    Your facts were corrected, by I speak of the working poor. They often don't qualify for Medicaid. So that ER bill gets passed on, if they on. Many put things off. We see them when it's most expensive to treat them.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I don't believe that is true, people who don't have insurance and go to the ER's are paid for by the taxpayers of the state through state taxes not through the Federal govt.

    Yes, and yet those expenses are paid for by the people of the state not the Federal Taxpayers.

    It's a Federal law that everyone must be treated, not a State law...

    The only Federal money that goes to the hospitals are money paid to Medicaid or Medicare patients.The state taxpayers fund the rest of the hospital expenses.

    Factually incorrect. If you were correct, hospitals would not be required to treat everyone who showed up in the ER...

    Federal law requires treatment but tax dollars pay for the expense of the uninsured however many hospitals write off many of those expenses which end up costing the state taxpayers more money.

    In most instances, the insured end up paying for the uninsured. IOW, you, I, and the federal government through increased charges for services...
