Please just get it done soon. Forget that it was supported by Obama. People think they have to oppose it on that fact alone. We all know Obama stole this plan from Romney! There are some sensible Republicans and there are more of us in the middle than you think. Do right by Utah and help the poorest among us with healthcare! You will help people in need and you will help the Utah economy!

Shame on you Becky Lockhart for opposing the expansion of this program. Needless harm is happening to so many good people in Utah just because they are poor. You have your entitlements and paid healthcare so it's OK to harm the poor among us. This is getting to be a horrible farce.

Nope, our legislators will (once again) cut off their noses to spite their face. And then wonder why the bill from the emergency room is so big.

What should happen won't. Medicaid should be expanded period. The financial studies show its the best solution for economic reasons. The poor get help and little is wasted on administrative costs. Herbert's way benefits insurance companies. Becky's way is deplorable given the golden insurance the legislators provide for themselves. Name another part-time job that provides the health insurance benefits enjoyed by our self-serving legislature.

Becky's way is insane, Herbert says we can make money of off the poor you know, why use all the money for health care? We can give some of it to our campaign contributors, whatever is left over can go for health care. The Democrats are the only ones saying lets use all the money for the working poor.
