Ok, let’s get this right. Last week on Faux News, The Gov said. “We don’t trust this administration, and we don’t trust Washington, D.C. to be able to deliver health care in our state”. One in four of us Texans are uninsured, the highest rate of any state in the Union. Texas ranks 50th in per capita spending on it’s own citizens. But Texas Tea Bagger politics and The Gov. will not implement the Affordable Care Act even though it benefits Texas.
The Tea Baggers hate giving anything to the lazy, mostly black, druggies and them damn illegal aliens who would rather stay stoned all day chatting on the free IPhone’s Obama gave them while watching their Big Screen TV’s than actually work. This misdirected hatred is so blinding, they can’t grasp the thought that the Medicaid expansion would greatly help almost half the population of Texas.
The Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, ObamaCare, would cover 49.4 percent of uninsured Texans by 2019. The program is broadened to cover Americans within 133 percent of the poverty line. In Texas the current the eligibility for a working Texan parent cuts off at 27 percent of the poverty line. Under the ACA, the federal government will cover the full cost of the first three years and pay 90 percent thereafter. But the hatred of Obama is so strong these Tea Baggers will go to any lengths to oppose anything his administration does to try and help the working poor and middle class, even as most of these clowns that support The Gov. fall in these classes. Classic case of cuttin’ off your nose to spite your face.
The Gov. continued on Faux News, stating “We’ve got some of the finest health care in the world, so the idea that this federal government, which doesn’t like Texas to begin with, to pick and choose and come up with some data and say somehow Texas has the worst health care system in the world is just fake and false on its face.”
Do these dupes even realize that in their zeal to oppose anything Obama proposes, they actually have given Obama control to come and implement everything they hate?
