Medicaid also receives Federal funding, but it is administered differently in each state as the State's funding is involved as well. That is why it differs. That is also why some Texans are wanted to seceed from the Union - they are not wanting to pay for Obamacare since the states did not approve the program but are being required to pay for it. I am not in favor of secession, but I don't like other people telling us what to do either. Just saying
Oh, it'd be SO fun to watch if Texas did succeed. /gets popcorn. BYE BYE!!
It's open for debate if this is just the rightwing fringe, or actually mainstream, well thought out
or just pouting cuz rightwingers got spanked so hard in 2012,
sure is fun to consider their idea.
I loved it when Perry called the idea to walk away from the USA = "patriotic"
at a teabagger rally. Gotta love the teaparty,
an anti-tax group which started up because taxes are at the lowest rates they've ever been since the 1950s....one can only wonder if they are protesting LOWEST taxes ever?
but, who knows.
Gotta love the tea party signs "keep your govt hands off of my medicare!"
and seeing people on medicare worrying about "socialism" as if they are somehow unaware that medicare IS socialism. adorable.
but, it'd break my heart if Texas "patriots"(?) secede------- if/when any hurricanes hit the coast of Texas without any federal help, but, we'll be rooting for you all to rebuild and survive, etc.
Without the feds paying for medicare in Texas anymore, guess those will be over. OH, and social security, gone.
I don't want to be the one to tell your gramma she's out there on her own now...
I normally never reply to posts about Obamacare, cuz,
it is a lost cause to change anyone's mind--------- facts don't matter in such discussions,
but, i had a minute til i run out the door,
and wanted to be one voice that even tried to
inform you that the states get 3 full years fully paid for by the feds, and then, 90% paid for, for every year after that.
So many misconceptions in your post, hard to know where to start, but, Texas isn't being forced to accept this govt help, it's optional.
to the OP, sorry for the derail,
but lots of times no one bothers replying this kind of post, (cuz it leads to outrage, and no one ever
changes their minds, cuz facts don't matter in such discussions..and i know i should not reply to this "texas is being forced" etc, when texas is NOT, at all,
but, no one else did.)
anyway, gotta go. PEACE OUT.
