Sure, until they start paying for their portion. Where is this magic money coming from. I laugh when I hear the term "health care reform". Expansion perhaps, reform not at all.

It's not a whole hell of a lot different from McCain's plank in 2008 when he suggested a $5 thousand credit for people to buy health insurance. The real reform will come when we get the cost of that Band-Aid down from $9 thousand. That's not Obama's doing. The Republican controlled states will cave on this, one by one!

What "benefits" are there to putting more people on the government dole?

Well, from a statist perspective I guess it makes perfect sense...all the better to keep everybody in line and compliant.

Yay, freedom.

That last sentence should read: "It's hard to take something away once you have given it to them for "free". Yes, "magic money"!! It certainly is not health care reform! And yes, when you support them, you control them.

They did build a revenue stream, through taxes, into the law and every time the Republicans tried to repeal Obamacare the Congressional Budget Office said that a repeal would create a larger federal deficit. This is not rocket science here. The article says that for every dollar a state spends on expanding Medicaid they will receive $13.41 in return from the federal government, and the 24 holdout states will be walking away from $600 billion by the year 2022. How long do you think the rest of the states will hold out?

Ten states, including Florida and Texas, are keeping health insurance away from 3.6 million people:

Yep, that's one of the reasons why Rick Snott (Fl) is going to lose his seat in November...

It isn’t free money or free health insurance.

How can you lose health insurance if you didn’t have and didn’t pay for it in the first place?

The Democrats claim they are compassionate, charitable, and are the policy of tolerance.

Yet…

Their “compassionate” policies keep the poor dependent on government.

Their “charitable” policies give away money, services and goods that don’t belong to them.

Their “tolerance” is only granted if you agree with them…otherwise they call names like: racist and SNOT.

Yep, I heard somebody on the radio the other night ask if you would be allowed to just go up to somebody and put your hand in their pocket and take $2000 without their permission. The answer of course is no. But it is no different than the liberals (and the conservatives, just not as much) forcing us to take it out of our paychecks to give to others.
