The stats are coming in now.  We now know who the real winners – and losers – will be.  No surprises there.  But in case you didn’t know, here it is:

Utah=The Biggest Loser

New York=The Biggest Winner

Medicaid Expansion NY

So what you’ve just seen is that the more fiscally responsible states, such as Utah, are “rewarded” by being forced to fund the reckless spending of the other states.

Opting Out of Medicaid Expansion
But the Supreme Court gave the states a safety net in its landmark decision in June 2012: you can opt out of Medicaid expansion. Utah began the process last week in its state legislature. On Monday, HB 391 S2 passed out of the State House with strong support – 46-27-2.

Now the bill’s on its way to the Utah Senate. And we need your help.  If you are in Utah, please contact your Senator asap.

Why is Prohibiting Medicaid Expansion so important?
A recent article in The New England Journal of Medicine explains that Medicaid:

“now plays a vital role in the U.S. health care system and a foundational role in health care reform…. If it [Medicaid] is not expanded per the ACA, the nation will lose its chance at near-universal health insurance coverage.” (Dec. 20, 2012, Sara Rosenbaum, JD

Did you get that? Any state that accepts the Medicaid expansion offered by the federal government is committing to ObamaCare.

So if you are in a state that has not yet decided whether to adopt the expansion, please contact your legislators right away, and ask them to stop it. They can contact us for more information. Here is a map of the states that have already committed and of those who are undecided:

If you’re in a state that has already taken the expansion, start asking the tough questions. Or move to Utah and one of the other states that will still be standing after the others collapse in bankruptcy. Real estate’s still rather affordable in Utah, unlike the “Affordable” Care Act.

    Why not do the math before starting the programs?

    • I wish I could see the rest of the map and know what the colors mean.  I am definitely against Obamacare taking over our state.  Do whatever we need to reject it.

        Sorry about that Shannon! We were on overload at the legislative session. I’ll correct it asap!
