According to Peterson, you’re either for the expansion of Medicaid, which would entail having better than half the population of this state receiving health insurance from the government well within the next decade. This will be at the likely cost TO THE STATE of hundreds of millions of dollars, even while putting Louisiana more in thrall to the whims of the federal government. And this is when several members of Congress, including the chairman of the House Budget Committee, have made very clear that federal matching funds for Medicaid cannot and will not continue at their current levels of generosity – you’re either in favor of that sucker play, or you hate black people.
Now, we know that the Louisiana Democrat Party has nothing left to offer but vicious, spiteful, ridiculous race-baiting to the people of the state.[fbcomments]
