As Another Governor Decides to Expand Medicaid Under the Affordable Care Act, Governor Corbett Continues to Stall

More Than 500,000 Uninsured Pennsylvanians Continue to Suffer
On February 20, Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican and staunch critic of President Barack Obama’s health care law, announced that he will expand Florida’s Medicaid program. This was a complete about face for the governor who was a strong opponent of ObamaCare.
This announcement marks the 7th Republican governor to participate in the expansion of Medicaid. Half of all states have decided to or are leaning towards Medicaid expansion.
Status of State Medicaid Expansion for 2014
Unfortunately for the more than 500,000 uninsured Pennsylvanians hoping for some relief, Gov. Tom Corbett remains opposed to expanding at this time, citing the need to do further analysis on costs and rules associated with Medicaid expansion.

Expanding Medicaid - Families USA
Corbett continues to assert that Pennsylvania taxpayers will incur substantial costs related to expanding Medicaid, but what isn’t told is that these costs that he speaks of will occur regardless of Medicaid expansion based on the insurance mandate of the Affordable Care Act. These costs are NOT related to Medicaid expansion and should not be used as a reason for Pennsylvania not to participate.
The facts are:
  • For the first three years, Medicaid expansion is completely covered by the federal government at NO cost to Pennsylvania
  • More than 500,000 uninsured Pennsylvanians would get coverage
  • Pennsylvania would see savings and growth related to Medicaid expansion to the tune of an estimated $670 million
  • Pennsylvania would receive $4 billion a year in federal funds

Corbett should say ""YES"" and sign PA up. In 3 years when PA has to pick up the tab, he won't be in office and Corbett can blame the new Gov that PA has to pay.

I would like to see an actual person that is suffering because they don't have obama care! You cannot be turned away from getting care at a hospital because you can't pay! There is already many systems in place to help those that can't pay!

"For the first three years, Medicaid expansion is completely covered by the federal government at NO cost to Pennsylvania". This makes about as much sense as wiping your ass before you crap!!! I suppose the federal government wont be using tax dollars from pennsylvanians? It sure sounds all warm and fuzzy but how stupid do they think we are? I am so sick of this dictators "it wont cost one dime" argument. Must be things just magically appear now when he wants them. Too many years of laying on your backs sleeping letting the feds do whatever they want folks.

I am not poor enough to receive free health care, but I am not wealthy enough to afford insurance. I am almost 64. Hoping not to have a serious injury or ailment until I am old enough for medicare...well, really hoping never to have these troubles. Perhaps affordable insurance would help folks like me?

Amen 7:32. Gettin pretty tuff for the WORKING man/woman to support all these govn't programs that won't cost a dime. Let us please be mindful of the fact that govn't makes no money to give away, they only take money from private earnings and give away to whom they wish. After of course, they take a piece of the pie.
