    The governors that did not sign up for the Medicare expansion will be proven correct. When the "boat load of Federal money" stops coming in a few years, then the states will be on the hook 100% for all those new medicare patients. Then what?

    Our "beloved" governor Bresher signed up so now it is all wine and roses, in 3 years when he is gone and Kentucky's medicare cost skyrocket, then what? You cannot take an "entitlement" away from people. Like a typical politician, do something now and not worry about the consequenses. Or better yet, the next governor (probably a Rep) can walk into this mess and be blamed for it despite it not being their fault.

    By the time the Employer Mandate is enforced, it's predicted 160 million will have had their policy cancelled. That IS Obama's fault....

    Its not a bad deal for the States and some of those states have as their citizens some of the poorest people in the nation.
    Medicaid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The federal government would pay 100% of the cost of Medicaid eligibility expansion in 2014, 2015 and 2016; 95% in 2017, 94% in 2018, 93% in 2019, and 90% in 2020 and all subsequent years.[SUP][11][/SUP]

    'However, the Supreme Court ruled in NFIB v. Sebelius that this provision of the ACA was coercive, and that the Federal government must allow states to continue at pre-ACA levels of funding and eligibility if they chose. Several states have opted to reject the expanded Medicaid coverage provided for by the act; over half of the nation's uninsured live in those states. They include Texas,[SUP][12][/SUP]Florida,[SUP][12][/SUP]Kansas,[SUP][12][/SUP]Georgia,[SUP][12][/SUP]Louisiana,[SUP][12][/SUP]Alabama,[SUP][12][/SUP] andMississippi.[SUP][12][/SUP] As of May 24, 2013 a number of states had not made final decisions, and lists of states which have opted out or were considering opting out varied,[SUP][13][/SUP][SUP][14][/SUP] but Alaska,[SUP][14][/SUP]Idaho,[SUP][15][/SUP]South Dakota,[SUP][15][/SUP]Nebraska,[SUP][13][/SUP]Iowa,[SUP][13][/SUP]Wisconsin,[SUP][15][/SUP]Indiana,[SUP][13][/SUP]Pennsylvania,[SUP][15][/SUP]Maine,[SUP][15][/SUP]North Carolina,[SUP][15][/SUP]South Carolina,[SUP][15][/SUP] and Oklahoma[SUP][15][/SUP] seemed to have decided to reject expanded coverage.[SUP][15][/SUP]As a result of the Supreme Court ruling, effective January 1, 2014, the federal government will pay 100 percent of defined cost[SUP][16][/SUP][SUP][17][/SUP] of certain newly eligible adult Medicaid beneficiaries in "Medicaid Expansion" states. The newly enrolled, who were already Medicare eligible as of 12/2013, would be covered under the pre- 2014 state / federal cost sharing rules in all states. Non-Expansion states will retain the program as it was already in force before January 2014.
    As of January 2014, confirmed opting out states include Alabama, Alaska, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin & Wyoming. States opting in after 2014 are Indiana & Pennsylvania.[SUP][18]'


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Again its the poorest citizens of those states that will go without, they aren't somebody in East Europe, those poor see better treatment



    Might be your [/SUP]
    "beloved" governor Bresher"

    may be reelected or move on to Higher Office, which raises a question Should the State interrupt it's business to aid the citizens or is the purpose of the State government to provide for the needs of the citizens?

    On February 2nd 1848, following a short and one-sided war, Mexico agreed to cede more than half its territory to the United States. An area covering most of present-day Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah, plus parts of several other states, was handed over to gringolandia. The rebellious state of Tejas, which had declared its independence from Mexico in 1836, was recognised as American soil too. But a century and a half later, communities have proved more durable than borders. The counties with the highest concentration of Mexicans (as defined by ethnicity, rather than citizenship) overlap closely with the area that belonged to Mexico before the great gringo land-grab of 1848. Some are recent arrivals; others trace their roots to long before the map was redrawn. They didn’t jump the border—it jumped them.
