13 states rebelling against Obamacare

The Affordable Care Act aims to expand Medicaid coverage for millions of the working poor. But some state leaders aren't willing to take on the extra costs -- even if they lose federal funds along the way.

The not-so-Affordable Care Act?

One of the Affordable Care Act's chief goals is to expand the rolls of Medicaid, qualifying millions of the working poor -- those who earn too much to qualify for the government's health-care coverage today but can't afford private insurance.

But when the law goes into effect next year, the Medicaid expansion won't play out the way President Barack Obama had hoped. That's because a Supreme Court ruling last year puts the decision in the hands of each state's lawmakers -- and so far, 21 states are planning to opt out.

The motivation for sitting out is often financial, with many states concerned that the expansion will strain their coffers to the breaking point, given that they'll be asked to take on 10% of coverage costs starting in 2020. But according to research from Rand Corporation, those states risk losing $8.4 billion in federal funds by snubbing the expansion.

"Any low-income adult that's not currently eligible for Medicaid and currently not insured would lose" if their state opts out of expanded Medicaid, Carter Price, an associate mathematician with Rand, tells MSN moneyNOW. "They are likely to not have access to affordable health insurance, which would increase their financial risk."

Take Shantelle Williams, who makes $7.25 an hour and lives in Texas, one of the states refusing to expand Medicaid. "The politicians don't know where I'm coming from," she told Businessweek. "That decision was for them, it wasn't for me."

Read on to learn more about the 13 biggest states that plan to skip the expansion.

OLDEST BEST WORST CONTROVERSIAL Xtlman (Xtlman) If Obamacare is for everyone, then the House and

If Obamacare is for everyone, then the House and Senate should also be forced onto this plan just

like their constituents. The legislators for the US do not have the people of the US in mind, only

grinding out their own agenda. Mandatory health care should be mandatory for all. Let's start with

Harry Reid and go from there. The minute this is mandated, I am sure you will see a turnaround in

who votes for what plan.

I left Washington State, a place with high welfare and medicaid spending and moved to Indiana a

state with low social service spending. I may not be a fan of my new state but I have seen an

increase in the budget for education (key to getting out of welfare state) and lots of for hire signs.

While the cuts to education and hours for my children (who are still in Seattle) in their minimum wage

jobs have made the news in Washington. Taxes are lower in Indiana because people pay their own

way. I raised my children to stay off the government dole. Both work minimum wage, too few hours

to qualify for benefits and neither is on food stamps or welfare. No one is entitled to government

support for doing nothing.

MARKET UPDATE

[BRIEFING.COM] The major averages ended in mixed fashion as the Dow Jones added 0.1% and the S&P 500 shed 0.2%.

The Dow outperformed the broader market as the relative strength of Universal Technologies (UTX

demanding a monopoly for 'healthcare'

Their vision is socialism. They want everyone to pay for healthcare, but fail to realize that we could just mandate that everyone buy insurance. But no, they have to have some people buy insurance that will not use it to PAY for those that are extreme risks.

Sorry, but BUY your own, and don't pick my pocket to pay for it. Democrats always want someone

else to pay for them. Thieves and scum

Regal you are not comparing apples to apples. We paid extra taxes specifically for SS. This was to supplement our pensions or now IRA's. We were not given a choice we were forced to pay in so yes we are going to collect our benefits that we were forced to pay for. The affordable Healthcare act is totally different. It is basically a federal mandate that we buy something we may or may not be able to afford. And if you can't afford it I am forced to help you pay for it. That is socialism.

every one is talking about costs, not one story directly linking the high health care costs to the true

pharmaceutical companies with their non-curing but addictive overpriced drugs. come on most people
