Brian Howey's column on insuring the working poor once again is misleading the folks with Democrat talking points. He states the federal government will pick up 95 percent of the Medicaid expansion until 2020 and 90 percent after that, but what he forgets to mention is where the federal government gets the money from.
He also states 30,000 jobs will be created from the flow of these funds. But he forgets again to mention who will keep these dollars flowing.
Howey forgets the funds come from the taxpayers, Hoosier taxpayers, and if the federal government keeps taking from, as he calls them, "the rich or middle to upper levels of the middle class," it won't be long before we are all the working poor. The liberal, Obama dream world.
