We know that the world is getting tougher to get by in but when statistics, I think in terms of people, report one in five children in the U.S. lives in poverty and the GOP is holding an end-of-the-world “fiscal cliff” party. It boggles the mind that healthcare, children, the elderly and disabled seem to have no place in their perception of the world.
In the healthcare arena President Obama has drawn the line for Medicaid expansion. “States must expand Medicaid all the way if they want to receive full Obamacare funding, federal officials said Monday.”
“The health care reform law enacted in 2010 calls for Medicaid to be offered to anyone who earns up to 133 percent of the federal poverty level, which is $14,856 this year. Under the law, the federal government would pay the full cost of enrolling newly eligible people from 2014 to 2016, after which the share would gradually shrink until it reached 90 percent starting in 2022.” Maybe the GOP will now see that their tactics aren’t as good as they once were and people are tired of Corporate greed, living to serve those who were meant to serve us and rule the people as monarchs rather than the collective good for all. We are a democracy and it’s time we act more like it.
Also, please go and read about the ACHE ACT. Call your Representatives and ask them to support and sign on to this life saving bill! Together we can make a difference for many generations to come!
