Kasich has shown himself to be a liar. I will do whatever it is that’s needed to throw him out of office.
So if the cause is worthy- in the eye’s of the beholder of course - then abandon conservationism.
You would be at odds with me if you lived in Michigan too.
Maybe you can convince Kasich to raise gas taxes too.
kasich is scared, plain and simple. obama has carried his state twice, he is up for reelection next year, and he only won with 49% of the vote last time.
I don’t think she is a conservative. She is trying to make political points to save her a$$.
Give the states money now, take lots more away later.
Wow, you’ve found a way to blog pimp and pretend it’s from a news source that HAS to be excerpted. Kinda like the examiner blog, but dressed up as “Yahoo News.” Nicely played.

I’m at Odds with My Fellow Conservatives; I Support Kasich’s Move to Expand Medicaid

Only in your mind are you a Conservative.
Kasich is going to lose for sure the next time he runs. The libs wouldn’t vote for him ever, and the conservatives won’t vote for him now, either.
Way to go Romney, I mean Kasich.
Don’t call yourself “conservative” if you want to expand government.
Hey, here’s a novel idea.. how about CONSERVATIVE legislators at the federal and state levels pass a law where health insurance can be sold across state lines, the rates will drop because of competition and people will then be able to afford INSURANCE (which means it covers against extra-ordinary or catastrophic loss. (as opposed to “insurance” that pays for every little flu shot... does your car insurance pay for oil changes??!!)
The Republicans should have done this in Bush’s first term. Health INSURANCE would be affordable by now.
“I’m a life-long Republican, but.....”
I have good news for you!

The medicaid expansion is going to be a tremendous disincentive to people to find a job or a better paying job because of the high cost of insurance on the Obamacare exchanges. It would be a poor trade off, make a few dollars more, but lose the medi-caid coverage, costing you $4,000 per family member.
Single payer is inevitable.
A lot of people are already on state Medicaid. Which will be scaled up for the middle class.
I believe conservatives who oppose the move to expand Medicaid are blind to the ramifications of living without health insurance.
Due to health issues, I am on Social Security Disability, Medicaid being my secondary insurance. The insurance has been a tremendous blessing in my life and I don't know how I would live without it.
Forget the fact that SS is in the red or that we have 70 million on Medicaid. This woman is the perfect example of how one's values can be co-opted by dependence on the government. It matters not that she is getting far more out of the system than she ever contributed or that we can't afford to pay these benefits. The country is bankrupt. She wants to expand the program that costs her nothing. She is a taker.
anyone who says we need more entitlements is insane
Remember, more people receiving welfare from the government, more people who will vote Democrat.
