Some Republican governors and state lawmakers are eager to opt out of the expansion of Medicaid under 'Obamacare,' now that the Supreme Court has removed the penalty. But millions could remain uninsured. Expect this to play big in some state elections.

I think this is what my mother meant by cutting off your nose to spite your face.

AFTER PAYING 40K IN CALIFORNIA OVER A DECADE INTO MY HALF OF MY INSURANCE WITH THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, I AM NOW SEMI-RETIRED AND HAVE NO INSURANCE. I READ THAT IF I DON'T GET INSURED UNDER OBAMACARE, THE FED PENALTY IS UNDER 300 DOLLARS FOR THE YEAR. WELL, IF YOU ARE OFF THE GRID, IT WON'T MATTER. IF YOU ARE ON...THEY WILL TAKE IT IN TAXES.
300 DOLLARS IS ALOT LESS THAN THE 5K I SPENT AS A TEACHER. BE IT THAT I STAY UNINSURED,
IT IT SEEMS A FAIR DEAL. HOPEFULLY, I CAN AFFORD TO GET INSURED. WE SHALL SEE.

The people know what this will mean for them, and will vote the Republicans out accordingly because Americans are not stupid enough to fall for lies beyond a certain point, and that point has been reached. I believe that by doing this, the Republicans have sealed their fates even more strongly.

From the article: "Suddenly, states now have the option of refusing to expand eligibility for Medicaid – the federal-state health-insurance program for the poor – without penalty, under the court’s health-care ruling last week. And some Republican governors are leaping at the chance to assert their opposition to Medicaid expansion, in the name of fiscal responsibility."

Denying health care to sick children in the name of fiscal responsibility appears to be a partisan choice. Very hypocritical on the part of the party that touts its Christian values.

How can anyone in their right minds think that limiting care is a viable alternative to expanding care? I suppose it makes sense, to some people...
