Part 4 — Medicaid

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,June 25th,2012

  this part is very esoteric to most folks , but it is quite simple. the ObamaCrapCare Act is seeking to dragoon our states and blackmail them into adding millions of people to the Medicaid rolls, with little (3 years) aid from a Federal Government that cannot afford it.

  Also, in particular many states either have just or are about to get their financial books back in balance, and adding so many people (as the Mother of All Unfunded Mandates) is going to put them effectively into bankruptcy, or pretty close to it.

  If the whole bill (part 3) comes about, then the states will not have to worry, but even if it does, i believe that the Supreme Court will decide on this part of the case, nonetheless. They would not have set things up this way, if they were not planning to make a decision.

  I am not entirely sure, but I think that they will decide (5-4, or 6-3) to strike this part down. Having states meet financial requirements for aid from the feds is one thing, but dragooning them into effective bankruptcy by threating their ENTIRE Medicaid funding is something else .
