41. Gardasil to be mandated, pap smears won't even be funded
after states spend $360 each to innoculate medicaid children.

There are 770,000 children in my state on medicaid, and if just 1/10 get the vaccine,
this will be an expense of over $27 Million extra to the already strained medicaid budget.

Families will have to be cut from medicaid, and surely there will be less pap smears funded.

Our state has already said that medicaid will pay for the Gardasil, but not everyone
who needs medicaid can get it right now.

And 1 out of 5 people in my state have NO medical coverage AT ALL.
