Florida’s Governor Rick Scott may have seen the light on Obama-care. That light was so bright, he’s blinded by it. Some in Texas can argue for the expansion of Obama-care, but it’s an argument against common sense. Regardless of how you spin it, nothing from nothing, leaves nothing.
"Quality health-care services must be accessible and affordable for all-- not just those in certain ZIP codes or tax brackets," Scott said at a news briefing, according to an NPR report. "While the federal government is committed to paying 100 percent of the cost of new people in Medicaid, I cannot, in good conscience, deny the uninsured access to care."
In ‘good conscience,’ Scott has opted to, perhaps, provide access to health-care, temporarily and that’s inhumane. When the bottom falls from under Obama-care, where does that leave the access?
The Obama Administration does have a proven track record of outright lying and that’s the focus point in this health-care expansion. When one consider his policies, their effects on the business community and the growing number of people on some form of entitlement program, Obama-care is nothing but another scam.
Texas is looking at a potential lost of $15 billion if it opts out. Given this administration’s track record, that $15 billion will quickly become a break even figure and shortly afterwards, it will become a lost. You have to remember, nothing from nothing, leaves nothing.
There has to be a foundation for anything and everything. Medicaid in it’s inception was intended to provide for a small portion of the country, based on economic circumstances, not half the country, based on anti economic or business policies. That’s where the common sense comes into play.
The Texas Tribune reports, ‘Both Perry and Dewhurst can claim to know how the business world works, whether their recent records support it or not. But look at the capper: They and others are talking seriously about walking away from a gargantuan federal freebie.’
‘Freebie?' Where’s the money coming from? Will the taxes, fines and cutbacks on pay outs cover the total cost for all 50 states? Perhaps the federal government will have to borrow to cover the costs and if so, what does that do to the deficit?
