I hate Obama because he is a Marxist that is out to destroy the USA and our constitution. His being black is irrelevant. He is a failure as a leader and an American.
You're obviously a quite passionate person who's feeling distraught at the moment. I must question where you get your information. I also question the origin of your hatred. As a veteran, you deserve to feel better. I hope you will soon.

All you savage racist b@stards create the conditons that hold blacks down. How can one expect to get a good decent paying job when your white owned corporations ship jobs overseas. Blacks move n when you skunks abandon the properties for better suburban digs....which in effect short changes the treasury. Like i said, kkrackas destroy things and leave the crumbs behind.
You live in an imaginary world don't you? Whites move out and abandon properties? Why would any white do that? Why would you abandon a house and property worth $150,000 or more? Who leaves that kind of investment behind?

When you wake up out of that fantasy world of yours, you'll realize blacks are the ones that ruin everything. They ruin neighborhoods, malls, schools, businesses, anything they touch. Blacks move in first and then the whites move out because who wants to live with blacks? You people can't even stand to live with your own race. That's why you're always trying to move in with whitie.

Pitiful.

The states administer [federal] programs with federal mandates. All federal money comes with strings attached. The states can add benefits, such a mine, to federal standards, but they are limited when it comes to innovation do to federal law.
The tenth amendment allows for states rights. Article 1, section 8 limits federal power.
You just said it yourself...Obama [allowed] state commissioners...
A bit totalitarian, isn't it? My state chose to expand on Medicaid because it really wasn't an expansion. We pay 200% of the poverty line while Obamacare is 138%. It's free money for us. A one size fits all federal law really doesn't work.

What is "we pay 200% of the poverty line".......

the federal level is $11,490, you are considered to qualify for medicaid enrollment by the Feds if you earn lower than up to 133% of the $11,490 poverty level, or $15 281.

Any income between 133% or $15,281 and 400%, or $45960.00 qualifies for ACA Subsidies.

Some States have means testing and lower income requirements. In Texas any income over $8000 prevents participation in their Medicaid programs.

Then there is means testing in some States. Anyone earning less than that state's prescribed income level can not have assets in excess of $2000 dollars.

Only where "the POWERS not delegated to the United States, or Federal Government by the CONSTITUTION, nor PROHIBITED by the Constitution."

There is no States' rights except limited rights where the Federal Government or Constitution has not acted or delegated to the Feds, issue before that State created a law so long as that state created law doesn't violate in any manner one of the laws in the Constitution.

Now with Insurance, which is commerce the Constitution delegates the oversight of commerce to the United States Government, that has been confirmed by the Supreme Court in 1945. That didn't preclude the Federal Government granting States authorization to manage State Insurance Commissions until at such time the Federal Government created a National Commission of Insurance.

10th Amendment
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

Again, there is no States rights, States can't be trusted to enforce Citizens protections as have been thoroughly demonstrated since the adoption of the United States Constitution.

"For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system that has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations."

We weren't talking about ACA subsidies. It was about Medicaid expansion. Texas didn't expand on Medicaid. NJ has been paying 200% of the poverty line to Medicaid recipients before ACA.

The ACA was argued under the commerce clause, but the penalty was redefined as a tax, remember? The penalty was "fatal" to the commerce clause.

You're stuck on [protections] or civil rights, I assume. State constitutions mimic the constitution with protections. There are federal courts that hear cases of protection abuse against a state. That is the federal power. There is nothing about the ACA in the [delegated powers] of the federal government and the constitution doesn't prohibit it to the states, as stated. It's about something that could lead to a future totalitarian central government when the federal government reaches too far into the public's personal lives..

So Obama has bee President in his second term for almost a year now, what has he achieved? Nothing. Our bridges, and roads, parks, and everything the Government is supposed to be doing is still falling apart. The money for the shovel ready projects all spent on the poor, and unfortunate.

What is paying 200% of the poverty line to Medicaid?

Insurance is a marketable product, thus the Federal Government under the powers of the Commerce Claus has the right to regulate the industry, period

State Constitutions are BOUND to the United States Constitution, which is the Supreme Law of America. There is no law or Constitution higher, and some State Constitutions were written before the United States Constitution.

ARTICLE VI

Sec 2

This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

(notwithstanding preposition all the same, despite, even, however, in any case, in any event, in spite of, nevertheless, none the less,)

The US Constitution supersedes all State Constitutions and or laws created. There is no States Rights in America.

What money spent on the poor?$5 Billion in Food Stamps for two years? Are you kidding.

Infrastructure spending bills are sitting in the House where they have been for 3 years. The Senate has already voted and approved those measures.

you're not up on what's happening in American politics as much as you'd like to lead others to believe you are.

Not if congress grants an exception like FDR and the Democrats did for the Insurance Industry with the McCarran–Ferguson Act after the SCOTUS in 1944 ruled in United States v. South-Eastern Underwriters Association that the federal government could regulate insurance companies under the authority of the Commerce Clause in the U.S. Constitution.

I would rather see Food Stamps eliminated completely and that money allocated for Infrastructure spending bills instead and then people could go and work for their money and the Federal Government would have something to show for like FDR's New Deal Projects such Hoover Dam, TVA and a least of others were as how the liberals of today think the Federal Government has nothing to show for except debt.

To Medicaid recipients. People making double the poverty line set by the fed can receive Medicaid benefits here.

Regulate insurance, yes. Compel the purchase, no.

You missed "the laws of the United States which [shall] be made in [pursuance] thereof". The federal government is also bound to the law of the land which contains the 10th Amendment. There is nothing in the enumerated powers of congress that addresses public welfare. What isn't enumerated in Article 1 is reserved to the states. Powers prohibited from the states is treaties with foreign nations, waging war, and so on.

An erroneous supreme court decision concerning social security changed the welfare clause from welfare of the United State to the welfare of its public. FDR was threatening to stack the court.
