My wife and I decided to accept government money to help us get 36-40 hrs/week nursing care for our severely handicapped son who has both Down's Syndrome and cerebral palsy. We had to apply for Medicaid for this, in order to qualify for help. We now have sanity in our lives again. Otherwise, we would get only 36 hrs/month, because I am considered to make too much money, (ha, ha, yeah, right). Our son is now 20 years old. I don't know what we would do without it. Well-meaning home teachers and visiting teachers would never have the time to even come close to meeting our needs, as much as they would sincerely try.
Needless to say, through tax payer money, via Medicaid, we have been "blessed". Take advantage of it Utah. We sure did. Reap the blessings now. We feel it comes from God.

@ morpunkt I am certainly sympathetic to your situation. Please enlighten us as what is to much money? If in fact you can not afford the care you need very few of us begrudge helping you. What I begrudge is the Government telling me I have to help you.

The republican legislature's refusal to expand medicaid will cause death among the poor and suffering among the poor and disabled. I do not see how this cruel decision is compatible with any moral belief system.

Give the Govenor time to review the work being compiled. It seems the prudent, right thing to do.

It is good to see the Governor be a voice of reason on this issue. Taxpayers have paid for a study of the full costs and benefits of allowing the feds to pay for healthcare for low income Utahns next year. Lets see what the study says before we make up our minds.

@ mcclark An did that come to you through revelation or are you the omnipitant wizard?
