Fact or fiction? State Medicaid programs are being cut even as Congress plans a big Medicaid expansion.

FACT!!! The House overhaul would require states to increase eligibility to 150 percent of the poverty level. Enrollment would grow by 15 million people, or more than a third, costing $460 billion over 10 years. The federal government would pay the full cost of care for the newly eligible in 2013 and 2014. The federal share would drop to 91 percent in 2015 and states would pay 9 percent of the costs for the new enrollees. But states can't even afford the current Medicaid program. Due to the drop…See More

Profile Information

Relationship Status:
Married
About Me:
I was born in Akron, Ohio, but transplanted here to Texas when I was just 2 years old. I've lived briefly in Altas, OK and Derby, KS as my dad was in the civil service, doing QA for the Titan I & II missile program. He was an avid bowler in his spare time and frequently took me and my brothers & sister with him. I miss him very much . . . he died of lung cancer when I was 23 and as I was just beginning my adventure as a nursing student (sigh).
I am an RN who went "all the way" in my education, from a vocational graduate, baccalaureate degree, masters degree, then doctor of philosophy. I have found that the number of degrees one has does NOT make one smarter, just more knowledgeable on particular subjects. Some of the smartest people I've known were not able to finish high school due to family hardships or injuries. So, what I'm saying is that my education has influenced my life greatly, but it isn't who I am.
I have held many titles as both an RN and Jill of all trades (I have to say this for those who think I am not truthful about who I am - lol). I've been in sales (Mary Kay & Amway - who hasn't, eh?), done singing telegrams (I'll put up the Dolly Parton pics of me later), pushed drinks at Texas Stadium, taught rhythmic aerobics & weight training at a local gym, taken in ironing, and worked with my mom in a baby clothes factory. As an RN, I've been manager of an AIDs unit, a neurological rehab nurse, a bedside nurse (all units, all shifts), a clinical auditor, a healthcare risk manager, and a university professor. Because of health reasons, I have worked as a legal nurse consultant & forensics nurse for the last 18 years. Due to tort reform here in Texas, I have been laid off from 4 law offices, but I don't let that stop me from finding work elsewhere!
I have been married for 35 yrs to the same guy. We still like each other, too! After having been married 14 years, we decided to have a baby (we didn't want anyone to think we had to get married ;-). She is now grown and serves as a cryptological Hebrew linguist in the USAF. We couldn't be more proud of her character, sense of humor, and personal accomplishments. Her husband also serves our country in the USAF and they currently live overseas (we get to go visit them this Christmas!).
Finally, and most importantly, I am a Christian. I'm not a stereotype Christian, but I am a doctrinal believer. I believe that I am a sinner (yes, I admit it, lol) and that Jesus Christ, being uniquely born, died on the cross for those sins of mine and now lives inside me as He teaches me, comforts me, and gives me understanding of Bible doctrine, helping me to have the mind of Jesus Christ. I know that to many this sounds hokey, but I searched and searched and could not find answers to my life until I met God, face to face, up close & personal, during a most trying time of my life. As a result, my life has been changed. I no longer think as the world thinks, no longer act as the world would have me act, and have not only wonderful problem-solving skills now, but wisdom to understand how life works, courage to face adversities without falling apart, a contentment in all circumstances, and a relaxed mental attitude in the face of gossip, maligning, irritations, and all kinds of life problems.
I laugh at myself a lot, 'cause I'm a klutz, can't have an electronic device or car without breaking it, losing it, or wrecking it, and I am very forgetful and easily distracted due to my illness. God has helped bring me through so much and through Bible doctrine, He has supernaturally changed me from the inside out. I am no longer fearful of not waking up, of not "remembering" any more, of pain and suffering, and of having to say goodbye to people I love. I am free to not have to "fit in", to live my life as God has planned for me (a perfect plan, BTW).

Actually, Judi...Quite a few people (Besides my mom and my fiancee) think that I'm one of the nicest people they've ever met. I'm reliable, I come through when people need help, I am tolerant and slow to anger, I'm funny, honest and defend the rights of others to be heard.

There are always those, of course, who are so righteous, thin-skinned and hyper-sensitive about their chosen idol as to go through life convinced that merely to disagree with them about a petty, meaningless, weeks-old media occurence involving their object of worship, which was quickly and correctly dismissed by the rest of the country as inconsequential and an attempt to make a mountain out of a molehill, is an undeniable indicator of incivility and moral rot. A sure sign that anyone mocking the incident is "not a happy or nice person".

My, my....What WOULD this country be like if touchy, easily-impressed, over-reactive and late-to-the-party crybabies ran the place? I myself try to vote against that kind of outlook, as I believe it to be antithetical to the American way of forebearance and tolerance of differing opinions. People who confuse throwing a non-stop public bitch-fit in front of news cameras with sober, rational statesmanship really shouldn't be in charge of an entire country, in my opinion, and I was congratulating those board members who saw through another vain attempt at generating headline-grabbing controversy, in place of doing the work of coming up with sane, considered ideas for the good of the nation.

If that makes me an unhappy and not-nice person, well....I can live with it. If it actually chaps your ass that much....maybe the problem isn't me.
