seriously, someone please explain how this is a good thing…..
* The one shining success: Medicaid signups. While many states with GOP governors or legislatures opted not to accept expanded Medicaid coverage, the 25 states taking part have reported robust signup figures.
A recent Pew Charitable Trust Stateline survey of the 25 Medicaid expansion states and the District of Columbia indicated that at least 1.5 million people have already signed up for the joint federal-state health insurance program for low income Americans.
Stateline found that the primary reason for the signup surge is that hundreds of thousands of people prequalified for Medicaid coverage because they already are enrolled in other state health care programs for the poor.
So the goal is to have everyone on assistance? Yeah, that’s exactly what we need. Whatthefuckever.
