A Gem in the ARC Act–And Open Thread for Saturday March 20, 2021
From the editorial Page of today’s NY Daily News in an article titled, The Path from Poverty?
“In South Dakota, no Liberal place, there’s a new groundswell of support for expanding people’s ability to qualify for Medicaid. Before now, South Dakota was among roughly a dozen states that had resisted Medicaid Expansion for years, which became available after Obamacare was implemented.
What gives?” asks the DN. There’s more but the conclusion is, “The message rings clear…helping people stay healthy and out of poverty helps every one of us.”
Missouri was the latest state to expand Medicaid in the 2020 election that also brought us Cori Bush.
We are not going to get the prize—M4A—this year. But we very well may see the Medicare age lowered to 60 and Medicaid in (almost) every state.
The third pillar of my personal goal is for Medicaid income limits be raised to include even more people.
And yes, I am aware that this is selling out in the view of many of our participants.
Sally Gold is a well known NYC political reporter.
Not to mention that Campaigns are about the future.
T and R, NYCVG!! 🙂 Also, thank you, jcb and Ms. Benny for yesterday’s OT and the link to the terrific Ryan Grim interview on M4A! 🙂
I agree that M4A is the ultimate goal, but anything that increases the number of people covered by Medicare or Medicaid should be welcome. I actually think covering more people will help the push to get it for everyone because more people will see the benefits and want them for themselves.

In addition to her own allegations, she corroborates the groping incident.
And on the NY Republican side. I don’t think this will be helpful to any possible run for governor.
Might be time to elect a female governor
And from the past
The mention of the Chinese population triggered something from BTF III Mad Dog Tannen-
“He was quick on the trigger and bragged he had killed 12 men not including Indians or Chinamen.” Wonder why that was put into the script? Was the writer making an historical point about the old west.
I think Cuomo is rushing to reopen because he knows that’s popular and right now he’s taking a hit because of the scandals.
Another words if you dont vote R your vote is considered fraudulent, seems thats the goal of the Rs
T&R, NYCVG! not selling out, but a path to give people health. And a great by product of them also seeing how great M4A will be.
let’s hope they also stop the incursion of health insurance corpses into our Medicare and they don’t allow them into Medicaid, either. there are just so many fronts to fight on now that i’m afraid this will continue through the back door while we are putting out fires.
with both the good and the not so good in your comment.
what and where is this? unusual, to say the least.
the poster didn’t know where. i’m thinking they have big bolts in what looks like the RR cars holding everyone together. hope so!
looks like a lot of fun–trailer parks are so often such dreary, beaten down places.
I miss Michael. gone too soon.
you know it.
in Britain. wonder what it is here.
