I hate to see the generalization of milking Medicaid . Not every one does. My adult son was stricken by a stroke at the age of 32 (16 years ago) His total income per month is 705.00. He receives 70 hours of help a week. as he is a tetraplaegic due to the stroke. I am his 80 year old mother. If he did not receive this help it would be up to me to physically care for him as I would never, ever allow him to be forced into a nursing home. Please do not say everyone is abusing this very necessary life line to many people

Here we go again, Medicaid fraud is the only reason costs are going up?? C'mon, how about just the fact that the system is totally broken and that we should be able to purchase affordable healthcare. Costs have gone up over 33%.. I don't buy it.
