This bill makes NO SENSE! They are turning down $500 Million in taxes that have
already been paid, and then thinking that they can offer meaningful health care
for this population by using $35 Million from our already-stretched state
budget. This bill costs Utah more and provides inferior care. What are they
best alternative to medicaid expansion? NO medicaid expansion!
What's that old saying about cutting off one's nose to spite your
Q: For those poor Utahn souls who voted for Becky Lockhart and are now about
find themselves with sub-optimal health care because of it, what have you
learned?A: You have learned that elections have consequences.
If Utah takes the $500 million, it will have to comply with many onerous and
expensive federal regulations. Just like in education, you take even ten
percent from the federal government and it will mandate 80 percent of how you
operate your program. Obamacare and the entire current medical system is on the
road to collapse. It will be better to be as far away from and as independent
of that corrupt system when it does collapse.
Is anyone really surprised the the Conservative ultra right Republicans choose
to punish those who have no other alternative for healthcare in order to keep to
the 2008 plan of "NO".So very sad to see this type of thing happen
over and over again.
