOULD they do? Come right out and say it, if you make less than $???, the state and federal government taxpayers will buy your health insurance for you. You can pick up your health insurance card along with your EBT card.

Remove your head from your azz, clean yourself off, open your eyes and start acting like a real American instead of a sheep. You just might learn something, like your precious messiah is a really bad guy.
Real Americans have nothing to do with bafoons like yourself. You sat idle while the Bush regime brought down America around you and said nothing now that the country is smoldering from the fall out of the Republican policies you feel a need to throw in from the sidelines...now do you see why republicans in NYC are a whispered bunch?

....... where were you when the republicans were strangling America with all that debt and signing up to those extraordinary future expenditures and financial obligation?

You were sleep walking then, so say sleep now.

That's right blame Bush, what's next? The reliable race card? The real Americans despise your beloved dictator in chief because he is the one attempting to destroy America and turn us all into clueless sheep like you. Wake-Up!

Obama and his regime will do whatever it takes to achieve total control of the American people. What the lunatic doesn't realize is that the real Americans will never let him win.
2012 was a tolerance test of what he, Harry, and Mimi could get aay with. The MSM is still munching upon the Senate UNDOING. The limits of their AgendaIDEOLOGY is still in a flexing mode, when 'the hunger' comes they will blame the farmers. This is a historical pattern.

You are right, the blame game will continue. The three stooges were dead wrong about what they thought they could get away with, 2014 is right around the corner. The obama regime is about to be disbanded.

America was destroy under the Bush regime following the Republican agenda when the Economy and Financial System collapsed. Where were you when the Automobile and Banking Industry were Nationalized?

Since the Republicans are so smart and all consuming, How in the hell did they allow a group of rag tag radical Muslims armed with sling shots in flip flops out think and manuver them into bankrupting the United States chasing them around the desert and into caves in the Afghanistan mountains?

George Bush allowed a radical group of religious fanatics to destroy America with box cutters and sling shots.

No. I am wide awake for the attempt to destroy America. Problem for the Democrats? The South. The Southern people are strong, Patriotic, they love this country. They love the Military, and understand what it means to serve. They will keep the Democrats from destroying the country.

The Result of Republican control in Washington had America two weeks from changing the national meal on Thanksgiving from Turkey to Chow Mein and Rice.

No America with a brain larger than a pecan supports the Republican party, thus the 7% approval rating or 1 in every 16 Citizens. America has had more than enough of the Stooges the Republican party puts forth as a candidate.

Speaking of Farmers, was it the Republicans who proposed the hair brain scheme to pay farmers not to farm?

Isn't that how a good portion of the Republicans in Congress receive Farm Subsidies while cutting appropriations on the other half of the Farm Bill to reduce Food Stamps to fixed income Senior Citizens, Children and our poorly paid Military Families?

The skunks passing themselves off as Republican congress members would pick the change from a blind man's cup........ If it meant more for their pockets.

You're last to the party of information. CBS more than loss any credibility they had with the 60 Minute bogus witness interview that sparked the Senate threats to filibuster all business.

The rolled out a proven liar who was pimping books to say anything as he did in hopes of pushing his book off the book store shelves.......

Now, CBS, 60 Minutes, the Book author, and again the Republicans that lined behind this mythical tale, look like complete idiots.....

Enroll America, the group leading efforts to enroll Americans in ObamaCare, is facing accusations again that it has violated its tax-exempt nonprofit status by engaging in partisan politics -- following the release of a video in which a top official seems to brag about his political connections.
The complaint was filed Friday by the group with the IRS.
In the video, Christopher Tarango, a communications director for the group, says: "I'm doing Enroll America right now. But I'm also, I shouldn't be saying this, but I'm also helping out with HD 50, so that's as partisan as it gets.
"There's a lot of talent that got sucked into Organizing for Action. I mean, there's a lot of talent that got sucked into Enroll America, but we are all Obama people."
