My beautiful, healthy new grandson will be on Medicaid. His parents are both fulltime working adults and they will have to put this child on government aide in order for him to get medical care.
I know this is true because we have called numerous insurance companies and have gotten the same response. Today, I called my congressman, Trent Franks office in DC and got the same answer. A child will no longer be able to get, for instance Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Every company Jane and her dad called told her the same thing: because of the new healthcare bill, they will no longer cover a child.
I can be covered, with an inoperable brain tumor but a healthy newborn child cannot. My congressman’s representative could not explain how that works. . .
Jane is a 2nd grade teacher and is insured through the school district but to add Alexander to that policy, it will cost her an additional $470/month. . . PER MONTH. This is the reason she has been searching for private insurance for him. When I told Jane that Medicaid was going to be her only option – before she had made a second call to any insurance company – she said “I don’t even know what that is.” I told her it was basically welfare and her response was “I’m not doing that. I work fulltime.”
This is the goal of the progressives: continue and reinforce the entitlement society. Put all new citizens on the government dole and if possible, do so from birth.
At this point, I am so angry I can’t think straight to write this blog.
