"And Mr. Ryan’s budget proposals involve savage cuts in safety-net programs such as food stamps and Medicaid."
I just posted where food stamp cuts originated from and where the money saved is going. (Actual legislation cited).

Yeah jump on Ryan.

"All of this hostility to the poor has culminated in the truly astonishing refusal of many states to participate in the Medicaid expansion. Bear in mind that the federal government would pay for this expansion,"
Premium Assistance in Medicaid

the federal government will pay 100 percent of the costs of covering newly eligible people. After 2016 the federal contribution will decrease over time to 90 percent by 2020.

Who is to say that further funding may be budgeted lower.
Appropriations and outgo in congress changes every time someone farts.
You can not trust them. The states will be left holding the bag.

Actually states will save money....like in NC cost $850K to implement with Federal funding. The rejected cost is over 3 billion because people will still be going to the emergency rooms and hospitals and the states that reject only make it cost more for the other states. Republican never could do math and our deficit is half of what it use to be so that excuse has played out. Research it yourself folks.
