Most attention surrounding the Obamacare decision has centered on whether the individual mandate is a penalty or a tax. However, the other part of that decision, allowing states to opt out of Medicaid expansion, could prove problematic in 2014, depending on what states in thrall to the Republican Party do.

"If your governor says no to the Medicaid expansion, it’s up to you to provide him or her with some some great government benefits… unemployment checks." amen, Brother TomCat. Of course I live in one of those states that will opt out, because "we don't need no stinkin' government" And...Texas has more RED dumbasses than should be allowed by law.

It's one thing to stand up for integrity and another to be obstinate and stupid.

Hopefully, we will still have a Democratic governor in Ky when that happens.

I used to think that Rick Scott, like Scott Walker, was behaving like an ass to please his corporate benefactors. But now I'm convinced: he's the genuine article!

I hope the Republican governors who turn down the optional expansion of Medicaid get exactly what they deserve --evicted from the governor's mansion at the next voting opportunity!

Do I recall correctly that Palin, the guano bimbo, was talking it up about Governors getting tough and opting out? And then there is Allen West from Florida talking about Mr Obama saying he'd "rather having you be his slave" over the healthcare issue.

Where do they get these brain dead morons? These people (and I use the term loosely) have no sense of decency; no compassion at all (I think I have more compassion in the hang nail on my pinky finger!); so sense of social justice.

And what is in the water in Florida that Floridians are stuck with Allen West and Rick Scott? According to the video of Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the House talking to the Ryan budget in 7/2011, West has a whole lot of seniors etc in his redrawn district that rely on Medicaid. I really wonder if he wants a 2nd term in Congress?

John: I don't mean to be a thorn in your side, but I couldn't help myself and checked the facts regarding your post. You might want to read about it yourself: BUSH's FORT HOOD VISIT

Unfortunately, this happens all too often, and a lot of opinions are influenced by these manufactured items. These pieces go viral on the internet and "the information highway" becomes the "misinformation highway." Fortunately, we have sites like Snopes and FactCheck to investigate these items because an error is one thing --but a carefully executed lie is quite another.

Thanks to all. Major kudos to Sue. I messaged the link to John. I'm sure he believed it when he posted it.

Lynn, did you see this?
Top Reagan-Appointed Judge Slams ‘Goofy’ Republican Party

Reagan-appointed Judge Richard Posner is one of the most highly regarded judges in the country. But over the past 10 years, Posner said, “there’s been a real deterioration in conservative thinking. And that has to lead people to re-examine and modify their thinking.”

“I’ve become less conservative since the Republican Party started becoming goofy,” he said.
