You and the local Democrats continually whine about the state not opting into the Affordable Care Act. You both use the scare tactic that 300,000 poor will not be covered. That billions will be missed because of additional government jobs being created. More jobs than Mercedes, bigger than Airbus.
Government has never created any value. Big government only takes from value creators and spends with no controls as we have today. The federal government does not have the money to support the program, so where do you and the Democrats think the federal money is coming from? More taxes or more debt to China.
And what happens at the end of three years if the money situation is worse and the Feds dump the entire responsibility on the states, as they have done once before? Too late to opt out then. More Democratic tragedy.
You need to support ways of moving back to spending no more than the government takes in. Support our political leaders returning to divine guidance in leading. Allowing capitalism to work and the churches to evangelize and do the work of God, among the poor. I believe that the idea of separation of religion and state was that the state did not rule religion.
