Via Progress Missouri, Jon Stewart (bless his heart and working mind) takes on those politicians resisting Medicaid expansion in their states.
they say "We can't afford Medicaid," do they ever consider that it's really (that) the United States Of America can't afford them?
Hey, I've got a singular idea that's never been broached before* - if these lawmakers think Medicaid is such a bad program,
why don't they just open up an improved Medicare by passing H.R. 676?
After all, numerous studies along with the Congressional Budget Office show that would be the most cost-effective way to provide quality health care to the whole country. And that's what we all want, right? Nah ...
*It's just supported by 65% of the American public, most of the medical profession, hundreds of labor and business groups, and all of the major women's rights organizations. So pass single payer now and give health care for all a chance.
