    As state revenues recover, health costs remain a burden

    As state revenues recover, health costs remain a burden

    By Michael A. Fletcher, Published: June 11

    State revenues are finally returning to pre-recession levels, but the growing cost of providing health care for the poor is leaving most governments in dire fiscal straits, according to a report to be released Tuesday.

    The biggest culprit has been Medicaid. State spending on the joint federal-state health-care program for the poor surged by 20 percent this year, following a rise of 23 percent in fiscal 2011.

    - The Washington Post
    Obama Care shifts the cost of National Health Care to the states Medicaid rolls then doesn't fully fund them. The Federal Government shouldn't be allowed to mandate anything they don't fully fund. In California we will get clobbered with all the poor illegal aliens residing here. This will absolutely "kill" any growth we could have out of the depression we're in. Obama and Obama Care must GO in November.

    The problem is that the guy you want to replace Obama with is the one who came up with the outline Obama used to create that system. Trust me, RomneyCare is not more of a picnic than ObamaCare.

    I will never vote for Romney, he's just another Arnold Schwarzenegger. What I want is Republicans to gain 13 more seats in the Senate and 19 in the House. Then it won't matter who's in the White House.

    Only if you can find 32 Conservatives, not people like Scott Brown here in Massachusetts.

    That will be up to the voters. I myself just can't look myself in the mirror and shave without cutting my own throat if I vote for Arnold Schwarzenegger Jr. I'll be voting for the Constitution Party candidate.

    So will I, assuming Mr Goode is on the ballot here in MA. Then again I'll probably be leaving most of the rest of the ballot blank.
