TFA: If Obama supporters don't like the term "vouchers" or want to gripe about its accuracy, look first to the beam in thine own eye.

If you use the word voucher in a way I don't like, then I can use it any way I want! Your mom's a big fat voucher!

I'm just going to wait for the Republican plan to show up on Netflix, since I can't be bothered to watch every week for whether or not states should be able to make decisions for themselves.

xiaodown: Going out on a limb to say either this is false or taken out of context.

(reads article)

Yep. These are the states that are governed by the rule that says that they can only do this if the quality of care is equal to or better than the care that they get on traditional medicaid. The federal government established a minimum level, some states think they can save money by doing it themselves, the federal government agrees and gives them a block grant, but only if they agree to not decrease the level of care. Beyond setting the rules the feds have no involvement whatsoever in the state programs.

So, false *and* taken out of context. Horay, hot air!

That kind of sounds almost exactly like the "removed welfare work requirements" issue. Do they just use some sort of standard lie framework and try and fit it wherever they can?
