10. Just to clarify, 133% of poverty level for an INDIVIDUAL is $14,856. Its $30,656 for a family of 4.

and $20,123 for a family of 2, and $25,390 for a family of 3.

>>The law extends Medicaid to anyone who earns up to 133 percent of the federal poverty level, which is $14,856 this year.

In 2012: http://aspe.hhs.gov/poverty/12fedreg.shtml

(household size, poverty guideline): (1, $11,170) (2, $15,130), (3, $19,090), (4, $23,050)

(household size, 133% of poverty): (1, $14,856) (2, $20,123), (3, $25,390), (4, $30,656)

And no, our governor (Minnesota) is not a F'ing AHole. He's Democrat (DFL) Mark Dayton, amazingly elected in 2010 in what was otherwise a very red year. Sadly in 2010 we also elected a radical F'ing AHole Republican majority house and senate -- very rare in post-WWII Minnesota history to have both houses red. So the legislature did what it could to obstruct things. But that goes away in January 2013 because we just elected Democratic majority house and senate, so we've hit the BLUE TRIFECTA - governor and both houses of the legislature, and by considerable majorities.

And no, obstructing Medicaid expansion is not going to lead to single-payer. Its going to lead to a lot of poor and near-poor people left uninsured.
