At times discourse on the Internets can be a rich source of solutions to our political problems. One such solution to the Medicaid impasse between the republican controlled Missouri General Assembly and sane people in our state is offered by dpm at Balloon Juice (in reference to Iowa). Take the same Federal money and relabel the program.
….as long as the program is called something like the “Non Obamacare Medical Workhouse Plan for Undeserving Moochers Who Should be Shamed”….
The republican General Assembly just might go for it with slight modification – refuse the Federal dollars and completely defund it. The shaming part could remain.
