Mrbogey: Ctrl-Alt-Del: Seriously? I mean... seriously? I've been following this story in the news and here on Fark since the first day, and I have not seen even one single person say "There are no problems with the rollout." Not one.I'm sorry to hear about your blindness. Luckily the text-to-speech software is pretty damn good though.

You're the one who made the stupid claim, but I notice that when I call you out on it you toss out insults instead of citations.

DeltaXi65: captainktainer: Fourth, you don't have to excuse the administration to identify where Republicans have failed to be patriots. Republican governors refused to expand Medicaid specifically to harm Democrats and the poor.That's ridiculous, on it's face. The reason why many Republican governors have refused to expand Medicaid has nothing to do with harming the poor. They recognize that the expansion locks them in to the Federally mandated guidelines for eligibility, and while the federal government will pay for all of the difference in cost between the existing eligibility criteria and the expanded criteria, that amount drops down to 90% in the out years, and there is nothing to stop Congress from changing that allocation down the road, either. At that point, states will be locked in and will have to make up the difference through their own general funds.Since many states have balanced budget requirements, that means either those states raise taxes - and they'll have to raise them on everybody, not just the rich - or they'll have to cut the largest programs in most state budgets, which are education, welfare benefits and public safety. This isn't a cut and dried "they didn't do this because they're evil" kind of argument. There are very valid arguments as to why it's a bad idea to accept the medicaid expansion, and many of those arguments include protecting the poor, not hurting them. The working poor are most hard hit by state tax increases, public services cuts, and the like.
