This is So Scary

Powerline outlines the expansion of Medicaid (Medicare is for the old, Medicaid is for the poor) under the pork-u-lus bill:

No income checks for unemployed people- and their families- wanting to sign up for Medicaid? Where are the liberals demanding that this money is reserved for the poor?

New federal COBRA subsidies (65%!)? I know a lot of people who made $100,000+ before they lost their jobs who will be signing right up.

We are truly creating a complete dependency-society here.

We already have an upside down health care system with rising costs due to over-involvement of government in the industry- and they want more.

How are we EVER going to afford this?
