Skip to comments.Obama: ‘Political Spite’ Motivating States to Refuse Medicaid Expansion
Posted on 04/19/2014 12:32:19 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Republicans still cant bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working, President Obama told a news conference on Thursday. He also took aim at states that have not expanded their Medicaid programs:
This does frustrate mestates that have chosen not to expand Medicaid for no other reason than political spite. You got 5 million people who could be having health insurance right now at no cost to these stateszero cost to these statesother than ideological reasons they have chosen not to provide health insurance for their citizens.But some governors, pointing to President Obamas own broken promises, simply don't believe the government funding will be there.

States know they cannot afford it
Right up until Red China decides to stop lending it to us.
Jug ears owns the Spite House.
What a whiny b&@$h
No, you lying creep. States don’t want to be bankrupted by this disastrous failure of a health care plan. The subsidies for your broke government will go away in three years,, and states will be left holding the bag. Get along without us, and see which states will fare better five years from now.
it changes constantly by unconstitutional fiat with delays and waivers. We'll see how well it works once it's fully implemented.
Obama has singlehandedly lowered the political discourse of this country to that of a silly little 10 year old steeped in play-yard taunts.
Between Harry Reid and our president, we now have childishness ruling the country.
No wonder the rest of the world ignores us.
Nothing is as expensive as “ free” stuff....
Will the real Satan please stand up!!!
Hilarious new movie from Obama Jivethon Lying Circus given five thumbs up for sheer nuttiness; but loses comedy with state governor roles. What gives?
PRECISELY!! My brother who lost his job of 32 years in one of obamas summers of recovery, and has only been able to find a job as janitor at 9 bucks an hour,20 hours a week, went to an obamabot insurance salesman to sign up, cause he did not want to be a lwabreaker. The obamabot took his info and announced that he could hook him up at 347 bucks a month! HOWEVER, all he had to do was get a different job making 2 grand more per year, and he could get a 336 dollar a month subsidy.........That is, as you stated, for 3 years until the feds quit paying it, then he is stuck with it.
Get that? IF he can make MORE MONEY, he can get a BIGGER subsidy!!??? FOR A WHILE, that is.
IOW, not wanting to EXPAND spending on the whim of a Kenyan-born dictator wannabee is “spite”. Impeach now!
