house Bill H.R. 584

Do States Need More Federal Funds to Expand Medicaid?

Argument in favor

States that haven’t expanded Medicaid for people who are newly eligible under the Affordable Care Act should receive extra federal funds if they do so.

What we really need is Medicare-for-all so that all Americans have coverage!

States need to expand their Medicaid coverage to all individuals in their states or healthcare for all. Sense we are the 35 healthiest country in the world, didn’t make the top 25, thing need to change!

Argument opposed

The federal government shouldn’t be bribing states with taxpayer dollars to expand Medicaid. If they want to, they will make their own decision to expand it.

No, what we need is more freedom and less government intervention in our lives, relieve us of our heavy tax burdens and let us decide how to spend our own money, freedom is what has made America great not socialism, make America great again.

    👎🏻House Bill H.R. 584 AKA the “Incentivizing Medicaid Expansion Act”👎🏻 I’m in full opposition to House Bill H.R. 584 AKA the “Incentivizing Medicaid Expansion Act” — would amend Medicaid to give states that expand their Medicaid coverage for individuals who are newly eligible under the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) the enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP) when the expansion occurs. In essence, it would mean that those states would get more matching funds for their Medicaid program by expanding their coverage. The federal government shouldn’t be bribing states with taxpayer dollars to expand Medicaid. If they want to, they will make their own decision to expand it. SneakyPete..... 👎🏻👿👿👿👎🏻. 3*20*19.....

    Healthcare is a right not a privilege. Therefore states that will finally enter the 21st century are needed. and decide to expand Medicaid should be able to get federal funds i they are needed. Actually, what we really need is Medicare for all, universal healthcare, single payer, whatever you want to call it. It's what this country so desperately needs. The fact that our fellow citizens are dying from lack of healthcare is appalling.

    The federal government should not be getting involved in a states affairs. It should be up to the state how to allocate their funds that they receive through their citizens taxes.

    NO HECK NO!! Just look at the care for veterans and the rigamarole seniors and the disabled have to contend with regarding getting healthcare covered. Socialism is nothing more than having our lives controlled by government and being crippled and dependent on them. We are better off forging on our own and paying our own way. Mind you healthcare providers and other businesses should not take advantage of the public.

    Sure, more Americans would gain access to Medicaid. Do they deserve it? Can we afford it? I'm speaking as an uninsured elderly American. P. S. Rural hospitals close because towns fail, for one main reason, and it's not lack of Medicaid. Towns fail because young people leave due to lack of jobs, because of high corporate taxes, a problem President Trump is tackling. Solve that problem, Leftists.

    Try expanding the free market rather than funneling taxpayer dollars through the governments of the fed and then the states before it gets to people who need it.

    Absolutely. We need Medicare for all! My fiance is sick with a rare disease and Medicaid does not cover the treatment she needs so we have to pay nearly 500 dollars a month for a crappy bronze plan that does cover her treatment.

    Every citizen already has the God given and US of A right to pursue happiness. It cannot be legislated to make it so...proof is to look at history. The more that is given, the more that is taken. Earn it, don’t expect it. You think you are miserable now, wait 5 years under Socialism and you will no longer look at your pets the same again.
