    Um... not willingly and not on time they don't. The federal government pays what it wants, when it wants. Every doctor I know has stopped taking medicare patients because the government doesn't pay the bills like they're supposed to.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You're trying to pawn it off on the State government. How is that different?

    Because it is a state responsibility and that is where it belongs

    Interesting how millions of people are moving to TX, how TX is among the leaders in creating jobs, has a very low cost of living, high quality of life. Wonder what these people see that you don't?
    They sure are not moving there for a state run program administering the ACA.

    If you have a large number eligible but not enrolling in federally assisted Medicaid, is that supposed to be a point of pride? Do you get a kick out of the fact that Texas is number one when it comes to uninsured children?

    It is a centrist nation with a centrist president. Real conservatives and liberals are on the fringes, with conservatives having more influence because they have more financial backing from large corporations, esp the defense and petroleum industries.

Too bad that basic economics isn't being taught in today's schools.
    I thought conservatives thought that high corporate profits were more important than almost anything, including high employment?

    People are moving to TX because of the opportunities this state offers and the low cost of living. TX is a state that promotes personal responsibility something apparently you don't understand. If people are eligible for Medicaid and aren't signing up whose fault is that, the state govt? Personal responsibility apparently is something liberals don't understand

    To do what job? Making sure a nanny is assigned to each individual that moves to the state or lives here?
