Am I getting this right?

Many states (all freaking Red) refuse to take the Medicaid dollars from the Fed in order to provide subsidies for those who qualify for them..

Doesn’t this practically negate much of punch the AHA will have in these states...

And can’t the funds being rejected by those idiots be turned around and poured into the states already receiving them
in order to make their programs even stronger.? And point out the strengths even more adamantly .

1. yup, all the poor folk in many Southern states won't get any help

 

or benefits, it is a huge oversight. And many of them are poor blacks, by the way. I just read a news article saying that actually.

5. Not an oversight...

this was in the original bill, but struck down by the Supreme Court IIRC.

2. hospitals hate this

because they still have to supply ER services. The next thing will be hospitals closing in red states, or demanding to charge states for ER services for the uninsured.

3. Yes. Republican states have screwed their poor residents. Again.

With the help of the Supreme Court.

This does reduce the number of people who will get coverage (which would include free wellness and preventive care), which kind of undermines the entire point of the law.

4. Yup

 

Very short sighted on many levels of these governors. I feel for the people of those states that fall in the gap.

At least people in those states who do fall into the gap are immune from the penalty.

6. But Christ this is so transparent and mean- hearted ..

I feel most in these states don’t understand the relationship between the Medicaid infusions and its relationship to the ACA.. If they did I think the people of these states would be in the streets and on their Capitol’s steps..

And sadly the ones who feel comfortable being dumb will just say.”you see it just doe not work”..

7. I feel for the poor people

 

But a lot of those poor people voted for this, not really knowing they were poor too. Eventually something must and will be done, but maybe this is a good hard lesson come 2014. If some have to wait till next election, maybe they'll think twice about voting for the assholes that denied them health care. We've all waited this long. They may have to reap what they have sown.
