    Governor, how about we take all the money and spend it all on the working poor. I think the insurance companies have all the money they need. What? If the poor want you to do something for them, they have to do something for you? Like give you money. Oh,now I get it.

    Why, oh why, is Utah making it so hard? Just expand Medicaid right now and get our citizens covered. Enough of these games.

    Is the Governor using the back door to avoid the radical the Tea Party?

    420.00 per year is almost 3% of their annual salary and in some cases even higher. With the reduction of Food Stamps and the rejection of a Medicaid expansion that would have helped all of these people....where are these families going to find money for food? But that's OK they are just the poor who "deserve" to be where they are according to so many Republicans. Sad that there will be many left out and uninsured. It is horrible request to a poor family to come up with $420.00. It is shameful that Republicans seem to ignore the working poor and then push for tax cuts on their rich buddies? But those rich buddies are the ones that funnel them it must be right. BTW conservatives.....45% of Food Stamps are used for children and 9% are for the elderly. I guess they don't deserve to eat right?
