Yep.
And then The States are counting on a Federal Bailout like an Article Of Faith.
You see in America, the bill never truly comes due.
Or as we will someday discover, to paraphrase Hemingway, it will come due slowly and then ALL AT ONCE.

Meh. Obamacare passed. Its gonna be on the books whether he takes money or not. I have no problem with someone being against a policy...and taking advantage of that same policy if it is put in place despite their opposition.


Agree

Like someone pointed out, it may be a good short term idea, but after the Feds quit subsidizing in 3 yrs, then what?


Really a math question. Is the net present value of the money for healthcare now greater than the future cost? And honestly it depends on your assumptions. Conservatives will say, "no way this gravy train lasts" and see the costs as more immediate, while liberals will say, "meh, what's a few more billion here and there?"
