NEW YORK -- New research predicts that Obamacare will swell America’s Medicaid population by nearly 16 million individuals. This proposed legislation would welcome nearly one in five Americans into government-run medical welfare. Between 2010 and 2019, the Congressional Budget Office estimates, this single provision would increase state outlays by $33 billion and accelerate federal spending by $345 billion.
Interestingly enough, when the Heritage Foundation documented how Medicaid populations would grow in all 50 states, this phenomenon was most pronounced in Nevada and Montana, the respective homes of Democrat Leader Harry Reid and Finance Chairman Max Baucus, the Senate’s two loudest ObamaCare advocates.

Obamacare’s parameters would boost the average state’s Medicaid-eligible population by 36.6 percent. Americans on Medicaid would jump 15.9 million -- from 43.5 million to 59.4 million. The 14.5 percent on the nation on Medicaid today would climb to 19.9 percent.

He doesn't care. He has this all planned out. The plan doesn't kick in until 2013. Two things will be true 1.) he will not be in office or 2.) he will be a "lame duck" president who can't be reelected anyway. If it doesn't become a reality until '13, why the rush. Oh, I know!!! He has to beat the mid term elections while he stills enjoys the WH and the Congress. After this round of elections with all that has happened since his election, his golden opportunity will be gone and the time would have passed him by.
