CLICK TO READ: Medicaid Cutbacks Divide Democrats by Jonathan Weisman, The Washington Post
"Controversial House legislation designed to gain control of Medicaid growth has split Democrats, with lawmakers in Washington united in their opposition while Democratic governors are quietly supporting the provisions and questioning the party's reflexive denunciations...."
Typical of the Democrats: Can't get together for a cohesive position in support of those in need. So while the State Dems argue for "pragmatism" and the Fed Dems pontificate to make political points against the Republicans, the people who desperately need medicaid are caught in the middle and will be (pardon my French) screwed no matter how it turns out. It's politics as usual in Washington: what's important to Americans is not their concern.
