CHeck this article out and tell me exactly where it goes wrong...

Ive read the article (skimmed it) and while there isn't anything I saw that was wrong, it never said WHY there is a massive amount of new medicaid users (pre obama care, since any effect Obama care MIGHT or might not have on medicaid isnt known yet).....or address that but to me some of it is a separate problem.
It also doesnt talk about uninsured people who use the ER, and that effect.

I am all in favor of slashing abuse from medicaid, so I am hardly one to argue against that.

I am just trying to ALSO slash the use of the ER by uninsured people, which while NOT technically abuse, is a massive waste of money.
