Many who are "truly poor" don't qualify for Medicaid.There is such a thing as applying for medicaid if they are truly poor.
I don't really care what you think about the ACA - I know you're opposed. But what you should do is base your opinions on the facts and if you want to keep insisting on that despite me showing you that you're wrong, can you come up with something to support your view?
If not it looks to me like facts just aren't necessary for you - you'll believe what you want, and facts just get in the way of a good ideology.
I agree with your point there, but the actual observation is many disabled can be successful, many more cannot. Many of the poor are poor because they made bad decisions, others didn't. And they ALL need healthcare, so what's the point of blaming them in this thread?I have other examples that do not include disabled workers of great intellect, however I suspect that you get the point. That point is that not every disabled person is helpless and many are quite successful if they do not let their handicaps define their lives.
There are actually quite a few "ifs" ands and buts to that last point. I've shown you who qualifies in Tennessee and "poor" isn't actually a category on its own. Poor AND pregnant? Yes. Poor AND disabled, yes. Poor AND taking care of minor childrent, yes. Poor? No.And obamacare is making it incredibly worse. However my point still stands. Those who are truly poor do qualify for medicaid.....before and since obamacare.
There are no "ifs", "ands", or "buts" to that point.
If you think I'm wrong, Google is your friend. But it's tiring arguing against "my gut tells me your FACTS are wrong."
