We all know those liberal/progressives love welfare. Obama, and most L/Ps in general, love entitlement programs. They also love spreading the wealth. Your wealth.
The Heritage Foundation published an interesting article about how ObamaCare will put 1/5 of America on Welfare. How else would force citizens to depend upon the government? Take away their money, then turn around and offer them everything for “free.”
Medicaid is a means-tested welfare program created in 1965 to provide health care for low income families. Despite the fact that it is one of the most poorly performing of all the federal welfare programs it has become the cornerstone of how health insurance is expanded under Obamacare. The Health care “reform” bills advancing in the House and Senate would expand Medicaid by making this government-run health plan available to all adults with incomes at or below 150% of the poverty line.
The change would dramatically multiply eligible recipients, with 46 states seeing increases of at least 20%, including 16 posting jumps of 50% or more. Almost 21% of the entire U.S. population would be eligible for Medicaid and seven states and the District of Columbia would have eligibility rates of at least 25%.
