Seriously? This question explains a lot, but I'll spell it out.

1. Pharmacy A says "no more Medicaid".
2. Pharmacies B,C, and D suddenly are getting more money-losing Medicaid patients.
3. Pharmacies B,C, and D decide they, too, are sick of this, and they follow suit one-by-one, with each one that leaves shifting more of the burden onto the others.
4. Nobody takes Medicaid.

Now repeat the exercise, only with Medicare.

5. Federal government steps in and mandates that businesses take medicaid patients.
6. Walgreen's Pharmacies close to cut costs, reducing access.

It's the STATE OF WASHINGTON MEDICAID, right?

It's NOT 50 states. Right?
It's NOT Federal. Right?
It's NOT Medicare. Right?
It's NOT Obamacare. Right?


Thought so.

Things never start incrementally. Great point. The fact that all Walgreens, nay, all pharmacies in the country didn't burn down every store and piss on the ashes at the exact time shows that the system works.

What exactly is supposed to be the point? That medical care is too expensive?

Who's arguing.

Washington cut its Medicaid budget, so now there's less healthcare available to Medicaid recipients. Never would have seen that coming.

There is a bright side, though. Now that the government is out of the way, the White Knights of capitalism will surely be riding in to save the day!

This has been coming for a long time. The state of Washington has just made it impossible for drug stores to profit from Medicaid sales. I expect more to follow suit.

So while every other civilized country on this planet is providing UHC that is both cheaper and more effective than what the average American is paying for health insurance right now, Americans are worried that Walgreens might lose a little bit profit because it will be slightly more difficult to turn the screws on said average American when he/she goes shopping for the drug he/she needs to stay alive or what not.

Hmmm,either more people can saved from dying to treatable ailments or some corporations can make slightly more profits. Tough choice.

Every other civilized country on the planet has their national defense subsidized by us at no cost. Where do we get the money to subsidize their national defense so that they can use those resources on programs like health care?

Where again?

Where again?

Where again?

Where do we get the money?

Where again?

Say it one more time.
