Why the hell not????? People opposed to fully funding Medicaid simply have no clue what it is like to be poor or what it is like not to have healthcare coverage. We pay double what every other developed country for healthcare -- and suffer worse outcomes -- BECAUSE it is managed by the for-profit, corporate, "free enterprise" system. Governments can do a much better job, for much cheaper, because they actually institute systems FOR PEOPLE, not for profit. It costs us so much now because of all the insurance companies, benefit managers, and other useless intermediaries that skim all the money off the system and keep people from getting care they need without any medical training and without having a clue why they need them.
