MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

On our editorial suggesting that the governor raise taxes to fund Medicaid, we received these comments:

"If the budget is passed at this severely cut rate, the shortage of physicians, hospitals, and clinics will dwindle down to 3rd world country status.  We all lose."

Yet another viewer wrote:

"Why keep pouring money into something that has no bottom?   You have more people on Medicaid than the state can afford. "

In response to our editorial stating that the legislature is mandated by law to reduce funding for education because of the Rolling Reserve Act, one viewer wrote:

"… the same Legislators to whom you are giving a pass are the ones who passed the Rolling Reserve Act.   Therefore, they are still at fault and should be called out in anger by name."

And we received a number of comments on our editorial suggesting that convicted drug felons not be allowed to get food stamps.

"If we provide them with a way to get food where do you think that money will go? Back to the drugs."

Yet, another viewer wrote:

"I think that a drug felon who has done their time and are paid in full, should have a chance at a new life and if they need food stamps, they should get them."

And a final comment:

"Non-violent drug offenders have no business in jail to begin with.    So here we are once again trying to treat a symptom instead of the disease: unconstitutional drug laws."

As always, we welcome your comments.
