Some people call the Medicaid program an "evil thing" that needs to be erased. The fact is that w/o the Medicaid program kicking-in, many people would not have any opportunity for healthcare.
If, the politicians want to eliminate Medicaid, then they better find a way to lower the cost of health care. Instead of taking funding from the insurance lobbyists, they could turn that money back into the money pit.
Either we respect life and take care of human beings or we dismiss the ill and face the consequences.
