Rationed Health Care

Folks who rely on Medicaid are about to get short-sheeted. With states running out of money (and the federal government running out of folks willing to lend them money) the time has come for Medicaid patients to get well or die.

The taxpayers can't continue funding your health care.

In some states Medicaid patients will max out their hospital coverage in as little as 10 days.

Arizona, which last year stopped covering certain transplants for several months, plans to limit adult Medicaid recipients to 25 days of hospital coverage a year, starting as soon as the end of October.

Hawaii plans to cut Medicaid coverage to 10 days a year in April, the fewest of any state.
Most private insurance plans don't limit hospital stays.
For fiscal 2012, the association estimated state Medicaid spending will rise 19%, largely because of the end of the federal stimulus dollars.

The program served 69 million people last year.
It gets worse.

In January of 2014 an estimated 18,000,000 people will find themselves on Medicaid courtesy of Obamneycrap.
