    I’m pretty disappointed in our in our Missouri Govt’s new budget for a few reasons…

    10K per person for insurance AND administration for folks “that earn too much to qualify for medicaid”?????

    "Despite voicing concerns that the budget was out of balance, seven of the nine senators who had stalled the budget later joined a narrow majority of colleagues in an 18-16 vote to restore funding for the blind health care benefits. The roughly $28 million program provides health coverage to 2,858 blind people who earn too much to qualify for the state's traditional Medicaid program for the poor.
    The House had voted to scrap the blind health care program and replace it with a new, significantly slimmed down version. The Senate Appropriations Committee had taken a different approach earlier this month, opting to fund the current program with $18 million in general revenues, $1.4 million from another source and cover the remaining gap by charging participants premiums, co-payments and deductibles"

    $28 million is nothing. The welfare pukes in Saint Louis spend this much in 911 transportation instead of using public busses to go to the emergency room for a cold or to refill their methadone scripts.
