If everybody had health insurance, and everybody paid their bill the cost of medical care would come down significantly in this country.
    Of course hospitals receive a significant portion of their income from both Medicare and Medicaid patients. Free emergency room care drives up the hospitals' costs, which in part they offset by charging more to Medicare and Medicaid, which is in turn costs the government more, which in turn costs ME more.

    Interesting that a thread on Perry has become a thread on Romneycare. Nice diversion as usual

Nearly three-quarters of non-elderly Texans who receive Medicaid are children; why? Are the little children responsible for pulling themselves up by the bootstraps before they even become adults?

    That doesn't look good for Texas...

    So you don't care that he is a hypocrite, and your just going to put your faith in him anyway... the guy flip flops on everything. But I guess you and Mitt have things in common.

    Keep digging that hole deeper and deeper. Medicare is funded by payroll taxes, Medicaid is funded 50% by state taxes and only affects low income people which once again shows that healthcare is a state expense, not a Federal Expense. Amazing how people like you have so much confidence in the Federal govt. solving a social problem when it is that govt that now has a 14.6 trillion dollar debt, NONE or very little of it created by healthcare expenses. So let's increase the federal taxpayer exposure

    I call that irrelevant on a Rick Perry thread. Rick Perry was also a Democrat in 1988, Reagan was a Democrat as was I. People change and it matters only what he will do right now.

    Which programs? You really go there and say minorities are all on welfare? More white people are on welfare, and if you're so pissed off about welfare programs then do something about it. When is the last time a president overhauled welfare... oh, Bill Clinton.
