MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A WSFA 12 editorial two weeks ago chided Governor Robert Bentley for continuing to refuse to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, forfeiting federal funds now totaling $750 million.

Most of the comments we received to that editorial were in disagreement.  For example:

"Medicaid is broke … we don't need to throw more of our money away until we find a solution to fix the problem."  Roy

"375 million now and 375 million more in April that taxpayers across the nation won't have to  wonder where it went."  Melanie

"…when the state starts having to pick up the tab for that expanded Medicaid program in a few years, where do you think the money will come from?"  Gerry

"An expansion for Medicaid is moving in the wrong direction. The goal is for everyone working to get off of things like that. Not adding more to."  Mandy

Some did agree with the editorial.  For instance:

"It's criminal for Governor Bentley not to expand Medicaid under Obamacare.  How many lives will be lost for his political grandstanding?"  Richard

As always, we welcome your comments.
