Medicaid applicants grow as recession widens

AP : Winona Daily News
This is the Catch 22 that so many just don't get. Too many think that Welfare is used by lazy people who can make it on their own if forced to. Most expense is actually medical bills and most of that is for the elderly and disabled. Now more and more people need to turn to the government for medical help and this is the time that so many politicians turn first to the poor to cut. So coverage, eligibility and benifits are proposed to be cut at the same time as those in need increase. Guess it is OK to bail out the guys who come to meetings in their private jets but at the same time cut services to the laid off workers.
