Good LTTE re SUBSIDY-Sam's poor experiment with the lives of Kansans:

http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2012/nov/09/letter-poor-decision/

Once again, another of Gov. Brownback’s extremely poor decisions are coming back to haunt him. However the real losers are his constituents. First, Brownback refused to accept $31.5 million, which Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger was ready to use to develop our own insurance exchange. Then, when the U.S. Supreme Court validated the Affordable Care Act, Gov. Sam refused to have Praeger form our own exchange because he wagered once more that Gov. Willard Romney would win the election and somehow the so-called “Obamacare” would be changed. In the meantime wise state administrations, some Republican, have already begun to formulate their own exchanges while Kansans will be forced to accept a federal program with federal guidelines. In other words, we won’t have a choice.

Whether Gov Brownback will accept federal money available to expand our Medicaid is another matter he will have to decide. It is doubtful if he will use the opportunity to help the poor and disabled among us with this part of the Affordable Care Act.

Mr. Brownback is the most ideological and destructive governor we have had in my lifetime. There are two more years left before we can collectively vote him out of office unless he resigns on his own.
