  • Obamacare Faces Near-Solid Block In The South

    Fine. Let the insurance agencies have them and the rest of us will have single payer. They can go back to the way things were if they want. We'll see if that continues to work out not so well for them. And why is the rest of us funding their unhealthy lifestyles?

    Obamacare Faces Near-Solid Block In The South

    As more Republicans give in to President Barack Obama's health-care overhaul, an opposition bloc remains across the South, including from governors who lead some of the nation's poorest and unhealthiest states.

    "Not in South Carolina," Gov. Nikki Haley declared at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference. "We will not expand Medicaid on President Obama's watch. We will not expand Medicaid ever."

    Widening Medicaid insurance rolls, a joint federal-state program for low-income Americans, is an anchor of the law Obama signed in 2010. But states get to decide whether to take the deal, and from Virginia to Texas

    Even though the government gave 37 states grants to modernize their health information infrastructure to help set up the health insurance exchanges, about half the states are refusing to set up a health insurance exchange to be in compliance with the Affordable Care Act.

    The best part? If the state doesn't set up their own health insurance exchange, the government will do it for them.

    The government has to put on the shoes of the toddler states and drag them to the car so we can get where we need to go. The conservative temper tantrums make me so ****************ing happy. As much as they cry and stomp their feet, we're bigger, we're stronger, and we're getting in that ****************ing car, whether they like it or not.


    TWO TERMS BITCHES! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

      i have a prediction that w/in 6-10 years, the health care law will be repealed and non of this will matter.

      i am usually right about these things.

      I am a bit confused. There is no single payer on the horizon, so that isn't even a discussion. The only thing happening is a gradual move towards implementing the ACA. Some states are, understandably, against this.

      Also, this "they can go back to the way things were" bit is confusing since that is exactly what they would rather do.

        That's the amazing thing in the debate. The current system is the worst in the industrialized world. All the numers say that. How could you want to continue? IMO, the OB plan takes too long to make things change.

        Arkansas, with a Democratic Governor, a Republican Legislature, and a requirement for a 75% majority, has already found the bi-partisan solution, a privatizing plan that does everything both sides want, and has been approved by HHS. Both Gov. Beebe and the GOP in Arkansas love this plan.

        Tennessee is looking into the same plan, and other Southern states as well like Florida.  Except Texas (so far)

        About the only ones who won't love it are "never compromise" teabaggers.

        Is Romney a Marxist for passing an identical (****************) plan?

        This is simply the GOP screwing their constituents to take an easy path to reelection

        Do you actually KNOW what Arkansas is doing instead of Medicaid expansion?

      Help me understand...we need to attack Syria because Syria attacked Syria?
