Read the article and it's all about MEDICAID. OK so we open the door for easier access to Medicaid which is "free" (except most doctors won't take it) and we're supposed to be surprised that people take advantage of the opportunity. I bet you could increase the servings of vegetables eaten by offering them for nothing. That more people have Medicaid cards doesn't mean better care. There was a large study here in Oregon that demonstrated this clearly. As usual though the Oregonian loves to trumpet when some government backed goody sounds successful. Wait until these folks actually need care and see how well it works.
