WAVE 3 Editorial - May 16, 2013: Feedback

Many of you vehemently disagreed with our editorial stating Governor Beshear made the logical call on Medicaid expansion.

Donald Murphy emailed: "Anyone who supports this decision is simply promoting an ‘entitlement' mentality and thinks that somebody else will always be around to pay for what they want. The recent Oregon Medicaid study already showed us that there will be no significant effect on health in the state as the designers had originally hoped."

Terrell Heick, Jr. agreed: "When the government is your doctor, they can tell you how to live your life, and fine you for any aberrations. This is a huge mistake!"

Roger Olsen chimed in "Where is the money going to come from? There is no such thing as a free lunch.  It will bite at some point and it will crunch."

And Carole Weiland Threft opined "It is the biggest debacle on the face of the planet. All ya'll are in for a rude awakening."

We appreciate all of your feedback and welcome suggestions for future editorials.
