The dilemma of Obamacare billions
The irony was heavy at the Capital Club’s penthouse suite as journalists and legislators ate, drank, relaxed and discussed the great issues of the day.
The big issue was Medicaid, possibly a billion dollars extra a year in money coming into the state as part of Obamacare. Huge money for a poor state that has always taken in two to three times the amount it pays in federal taxes. Big time federal largesse.
The irony? The legislative bigwigs are conservative Republicans who detest the rapid expansion of our welfare state. They also detest the loss of state power to federal bureaucrats.
