MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Our editorial focusing on Medicaid and the current position our Governor is taking  prompted the following responses on wsfa.com and our WSFA 12 News Facebook page: 

Debra writes, "Since Alabama citizens, will be paying the price on the federal level, for health care, why not make it where the people of Alabama, that need medical assistance, receive it. I guess, we can pay the price and the other states receive the benefits, just as other states around us receive benefits for schools, etc., because Alabama's elected officials think they can control the moral beliefs of others, by not having a lottery in the state."

Another responded, "The fact that such an obvious plea has to be made says a lot about Alabama politics. The people in this state have been so brainwashed by the outright lies of the Republicans that they are willing to work against their own best interests. They are unlikely to change anytime soon. The great majority of the rest of our nation will advance and leave these people where they have always been - at or near the bottom in just about everything except football and barbecue.

And finally Doug adds, "10 Billion dollars influx of Medicaid dollars into the state sounds really great, except that means that 10 billion dollars are going to be forcibly taken from people throughout the country on behalf of those new Medicaid recipients. There are no free lunches. Thomas Sewell said it best: "It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer "universal health care." I'm glad our Governor is taking a stand on this issue. He's right on this one.

As always, we encourage and appreciate your feedback.
