Why is this? Was Medicaid intended, when instituted, to cover those in need during an unexpected worst case scenario, or to expand to nearly half of our population?
Towards the article, a quoted source spoke of “women being able to get coverage before becoming pregnant”. Um, when did we learn that it was O K to have children whose basics are paid for by others? Or, in the case of some, to not marry a partner & father of a child to get spousal coverage on his health insurance, making this woman dependent on the taxpayers?
Was Medicaid really intended to be as widely used as it now is?
