Sorry, Arkansans Making $1899 Per Year, You Are Too Rich For Medicaid
Here is a fun (!) morning math lesson for you, our brilliant and talented and math-capable readers! If Arkanasas currently provides Medicaid to those making 17 percentof the poverty level in the US, and the poverty line in the US for a single person is $11,170 per year, how little do you have to earn to be eligible? The answer is $1898. That is not very much bread, man!
So would Arkansas like some free federal cashish to expand its eligibility for Medicaid to those making all the way up to the poverty line?
Of course not, DON'T BE RIDICULOSE. Health care is for losers.
